Eddie and the Dangerous Rescue (Vol. 2 The Front Porch Diaries) by Judith Grimme

ISBN: 9780998559223
Ages 9-12 Paperback
Read a sample - Kindle
My thoughts:  This is a good chapter book for young readers. It provides an excellent opportunity to expand vocabulary.

There are extensive family and friend relationships, activities, and conversations showing loving care for one another and good interpersonal skills.

Basically, the story revolves around family and neighbors who take trips during their Christmas holidays. The children participate in finding a tree in the woods they can decorate for Christmas.

They venture forth on various activities and one results in a near tragedy.

Well written for young readers or read-aloud over a period of time to young listeners. I like the activities at the end of the book that can lead to further educational enhancements. Squeaky clean read that is certainly refreshing.

About the book: Eddie Miller always loved his family s Christmas visits to their grandparents farm, and school break fun together with his sister, Lucy, seemed finally to be calming their recent squabbles.

That is, until a reckless mistake left Eddie and Lucy facing a deadly situation. It was the winter of 1967. Would the dangers about to unfold bring them closer together, or tear them apart forever?

The Front Porch Diaries is a light, charming series about friendship, siblings, growing up, and life in the 1960s. Readers will come to adore Lucy, Eddie, Simone, and all the children of East Howard.
