In 1707, eight-year-old Sarah travels with her father to build a new home in the Connecticut wilderness. Sarah is afraid when she hears animals in the night. She is afraid when she meets her Indian neighbors. She is especially afraid when she is left with an Indian family while her father goes back to get the rest of their family. But when Sarah remembers her mother's parting words, Keep up your courage, Sarah Noble, she learns to be brave even when she's afraid. Through Sarah's example, young listeners will learn much about courage, faith, and inter-cultural friendship.

Based on a true story, The Courage of Sarah Noble also teaches children about colonial life in America. Alice Dalgliesh has written many well-loved books for young people. When heard in narrator Barbara Caruso's friendly tones, this distinguished contribution to children's literature becomes even more inviting.

    " This was another fantastic read-aloud. Set in early 1700s America, the simple story inspired courage and bravery in the face of the unknown. Emma was absolutely captivated and we read the entire second half in one sitting. "

    " Alayna's review: Sarah and her father go on a journey to Connecticut to build a house. Her family stays behind. Sarah stays in a cave with a fence built around it. She becomes friends with some Indian children. She reads to them from the bible. When her father finishes the house, Tall John, an Indian, cares for her while her father leaves to retrieve the rest of the family. It was such a dangerous journey to Connecticut that her father wants her to stay safe with the Indians. She learns of the ways of the Indians and she teaches them English. She loves staying with the Indian children. When her father finally returns, she is sad to leave the Indians but she is happy to be reunited with her mother. She teaches her mother that the Indians are not savages. I loved the story because it teaches you all people are the same even if they speak another language. The color of a person's skin doesn't matter. They are still people who should be treated with respect. The Indians only defended themselves from the white people and northern Indians who were attacking them. "

    " Great and simple book of the life of one Sarah Noble. Sarah must dig deep for her courage while she travels with her father to their new homestead and while he leaves her to bring back the rest of the family. Good lesson on inner strength. "

    " Child narrated through the eyes of young Sarah Noble, this wonderful tale tells the thoughts and fears individuals had of the Native Americans and the trust that Sarah and her father had. "
