A Weekend At School is a book that will be enjoyed by the young and old alike and will make an interesting edition to any school or public library. The story takes place in January 1950 when a group of school children and their teacher become stranded in a remote country school. As the kids settle into their morning studies, a light snowfall moves over the area. Before first recess, the snowfall has turned into a snowstorm, and later that afternoon the little schoolhouse is being pounded by the worst blizzard in years. As the blizzard intensifies, the electricity goes off, leaving them to rely on kerosene lamps to get through the night. Saturday morning, they awake to an empty wood box, no food, and their teacher feverishly ill with the flu. Serious as their predicament is, they manage to survive Saturday and Saturday night. However, Sunday morning they have to make a live or death decision. The book is filled with the work ethics and ingenuity of children raised in rural communities during the nineteen-forties. The reader will be in suspense as Amos and his cousin Jesse escape one dangerous predicament after another in an effort to save their friends.
