Product Description:

Johanna's father gives her a big responsibility. "Take care of the little riders," he says as he is leaving for his next sea voyage. Johanna is staying with her grandparents in Holland in the same house her father grew up in. Right across the street is the church clock. When the clock strikes, twelve little metal riders ride out on white horses. When the war starts and the Germans invade Holland, how far will Johanna go to protect the little riders?

Please note, the recommended book, The House of Sixty Fathers , is currently unavailable from the publisher. This title may be available through your library system.

Some guides and resources contain Christian content while others do not; contact us for additional information.

This little book is a great read aloud my daughters ages 7 and 9 and me It kept us on the edge of our seat as our heart wrapped around the characters and gently taught us about difficult topics regarding the Nazis and World War II I would highly recommend it to anyone with children 6 and older as a read aloud or as a reader for children 9 and older
