Get ready for an incredible adventure back in time!

Guillermo always dreamed of the day he would be old enough to sail with his father, a captain of the famed cargo ship Coraggio, on the open sea. But each year his father tells him the same thing – “You have the heart of a captain, but for now you are too small. Maybe next summer.

Somehow Guillermo keeps his dream alive, until one day the Coraggio sinks in a terrible accident. Without enough money to replace the ship, his father may have to give up sailing, and what’s worse, Guillermo may have to move away from his hometown and his best friends.

The Boy Who Ran by Michael Selden

ebq4star “To the people in the village, he was an unexceptional-looking boy, neither especially tall nor obviously talented. Few paid much attention to him if they thought of him at all. But the boy could move through the forest in a way that seemed almost magical -and he could run very, very fast.”

When marauders attacked his village, the boy’s dying mother brought him to the edge of the forest and told him to run. She knew that if he could only get away, he might survive. And so the boy ran for days- until he was found by a member of another tribe who brought the boy to live with them.

Though they feed him and provide him with shelter, the villagers do not accept him as one of their own. They refer to him simply as “the boy”, and take little notice of him. And so he spends most of his time in the forest with the animals, where he feels the most at home.

But as the boy begins to watch the people from afar, a struggle begins to emerge in his heart. Is he one of the animals, or one of the people? He knows he must make a choice, and that it will forever change who he is.  Continue reading “The Boy Who Ran by Michael Selden”
