26 Fairmount Avenue
I have read two books in this series—What a Year and On My Way. These are stories based on Tomie dePaola’s childhood. The stories support strong families, respect, good manners, and good behavior. The stories are interesting and sometimes humorous, but they are not fast-paced or exciting. There is also some educational value as children learn about life during the 1940s. The series goes as follows (bold=recommended; not bold=not yet reviewed) but does not have to be read in order: 26 Fairmount Avenue; Here We All Are; On My Way; What a Year; Things Will Never Be the Same; I’m Still Scared, Why?
