"Sounder" Diorama
Due October 25th

Our Class has been reading the book "Sounder"
By Author William H. Armstrong

The main character, the family's eldest son, is called simply "the boy". His father is a sharecropper  and works hard for very little money. His mother tries hard to make the best out of what little food they have. The "Sounder" of the title is the father's devoted hunting dog (a beagle/bloodhound mix), named for his beautiful voice.

Our Dioramas' are done!
