But entertainment is not why the elderly Jeremiah’s at the school – he wants to learn how to read! In this popular Ruth Schawtz Children’s Book Award title by Jo Ellen Bogart, children learn along with Jeremiah and his classmates the joy of discovery and accomplishment, whether it’s learning to sound out ‘cat’ or making a split-rail fence! This paperback edition features the illustrations of Laura Fernandez and Rick Jacobson.
