My grandaughter loves these books - I lost my copies during a house move so to be able to buy them again was brilliant.

fun across the generations 17 Feb 2008

I liked these as a youngster many oh many years ago! This year I bought two for my daughter & she gives them 2 thumbs up. She's mentally challenged, so this is high marks to grab & keep her attention. I'd estimate them for grade 3+ readers.

I have never read the Bobbsey Twins series and have enjoyed these immensely. Although they are rated for children I found them to be very cute and a fast read.
Another charming story from long ago 24 July 2014
By Sarah - Published on Amazon.com

This book was another delightful tale of the Bobbsey Twins and their adventures. In this story, the set out on their new houseboat for their summer vacation. They encounter a mean farmer, a mystery of disappearing food, and a your boy who has been mistreated. All in all another cute, sweet, and old-fashioned story.

I must say I have been so surprised at the number of reviews that say that this series is racist. However, I think I finally understand what they are talking about. The cook and her husband are very uneducated, which at first seems to put them in a bad light, but I think that people have it wrong. I think the people that they really shame, is the culture of the time. Blacks were not given the opportunity to get a good education therefore how could they be expected to talk like an educated person. We may not like the fact that there was a time when African-American's were treated this way, but it is a fact. To pretend it didn't happen, and to pretend that we have they have always been educated is unfair to both us and the African-American community.

This series captures a long ago era in a charming way.

It is great a classic available for free. My daughter loves The Bobbsey Twins, and she was thrilled it was available for free for her Kindle she just received. Thanks Amazon. :=)
