Arleta Richardson has done it again! In Still More Stories from Grandma's Attic, Book 3, we hear Grandma Mabel telling us more hilarious stories of her mischievous childhood, along with her best friend Sarah Jane, and her two brothers, Reuben and Roy. As a child around six, you will find her in many a different pickle due to her absent-mindedness! Days of old, with little earthly goods, yet blessed with much. God's mercy and grace, understanding and warmth are shown through her dad without using the 'switch.' Arleta's books are great for young girls to learn the principles of obedience, character and love for God. They show the simpler side of life which I think children of today would be privileged to learn from-learning to slow down and enjoying life without so much activity. They contain just plain, good old stories with Godly perspectives and practical lessons of yesteryear, which are actually still pertinent today. Love these books! This book was provided by Audra Jennings of The B&B Media Group, Inc., in exchange for my honest review. No monetary compensation was exchanged.

This is the third book in this wonderful series. These stories are over a hundred years old, but with good messages for today. What wonderful heartwarming stories, my kids love to have them read to them. You will find that Pa better listen to Ma when she has her heart set on something. You will meet their great Dog Pep, and how he can spell! You will be chuckling with many of the things that Mable and Sarah Jane seem to get into. Be prepared for a few tissues, but also with a good many belly laughs! Enjoy! I received this book from the Publisher, and was not required to give a positive review.

A great book for girls and boys who want to read amusing stories from a grandmas childhood and through the stories learn good morals and values.

Reason for Reading: Next in the series.Continuing along in the same format as the first two books, Arleta is living with her Grandmother and Uncle Roy. Each chapter is an individual story which starts off with Arleta in the present and her grandmother ends up telling her a tale of when she was a little girl in the 1880's. The time frame has moved ahead a little bit from the previous two books though Mabel (Grandma) does go back as far as being six years old; she is mostly 12/13 and the majority of the stories involve her and her best friend Sarah Jane and their life in rural Michigan on a farm. Mabel and Sarah Jane are good girls but they always manage to get themselves into trouble with their fancies and mischief. This time their adventures include a home-made wrinkle cream, trying to get by without wearing their long underwear under their stockings, a week's trip to the city, a surprise birthday party where no one invites the birthday celebrant and eating windfalls (apples) from a neighbours orchard. Wonderful, wholesome stories that will appeal to fans of the Little House or Betsy-Tacy books. These are wonderful examples of Christian fiction, but no religion is no more excessive than that being the way of life for the folks back then. Some stories have no indication they could be classified as Christian while others may have the parents teaching their children a behaviour lesson through scripture. It is all very low key. Think of the Christian element used in the LHOTP TV show.
