I did have a little trouble with this book, though, because of the whole Rose component of the story By trouble I mean I m a pushover for that kind of thing and can easily be manipulated into any emotional corner desired Was I a mess when we discover what s stored at the cabin Big deal Lots of grown men get a little verklempt reading young adult fiction.
Seriously I m pretty sure I can t be the only one.
it s very sad in the first 14 pages What I m surprised that this is the same author as Walk Two Moons.
well I guess I m not surprised, but the difference in quality could not be any different It s another quirky girl finding herself after a loved one leaves her life But this book was just odd I don t even want my kids reading it The plot was weird and the lessons were not what I want my kids reading.
The aunt and the whole drawer thing is off, but it s even worse that she kept her dead baby in one And then the creepy shrine and dolls and world that they ran away to What I can look past the young girl spending 10 days at a time alone in the wilderness, especially since dad flies by to check up on her, but that long with the rest of the book is a turn off Don t even get me started on the stalker, creepy older boy Seriously This is not ok Boys, DO NOT take a page out of this kid s books This is not how you get a girl When she says no, it means no I tend to think people go overboard on the no means no idea, but this is just one big N O Get a clue and stop being a creep And then the stealing Huh This is portrayed as not ok, but it was still glorified And Zinny wanted him to steal a horse because she was so desperate Kids should not be in situations like that And then Zinny is ok with his actions Not at first, but then she becomesandok And super ok by the end No Why is this ok to portray I could go on and on Things that don t usually bug me did in this book because she much was off Like how Zinny didn t feel like she belonged in her family, which is big and loud Her parents don t try to help They just let her go out on an odd trail on her own and check in every 10 days Yes please, child Leave and be gone for weeks and only check in for a bit I think this is a great way to help you feelloved and accepted And why do big families have to be so chaotic I don t have a big family I didn t come from a big family But I m offended that they have to be portrayed this way.
overall I don t want my kids to read this because of the morals it seems to preach Theft, creepy ways to deal with dead people, stalking, not standing up for yourself, leaving your family, not healthy self discovery, not healthy coping skills, and so muchJust wow Super shocked and sad Re reading Sharon Creech books is such a joy Unlike many of the books I loved as a child, Creech s books stand the test of time and still resonate with me as an adult.
I loved this book It s a great book that makes you laugh If you haven t read this before, you must read it I loved this book so much It was such a beautiful story about a girl who lost her Aunt Jessie The book is called Chasing Redbird because Jessie s husband Nate, called her Redbird Along the way Zinny Taylor finds a hidden trail I loved this book because it was really interesting and adventurous to read.
I always know I ll like Sharon Creech s books I d recently read Walk Two Moons and yesterday I needed a new middle grade to read so I grabbed Chasing Redbird off my daughter s shelf And I had no idea it was a companion book to Walk Two Moons I was evenenchanted by Zinnia Taylor and her family than I was by Sal and the Hiddles Zinnia is lost in her big family She hides in plain sight by being the quiet one She has always found solace with her beloved Aunt Jessie and Uncle Nate who live in an adjoining home But now Aunt Jessie is gone and Uncle Nate seems to be losing it, so Zinny needs something else She finds the beginning of an old overgrown trail near their property and begins clearing it, discovering in the process that it s the remains of a trail that once went twenty miles from her town of Bybanks to nearby Chocton She devotes herself to clearing the entire length of the trail, and meanwhile finds herself drawn to the sweet attentions of Jake Boone, who has newly returned to Bybanks.
Simply an enchanting story I couldn t put it down Sharon Creech is nothing but a dad blasted treasure With profound insight, Sharon Creech reminds all of us how insular our world is as a child Twelve year old Zinny spends the summer uncovering a path she found that leads from her farm to the shores of the Ohio River With each foot of dirt and weeds she pushes away she gains insights into her family she had always taken for granted and understands that many of her childhood assumptions are untrue Zinny assumes her words and actions affect the huge life issues she witnesses throughout her childhood In Chasing Redbird we witness Zinny s world grow to encompass sorrow, beauty, grief, and happiness in which she is not in control Even though I found myself rushing to find out what secret or mystery was going to be uncovered next, I hated for the book to end.
Chasing Redbird is written by Sharon Creech, and is about thirteen year old Zinny Taylor who lives in Kansas on her families farm She grows up with her two older brothers and her Aunt Redbird and Uncle Nate She grows up becoming best friends with her cousin Rose all her childhood until she suddenly dies, of whooping cough at a young age Zinny spends almost every second she can trying to find a way to get away from her family and the seldom privacy of her small rural town, where everybody knows everybody When her aunt dies and everything seems like it is falling apart, she takes on a load of guilt thinking that she was the reason for Rose s death and also the reason for her aunt s death She finds a small trail in the near by woods on her family farm When she just wants to be alone she finds that camping in the woods is one of the best places to be As she makes a small place of her own in the woods she figures out many life problems and how to handle them As her uncle Nate is having delusions about his dead wife, Zinny tries as hard as she can to help him make it through the pain As she tries to find faith and love in just her simple place in the woods and simple family, she learns that sometimes it is not easy to find your place or reason in life but it all will work out if you just believe in yourself.
