  • Historical Novel

    This historical novel is a wonderful book for Upper Elementary students to experience the events of the bombing of Ebenezar church in Birmimngham and gives a perspective of what it may have been like to live during this time from the view of Kenny and his brother. Any book that keeps the interest of children in this age group is terrific. The children that read this novel were captivated by its content and ask ed many questions.
