This was my daughter's (age 7) first "chapter book," and she was so excited to finish reading it. It was really the prefect book to get her, since previosuly she really just was not a fan of reading, even though she could read fairly well.

Both of my girls (ages 5-8) loved this book. Nice story for an easy reader.

The historical story is a great intro to past time periods, and my daughter has read this book over and over.

I used this book to develop a lesson plan for all core subjects for a class I'm in at UNCG, school of education. I thought the book provided the excited feelings reading can create when it is intrinsically encouraged. Great book!

I felt that this book gave a negative light on parents. The mother was too busy to discuss Clara's intrigue about how bread rose, and then the father also dismissed her desire to learn and to read. He said that farm people dont have time to read. He also stated that dreaming was a bad thing for farmers. Clara also stated how she got tired of farm work. When Clara comes into contact with a librarian of a book wagon, the lady tells Clara to hop in the cart and they would essentially go tell her father he was wrong and Clara should borrow a book, and learn to read.

This is exactly opposite of the life we are trying to create on our farm and can lead to bitter feelings toward work and parents. Reading is a priority here and probably among most farmers, but I feel that the way this situation was handled in this young girls life was wrong. Although my 6 year old read this and we discussed the attitudes exampled here, I will not be saving it for the little ones.

I was looking for something a little more challenging, by the time I unloaded the groceries from the car, my daughter in 2nd grade had finished the book. I was hoping for a 64 pg book that read kind of like a American Girl book, where it is actually a beginner chapter book but this had about 1-3 sentences per page.

“Clara and the Bookwagon” is a reader that I recently discovered at my local library. It’s an older book, but one which I enjoyed so much I wanted to recommend it.

Clara is a farm girl living in Maryland around 1900. She does not go to school because there are no schools for farm children. Instead, she spends her days working hard on the farm. She has a vivid imagination and loves stories and has a secret wish to learn how to read.
When she visits the general store in town with her father, she wants to borrow a book from the free book station located there, but her father refuses, telling her, “Farm people like us do not have time to read.”

Some time later, Miss Mary comes to visit her farm with her traveling book wagon. She tries to lend Clara a book, but the young girl remembers what her father said and turns it down. The librarian offers to go talk to her father for her and even offers to teach Clara to read.

This wonderful tale is based on the true story of Mary Lemist Titcomb, the head of the Hagerstown, Maryland public library, who started book stations in general stores, churches, and homes. In 1905, she began the first horse-drawn bookmobile.

This easy reader chapter book promotes books and reading with an appealing story set in 1905 Maryland. Inquisitive Clara desperately wants to learn to read, but there are no schools nearby, and her father says she's too busy with farmwork to waste her time on books.
Levinson makes historical fiction very appealing to younger readers, with a fine eye to the details of rural life, without getting bogged down in old-fashioned terms. While the story is simple, the characters and plot are realistic. In the process, the reader is introduced to the very first "bookmobile," a horse-drawn wagon, based on historical fact.
In our library, this title doesn't get checked out until it is read-aloud or otherwise introduced to the children. After that it gets a lot of use. Recommended.
