A Country School House | [Lynne Barasch]

A Country School House

Acclaimed author Lynne Barasch takes listeners back to the small 1940s country schoolhouse where Grandpa went to school. The children in his tiny three-room school participated in all sorts of fun activities: spelling bees, geography bees, history bees, even multiplication bees. And at recess, they had snowball fights or played baseball or ring-a-levio. But everything changed when a new girl named Kaye came to school.

What the Critics Say

"A child-friendly history lesson made relevant with details like built-in inkwells, lunch boxes, flypaper strips, and peeing in the snow, proving that kids in a small country school learned better than those in a big city school." (Kirkus Reviews)

    Story
    "Wonderful story of a bygone era!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Country School House to be better than the print version?

    The print version is hard to beat because it has such sweet drawings, but I was glad to learn there was an audio version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Country School House?


    Any additional comments?

    A child's grandfather explains what it was like to attend a one-room schoolhouse in 1940 in rural America. Many kids worked at their family farms before starting their school day. Indoor plumbing doesn't come to the school until the narrator is in 3rd grade. The setting sounds idyllic and innocent. My thoroughly modern touchscreen-loving kids adore the story even though it seems light years away.
