More information

Young Hans Brinker and his sister, Gretel, live in Holland, the colorful land of sparkling canals and great flapping windmills. But the Brinkers are very poor, and the father is ill. How can Hans help his family survive the long Dutch winter that lies ahead? When Hans learns about a race and the prize—a pair of shiny silver skates—he sees a chance to restore security to the Brinker household. But to help his family triumph over hardship, the determined boy and his sister must overcome some almost impossible challenges before the race even begins. Hans Brinker has been classic of children’s literature for over a century. Providing a fascinating look at daily life in Holland, it has inspired generations of American children to appreciate the people and culture of this industrious country. It is also the heartwarming story that made this Dutch boy a symbol for goodness and devotion.
