Comments on this book by Dr. Mary Kay Clark: Another story of the adventures of the children on the Mitchell family, here living in Quebec. Mrs. Mitchell just had twin babies and the children need to get along with the nurse who did not understand each one of the children's personalities. Daddy talked to them about helping with the chores around the house as the children sometimes escaped to the attic to find refuge! This is a story of a family of children learning to play together, to get along together, to do what mom and dad want yet to have their own adventures. It is a story of growing up in a large family when there is never enough money, but new adventures are just around the corner.
This book is part of a treasury of wholesome, character-building literature from Bethlehem Books.
