Miss Bridie Chose a Shovel

Miss Bridie Chose a Shovel

(2004)
A Picture Book by

 
The journey begins for a young immigrant named Miss Bridie. It is a journey of hope and uncertainty, a journey that will take her to a new land, a new home, and - if she has chosen wisely - a good life.
With elegant woodcuts, Caldecott medalist Mary Azarian brings to life Leslie Connor's spare story of a life rich with blessings, yet not without challenges. Here is a lyrical tribute to the millions of immigrants who left their homes to begin anew in America - and an enchanting look at how one woman carves out a life with the help of a common shovel.
