Our family enjoyed sharing the stories Gary's book, we each took turns reading the different chapters aloud to one another, in the dim of the summer night.

When Kids Were Allowed To Be Kids. Railroad Street Press. Gary is an inspiration to me to record my own memories of childhood and youth. The simple tales that he tells are hilarious, poignant, and can easily be visualized and related to. The only problem with the book is that it is such easy reading. I'll hate to come to the end.

Another reason I think homeschoolers should be allowed to participate in public schools is because the parents of homeschooled children are still taxpayers. This means that they have the right to benefit from the services of public schools. The high schools that don't allow them to play on their sports teams do allow the students to participate in their band, chorus, and theatre programs. If they allow them to be in those programs, then it should not be any different when it comes to sports. The last reason I think homeschoolers should be able to participate in sports at public schools is because bringing those students in won't affect the team.

My mother is a banker. She works with computers and numbers. Sorry you can't hear this story. I am a studant now, but I think i will be a didgital painter. I thing animal lovers like this story.

All of the following stories were written about actual events that happened in my life while growing up in the small Vermont town of Peacham. I realize time has a way of changing some of the minor details but the overall picture will remain unchanged. I have written all of these stories as I remember them happening or in some instances as they were told to me. There is no order in which these stories appear; I write them as they return to my memory. So with that being said, please keep in mind, one store may be about a time when I was very young and the next about my teenage years. Also, in some of the stories, the names have been changed to protect the guilty. Please take a few minutes to make yourself comfortable and let the following pages take you back in time. Back to a time different than the one we have now, a time before electronic games took over kid's lives. A time when kids were not only allowed to make up games they wanted to play but also the rules. It was also a time when kids had to make the things they wanted to play with......I truly hope you enjoy reading about life during the late fifties and all through the sixties as much as I enjoyed living them.

If you ever wanted a trigger to reliving you own childhood, this is it! After reading only the first couple stories I found myself pausing to reflect on my own experiences as a youth, and then took the time to write some of them down. Gary is an inspiration to me to record my own memories of childhood and youth. The simple tales that he tells are hilarious, poignant, and can easily be visualized and related to. The only problem with the book is that it is such easy reading. I'll hate to come to the end . . . Some day, the youth of our present age will turn to books like this to see what times were like 'back in the day.'

This book of short stories will have you laughing out loud. The stories take place in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom and are drawn from real life experience. Together, they describe a 1950s childhood time that largely has disappeared even from small towns. Filled with local color, the stories revolve around family and community life and activities and are gut-bustingly funny. You will read them again and again for the sheer pleasure of it. You will read them out loud to adults and children alike.

Move over Bill Bryson, there's a new man in town - a small town in Northeastern Vermont, that is.

Like Bryson, Gary Schoolcraft has captured the magic of childhood in a small village. He has mined the depths of his memories of growing up in the village, to bring its people, its traditions, and its quirks to life. Each of his stories recalls a time when children felt safe, and were, and parents were too busy to worry about them from sun-up to sunset. He describes a time when rich imaginations and creative ingenuity created hours of entertainment without the need for Game-Boys, Wiis, iPads, or television. And most importantly he does it with humor and compassion.
This is a must-read for anyone over fifty who wants to recall a simpler, less frenetic time, when summers seemed to last forever...and life in the country, while hard, was incredibly rewarding.

This nostalgic and very funny memoir tells a story of growing up in rural vermont in the 50's. Like the title suggests, it takes you back to a time when kids were unencumbered by the structured play imposed on many children today. It was a time when kids were left to their own devices to explore, play and have fun in their rural farming community- often with unexpected but hilarious results. The stories often begin with the author, his brothers and/or other boys of the village starting on some innocent adventure that usually ends them in some kind of predicament, injury or, or trouble with mom. Through it all, we get a picture of a great place and time to grow up. The writing style is straight forward, the language colloquial, and I found it is an exceptionally enjoyable read. I recommend this book to anyone who would like to relive a simpler, but wholesome era.

Gary's purpose to reach into the past to convey his delight with his family helps the reader share their own stories with their family. The titles alone are worth the read.

You'll recognize these characters from your own relatives and from your own home towns. Garry writes without pretense and for his own pleasure. Fortunately the pleasure is ours as well.

Gary is a born storyteller. Give yourself an hour or two before you crack the cover on his book. Once you start, you won't want to stop. I'd have been happy to be his friend back in the day in Peacham. I think we ran with the same crowd. "Fridays with Mom" and Creeping on All Fours" are two of my favorites. I read them to my wife at lunch, and I kept having to stop and get control of myself! Hilarious, roll-on-the-floor funny!
