Just David

By Eleanor H. Porter
Level 9

From the author of Pollyanna, comes an absolute treasure: Just David. David was raised in a cabin up in the mountains. His loving, devoted father taught him to love nature and music. When David’s father is ill, he decides to take David to his relatives that the boy has never met. But partway into the journey, his father dies. David does not know the names of his relatives or even the last name of his father, which his father had a reason for not telling him. This story is not just about what happens to David, but also what happens to all those who enter his life after this tragic event. This is literature at its very best: beautifully written, completely wholesome, delightfully engaging, and intensely inspiring.
