Description

The Newbery Medal&;winning classic novel about the courage and faith&;and the love of a dog&;that give a family strength in the face of inhumanity. This middle grade novel is an excellent choice for tween readers in grades 5 to 6, especially during homeschooling. It&;s a fun way to keep your child entertained and engaged while not in the classroom.

The boy knows that times are tough for his family. Every night, his father goes out hunting with their great coon dog, Sounder, to try to put food on the table. But even with the little they bring back, there is still never enough for the family to eat.

When the boy awakens one morning to a sweet-smelling ham on the table, it seems like a blessing. But soon, the sheriff and his deputies come to the house and take the boy&;s father away in handcuffs. Suddenly the boy must grow up fast in a world that isn&;t fair, keeping hope alive through the love he has for his father&;s faithful dog, Sounder. 

Readers who enjoy timeless dog stories such as Old Yeller and Where the Red Fern Grows will find much to love in Sounder, even as they read through tears at times.
