Letty Wright is beside herself. The British are coming, and she doesn’t have time to catch her flock of geese. Instead, she tries to chase Solomon, her gander, and his wives out of the barnyard.
But he won’t listen, and her family is about to leave without her. Letty gives up the chase, and instead leaves a note on the mantel.
Children will enjoy reading what happens to Letty and Solomon in The 18 Penny Goose by Sally M. Walker. This I Can Read It book is perfect for beginning readers. Don’t miss the author’s note at the end explaining the true story of Letty and her goose!
