Ida B…and her Plans to Maximize Fun, Avoid Disaster and (Possibly) Save the Worl

I’m Ida B., not Ida that’s my Mama, but Ida B. Life is pretty good here on the farm with Mama, Daddy, Rufus our dog and Lula our cat. I’m home schooled, I tried kindergarten for 3 weeks at the Ernest B. Lawson Elementary School, but it wasn’t for me. After doing my school work there is lots to do here. I talk with the trees in the apple orchard – yes, talk. All the trees have names and if you listen closely they answer. I also talk with the brook that runs through our farm. Daddy always says that we don’t own the earth; we are the earth’s caretakers and that we should leave our land better than we found it.
And then Mama found a lump and the lump had cancer, and Daddy sold some of our land, and they cut down my friends the trees and now I have to go to 4th grade at the stupid Ernest B. Lawson Elementary School. What am I going to do?
