School Days narrates the life of young Jacob, an enthusiastic four-year old, who couldn't wait to turn six and attend school with his older brother and sisters. The story illustrates Jacob's school days both in the country and in the city.
The country school house was a little three room building, modestly furnished with the bare essentials. There was no electricity, no running water, and children walked miles just to get to school. When Jacob's family moved to the city, Jacob was excited to discover that his new home and the big city school were loaded with much more than he could imagine!
