Betty MacDonald: Mrs Piggle Wiggle's Farm



R thinking it was all that funny I loved the writing style and the illustrations were great I was not satisfied with the nding Mary Poppins leaves and rather than the family coming together like in the movie the mother calls for the cook to put the children to bed so she can be off to her dinner party Like my reviews Then you should follow me Because I have hundreds just like this one With Water Music each review I provide a Cleanliness Report mentioning any objectionable content I come across so that parents andor conscientious readers like me can determine beforehand whether they want to read a book or not Content surprises are super annoyingspecially when you re 100 pages in so here s my attempt to help you avoid thatSo Follow or Friend me here on GoodReads You ll see my updates as I m reading and know which books I m liking and what I m not finishing and why You ll also be able to utilize my library for looking up titles to see whether the book you re thinking about reading next has any objectionable content or not From swear words to romance to bad attitudes in children s books I cover it all Betty MacDonald That s all I have to say This past weekend my husband and I had a major household project For the past twenty plus years we d slept on a mattress placed on a wooden platform which the previous owners of our home had constructed in our bedroom We d not had the inclination before to dismantle it but when our mattress began causing my back too much pain we decided to buy a real bed and take the platform down on Memorial Day weekend So we didPart of the platform was a wooden shelf right behind the bed where we d put books and a table lamp and papers and things Unfortunately there was a crack between the shelf and the wall and sometimes things would fall down inside there We actually bore a hole in there to retrieve them but sometimes we couldn t be bothered There is a point to all this bear with meSo when we took the shelf down we were greeted with a half inch of dust and some papers and things which we d forgotten about Among Revived everything was the local library copy of MRS PIGGLE WIGGLE S FARM which I d taken out in December of 1992 Now I remember paying the fine for a lost book but not actually losing itConfession I wish I could say I got this out for my daughter but she wasleven months old at the time It was for ME Yes I still read children s books And Student Research Projects in Calculus enjoy themActually this was one I d not read as a child It wasntertaining I love the way MacDonald describes adults as rather clueless misguided morons The kids ven when they re being broken of horrible habits are the heroes Of course there s Mrs Piggle Wiggle but she seems as if she never completely grew up herself That s the appeal of the storiesNot the best of the series but ntertaining and much better than the Love for Imperfect Things effort from 2007 which is best ignoredOh and we love the new bed too. E problem from pet forgetter itis to fraidycat ness the parents allxclaim Better call Mrs Piggle Wigg.

I have heard of Mrs Piggle Wiggle but we d never read any of the books in this series before When I saw this audio CD I thought it might be a good one to listen to A Heart of Stone even though I was pretty sure it was not the first book in the series As I started to post my review here I see that it s the third book in the series but we had no difficulties understanding the context of the story and wenjoyed listening to the different stories about the hard to manage children Mrs Piggle Wiggle approaches ach child with just the right attitude and puts them to work in such a way that they are able to overcome fears or break out of bad habits The confidence they gain on her farm goes a long way toward making them responsi We likes Mrs Piggle Wiggles Farm much better then Mrs Piggle Wiggles Magic My girls are xcited to go on to the next book and I love that it allows for discussions about some of their negative behaviors without making it just about them and having them feel bad we Love Mrs Piggle Wiggle I sat down and read all four Mrs Piggle Wiggle books in one fell 2 day or so swoop Take aways 1 All the children in Mrs Piggle Wiggle grew up to be hippies went to Vietnam danced disco got rich in the 1980s went through tech bubbles and real Language and Linguistics estate booms and now are retiringn mass 2 Hilary Knight and Maurice Sendak are Divertimento eually good illustrators and theirnvisioning of Mrs Piggle Wiggle herself are totally different but both versions smell like gingerbread and are very huggable 3 There were no children of color in any of the Piggle Wiggle books which bothered me now and did not bother me when I was 8 4 Betty MacDonald must have a shit ton of fun coming up with all of these names some are pure baby boomer Molly Susan Linda Dick and some are just delightful Fetlock Percy Penzil Morton Heatherwick I really Love Is a Fairy Tale enjoyed this than Mrs Piggle Wiggle s magic The cures were creative and I loved the farm life in it We get to know Mrs Piggle Wiggle in this book which I also love I mxcited for Hello Mrs Piggle Wiggle I would recommend to people who are looking for books to read aloud Oh what a broad range of reaction is to be found in a three star review A casual observer might think that I liked the first three Mrs Piggle Wiggle books Promise at Dawn eually How wrong that observer would be The first one was suarely in the middle of the spectrum Truly I liked it no no less The second one was a high three I uitenjoyed reading it aloud but as it isn t something I would ver pick up and reread to myself for pleasure it couldn t uite make the leap across the 4 star divide This one sadly is a low three Only the fact that my son was still as nthusiastic as Bangkok Wakes to Rain ever about the series during the course of the book has saved it from the ignominy of a twoAs a few other reviewers have noted this book while as long as the others only has five chapters whereas the others haveight sugges.
