Margaret K. This book makes me smile! I love the simple dedication Miss Agnes has to teaching and the pride Fred and the other students take in their learning is fantastic. Between being set in 1948 and in the Alaskan wild, there is a lot for students to take in that is quite different than the world they know. Austin VelishekGo to Austin Velishek's profile.

A year they'll never forget. Ten-year-old Frederika (Fred for short) doesn't have much faith that the new teacher in town will last very long. After all, they never do. Most teachers who come to their one-room schoolhouse in remote, Alaska leave at the first smell of fish, claiming that life there is just too hard

But Miss Agnes is different - she doesn't get frustrated with her students, and she throws away old textbooks and reads Robin Hood instead! For the first time, Fred and her classmates begin to enjoy their lessons and learn to read and write - but will Miss Agnes be like all the rest and leave.

Kirkpatrick Hill lives in Fairbanks, Alaska. Her three earlier books, Toughboy and Sister, Winter Camp, and The Year of Miss Agnes, have all been immensely popular. Her fourth book with McElderry Books, Dancing at the Odinochka, was a Junior Library Guild Selection. Hill's visits to a family member in jail inspired her to write Do Not Pass Go.

In the previous book, The Year of Miss Agnes, it’s 1948 and a new teacher comes to teach in the tiny Athabascan village on the Koyukuk River in Alaska. Ten-year-old Fred tells why Miss Agnes is the best teacher they’ve ever had in their one-room school, and different in every way. ln the sequel, Miss Agnes and the Ginger Tom, their wonderful teacher is back. And she’s brought a cat, the first they’ve ever seen. But how long will she stay? Miss Agnes has arranged for her extraordinarily gifted student, Jimmy Sam, to go away to a college prep school “outside.” If he can pass the test. Miss Agnes starts Jimmy on a rigorous program of study for the test and Fred and the others learn right along with him. The whole village is part of Miss Agnes’ school. She’s brought boxes of books and soon everyone in town is reading something from the school bookshelves. And she’s brought a movie projector so the village people can see movies for the first time. The village’s anxiety increases as the school year goes on, waiting for Jimmy’s test. Grandma says it’s hutlaanee, bad luck, to talk about the test, but they can’t help it. If Jimmy doesn’t pass it he will have to leave school next year to do a man’s work with his father and brother, all his dreams of being a scientist come to nothing.

The Year of Miss Agnes is one of my all time favorite books to read to my third graders, and I was so excited to get this sequel. I absolutely loved this book, it is awesome!

It does refer to happenings from the first book, and even repeat some things but it is still a great read. Some other reviews speak of misspellings/bad grammar/English but I think that is done just to enhance your reading experience so you know what the characters really sound like - somewhat like when an accent is written in.

Bottom line: if you loved the first book, you will greatly enjoy this one too! #allthehearteyes

This book reminds me of the Little House Series...I first read The Year of Miss Agnes and could not wait to read this one. I hope we will be hearing more from our school room in Alaska as told by Fred (Frederika)...wonderful...great for kids and adults alike.

Great book! A wonderful sequel to "The Year of Miss Agnes". Captivating. Original. Educational. Fun. My 7 year old, who also loves the first book, didn't want me to stop reading to him!

This is such a great story about being able to accomplish anything you set your mind to. I love how all the characters look out for one another.

I am a teacher and taught the first book, The Year of Miss. Agnes to my 3rd graders. When I saw this sequel, I immediately bought it to use as a read aloud. However, it is very hard to read to a group of captive students when there are frequent editing errors and typos. My teammate also has a copy and stopped reading it to her class due to the errors. It is really frustrating that the wonderful piece of literature didn't have time put into it so it could be read and loved my many children. I would love to have a copy that has had the errors fixed so I can read it to my class.

The previous book, The Year of Miss Agnes, is one of the best books about Alask and teaching....ever. This one was not as compelling, but was still charming.
I really like this book but you shouldn't read it until you have read the first book or it won't make much sense
