This is the 3rd in a series of 5 books about 5 sisters and their baby brother in New York City at the turn of the century (1900). This is a wonderful series! I just have some extra copies of these books.
I think this book would be best for a frugal scrapbooker who doesn't have a lot of gadgets. There are plenty of stencils in the book so you can trace letters and shapes. I just used my gadgets so I had no use for these stencils. The book itself is informative and well written. It give you tips on such basics as how to sort and store photos, using design principals, journalling, and organizing time. It also has tips and photos about how to use different techniques such as using stickers, using vellum, cutting, rubber stamping, chalking, using computers, and framing.
I read this book for the first time as an adult and I really enjoyed it. It's about a girl named Jerusha who grew up in a children's home and finished high-school while at the home. She has a talent for writing so one of the trustees of the home offers to pay for college for her on the condition that he remain anonymous and that she writes to him faithfully every month about what's going on at school. She starts writing to him and addresses the letters to "Daddy Long Legs"
This is one of the popular Ruth Chew books on magic and witches for younger children. She wrote and illustrated the texts with beautiful charcoal drawings. Most of her stories are set in New York City.
This is the 7th book in this wonderful 16 book series about Eddie Wilson, a boy who gets into dilemnas and end up getting out of them in unusual and unexpected ways. Carolyn Haywood wrote and illustrated this story with her always cute pen and ink drawings. This book was written in 1959 but is still a pleasure to read. It is written for younger children.
Our little boy adored this book when he was little! This is a picture book where the father of a little boy tells him the story of how each animal on the farm goes to sleep. At the end, the little boy falls asleep. Wonderful watercolor paintings of the father, the son, and the farm animals!
This book is a lot of fun to play. It lists that it's for ages 8 to adult. My child is 11, loves puzzles and just adores this book! We ended up with a second copy!
