These books are all based on stories the author’s own grandmother told her of childhood on a 19th century farm. They’re STORIES, sweet and simple, inspirational, but with character-building lessons. They remind me of the Little House on the Prairie books in term of their simplicity and the heart that obviously went into the writing. Great morals and a lot of fun!
Each story is rather short, great for bedtime reading or family read aloud. Mabel and her best friend Sarah Jane get into loads of mischief, but everything always turns out well in the end.
Great for fans of Little House on the Prairie and The Penderwicks.
