5.0 out of 5 stars This is a delightful book 10 Jan 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent book. Our daughter is 3 and enjoys having it read over and over again. The main reason I love it is that is has a strong female lead in the young girl who accompanies her mother on a trip to town. The girl's observations about everyday things are amusing and intelligent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brill :) 24 Jan 2002
By Ava Esposito - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Wow, what a sweet book.
This story is told by the little girl who is going to town with her mother for the morning.
She has a big green pocketbook, just like Mama's, but hers is empty and she can't find anything to put inside it.
Mama says "hurry", because the bus is coming, so the little girl brings her empty pocketbook along anyway.
During the course of the morning, she gathers many treasures and by the time the bus comes to return the girl and her mother home, her pocketbook is full.

The little girl's view of the world is refreshing and enchanting.
She observes that the cool marble walls in the bank smell like pennies. And she is amazed that, at the drycleaners, the machine knows exactly where to stop for mama's suit.
This is a delightful book that moms and daughters will enjoy, but both boys and girls will like hearing it, and seeing the usual best from Candice Ransom and Felicia Bond's wonderful illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars a favorite in our house 3 Sep 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book reminds me so much of when I was a little girl and went with my mother to run errands. Back then the stores really did hand out keyrings and pocket calendars and my Grandma worked at a dry cleaner so I got to see the "magic machine" a lot when people picked up their clothes. My girls both love this book, even though the oldest is now 13. We have completely worn out the binding of the hardback copy we have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely bond between mom and daughter 29 Aug 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a wonderful book for mothers to read to or with their daughters. A simple day of errands turns into something magical between them and a hand-me-down green pocketbook holds the key to a delightful day.

Fantastic story, amazing illustrations. My daughters and I have both loved this book from the first time that we read it. The story is sweet and you just want this little girl's day to last forever. A must read, over and over.
