39. Village School by Miss Read

Miss Read is the schoolmistress at a small school in the village of Fairacre.  In this book, you meet Miss Read and the teachers she works with and all the children in the school.   Although a time is not given, I think it takes place shortly after WWII.  The school does not have running water and toilet facilities.  They burn coke for warmth and the children all walk to school.  There is not a lot of wealth in the village.  It's small and everyone knows everyone's business.  It's a feel-good story, the first of a series, but not one I feel the need to continue with.  Rating:  3
