Mountain Born was read as part of our curriculum It honestly is not one I would have chosen for my son who usually picks stories with more adventure The content involves a boy Peter who lived in the past (specific dates not given in the book) in a remote mountainous area on the outskirts of a village apparently Peter's family is a farming family primarily involved in raising sheep The entire story revolves around Peter and his relationship with his cosset (pet lamb) Biddy Now my own son is a city boy who has never been really close to a sheep honestly and the farming life is completely unknown to him He is drawn to action-packed tales of detectives robots and sci-fi adventures So you can guess I was hesitant about this book However the simple story of a boy and his pet easily transcended the differences between Zach and Peter and Zach sat enthralled day after day as we read this book aloud together By the end he was begging for more about Peter and we did read the sequel "A Place for Peter " finding it in library storage The language in this book can be challenging and so can the syntax at times being written a while ago However reading it together my son had no trouble overcoming that relating to Peter easily and gaining some new vocabulary in the process
