Lit Bite: Yonder

June 14, 2022

“Every hero has a story…”

Yonder is such a beautiful story! Ali Stanish has written a beautifully layered story about friendship, what it means to be a hero, coming-of-age and realizing the world isn’t as rosy as you’d once believed.

Danny Timmons has looked up to Jack Bailey as a hero for years. But in the small Appalachian town of Foggy Gap, Jack is an outcast. But Danny longs to be as brave as him. Only it takes Jack’s disappearance to show him that being brave doesn’t mean not being afraid.

Yonder has so many important lessons woven into this story. It’s about how to stand up to bullies, and how to fight against injustice in the world in both small ways and big. What it means to have courage, how to use it, and what war does to people. You are sure to have so many rich discussions as you read this story together!

This Lit Bite will take 4 weeks to complete (as written). While flexible age-wise, I recommend it for ages 8 – 12.

Every Lit Bite comes with:

  • a full reading schedule
  • vocabulary
  • discussion questions
  • copywork and dictation taken from the literature
  • activities and project ideas to help you achieve the best reading experience with your children!
