Brock and Becca Tour Newfoundland and Labrador (Soft Cover)
by Lois Marlatt, B.A., M.Ed.    « View this author's BIO

Excerpt:
We headed up the hill to the museum that used to be the home for the ministers of St. Peter's.
In the museum was a story about a famous dog that saved a boat load of people. It happened on December 16th,, 1919 when the ship, Ethie, ran aground. In the rough seas, no boats could come out and save them. The ship was going down.
They tried to shoot a life line to the shore from the ship, but it got caught up somehow and did not reach the land.
On board was a big Newfoundland dog. When they put him off the ship, they told him to take the rope to those waiting for it on shore. It did, and the 92 people on board were all saved.
Newfoundland dogs are huge, strong dogs with webbed feet. Even today they are used for water rescue.

Synopsis

Brock enjoys touring Newfoundland and Labrador with other families. John, the only other boy on the tour, has lots of good ideas when it comes to teasing the girls. Brock does a little showing off and gets hurt, but not badly. Mom is not amused.
Every day at least one moose can be seen wandering down the road. Icebergs and whales are spotted from shore. Brock's favourite true story is about a dog that saved 92 people from a boat that was going down in a storm.
Everyone on the tour enjoys a boat trip out to the rocky islands where nesting seabirds abound.
Your children will learn about Canada while being entertained with interesting and exciting stories in theBrock and Beccaseries.
