Set in the beautiful land of windmills, tulips, dikes, and wooden shoes, Hans Brinker is a story of a brother and sister living in the Netherlands. Hans and Gretel experience the daily joys of childhood but also the challenges of hardship and poverty. Their father, Mr. Brinker, has long been disabled by a severe injury. When Hans learns about a possible cure for Mr. Brinker, he commits to collecting the funds necessary for the procedure. Hans, who is gifted at skating along the frozen winter landscape of Holland, enters a skating contest to win a valuable pair of silver skates.

 

Mary Mapes Dodge’s classic children’s tale provides insights into Dutch culture and history and sets forth examples of faith, contentment, and sacrificial love for one another.
