Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

 This book took me back to when the good ol' days were just that The Good Ol' Days when a neighbor was a true neighbor and families stuck together. The story is very heartwarming, easy reading especially for the ages between 8 and 12. I especially enjoyed this book because as the author writes about different happenings, the reader could easily visualize the actions and surroundings. This book would make a great gift and I hope that she continues to write more books for this age group
