I bet you did. The characters were realistic, and each story was an accurate snapshot of human life and interaction. In dining-room, study, and nursery there was choice and arrangement; but the Little Bookroom gathered to itself a motley crew of strays and vagabonds, outcasts from the ordered shelves below, the overflow of parcels bought wholesale by my father in the sales-rooms. Even in the earliest stories, the author's tone was modern and sardonic, and she wrote from a perspective on life that is very different from mine.

But the stories— oh, the stories. Dear readers, the depth of love I have for this story cannot be measured in pint pots. She begins with a collection of 'Vermont Memories', stories written about her family and neighbors in the Green Mountains, and ends with 'War', stories about the French people with whom she lived and worked during the World Wars. One of Farjeon's talents was to make history easy and memorable.

It felt like my own secret treasure. And lovely illustrations as well! Even better if you can find their CD and sing along. All of them remind you that there is good in the world. How can I put it?

There was no selection or sense of order here. Sam likes it. Speaking as objectively as possible, these are good short stories, and I think many people would enjoy them--but they're not my style.

The Giant and the Mite — a vast, brainless giant teams up with a wise mite, which causes endless troubles until the Angels find a solution. Today Eleanor Farjeon's most widely known work is the children's hymn "Morning has Broken", written in to an old Gaelic tune associated with the Scottish village Bunessan.

Cute and imaginative. One of Farjeon's talents was to make history easy and memorable. In The Little Bookroom moved to Equitable Place where it stayed for sixteen years before being forced to move once again to the shop in Elizabeth street that most are now familiar with.

The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year, Volume 1, by Jonathan Strahan I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this anthology, particularly the science fiction stories. Alice McLerran, Barbara Cooney: Roxaboxen As children, my sisters and The little bookroom book were much inspired by this story of neighbor children and their own little town on a hill.

Well-written, striking, and with that perfect little The little bookroom book that makes one sit back and reflect after each story.

The room would not have been the same without its dust: star-dust, gold-dust, fern-dust, the dust that returns to dust under the earth, and comes up from her lap in the shape of a hyacinth.

You can find the full list of these wonderful publications here ; so far I have read 25 out of 90, with several others currently in my TBR pile. A silly folk tale about a cat who starts eating everything in his path. But I didn't like them. What sort of stories was I in for?

The Little Bookroom Saturday, February 11, I've been reading a recent edition of John Holt's book of homeschooling, Teach Your Own, mostly because I think John Holt is brilliant. I don't, of course, need to be convinced that homeschooling is a good idea, but sometimes it is helpful to be reminded why I'm choosing to keep my children at.
