Book Excerpt: 
. . . but, fearing lest she should waken her mother, she determined to go to the bathroom at the end of the hall rather than use the wash-stand in the room where she was, so she gathered up her clothing in her arms, and went down the entry, made her toilet and crept down stairs. There was a light burning in the lower hallway, but it was dark all through the rest of the house and she was obliged[52] to feel her way through the rooms. There was a noise of some one stirring in the pantry. She opened the door of the kitchen gently and peeped in. A lamp was burning on the table, but no key lay there. Edna tip-toed in quietly and felt on the nail where the key should hang, thrusting aside a gingham apron belonging to Reliance which hung just above its place, but the nail was empty and she was forced to believe she had dropped the key somewhere between the spring-house and the kitchen.

charming!

My copy said this was written in 1916, so it was rather old-fashioned. I really enjoyed reading it because of that. The characters were charming and the story was sweet. The children in the story were not always perfect, so seemed very likeable. I downloaded the other books in this series and will l

Edna’s Thanksgiving fun

This was such a good Thanksgiving story. I love to hear about old-fashioned holidays like that. It reminds me of when My family went to my Grandma’s house. Very good.

Very sweet

This is a sweet and old fashioned little book. I enjoyed it a lot, especially once I was a few chapters in. Perfectly clean and wholesome and refreshing.

This is an enjoyable children's story from the turn of the century.

Old-fashioned and outdated, the dear little girl is wholesome and good.

This is a sweet story written in the early 1900's about a sweet little girl who visits her Grandma with her family during the Thanksgiving week. The story is sweet and little Edna is as the book says a dear little girl. There were a few sad parts including a little girl who I is bound to her Grandpa

Very cute book about going to grandma's farm in the country for Thanksgiving. A taste of what it means to be a little girl living in the city with money vs a little girl brought from the orphanage to serve on the farm. Easy sweet read.

Saccharine sweet, naively written Victorian era americana. No bombs, no zombie apocalypse, the only bad guy is an old (misunderstood) grumpy mcgrumperton.

Interesting side note: besides the nostalgia, it was interesting to me to get glimpses of home life before electricity/refrigeration. At one point

This is a cute story that isn't just made to be read at Thanksgiving. It's probably best for children about ages 8-10. It's mostly a book for girls but would be interesting for boys who really enjoy reading.
