Overview

Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans

In an old house in Paris
that was covered with vines
lived twelve little girls
in two straight lines
the smallest one was Madeline.
 
 
Nothing frightens Madeline—not tigers, not even mice. With its endearing, courageous heroine, cheerful humor, and wonderful, whimsical drawings of Paris, the Madeline stories are true classics that continue to charm readers, even after 75 years!

Ludwig Bemelmans (1898-1962) was the author of the beloved Madeline books, including Madeline, a Caldecott Honor Book, and Madeline's Rescue, winner of the Caldecott Medal.

We have a long commute in our car to & from school, so we listen to children's books on CD to break up the time. Both of my kids, a 7 year old boy & a 3 year old girl enjoy listening to this, as does the rest of our carpool, ranging in ages up to 7. It is a classic that is just as enjoyable as when I read it when I was little.

Every little girl loves Madeline books. There is something appealing about the repetition from book to book. Children love the fact that they can remember part of the books from one to the other because they repeat. A few books from this series with a Madeline doll make a great gift.

'Madeline' by Ludwig Berrelmans is a book about a little girl named Madeline. She lives with 12 other little girls. Madeline is the smallest of the group. This is a book about how Madeline's appendix was hurting her. The doctor took Madeline to the hospital. Find out if Madeline feels better...I love this book because it is inspiring to me. I love the adventures that Madeline takes. Madeline is a good main character because she is a very nice character.

'Madeline' by Ludwig Bemelmans is a book about a girl named Madeline. Madeline is a very cute girl who always wears a skirt. Madeline always goes away from the group, until... I love this book because Madeline wears yellow and my favorite color is yellow too. I also like how Madeline's friends treat her. They are very nice to her. Madeline is the smallest girl of the group. Even though Madeline is the smallest she is not scared of many things.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was fun to read and get into the story. The pictures also made it very easy to follow along. I think its a great book for girls as well as boys to read.

I have loved this book since hearing it, then reading it for myself at three and a half years of age. The meter lends itself to memorization, and the story is as good for boys as it is for girls.

This book was purchased as a gift for my 2 1/2 year old daughter while she was in the hospital recovering from an appendectomy. She instantly loved it and likes to see that she and the Madeline doll have the same scar! This book and doll helped make having major surgery much less scary for her.

IT WAS SHORT AND HUMOROUS.THE PICTURES IN PARIS WAS GREAT. SMALLER CHILDREN MAY FIND COURAGE IN THIS BOOK IF THEY HAVE THOSE SAME FEARS OF HOSPITALS. MADELINE WAS A GOOD BOOK.

This book is a great example of realistic fiction for the time in which it was written. Madeline is a little girl just like many others, living in a house with eleven others. This book is a great example of realistic fiction because it accurately and intriguingly depicts a believable story that children would love. Madeline and her friends go on walks, brush their teeth, and deal with real life situations.

Interesting illustrations of landmarks in Paris. Simple rhyming text. However the situation and plot are so dated they are hard to appreciate. A residential school for kindergarten or grade 1 girls, staffed by nuns? An appendix attack that requires 2 weeks in hospital?

I forgot how good this story was. Very cute and sad at the same time.

i chose to read this book many years ago [50+] in summer camp, mostly because its name is the same as mine, and i had never before seen my name in print. i loved it immediately and still remember some of its text and illustrations.
