Jeremiah knows how to build a split-rail fence, cook buttermilk pancakes, and make sweet syrup from tree sap. But there's one thing elderly Jeremiah doesn't know how to do, and that's read. What an inspiring example he is to the children of this tree-shaded town, when he shows up in the schoolhouse to learn alongside them! Often giving more to the class than he is taught, the old man is soon reading and writing alongside his fellow classmates. By the end of the story, Jeremiah has befriended his neighbors, visited the town library, and found someone new to share the joys of reading with ... his wife.
For ages 5 to 9.
