About the Author
Kirkpatrick Hill lives in Fairbanks, Alaska. She was an elementary school teacher for more than thirty years, most of that time in the Alaskan "bush." Hill is the mother of six children and the grandmother of eight. Her three earlier books, Toughboy and Sister, Winter Camp, and The Year of Miss Agnes, have all been immensely popular. Her fourth book with McElderry Books, Dancing at the Odinochka, was a Junior Library Guild Selection. Hill's visits to a family member in jail inspired her to write Do Not Pass Go.

It's a good story. Lots of non-standard English grammar, which does start to be corrected toward the end. Still, if your child has a problem already with "me and her" or "we gots", you may want to be aware that the characters in this book speak that way.
As a result of this book, I found a 12-foot stretch of wall in my house and hung an adding-machine-tape timeline on it. I'm letting the kids do illustrations for the time periods of the books they read, and hanging them on the timeline.
Each of the students discover individual talents under Miss Agnes' leadership. You can see the children growing as individual people in every chapter. By the end of the book, you have fallen in love with Miss Agnes, Fred (Frederika), Bertha, Martha, Jimmy Joe, Bokko, and the others on Kanakuk Mountain.
Loved the style writing - told from the viewpoint of student Fred (Frederika).
