The House on Dirty-Third Street

by Jo Kittinger

Mockingbird Award Book
Kids Wings Award

2013 Christopher Award

The day the girl saw their house on Thirty-Third Street, she was shocked. She had imagined that moving with her mother would be an exciting adventure, not at nightmare. Even though all the other houses in this neighborhood were old and rundown, hers was the worst. It was old, filthy, strewn with trash, and falling down. Windows were broken, paint was peeling, and furniture was trashed. How could she ever be happy again? Her mother told her that she had to look at it with the eyes of FAITH. But as they cleaned and repaired, it was Mom who became discouraged.

The roles changed and it was the girl who had to convince Mom to have faith and to ask for a little help. But who would they ask? Who could they trust in this old rundown neighborhood? Could it be her neighbors? Yes! Would it be the church? Yes! Would she find help at Sunday School? Yes!

Our Kids' Wings literature guide has discussion cards, readers theater, puzzles, math, and a map that will extend your fun!
