I. T. Thurston. Theodore, poor, ragged, and homeless, sits on the curbstone dejectedly. It seems nobody cares about him. At that moment, a voice above him asks, “Well, my boy, aren’t you coming into church?” It is the voice of the bishop, who influences the boy deeply. Theo’s generosity is shown in carrying bread, soup, or bright flowers into the poor tenement houses. A true story of the 1800s that you will enjoy reading again and again. 192 pages; paper; Joyce Nolt.
