This book is a great addition to any family library. We loved this story about Judy who comes to live with her cranky old aunt. Judy’s example helps her aunt to find love and forgiveness in her heart. Just a great book overall!
Aunt Maria is a perfect curmudgeon. She’s proud, impenetrable, and intimidating, and even I was afraid of her just reading the book! How wonderful to see, though, that even the coldest of hearts can be warmed up and softened by gentle influence. Number Eleven Poplar Street is a wonderful story of penance and forgiveness for any child to read.
My 10 yo daughter loves both of the books in this set. I enjoyed them as well. Judy is a sweet girl in a new situation who successfully navigates a tricky aunt and helps smooth over some neighborhood conflict. The story is interesting, teaches about the power of kindness, and demonstrates how confidence can grow in new situations by serving others.
My 10 year old read this and the other Poplar Street book in one day! I am happy that she is reading about girls her age that are trying to do good and loving their family, not all the books she reads are quite as uplifting. Even though this story takes place long ago, the life problems Judy encounters are relevant and even the same as the issues we face today!
This is a fun book about a country girl who visits her prim and proper aunt in the city for a month in the summer. Judy is adventuresome, yet she also has respect for her elders. It’s a great book to show how one can love our neighbor in spite of obstacles to overcome.
Judy has never been away from her cozy home in the country before, but this summer she’d to spend a whole month living in town with Aunt Maria on Poplar Street. Why does the street have two houses called Number Eleven? Why won’t Aunt Maria speak to her neighbor? Come along with Judy as she make new friends, solves mysteries, and brings joy to the people of Poplar Street.
Don’t miss Back to Poplar Street!
