This is a great book for helping to introduce the story of the Acadian Deportation to children. It is told in a way that children can follow fairly well and it did have the impact of the emotions felt by this historic event on my five-year-old (who felt that the women and children being alone on a boat together and cold was very sad and scary).

Lovely story that explains the dreadful Acadian deportation of the past to children while still recognizing the joys of their present day heritage. While this is considered Canadian history, it pertains to the U.S. too, since the Acadians are throughout the U.S. today as Cajuns in Louisiana, Franco-American in New England, etc.
