This is a great autobiography of Lucy Maud Montgomery, written in the midst of her writing career. In it, she tells of her inspiration for some of the events in her books - events in her own life. It includes excerpts of her poems, and from her journals.
This is a great cookbook for kids to learn from. It has something for every meal, and every time of the year, from chicken noodle soup to strawberry jam. The recipes have detailed instructions with illustrations, and taste good too!
This is a great easy-reader book about a puppy named Biscuit. My little brother was so proud that he was able to read it all by himself! There are five or six books in this series about Biscuit, all as easy to read as this one, and with wonderful illustrations.
A favorite of mine as a little girl, this is the story of Queen Josephine, who gets a visit one day from the Queen Bee. She is the head of all the queens. She asks Josephine where her jewels are, and since Josephine doesn't have any, she lends her 100. If she can't figure out how to use them in 24 hours, Josephine will no longer be a queen. So the rest of the story is Josephine trying to figure out what jewels are for. Will Josephine figure it out in time? A funny story!
This is kind of a sequel/prequel to the book "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers" by Maria Von Trapp, but it is more about her than the others. It starts with telling about her father, and then how she ended up at the abbey after college. Then it fills in a little bit of what was told in "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers," and continues with what happened after it. By the end of the book, all of the Trapp Family is grown. Like the absolutely wonderful "Story of the Trapp Family Singers," this is a very enjoyable read, and fantastic book.
This has always been my favorite Dr. Suess book. It's all about thinking - thinking about red, about night, about a race on a ball with a fish, thinking about how much water fifty-five elephants drink, or schlopp with a cherry on top, and more! Written in the usual Dr. Suess style, rhyming, funny, and easy to read.
This is the story of Polly Milton, an old fashioned girl. It begins when she is 14 years old, with a stay with her town, up-to-date friend Fanny Shaw and her family, by whom she is looked down upon as a backwards country girl. But things change as they get older, and Fanny begins to see how much better Polly's old-fashioned ways really are.
