I recently went to the live musical expecting the same cupful of sugar, but was genuinely WOWed at the depths and layers in the Banks family and the more complex themes, which didn't sacrifice the sing-alongs. This spurred me to go see the current movie, "Saving Mr. Banks" which moved me and intrigued me. So I ordered these first three books.
The voice of the narrator is detailed yet cheeky and reads a lot like the character of Mary Poppins herself. The complexity of the family issues (hint: there are more than two kids) are thought-provoking and entertaining. It is a great curl-up afternoon silent read, or works well as a read-aloud (probably because PL Travers had dramatic experience as well).
I chuckle at the complaints that it is not action-oriented or is old-fashioned. But I guess we all approach things with our own expectations, don't we? Isn't that the point?
There are so many more stories and adventures! Don't let childhood slip by without these stories in your child's imagination.
Plus, the stories are fun for you too. They delight forever.
