FIVE LITTLE PEPPERS




A HOME VIEW


The little old kitchen had quieted down from the bustle and confusion
of mid-day; and now, with its afternoon manners on, presented a holiday
aspect, that as the principal room in the brown house, it was eminently
proper it should have. It was just on the edge of the twilight; and the
little Peppers, all except Ben, the oldest of the flock, were enjoying
a "breathing spell," as their mother called it, which meant some
quiet work suitable for the hour. All the "breathing spell" they could
remember however, poor things; for times were always hard with them
nowadays; and since the father died, when Phronsie was a baby, Mrs.
Pepper had had hard work to scrape together money enough to put bread
into her children's mouths, and to pay the rent of the little brown
house.

But she had met life too bravely to be beaten down now. So with a stout
heart and a cheery face, she had worked away day after day at making
coats, and tailoring and mending of all descriptions; and she had seen
with pride that couldn't be concealed, her noisy, happy brood growing
up around her, and filling her heart with comfort, and making the little
brown house fairly ring with jollity and fun.

"Poor things!" she would say to herself, "they haven't had any bringing
up; they've just scrambled up!" And then she would set her lips together
tightly, and fly at her work faster than ever. "I must get schooling for
them some way, but I don't see how!"

    I Also Recommend:

    A book for a lifetime

    One of my favorite books. Appropriate for preteens and early teenagers. Tells a story of family at the turn of the 19th century in American history when a great many hardships had to be overcome just like with todays families.

    I Also Recommend:

    A lovable classic

    I've been reading "Five Little Peppers" over and over again for probably about a decade now. It gives me a window into a time period and a lifestyle that are completely foreign. The story of the five Pepper children and their mother, Mrs. Pepper, trying to eke out a living in post-WWII America is heartwarming, although that sounds cheesy. It's kind of a simplistic tale, but it really makes you feel the way the characters do - their enthusiasm, their despair, the challenges and triumphs of their daily lives spring to life. The relationships that the family members have with each other are what sustains them and ultimately leads them to success. Part of the allure of this book is how wholesome and full of values it is - everyone's heart is in the right place, for fun they tell stories to each other (no video games or TV in sight), and the family's optimism, self-reliance and dedication are boundless. Plus, as with all feel-good stories, of course there's a happy ending. This would be a good choice for anyone ages 8 and up who has read this far and is still interested. :)

    Good

    This is a good book for those of us who do not enjoy sinking in the quagmire of Old English, &ct. It has a nice storyline and good characters. It is definantly not my favorite book, however.

    Excellent Book!

    A book about five children who live in poverty, but are still very optomistic about things! Very excellent surprise ending. I truly reccomend this book.

    The Five Little Peppers And How They Grew

    The Five little peppers And How They Grew is a very charming book. I gave this book four stars! On the plus side it is so sweet the way all the pepper children get along. they care so much about each other. Even though they have no money and are exstrememly poor they have so much love.Margaret Sidney really did a spectactular job on this heartworming story. On the other hand the story can get a little boring at times and you really do not want to keep going but you really should because it is a great book. Also it is kind of old and hard to understand. But those are the only negative things i have to say about The Five Little Peppers And How They Grew. My favorite part of the book is when Polly a child in the story gets a little bird and she loves it so much! I also love when the Pepper children decide to make a cake for their mom who they call mumsie! They have hardly any materials like hood white flour and eggs or butter. But they make a scrumptious cake that everyone loves. That is why i like it so much they take so little and make it seem so grand! I would recamend this book to anyone who likes old fashion books and storys about children. I think most poeple would very much love this book.
