LEO OF ALASKA

The only home six-year-old Leo Paniloff has ever known is with his Uncle Louie on an island just off the coast of Alaska. But when Uncle Louie gets sick, Leo suddenly finds himself amidst strangers, a guest of the children's home run by the Evangelical church of a neighboring island. At first he feels lonely and hopeless here, but with the help of the church workers, he gradually accepts the other children as brothers and sisters, and when Uncle Louie is cured by the church doctors and returns to Leo with a wonderful surprise, Leo knows that he now has two homes one with his uncle and one in the church. Simply illustrated in black and white, this pleasant story introduces the young reader to life in Alaska and explores the various functions of the Evangelical church there.
