Read in April, 2004

The last time we moved, this book somehow got packed in our book boxes from our Grandma's house. Once we were unpacking our books in our new home (1000 miles from Grandma's house!) I found this book and devoured it in just a couple of sittings. I told my mom about it and she promptly began reading it aloud to all of us. We've read it aloud to each other at least two more times since then and it's on all of our "favorite book lists."

The story centers around a shy 6 year old boy, Benjamin McDonald. He loves animals and enjoys mimicking their movements and sounds. Animals, farm animals and wild animals alike, do not feel threatened by little Ben and allow him to follow them and even touch them.

The incident described in this book is based on a true story of a shy little boy, a motherly badger, and a miracle at Hawk's Hill.
