What a cute book for children and for parents. I say parents because this fun story about what party telephone lines used to be gives parents a chance to add a little education to this story. Even more so, there is an important lesson in values here. Explained lightly, sweetly, and yet very real. The rhyming prose and the illustrations just make it a fun book for all.
Kelly McInenly has what I think are 3 books in this series titled “Little Milly and the Great Lakes”. All have good reviews. Hope she continues helping parents teach, and children learn, what are values that really need to be a part of our lives.
Read an excerpt...
In the Lake girls’ time – nineteen hundred and nine,
Many homes were connected by telephone line.
Neighbours had their own numbers – but the phone line was shared:
You could pick up and listen to all, if you dared.
And the Lake girls did dare – they goaded each other,
“Peg, pick up the phone and pretend you’re a mother!”
About Kelly McInenly...
Kelly knew Little Milly Lake as Grandma Mill McInenly. The usually serious Mildred would occasionally surprise her granddaughter with tales of the fun and mischief that she and her five older sisters found growing up in the Maritimes in the early 1900s. The combination of little money or supervision, and a notoriously grumpy father, made for simple stories with just the right blend of silly and sweet.
Little Milly and the Great Lakes is Kelly’s first creative writing endeavor… she has been distracted by Little Mateo and Little Lucas.
