Noah and his family have moved from their home in Maine to a new home.  They are now living on the Colorado prairie.  Noah loves his life and loves wandering around exploring their new home.  One day his mother tells him they are going to have a visit from Aunt Dora.  Noah is excited until he hears the reason for her visit!  She is coming to be Noah's teacher!  Noah doesn't see the need to learn reading and writing on the prairie.  When Aunt Dora tries to get him to learn his letters, he finds other things to do.  Will Noah ever let Aunt Dora teach him to read and write?  What use will learning be for a prairie boy?  Spend time with Noah and Aunt Dora in the PRAIRIE SCHOOL.
