When Grandfather Was a Boy

by Carolyn Sherwin Bailey

Description:  The sight of an old chimney prompts Grandfather to begin telling John stories of olden times when he was a boy. He relates encounters with wild animals, including squirrels, geese, and chipmunks, and tells of many humorous incidents in family life, both on holidays and in everyday life on the farm. Through his engaging stories, Grandfather brings the pioneer era to life for John, as well as for children of today.
