A Nostalgic Revisit

I found this listed in the recent kids book sale and I don't know if it was the impending holiday season or a sense of nostalgia, but I snapped it up. I read L'Engle's books to my children when they were young. Re-listening reminded me so much of all that wonderful read aloud time spent together.

This book really captured a strong sense of old style family life. It was filled with the clamor and excitement of grappling with growing up in a household full of people. To be certain, being published in 1960 makes a good bit of the action and approach seem dated. In fact, it probably offers a fascinating window into a very different world for todays young listeners. The writing centered itself around the family dinner table, written snail mail letters and a landline as your only means of communication and connection. In short, a blast from the pre-internet and constantly connected past.

To me this was a fun bit of nostalgia and might be a good listen together book to enjoy with your own children.
