15. Mai 2001 Chronicles of Fairacre
The first novel in the beloved Fairacre series, VILLAGE SCHOOL introduces the remarkable schoolmistress Miss Read and her lovable group of children, who, with a mixture of skinned knees and smiles, are just as likely to lose themselves as their mittens. This is the English village of Fairacre: a handful of thatch-roofed cottages, a church, the school, the promise of fair weather, friendly faces, and good cheer -- at least most of the time. Here everyone knows everyone else's business, and the villagers like each other anyway (even Miss Pringle, the irascible, gloomy cleaner of Fairacre School). With a wise heart and a discerning eye, Miss Read guides us through one crisp, glistening autumn in her village and introduces us to a cast of unforgettable characters and a world of drama, romance, and humor, all within a stone's throw of the school. By the time winter comes, you'll be nestled snugly into the warmth and wit of Fairacre and won't want to leave.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A delightful reading experience 10. Juni 2001
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf
Five years have passed since Miss Read became the schoolmistress of the English village, Fairacre. A new school term is to begin and Miss Read looks forward to it with wonder, some trepidation, but mostly hopes for her pupils including three new students. Miss Read knows that she must help the somewhat frightened newcomers fit into the class as smoothly as possible.
The school year brings its usual learning, fun, and skinned knees needing special tender care. Along with Miss Reed, the dedicated but somewhat old-fashioned yet quite popular "uncertificated Teacher" Miss Clare is back and the gloom and doom custodian Mrs. Pringle is ready to keep the building clean. Finally, the awe and energy of the wide-eyed children and their village relatives offer a new year of promise and hard work.
The first novel in Miss Read's cherished Fairacre series, VILLAGE SCHOOL is a reprint of the 1955 tale that introduced the lovable teacher and her villagers to the world. Though written before Sputnik, the story line surprisingly retains a freshness and high energy level at a leisurely pace even as the remoteness of the village seems impossible in today's Internet world. The enjoyable offbeat cast remains fun to observe and often humorous as life in a bygone era comes fully alive in what was contemporary then but a strong historical now. This demonstrates how good a writer Miss Read is.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Put the kettle on 25. April 2001
Von J. Hilles - Veröffentlicht auf
Bake a batch of scones and settle down to a lovely world, a small English village school as seen through the eyes of Miss Read, a teacher.
These are my run-for-cover books. When the world is too much with me, I find my copy of Village School or Village Diary, wrap up in a quilt, and fall under the spell of these gentle novels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Must read for connoisseurs of English village life! 18. September 1996
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is the first leg of a heart warming adventure.
Set in the imaginary world of Fairacre, a village in
England, Miss Read, the headmistress, regales her readers
with humorous stories about her students and the village
residents. Come fall in love with such characters
as Mrs. Pringle, a cantankerous hypochondriac, who cleans
the school house and needles Miss Read with endless
complaints. A more lovable character is Miss Claire who
teaches the "babies" and is much respected by Miss Read and
her fellow villagers.

The author, Dora Jessie Saint, is a retired school teacher
who pulls extensively from her own experiences. There are
a number of books which include further adventures in
Fairacre, including her most recent title "Tales from a
Village School". In addition to Fairacre, she has other
imaginary villages including Thrush Green and Caxley, each
village has their own set of lovable characters and unique

If you are looking for sex, violence, or "street" language,
these books are not for you. They are wholesome stories
which engage the reader with their simple presentation of
English village life. I highly recommend them for anyone
who wants to escape to a simplier more genteel time.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Miss Read is a lesson in adaptability 6. Juli 2002
Von MRS. ROBIN K. MITCHELL - Veröffentlicht auf
So often in our 21st century world, we try to live our lives in absolutes. Perhaps we live with more fatalism than did dear Miss Read, and her flock of children at Fairacre School. The story of a rural school where poverty and want lived in many families, Miss Read helped bring beauty and creativity to her pupils. What struck me about Miss Read is her adaptability in the face of sudden village emergencies; a child or a parent who suddenly became in need of attention; an elderly teacher who needed rest. Miss Read and her contemporaries in the village of Fairacre were able to serve the needs of the community at sacrifice to their own needs. Somehow, there is the unspoken view in Fairacre that everything will work out if we pull together for a little while, and everything does. That's probably why Village School and the entire Fairacre series fit readers just as a warm quilted comforter would; the book is a photograph of what life can be when we help each other. This is a book which, in the gentlest way, illustrates the big picture. Sincerely, Robin

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you love anything British, this is for you 1. Mai 2007
Von Armchair Interviews - Veröffentlicht auf
Village School was first published in 1955 by Dora Jessie Saint (Miss Read), a British school teacher turned author and is the first in the beloved Miss Read series. If you think the novel is dated, you're wrong. Village School is a return to a gentler time. Miss Read can make shining the school's pot belly stove sound interesting. She is, as far as I'm concerned, Jan Karon's predecessor.

Miss Read is the schoolmistress in the English village of Fairacre, where she's lived for five years. She is charged with the older children's education and Miss Claire teaches kindergarten and first grade--the 'babies.'

Village School is an intimate look at the inner workings of an English village and its inhabitants. School lunches come packed in pails, the children are loved and disciplined, and Mrs. Pringle, the elderly woman who cleans the school, doesn't approve of much, but she can make the old stove shine.

Village School takes place one fall and introduces the reader to humor, drama and a touch of romance. There are thatched roofs, trials and tribulations and unique characters that will touch your heart and make you long for the 'olden days.' You're introduced to jumble sales, fetes and festivals, and all things that represent British rural education.

There's young Joseph Coggs, (his father spent an evening at the Beetle and woke most of the village with his fervor), Eileen Burton (who suffers a 'knicker' calamity), Linda Moffet (a newcomer to Fairacre and immaculate in her dress), Mrs. Pringle (who has an opinion about everything), the lovely Miss Claire, Reverend Partridge, and then there's Miss Read herself.

Our world is fast-paced, confusing, stressful and frightening at times. Village School is a delightful respite from the 'now.' This series is my all-time favorite, and I highly recommend it for a visit to a time and place we all long for. Once you enter Miss Read's world, you'll want to stay.

Armchair Interviews says: Start with Village School and then take a journey with Miss Read through more village life adventures with Village Diary.
