My Freedom Trip: A Child’s Escape from North Korea

$11.95

This deeply moving story of a child’s escape in the dark of night from North Korea to South Korea is based on memories of the author’s mother. Just prior to the outbreak of the Korean War, young Soo secretly crosses the 38th parallel, hoping to join her father on the other side. Because it is dangerous for more than one person to cross at a time, her mother waits behind. At every step there seems to be enemy soldiers, but the child remembers her mother’s words—”Be brave, Soo!”—which continues to sustain her even years later. In spare and elegant prose, the authors tell a story of a young girl’s faith and courage. Lustrous oil paintings capture precious moments when the family is together as well as the frightening danger of the journey in this NCSS/CBC Notable Social Studies Trade Book.
Ages: 5-7
Grades:  Kindergarten and up
