They decide to sell the farm and go to America to make a new life. The packing, the goodbyes, and the trip itself are difficult; yet the children eagerly wonder when they might get wheat bread with butter in America.

    The book is good for 1-2nd

    Posted by Paula N. on 3rd May 2015

    The book is good for a first or second-grade reader. My son is in second grade and reads at a fourth grade level. I got this one for him because he has never done a study guide like yours before. The study guide has definitely been a good thing to stretch his thinking and writing skills.
