Lynne Barasch is the acclaimed authorllustrator of picture books, including the ALA Notable Children's Book Radio Rescue. She takes readers back to the small 1940s country schoolhouse where Grandpa went to school. The children in his tiny three-room school participated in all sorts of fun activities-spelling bees, geography bees, history bees, even multiplication bees. And at recess they had snowball fights or played baseball or ring-a-levio. But everything changed when a new girl named Kaye came to school.
