This free book has 173 pages of wonderful, old-fashioned children's adventures in the country, plus gorgeous pen and ink and colorized illustrations. I think I'll make a recording of the fishing episode for my sons, (as soon as I can figure out how.)
Homeschoolers, classroom kids and students, and fans of vintage old-fashioned country life will love this book. Since it is written by a Vermont schoolteacher, and I was born in Vermont, it's another reason for me to be partial to it.
Here's how Jim Erskine describes it:
"PETER AND POLLY IN AUTUMN by Rose Lucia (PDF ebook)...is a lovely little storybook from 1919 following the adventures of Peter and Polly, their family and their pets on their farm from the first warm, golden days of the season to the first snowflakes of Fall. Beautiful golden tinted illustrations throughout in this delightful, old-fashioned school story book."
