Happy Little Family, Fairchild Family Series - $4.95



It is a good thing that mothers understand what no one else seems to when you are the youngest child in the family, and are finally four years old. Bonnie is more than ready to join her older sisters and brother in the many adventures she sees come their way, whether it be sliding along the ice, searching for arrowheads, or going on that journey of all journeys-across the swinging bridge to school. Winter or summer, something is always happening in the Fairchild house, tucked amidst the pine trees of the Kentucky hills 100 years ago or more. And, four years old or not, Bonnie usually manages to be in the middle of the action!

Schoolhouse in the Woods, Fairchild Family Series - $4.95



The Fairchild family is here again, and this time, Bonnie is old enough to begin the great adventure – school! We join Bonnie in the excruciating anticipation of the first day, when she will wear her new dress, carry a first reader and slate, and displaying nonchalance as she braves the swinging bridge – enter into the mysteries of schoolroom learning and playground rites in a woodland setting of the early 1900s. Bonnie’s older brother and three sisters, her various classmates, and Miss Cora, her teacher, add their liveliness to an eventful season of learning on every front in the Kentucky Hills.

Up and Down the River, Fairchild Family Series - $4.95



Bonnie’s and Debbie’s desire to get rich causes them to respond to a sure-thing magazine advertisement. They are soon embarked upon an ambitious summer of selling up and down the river. Not that circumstances end quite in the way they had imagined! In a surprising flurry of trading, the girls somehow accumulate wealth in the form of unexpected friends, assorted animals, and unforeseen situations, even as their collection of dimes and dollars seem always to be slipping through their hands. Bonnie and Debbie Fairchild occupy center stage in this story of a summer season in the lovely hills of Kentucky of the early 1900s.

Schoolroom in the Parlor, Fairchild Family Series - $4.95



School in the Kentucky hills goes from August to the last Friday before Christmas. After that the snows are too high, and later, the thawing rivers too full, for the Fairchild children, and their neighbors, the Wattersons, the Sawyers, and the Huffs to make it safely to the little school house in the woods. Now that Althy is 14, Mr. Fairchild has other plans for the long winter months. Learn, along with Bonnie, Debbie, Chris, and Emmy, what it is like to have school at home in the early 1900s. The fourth and final book in the Fairchild Family series.
