School by James Rumsford carries the reader to the African
country of Chad where summer rains have melted the mud walls
and mud desks that they had built the year before. Now,
students and teachers gather in the fall to rebuild the
school before learning can begin. Written by a Peace Corp
volunteer, this book offers a sharp contrast to the fancy,
air conditioned schools of America where our floors shine
brightly, places we take for granted. Rain
School takes readers to a whole new world.
