I am reading a book called the little village school. It is the story of a lady who gets a job as a head teacher of a village school. This new head teacher turns the school around from being a bit of a dump where the children and staff were not at all happy, to being a well organised school where everyone one was happy. She meets several interesting characters throughout the story, each with their own problems and ambitions. The story is both sad and funny at the same time.

Wouldn't it be a good idea to mention the author and the title of the book in the post?

I like a story that has several emotions and leads you through several. Like a movie that is sad, happy, silly, funny, etc.

This book was a lot like that, one minute I was laughing, the next I felt sad.

Good for her turning the school around when she becomes the head teacher. I bet there are a lot of interesting characters with problems and ambitions.

I love books like that. I recommend "Village School" by "Miss Read" (pen name)

It seems to be an interesting story of a teacher who did her job with a lot of passion thus turning things around for this community in the village.
