Reviews

"Endearing." --School Library Journal

"* Cheerful and uncomplicated." --The Horn Book, starred review

"A warm tale set in an Alaskan gold-mining town in 1929-30 . . . Bo is an endearing Pollyanna in a parka." --Kirkus Reviews

"Fans of the classic Little House books, will soak in the atmosphereic look at a particular time and place. A great choice for classroom unites on the gold rush." --Booklist

"Hill has created more than just an appealing cast of characters; she introduces readers to a whole community and makes a long-ago and faraway place seem real and very much alive. This is an inspirational story about Alaska, the old and new ways, a very special teacher, and the influence that she has over everyone she meets. A wonderful read-aloud to start off the school year." --School Library Journal on The Year of Miss Agnes

"An uplifting portrait of a dedicated teacher." --Booklist on The Year of Miss Agnes

"A quiet, yet satisfying account." --Kirkus Reviews on The Year of Miss Agnes
