Miss Bridie Chose a Shovel
Great illustrations made from woodcuts go along with this story about a young immigrant. When she leaves home in 1856, rather than bringing a clock or porcelain figure as a keepsake of her old home in Ireland, the practical Miss Bridie selects a shovel to accompany her to a new life in America in 1856. Children will be engaged as they follow the eventful, inspiring life of this woman and the ways she uses the shovel.
