Read full description of the books Prairie School:Award winning author AVI lives in Denver (a fact I didn't realize until reading this little book). In Prairie School, AVI tells a story that takes place as the Colorado Prairie is being settled around 1880. Noah Bidson, a 9 year old, enjoys helping his parents with daily chores around their new home. One day, Noah's mother announces that her sister, Aunt Dora, will be coming to school Noah.
Mother and son are both surprised to discover Aunt Dora uses a wheelchair. "Soon after you went West, a buggy I was driving turned over. I lost the use of my legs."
Over the course of several months, Aunt Dora shows Noah not only what she is still able to do, but also the many things they both can learn about the prairie through books.
"All day Noah wheeled her around. All day Aunt Dora asked questions about what she saw. Noah told her what he knew. Each time, Dora looked into her book and told him more."
As nighttime came they would learn about stars. Toward the end of Aunt Dora's stay, Noah said,
"I found a new constellation."
"What is it?"
"It's called The Wheelchair. And you're sitting in it. See, it's those stars there."
The illustrations are beautifully simple and realistic - a perfect match to the story of Prairie School.
