Thy Friend, Obadiah by Brinton Turkle*

**Caldecott Honor Book
Obadiah, a Quaker, is tired of a seagull following him everywhere he goes.  His brothers and sister tease him about "his friend".  Then one day, the seagull disappears.  When Obadiah sees the seagull in need of help, will he assist him or leave him to suffer?
I loved this sweet book that depicts the Quaker way of life on Nantucket.
Strategies: inferring about vocabulary (First Day, Meeting), building schema
*Highly recommend.
-Borrowed from the library.
