There was only one thing Uncle Josh missed when he moved to the Kentucky hills from a lifetime of teaching in Kansas. He really missed the children. But soon the Kentucky children discovered what a story spinner Uncle Josh was and they invented all sorts of excuses to visit him. He always had a story ready. Sometimes a child had to learn a lesson about fighting or teasing or feeling lonely and the lesson would be neatly tucked into a tale; sometimes an animal would be the star of the story. It didn't matter what the story was about, the children kept coming back for more. It's good that Helen Noordewier wrote down some of the stories Uncle Josh told. Now they can be shared with many more children. The stories are easy to listen to and easy to read. And it's hard to put the book down after reading only one story. These are great read-aloud stories for youngsters 4-6, and even greater I-can- read-myself stories for second and third graders. Helen Noordewier spent thirty-three years teaching in the elementary grades. Now retired, she lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She has also written 'The Boola Pan' and 'Missy Doe'.
