CLIMBING THE RAINBOW
New York : HarperCollins,
you are 10 years old and have never gone to school. Now you are sent
for the first time. You are behind the kids your own age and are
sent to the first grade. Well, that's what happens to Dora Cookson.
The year is 1911 and Dora and her family are homesteading in New Mexico.
For the first year, there was so much work to do that Dora had to stay
home to help. Now the homestead is doing better and the children
are sent to school. But Dora hates the idea of sitting with the first
graders instead of children her own age. She is determined to work
hard and find a way to sit with the fourth graders.
