Publisher's Summary

School in the Kentucky hills goes from August to the last Friday before Christmas. After that the snows are too high, and later, the thawing rivers too full, for the Fairchild children, and their neighbors, the Wattersons, the Sawyers, and the Huffs to make it safely to the little school house in the woods. 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. The fourth and final book in the Fairchild Family series.

Beautiful old fashioned story

What other book might you compare Schoolroom in the Parlor to, and why?

Little House on the Prairie series

Any additional comments?

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.
