I absolutely adore The Penderwicks. I‘ve discovered that reading “Jr. Fiction” books like these, make me feel like a little girl on Summer vacation. And I really love that feeling! Can anyone give me suggestions for similar books to these? Sweet, lighthearted, summery....thanks, all! 😘

This quote profoundly touched me. Truthfully, it makes me feel so....ashamed. But it also makes me want to do better. And to be better. 💕

TheNextBook I loved the way he honestly portrayed the attitude in America and the fact that it has existed since its founding. The irony that those escaping persecution would then go on to persecute, enslave and murder others cant be loss to the passage of time. When he spoke about the treaties with Native Americans or even the slaves who knew the Declaration of Independence, it was very disheartening. Treaties still aren't being honored. Racism and this... 6y
TheNextBook ...all encompasing bigotry still exists. It's time to do better. We all need to do better. 6y

Sparkpuppypup @Mariposa_Bookworm Wasn't she just the most wonderful and extraordinary person? And wow, what a life she had! I have a few of her books on audio, and she narrates them! I just love hearing her voice. It's just like she's right here with me. 😊 I feel like she was my grandma! 💖💛💖 (edited) 6y

Librarianaut Hey, nothing wrong with enjoying a good kids' book!!! The thing I love about children's lit is that the author has no room for lame stories- kids just won't tolerate it!! Kids don't tolerate it...so when I find a book beloved by kids I know I will probably enjoy it too. Bunnicula is a *classic* in my book 😍📘😹 6y
Sparkpuppypup @Librarianaut I completely agree! I'm actually amazed at how well written some kid's books are. Better than a lot of the adult stuff out there! 6y

This book follows a group of very privileged kids in the San Francisco Bay area, and one of their teachers for several years. Oh, how I loved this book! The writing was absolutely beautiful, and the character development was fantastic. This one will stay with me for a long time. I can't stop thinking about these people. I can't wait to see what's next for this author!

Alfoster Oh, that sounds so good!! 6y

Just Fly Away | Andrew McCarthy
Pickpick

I was initially attracted to this book because of the author, Andrew McCarthy. Well, he's more than just a great actor! I was definitely pulled in to the story immediately. I cared about the characters, which is always the most important aspect of any book I read. I found Lucy to be a sympathetic character, and could completely understand her feelings about what she "found out" about her family. This is a great "Teen Read!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I absolutely LOVED this book. Possibly more than I should have. I think I had a smile on my face the whole time I was reading it. 😍❤️☺️

Claudia.joyce I have a friend whose kids are named Dash(iell) and Lily. Are the main characters of the book named after Dashiell Hammett and his partner Lily? 7y
Sparkpuppypup @Claudia.joyce It never comes out and says so, but I would think so. Dash's real name in the book is Dashiell. Another book by the same duo of authors is Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist. Among the characters that Dashiell Hammett created, are Nick and Nora! 😊 7y

Sparkpuppypup @TheNextBook LOL!!!! Ummm..... How many times have you read The Stand? I re-read it last year with my sister, so it's pretty fresh in my memory. But I think you might remember a lot of the little things I'm taking about without having to re-read it. Unless you really want to, of course! Haha! 7y
