Weare, NH

Cora Jo Ciampi [July 2006]

Children's Librarian

The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig. Doig uses a variety of characters both in the past and present to present a delightful story about the One-Room schools in Montana. His description of having been educated in a one-Room school along with the farming life on the prairies is rich and delightful. The answer to the huge question throughout the book...to keep or not to keep the schools...is met in the dreaming way the main character has with answering all of life's questions. A great read!
