Journal Entry 1 by JessicaEby from Cambridge, Ontario Canada on Tuesday, June 25, 2019
I bought this book at a charity shop in my hometown of Cambridge, Ontario.

The Sky is Falling is the first book in a trilogy, and the trilogy as a whole was among my favourites growing up (this one especially though). It's one I've read again and again over the years. It is a historical fiction novel for kids about young English children who are sent to Canada for safety during the Second World War.

This book is a winner of the Mr. Christie's Book Award, The Canadian Library Association Book of the Year for Children Award, and the Geoffrey Bilson Award for Historical Fiction for Young People.

Here is a link to the CBC Books page about this book:

It was also mentioned in passing on CBC's Morningside when the final instalment of the trilogy was released in 1993:

Journal Entry 2 by JessicaEby at Six Mile Lake Provincial Park in Port Severn, Ontario Canada on Monday, July 13, 2020

Released 3 wks ago (7/13/2020 UTC) at Six Mile Lake Provincial Park in Port Severn, Ontario Canada


My husband and I are in Barrie for the weekend. He needs to keep up an exercise routine right now for health reasons, and we were craving some fresh air and nature so we went for a short daytrip hike at Six Mile Lake.
During our hike I left this book in the park. I put it in a protective bag and left it hanging from a signpost on the David Milne Trail. I chose this book for this location because Six Mile has a place in my past-- not the park but the lake itself was my introduction to Muskoka when I was a teenager, and if you read this book you'll see how that relates!
