  1. I’m reading Caddie Woodlawn, I might finish today to get me under the February deadline. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve never read it before; I don’t think. I have a vague recollection of trying it when I was a kid and not liking it but I can’t imagine that’s true because I should have LOVED this book as a girl. It’s a little bit of Laura Ingalls and Anne of Green Gables all mixed up with maybe a sprinkle of spunk from Ramona. So glad this challenge pushed me to finally read it. I’m looking forward to enjoying it again with Z. in a few years.

      Caddie Woodlawn was a favorite of mine as a child. We’ve read it and listened to it in audiobook. We also went back and read Caddie Woodlawn’s Family, which is also very good.
      So glad you’re reading along! Link up when you get it finished–there’s no deadline!

      I LOVE Thimble Summer, Kirsten. We have “discovered” Enright over the past few years in reading the Melendy Quartet, though I actually loved Thimble Summer as a child. If you haven’t read the Melendys, well, get busy! SO, SO GOOD!

      • We read “The Saturdays” a couple years ago, and we have thought about reading the sequels, but my daughter claims she forgot what happened in The Saturdays, so she told me she wants to re-read it first before we read any more. ๐Ÿ™‚ We got it from the library the first time around, so I think I might have to buy a copy and just leave it somewhere where she will pick it up and read it the next time she can’t decide what to read. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. You’ve piqued my interest enough that I’m tempted to read Invincible Louisa for my 30s challenge – though I’ve still got Roller Skates and Mr. Popper’s Penguins staring at me, too! I’m determined in March to get both February and March done!

      Stephanie,
      I’ve never read Roller Skates, but Mr. Popper’s Penguins is just a delight. We used to listen to it over and over in audiobook. I think it would make a great read-aloud. Invincible Louisa is a bit more sophisticated but also so good. I definitely think you can “catch up.” ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I read Mr. Popper’s Penguins this month (actually a re-read, but it’d been awhile). A cute little story. I’m glad I kept the book around, even though my little girls are now big girls and out of the house. ๐Ÿ™‚
