Clara and the Bookwagon

By Nancy Smiler Levinson, Illustrated by Carolyn Croll


Papa will not allow Clara to learn to read—he says that ‘Farm people like us do not have time to read." But when the traveling bookwagon, with persuasive Miss Mary at the reins, arrives at their farm, Papa realizes he must change his mind. Based on the true story of America’s first ‘bookmobile.’
