Fourteen-year-old David Lattimer is coming of age, and the family tradition of hunting the Christmas Goose has now been passed down to him. When David sets out with Rose, his ten-year-old sister, he will need more than just his grandfather’s shotgun, he will need every bit of strength and wisdom that he has.

This delightful short story is sure to captivate the young reader’s imagination. A terrific first book for starting a reluctant reader onto a path of reading and enjoying books. Don’t pass up

A Father's Love

This was a good short story. The courage of a young son who risk his life to get the gun so he could protect his sister. The thought that his father would be angry that he did not get the goose and then to be rescued by their father. It was lovely that the dad was only glad that they were safe from the bear.
