The Skippack School by Marguerite de Angeli

The Skippack School

By Marguerite de Angeli
Level 5

Eli and his family leave Germany and come to America across the Atlantic Ocean. They make their new home in Penn’s woods. This is a gentle story about life in early America. It is well written, but it is slow paced and may be difficult for some children to get through on their own.
