1. Are there are more than 2 Moffat books? I think so. Right? I read the first one and loved it but then recall forgetting which order the books went in and wondering whether or not I had all of them so I stopped reading. I’ll have to begin at the beginning. That would make a fun read aloud series. They really are quite good!

      Yes, there are four: The Moffats, The Middle Moffat, Rufus M., and The Moffat Museum. I’m reading Rufus M. now. Delightful!

  2. What age (for content) do you recommend the books you listed? I had forgotten about the Moffats. Will dig those out for M, age 8. 🙂 The Penderwicks I will hold off for a tiny bit longer. Betsy-Tacy she has already read the ones you listed. 🙂

      I’m sorry I’m just now seeing your questions and responding. I’m not sure how I missed them!

      I think the Melendys would be fine for now, especially if you read them aloud. My girls, ages 10 and 9, were 9 and 8 when we started reading them, and they have read and re-read them on their own. Thimble Summer would be great for now, too.

      The Moffats are good ANY time! 🙂

      Waiting on the Penderwicks might be a good idea, depending on how you feel about boy/girl relationships, however slight. The latest book, Penderwicks in Spring, has the girls quite a bit older. I haven’t read it yet, but my girls have.

      Great quesitons!
