    I thought of another wonderful series: the Mary Frances books by Jane Eayre Fryer! They teach different skills in a charming way, including gardening, cooking, sewing, knitting & crocheting, first aid, and housekeeping.

      Yes!! Wendy, we have (and love) all of those! For this series we were hoping to keep to “realistic” books – and those are just a bit magica with the animated tools. In fact, it is in our queue to do a review of that series all on their own! Such special and sweet books! 🙂
