Okay, picture this one. You show up at school one morning and everything is business as usual—at least until you go to class and find a family sleeping in the back of the room. Pretty weird, huh? Not during the Depression.
The family has two children, a grandmother, a dad, and a mother who has a baby coming. Uh oh—you can imagine how that makes Billie Jo feel.
The father says he's been looking all over for work, but it's cold and they can't live in the car with the baby so close to arriving.
The real hero here is Miss Freeland, who doesn't bat an eye and says they are welcome to stay.
