Sintesi dell'editore

The Five Little Peppers are an adorable family of children growing up in a small town and cared for by their widowed mother. She is so poor that the pittance she earns as the town seamstress fails to support or even sustain the family.

Everything happens to this brood while mother is away sewing, but no matter how dangerous the situation, they come out of it safe and smiling. The children are happy despite their poverty, and the smallest pleasures cause delight and merriment in the little house. When the eldest daughter is offered a chance to be adopted by a rich family, she chooses to return to her poor but happy home.

One of my childhood favorites brought to life

What did you love best about The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew?

This is one of the books my mother read to me many times before I was able to read and re-read it myself. I was reminded of how faithfully the little Pepper family "toughed-out" their meager little lives together.

What did you like best about this story?

The positive attitude of the family members and the loyalty to each other

Which scene was your favorite?

When little Phronsie followed the organ grinder out of town and was saved by the big dog and the boy that came to be such a special friend.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Obviously depicting times after the American Civil War, judging by the date of first printing, I enjoyed the demonstration of commradarie in the little town, and the way everyone stuck together to help and support the least fortunate.

Any additional comments?

Short but enjoyable listen. Brought back many pleasant memories of childhood enchantment with the characters.

We enjoyed this book so much!

My children and I are so glad we found this gem again. Old books are the best! The narrator did a fantastic job. My children want to emulate the older Peppers and Jasper now. Good books are great teachers!

what a great find. has a bit of history and gives some good perspective that helped my family feel more fortunate and appreciative of what we have. sweet kids, a few crazy antics and a bit of a surprise twist make this a wonderful book.

i remembered it more fondly that it is

It is always sad. I think, when you revisit something from your childhood and it disappoints. This one did just that. Too bad. I got it for my grandchildren and none of us wished to keep listening past an hour, so we gave up.
