KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of Happy Little Family, Saturday Cousins, and Up and Down the River, once more recalls her own childhood as she writes again of the five Fairchild children and a winter they spent forty years ago in the heart of the Kentucky mountains. When the cold season starts, fourteen-year-old Althy is charged with teaching her younger sisters and brothers in the cozy parlor which has heretofore been reserved for special occasions. The lessons she teaches, the unique way in which each child responds, make up the fabric of this lively recollection of the rural American family as it used to be. Episodic in form, this new ""Bonnie"" book exerts that same charm which Rebecca Caudhill's previous works have manifested, in that they so strongly convey the sense of a family, a home, and a just about perfect community of wholesome interest and affection.
