    This is a series about Jack as he returns for his fourth year at Ragley on the Forest School Going back to the school, Jack finds village schools are being closed down all over the place This is an interesting series with a behind the scenes look at a small school and those in it.

    I liked this the least in the series so far, which isn t a negative as this type of series can t help but seem a little repetitive Gentle anecdotes of village life creates an overall charming series for easy summer reading I intend to read .

    My favourite book so far Again many aspects are funny or humorous or come to life because we are looking back Comments about Charles and Di being in love and being happy are interesting because we know exactly what did happen The men s shopping trip to Leeds is hilarious as they all queue up for Jilly Cooper s autograph books and one of them insists his wife will appreciate the tool he bought her The books retains an air of nostalgia and as a teacher it would be lovely to go back to those days before a common curriculum where children learned the social skills they needed although I suppose we are heading back in that direction again but with added pressure from OFSTED and targets these days, it harks back to a time we will probably never get back I also enjoyed reading about children playing in the fields a time before games consoles and computers when children went in the fresh air and parents weren t afraid to let them It actually made me a little sad too.And then there is the unanswered question at the end that makes me want to go out and buy the next book

    The sequel to Dear Teacher , this feel good, escapist story follows the life of Jack Sheffield, the headteacher of a small village school in Yorkshire that is threatened with closure It is now 1980, and the decade of electronic typewriters, pixie boots and shoulder pads has hit the small village There are mishaps, new arrivals and a pantomime in this book, which again makes me think what a nice job the character Jack Sheffield has However, the book finished on a cliffhanger a will he won t he question..The character Beth, Jack s fiancee, is beginning to annoy me a bit if I have to be brutally honest and I find the countless references to her honey blonde hair tucked behind her ear a bit tiresome every time she appears in a scene It s a nice book to read if you want to escape the humdrum of normal life, and I have now downloaded the next in the series It s cruel finishing a book off on a cliffhanger If you like books by Miss Read, Rebecca Shaw, Maeve Binchy, Eve Houston or Debbie Macomber, you will enjoy this.

    By the time I d finished reading the fourth book in the series I was exhausted and had enough Well written humorous books but I ve now tired of them and the repetition required.

    Set in 1980 Village Teacher is a year in the life of primary school set in the Yorkshire dales An enjoyable light read in the style of the late Miss Read.
