About-

This is a biographical storybook about Ted Studebaker. Ted grew up on a farm in western Ohio. He won awards as an athlete and was active in the local Church of the Brethren.



In college, Ted studied subjects that would help

him understand and serve the needs of other

people.



Many persons Ted's age were in the Army, the

Air Force, the Navy, or the Marines. But Ted was

not interested in being a soldier. As a Christian, he

wanted to follow Jesus' example and teachings-to

love all people, even enemies, and to return good for

evil.



Ted volunteered to serve his country for two

years in a way that would help other people rather

than hurt or kill them. He knew he was in danger.

But doing what he felt was right was more

important to Ted than his personal safety.



This book will appeal to the child listening to the

story, as well as to the adult reading it. The story of

Ted Studebaker provides a positive role model for

living peacefully with others.



The author says, "It has been my experience that

when a child and an adult can share a literary

experience deeply, a special bond develops as they

discuss what they have read.



"I perceive this book as one that touches all

persons, from the two-year-old who becomes

excited about the tractor to the adult who marvels

at Ted's faithfulness.



"Different portions of the book appeal to different developmental levels, allowing the book's significance ' to 'mature' with the child."
