    Critique The book is about a boy named Jip he is a young boy Jip lives on this farm, Sheldon was also a boy that growed up with Jip, they both have to do chores around the farm This book is very interesting, there were parts in the book that made you get on the edge of your seat because how intense it gets The book can make you feel happy when something good happens to Jip The book can also make you get sad because of the things that Jip did and what happened to him This book is about some Critique The book is about a boy named Jip he is a young boy Jip lives on this farm, Sheldon was also a boy that growed up with Jip, they both have to do chores around the farm This book is very interesting, there were parts in the book that made you get on the edge of your seat because how intense it gets The book can make you feel happy when something good happens to Jip The book can also make you get sad because of the things that Jip did and what happened to him This book is about someones life what happened to them I think the author wants to show how child labor is It affected me by showing how child labor is, the author showed me what Jip had to do in his life so he could survive The book did poorly on skipping a lot into his life without saying anything that was important when they skipped The author described his life well, Jip was a kid that got lost Jip got lost when he was a newborn he fell off the back of a wagon I Think this was a good book if you like stories that are sad and then can get happy all of a sudden, you should read this book This book can show what kids had to do if they were poor and lived on a farm

    Jip is an interesting character An orphan, as the book opens, Jip works hard on the poor farm, thinks he cannot learn, and makes the most out of his life He appreciates the friendships he has with other poor farm folk, and feels proud about his special ability to work with the animals of the farm But he does wonder why no one came to get him after he fell off the cart that left him where the poor farm people found him when he was a baby They have called him Jip because they assume his folk m Jip is an interesting character An orphan, as the book opens, Jip works hard on the poor farm, thinks he cannot learn, and makes the most out of his life He appreciates the friendships he has with other poor farm folk, and feels proud about his special ability to work with the animals of the farm But he does wonder why no one came to get him after he fell off the cart that left him where the poor farm people found him when he was a baby They have called him Jip because they assume his folk must have been gypsies As the story progresses, Jip has the opportunity to make new friends, and these friends become part of his discovery of who he really is Katherine Paterson shares pertinent details of mid nineteenth century life in Vermont, including local people s thinking about slavery and the laws that forced Northerners to return freed slaves to their owners Learning about Jip s life was enjoyable

    I agree with my sister who called this book an exquisite little gem of historical fiction I read it first and recommended it to her, but she beat me to reviewing it Wendy, you always have been good at turning a phrase Anyway, this story is set in pre Civil War New England The protagonist is a likeable boy who was a foundling He lives on the town poor farm with an assortment of odd characters and animals Then one day a sinister stranger comes to town and seems to take an unusual intere I agree with my sister who called this book an exquisite little gem of historical fiction I read it first and recommended it to her, but she beat me to reviewing it Wendy, you always have been good at turning a phrase Anyway, this story is set in pre Civil War New England The protagonist is a likeable boy who was a foundling He lives on the town poor farm with an assortment of odd characters and animals Then one day a sinister stranger comes to town and seems to take an unusual interest in the boy, Jip Katherine Paterson is a two time Newbery Award winning author But I like this book better than either of her award winners To quote Wendy again, it is a touching and tender tale about the way we treat others around us I love what it says about the infinite worth of each soul I highly recommend this book

    Jip is a story of the evilness of slavery, of poverty, of classism, of hope and the wonderful commitment to safety via the underground railroad Jip so named because allegedly as a baby, he fell off a wagon while traveling with gypsies , lives and works on a poor farm, uneducated and mistreated, still his love of others shines through.When an older man deemed a lunatic is sent to live on the farm, Jip soon befriends him and looks upon him as a father he never had When an untrustworthy man come Jip is a story of the evilness of slavery, of poverty, of classism, of hope and the wonderful commitment to safety via the underground railroad Jip so named because allegedly as a baby, he fell off a wagon while traveling with gypsies , lives and works on a poor farm, uneducated and mistreated, still his love of others shines through.When an older man deemed a lunatic is sent to live on the farm, Jip soon befriends him and looks upon him as a father he never had When an untrustworthy man comes to the farm, Jip s intuition tells him all is not well.When Jip learns the reason why he was abandoned as a child, he also understands why, with the help of loving Quakers, he needs to flee to Canada.Time and time again in my readings, I find Quakers are portrayed in a positive, social conscious way I vow to learnabout them.If anyone has suggestions, please point me in the right direction Thanks

    Jip, a young boy who lives on the poor farm has no knowledge of his family or any clue about where he came from other than the oft told story that he fell off the back of a gypsy wagon when he was three years old Then one day a peculiar stranger comes to town and starts poking around and asking about Jip s history.This book does not have a good beginning It took me a solid three chapters to get totally into it, but once I was in, I was hooked There are so many themes in Jip, I wanted to stop Jip, a young boy who lives on the poor farm has no knowledge of his family or any clue about where he came from other than the oft told story that he fell off the back of a gypsy wagon when he was three years old Then one day a peculiar stranger comes to town and starts poking around and asking about Jip s history.This book does not have a good beginning It took me a solid three chapters to get totally into it, but once I was in, I was hooked There are so many themes in Jip, I wanted to stop to write a lesson every few chapters It promotes kindness, compassion, love of reading, and many other values I am putting this on my list of books to potentially teach to young middle schoolers

    Growing up on a poor farm, Jip has always believed he fell off a gypsy wagon as a small child and could never understand why nobody tried to find him The appearance of a persistent stranger holds the promise for an answer, but Jip doesn t trust the man.This book was recommended to me by a colleague as a great boy s story It was a wonderful read.
