Riding Freedom - 'Pam Munoz Ryan',  'Pam Munoz Ryan' This chapter book is based on the true story of an orphan girl, Charlotte, who pretends she is a boy so that she can become a stage coach driver in 19th Century America. The story moves fast because it chronicles important events in her life and glosses over the rest. She remains incognito throughout and even secretly votes in a Presidential Election. The book offers many opportunities to discuss rights, responsibilities and rules with children. We had some fun discussing when it is okay to break the rules.
