Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4Two more beginning chapter-book series titles that young girls will adore. Three nine-year-old cousinsTess, Lily, and Rosielive with their Aunt Lucy while their parents tour with a ballet company. In Some Good News, the girls create a local newspaper; in Special Gifts, they learn to sew. The simple plots rise and fall gently with enough action and activity to interest beginning readers. These are lighthearted stories with happy endings. The minutely detailed pencil-and-watercolor artwork sprinkled throughout the books reveals the unique personalities of the girls and creates a wonderfully serene setting. Readers are going to wish they, too, lived on Cobble Street. Good alternatives to The American Girls series (Pleasant Company).Sarah ONeal, Salt Lake County Library System, UT

My 5 year old daughter loves the CobbleStreet Cousins series. We have been reading it over and over and over again since she was about 4. Cynthia Rylant (also writes Henry and Mudge) writes a nice story about three 9 year old cousins who spend a year with their Aunt Lucy while their parents are travelling with the ballet. During the year they do many activities, such as forming a cookie company, writing a newspaper, making doll houses, performing (songs and poems), and planning a wedding.

It was a very good book. I like the characters because they are pretty and it is fun to hear their thoughts. The characters have good ideas. I also like books with pictures, they help me figure out what is going on in the story and this book has several pictures. I really liked the Junie B. Jones books and was looking for other books to read. I finally found the Cobble Street Cousins series and really enjoy them.

I like this book because I like its' newspaper. It showed me how Lily Rosie and Tess put a newspaper together. It's a lot like the newsletter than Morgan and Julia and I write.
