Review and Comments
If you are looking for a book full of action, Prince Martin Wins His Sword by Brandon Hale is a good choice. It is a story of courage, friendship, and the strength and faithfulness of a father.
Prince Martin lives in a castle surrounded by knights, their code of behavior, and their amazing weapons. Martin aspires to have his very own sword one day. He also has an undisclosed dream to own a faithful and brave dog, but the sword is his great desire. His father, the King, wisely makes the judgment that Martin is much too young for a sword and that his staff and sling is enough for him at this point in his life. He explains that when Martin demonstrates that he is brave, loyal, and true, he will be deemed worthy to own a sword. This is a goal Martin hopes to reach, but he has no idea how he will achieve those very lofty traits.Continue reading Demonstrating Character: A Review of ‘Prince Martin Wins his Sword’
