I was very pleased with the quality of this study guide. I loved the integration of vocabulary, literature skills, questions about the story on different levels, and Biblical principles and character qualities. This is one of my all time favorite novels, and I was thrilled to see such a thoughtful, challenging, Christian resource. Well done; I'm enjoying using it in my classroom.
