Personal Reaction: I thought this book was interesting. It was not my personal favorite, but I did enjoy the illustrations and format of the book. I particularly liked how it integrated the school newspaper on many of its pages with stories from the students in the school. Also, I love the Spanish language and I really enjoyed how they used Spanish words throughout the story to integrate the culture through the writing.

Purpose: Read aloud for students grades 3-5
-enjoying and eventful throughout

Set in 1938 when Roosevelt was president, this is a realistic fiction story of a small one-room school in Arizona. The students have a new teacher, Miss Byers, and they like her new ideas. One of them is to write a school paper. Throughout the story, are mimeographed copies of the paper, in that familiar purple ink!
