Product Description:

Written and illustrated by Hilda van Stockum, this Newberry Honor book tells the story of 9 year old twins Evert and Afke as their teacher takes them skating on the frozen canals of Holland. While this book is a little more text-heavy than your typical story book, it is filled with lots of illustrations to appeal to visual learners as well. 44 pgs, hc. Laura

Publisher Description:

2007 Commemorative edition. With this 1935 Newbery Honor book, author/illustrator Hilda van Stockum made her debut into the world of children's books. Within its pages she adroitly captures Dutch life as it was in the early part of this century.

Twins Afke and Evert have a particularly understanding teacher who decides to take his class on a winder skating trip in a nearby town. Evert and his buddies, shy Simon and loyal Afke all have their share of adventures. Everyone (Teacher most of all) breathes a happy sigh of relief upon arriving home safely after a very full day.

Seven full-cover paintings and numerous line drawings enliven this Commemorative edition.

Love this story!
A delightful read-aloud for winter weather! It is so enjoyable to travel with the children as they have a day on skates in a time and place gone by ??
