The 16-page Kids' Wings unit for Thunder by the Sea by Joan Hiatt Harlow is a great guide for literature groups. In the story, thirteen-year-old Tom Campbell has grown up in a mission orphanage on the Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland, always dreaming of a real family, a real house, and a real dog of his very own. Now, his life is beginning to change as he is sent to Back o' the Moon Island to join and work with a sweet family, fisherman and his wife who practice Biblical strength to help stand strong when the problems come. What a pleasure to find a truly beautifully written, exciting story, that shows a typical Christian family's values standing strong against evil!
