Now that Althy is 14, Mr. Fairchild has other plans for the long winter months. Learn, along with Bonnie, Debbie, Chris, and Emmy, what it is like to have school at home in the early 1900s.

This was a lovely peaceful story, which helped to calm my children down at the end of a busy day caravanning around western Australia. It was a great picture into life in the olden days. Its interesting enough for adults to listen to also, and the narration was sweet, once I got my head around the southern? american accent.
