Five Little Peppers and How They Grew

Our rating: ****

Ever since her husband died, Mrs. Pepper has been trying to earn enough money to pay for the rent of the little brown house and feed her five children: Ben, Polly, Joel, David, and Phronsie. But when they meet a boy named Jasper and his rich father, could it be that good times are in store for the Peppers?

This book is like a good old friend to me. It’s fun to see how little Phronsie and Jasper’s father get along together.
