Free download The Boy on the Porch 105 From Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech comes a singular story that reminds us of the surprising connections that bloom when unconditional love and generosity prevail For when a young couple finds a boy asleep on their porch their lives take an unexpectedly joyous turnWhen John and Marta found the boy on the porch they were curious naturally as to why he was there and they didn't expect him to stay not. This beautifully written book reads like an adult short story The child Jacob in the story is mute and the point of view comes strictly from the adults Jacob plays draws and interacts with the people and animals but he never speaks out loud It reminds me of the book The Prince Who Fell from the Sky that has a boy who has no dialogue in the story This techniue makes me identify with the adult voice and seems off kilter for the target audience of children I liked the adult perspective on the uncertainties of being a parent but will young readers connect with the characters and plot I m not sure The pacing might be slow for some young readers but oh my I do like how Sharon Creech puts sentences together Just as Jacob taps out songs and sounds
