Product Description:

This fictitious novel tells the story of a patriot spy in the Revolutionary War. This spy shows incredible courage while trying to smuggle information to General Washington in a loaf of bread. To add to the suspense, this spy is just a young, timid girl named Ellen Toliver. When things don't go as planned and Ellen is shipped on a boat with British soldiers to a place far from her destination, she courageously continues. Throughout the many obstacles, Ellen wonders if she will ever get her message through or see her family again. ~ Rachel S.

Publisher Description:

When her grandfather is injured, 10-year-old Ellen Toliver replaces him on a top-secret patriotic mission. Disguised as a boy, she manages to smuggle a message to General George Washington.

 Please note that the following resources are not currently available from us: Why Not, Lafayette?; Seven Miles to Freedom: The Robert Smalls Story. These may be available through your local library system.

Two courses here, at different grade levels. Teaching a Providential view of America's story, and using a Literature approach, these guides break down the study into daily lesson plans, spanning the Vikings to the Civil War (1000 A.D. to 1865). Students keep notebooks of their work throughout the year. Lesson plans include various activities to correlate with the study as students "read" their way through history, consuming some of the best age-appropriate historical literature. Newly revised guides are expanded and now in full color. They also include web links, comprehension questions, character studies and more activities.




Highlighting well-written books, students go deeper into historical events and people at the Intermediate level. Short writing prompts, note booking, and higher-level questions enhance learning.
