A Little Oven

Our rating: ***

Genevieve came to Connecticut from France. Helena came from California. The two became friends and often played together. Every day, when Helena was tired, her mother would pick her up and say, “I guess what you need is a little loving and a little hugging.” When Genevieve went home, she would ask her mother for “a little ‘ovin’ and a little ‘uggin.” Her mother thought Genevieve meant a little oven, so one day she takes her to different stores to shop for a little oven.

A pretty good book. At one point, Helena, who’s from California, says she chews in French, and Genevieve, who’s from France, says she chews in English. Hmm. Well, you can see our Book Tips page for tips on how to find out of print books. Enjoy!
