Seekers of the Lost Boy

The homeschooling family in Seekers of the Lost Boy enjoy experiencing adventures together while reading aloud.  Little do they realize, however, that one day they will have a real live adventure of their own.   When studious and serious Simon (12) discovers a bottle on the water’s edge, he imagines pirates and all kinds of ancient folklore. But when he discovers a message inside the bottle, he and his twin siblings, Kim and Nic, are thrust into an adventure unlike anything they’ve ever experienced.  The biggest quest?  Finding the person who wrote the message and uncovering the answer to his question.  Fast-paced, exciting and yet poignant, Seekers of the Lost Boy explores the darkness of forced removals (from District Six during the apartheid years of South Africa), the healing of forgiveness and the power of discovering truth.

The unit study accompanies the novel and explores many of the themes raised in the story.  If you are a teacher, parent or independent student keen to use Seekers of the Lost Boy as a springboard into all sorts of educational discoveries, then this unit study may just be what you need.  While the study is aimed at students between the age range of 9 – 15 years old, the study also includes activities that will stretch the older student.  As an added bonus, homeschooling families get a full section dedicated to younger members of the family, with activities and four coloring-in pages aimed especially at preschoolers and kids in grades 1 – 3.
