    1. Based on life at Monica Edwards s own farm, this is a fictional tale of a farm family The father is a book illustrator and sketches the ponies or nature while the kids both go to school and work the farm or help their mother I like that Lindsey the daughter helps in the farmhouse but also does the farm work The farm this was 1950s is already outdated as they have just stopped using horses to pull a plough and got a tractor, but don t have proper harrows for the tractor and end up getting two pon [...]


    2. Or Be Yewself no, seriously, I made that up.A hugely enjoyable read, most likely for girls, because in the search to avoid fellings intentional spelling , much is underpinned by emotional expression and about what s right The plot is one of survival in its many guises, and needless to say for a British 1963 childrens book all concludes happily.Most striking is the amount of skilled help rendered by Dion, Lindsey and Peter when their parents fall ill with influenza They step in to run the family [...]
