Schoolhouse in the Woods
Schoolhouse in the Woods. (The 2nd book in The Fairchild Family Series). The Fairchild family is here again and this time, Bonnie is old enough to begin the great adventure-School! We join her in excruciating anticipation of the first day, when Bonnie will wear her new dress, carry a first reader and slate, and - displaying nonchalance as she braves the swinging bridge - enter into the mysteries of schoolroom learning and playground rites in a woodland setting of the early 1900s. Bonnie's older brother and three sisters, her various classmates and Miss Cora, her teacher, add their liveliness to an eventful season of learning - on every front - in the Kentucky Hills. Rebecca Caudill's unfailing insights into a child's heart are enhanced by Decie Merwin's skillful drawings. Recommended for 4th grade. Dimensions: 5.5 x 8.5 inches. Soft cover. 129 pp.
This book is part of a treasury of wholesome, character-building literature from Bethlehem Books.
