Product Description:

Fifteen year old Josh is facing trials that seem far removed from our time, but were very real to many people during the Great Depression. He has a deep love for music and is very talented, and he and his friend Howie find an escape when they play together. However, they only get to practice some days after school, for times are hard and Josh's family was forced to sell their piano to pay for food and other necessities. After Josh's father loses his job, his depression turns to anger, which he often directs at Josh. Between his mother ironing clothes all day and Josh delivering papers for three hours every morning, the family has barely enough to keep themselves fed. After an especially hurtful fight, Josh decides to leave home, and he and Howie quickly form a plan to travel around as musicians. Josh's fragile ten-year old brother, Joey, hears of their plans, and he is determined to accompany them, despite Josh's firm objections. An unforeseen tragedy strikes the trio, and their lives are changed forever. This hardship sparks a deeply moving trail of tears, shame, guilt, sickness, responsibility, and struggle to survive.

Category Description for Beautiful Feet History & Geography:

Beautiful Feet curriculum takes a multi-level, living book approach to teaching history, geography and world cultures, using easy to use Guides for the teacher and engaging, well-written literature for the student. The Guides provide book lists, chapter readings, discussion and research questions, background information, website links, answer keys, and more. See our website for lists of literature resources to accompany each guide. Most guides provide content for one year of study, with the exception of Geography through Literature and Western Expansion. The latter two are recommended to be completed together for one year of study. Numbers of lessons vary, and are scheduled 1 to 4 days per week. Recommended Timelines are available individually or in a set of two. Timelines are cardstock and include the figures referenced in the study. Students will need to color, cut and assemble the timeline and figures. History and geography come alive with these well done literature guides. See our website for required books for each guide. Some guides and resources contain Christian content while others do not; contact us for additional information.
