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.
