Prairie School is about a nine year old boy named Noah. He and his family have just moved from Maine to Colorado. He loves being there on the open prairie. He feels free. One day his mother tells his they are going to have a visitor. It's his Aunt Dora and she is coming to teach him to read. Naoh doesn't like the idea at all. Once Aunt Dora shows Noah her way of teaching he catches on and enjoys learning new things.
The book is part of the I Can Read series. It's a level 4, for grade 2-4. This is a good introduction to historical fiction.
I would recommed this book. It would make a great read aloud while learning about the 1880's.
