  • Sometimes a kids book is not just a kids book I last read Prairie School by Lois Lenski almost 60 years ago It was 1954 and I was a Grade 2 kid in a one room prairie school that my father had last attended some 20 years before The book came in a box of books from the school board office which had to be read and returned within the month I never forgot the book My kids found it on E Bay for me for Christmas one year not long ago, 1951 hardcover, exactly as I remembered it, and I read it again jus [...]


  • I am a sucker for winter survival stories I liked this one because it took place in the same general area as Laura Ingalls Wilder s The Long Winter, but many years later As the characters in this book refer to previous hard winters, I was constantly reminded of the one the Ingalls family lived through This time, they had cars and plenty of food and coal for the stoves But some of the children are forced to stay at school for a few days during a blizzard, because it can still be too dangerous to [...]


  • Based on a true story, this Lenski American regional tells the story of a group of school children and their teacher who experience the worst snowstorm in South Dakota in fifty years The teacher and children were ever so brave while many of the other adults the children s parents frustrated me to no end The details of the snow storm are a bit stressful to read about but as with the other Lenski regionals, you get all the raw details very realistic.


  • On the South Dakota prairie, Delores and Darrell and the other kids who attend their schoolhouse are used to braving rough weather conditions during the winter months When a record breaking blizzard hits, however, and Delores and Darrell become stranded at the schoolhouse with their teacher Miss Martin, they may not be quite prepared for the unusual difficulties they will face before the storm ends.Prairie School is part survival story, part educational text about the lives of prairie farmers in [...]



  • Prairie School is the eighth novel, for readers 8 12 years old, in Lois Lenski s American Regional Series It is a standout Set in South Dakota, it tells of a one room school in the Great Plains during one of the worst winters in recorded history as of 1950.Blizzard after blizzard hits the area, temperatures are well below zero and most mechanical devices are shut down Students can only get to school by walking or horseback and some afternoons they can t get home again But they come to school alm [...]


  • I remembered this book from the cover.Once I read the description and some other reviews, I knew that I had read it Thinking on it, I think I owned a copy of this book When I sort of relax my mind and barely think about the cover, I have the vaguest memory of a bookstore in a mall, probably the Waldenbooks in the Acadiana Mall.I recall that this story was way exciting than Laura Ingalls Wilder s The Long Winter When the girl in this story is sick, let s just say it s fingernail gnawing high ten [...]


  • The girls and I enjoyed this as our read aloud Charming illustrations and great story line about life in South Dakota I love Lois Lenski s Regional America books for that reason that they portray the life of children in obscure places in the U.S in a realistic, easily accessible way We took a rabbit trail and re read The Big Winter, as well as studied Mt Rush and the Sioux Indians Wonderful book, and series, for children


  • We read this book together the kids and I and we all liked it It talks of a tiny little school on the Dakota border and how they dealt with the worst winter in 50 years As always, Ms Lenski s illustrations are charming and the stories are of real situations, if not real people We learned a lot about how people lived back then and the hardships they faced I have become an advocate for her books Very good material.


  • I really liked this book I picked it up a used bookshop while looking for books for my granddaughter I decided to read it before I gave it to her as it was based on a true story During a very hard winter in the late 1940s, some children and their teacher were stranded out on the prarie in a little one room school house with very few supplies Very well written by an excellent author.


  • A twentieth century counterpart to Laura Ingalls Wilder s Long Winter this Lenski regional is set in South Dakota on the North Dakota border Now that I ve lived through a northern plains winter, and I know about Germans from Russia, I appreciate the story than I did when I read it as a child.


  • This was one of my favorite books as a young girl I must have checked it out of the school library about 50 times I recently acquired a copy it s now out of print and still enjoyed it after all these years.



  • Enjoyed this account of life in the northern prairie See Children s Blizzard for non fiction account of severe winters in the prairies.


  • Loved this book When I was reading it I was truly transported the snowy prairies of South Dakota in 1950 Great books take you places



  • Happened to pick this up in the school library One of her best Based on the great Dakota Nebraska blizzards of 1948 1949 A wonderful follow on to Laura Ingalls Wildre s The Long Winter.
