“The Witch Of Blackbird Pond”

Description from CAS: My Uncle gave me the book "The Witch Of Blackbird Pond" when I was young. I loved it, and have kept it all these years, but now I'm going to pass it on to my Niece in hopes that she'll love it as much as I did.

    cool pick CAS! maybe if you read the book to her it will become a fav cuz of the time spent together reading. (don’t know book or age but my girls liked me reading to them till they were maybe about Middle school aged)

    Thanks Chicks! Mystic Chick my whole family is very big into reading. Her Dad even collects books, and she likes to read. She just turned 10 in April, and the book is geared for tweens.

    Pats for Roxy!

    The book is about a young woman during Colonial times who helps an old woman considered a Witch. It’s nicely written, and won the Newbury-Caldicot (sp?) award.

    Oh gosh…I’ve read it about 20 times…it’s one of those books that feels like new after coming back to it after awhile…What I love about it is that it’s written in such a way that feels right for either an adult or a child…that’s a wonderful talent!

    CAS you’re inspiring me to reread this book (in my abundant ‘spare time’ ha…) – I too read this book as a teen many years ago and really enjoyed it, your Pick is very lovely w/ the cool blues, blacks and rainbow amazonite – unexpected with the last… but gorgeous nevertheless! and that new GG robin head bead is soooo cute!!!! :)
