of the Brook My book report is about a very good book. It is called Song of the Brook. Song of the Brook is a Christian fiction book. Matilda Nordtvedt writes it. The book has 124 pages, and I have read this entire book. The main characters are Hilda, Lois, Baby Sigurd, John, and Hilda's Mama; Magda, her Papa; Robert, Ole, Bertha, Thora, and Bestefar. The story begins with Hilda's family on a train on their way to Washington State. They were leaving their home in Minnesota to move to Washington.

When Hilda saw the house she became very sad. It took a lot of cooperation and patience, but they fixed up the house and made it look better. Hilda and John found out that they had a creek and a maple tree on their property. They all went on an adventure, and Lois got stung by nettles. They went so far into the woods that they got lost, and could barely find their way back home. Even though their new home was not what they wanted it to be, they were starting to get used to it. They liked the brook; the trees and they even found an old shack far back in the woods. Hilda said the maple tree belonged to her, and she believed the brook sang to her.

Hilda family got settled in and they met a family named the Olsons'. Hilda and her family liked the Olsons' because they were down home people and not fancy like Thora's family. The Olson children were also very nice, and they showed Hilda, John and Lois their new school. They all became good friends. One day...
