The Children of Willow Farm
Enid Blyton was a very popular British writer who wrote nearly 800 books for children in the early to mid-1900s. I do not recommend most of Blyton’s books because they contain words such as “idiot” and “shut up,” and show some slightly inappropriate behaviors as acceptable. However, I do recommend The Children of Willow Farm, which is a wholesome story that teaches children about life on a British farm in the 1940s. The story contains some great messages, and my children really liked it.
The book is out of print, and is not likely to be found in your local library in America. However, you may find used copies on Amazon.com or abebooks.com.
