HarperCollins I Can Read level 3.

In 1868, Sweden is devastated by drought and Carl Erik's family is starving. Hope reaches them when a letter from their uncle in America arrives, inviting them to "the land of opportunity." 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. Finally allowed into the country after passing through immigration, Carl Erik exclaims, "Now we are arrived."

    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.
