Bo at Ballard Creek
Bo at Ballard Creek | Kirkpatrick Hill
5 posts | 4 read
It's the 1920s, and Bo was headed for an Alaska orphanage when she won the hearts of two tough gold miners who set out to raise her, enthusiastically helped by all the kind people of the nearby Eskimo village. Bo learns Eskimo along with English, helps in the cookshack, learns to polka, and rides along with Big Annie and her dog team. There's always some kind of excitement: Bo sees her first airplane, has a run-in with a bear, and meets a mysterious lost little boy. Bo at Ballard Creek by Kirkpatrick Hill is an unforgettable story of a little girl growing up in the exhilarating time after the big Alaska gold rushes.

Bo at Ballard Creek | Kirkpatrick Hill

This novel is about a young girl named Bo who is born in Alaska and is abandoned by her mother as a baby. She is then taken to an orphanage where she is adopted by two male gold miners where she grows up learning two languages, English and Eskimo. This story could be read by 4th-grade students but would also be a great read-aloud for any age group as it even has pictures included throughout. Scott O'Dell Award winner.

Bo at Ballard Creek by Kirkpatrick Hill is about Bo, an Alaskan orphan who was adopted and raised by two locals that teach him the Alaskan way.

This is a great read-aloud for younger readers to introduce the idea of the gold mine and historical fiction!

Would love to use this in my classroom someday!
