Seton's Description:
A Day on Skates. In honor of her life and work, Bethlehem Books has brought back one of the most delightful family books ever written. 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 the 20th century. Twins Afke and Evert have a particularly understanding teacher who decides to take his class on a winter skating trip to 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-color paintings and numerous line drawings enliven this 2007 Commemorative Edition. With a new special feature "Hilda van Stockum: A Legacy of Light" describing her life and literary history. Hardcover. 40 pp.

Intriguing Book for Adults and Children, February 18, 2013
Reviewer: anonymous

I highly recommend this book! It is six chapters, not just a little bedtime story. The kids and I could hardly put it down we were so curious to find out what happens next!
