Five Little Peppers and How They Grew

Five Little Peppers and How They Grew by Margaret Sidney
By:

The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew tells the story of how the Peppers live, learn, and play in their little brown house. They are poor, and Mamsie must work constantly to keep the wolf from the door but they do it with gaiety and spirit that would not be expected.

The Peppers make due with whatever they have and the elder children try to make things special for the younger. Though tragedies often befall them, they bear it as best they are able and make the most of the good.

I love this book! It's so good.

I unfortunately submitted a review after the second chapter, which was a mistake. The first reader, Amy Benson is wonderful, then chapters 3-6 are nearly impossible to understand, due to a poor recording quality combined with a strong foreign accent. The other various readers are pretty good, but if you want to know what happens in chapters 3-6, you might want to read them. I understand how hard it is to speak correctly in another language, but I don't believe this is a good forum to practice, unless you can be more understood.

This reader lives the story, and has a new tone for each character. Wonderful!

I liked the girl Sarah reading the first chapter. She read quite well and was articulate. It was a surprise to have a new reader on chapter two. But she read well. It was a shock to have another reader on chapter three. She was from Holland or Germany and I couldn't understand her. She reads for a few chapters then there is someone else. But I quit listening at chapter 3.
