From Our Editors
With age comes wisdom and skill, as Jeremiah shows the children at school through his chickadee chirp and whittling skills. 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.
"Bogart has written a heartwarming story about sharing and learning from one another and about the joy and wonder of reading. The text is simple, soft and soothing. It's a sure-fire winner! Highly recommended." (CM Magazine)
