The Tuckers Series

Level 5

The Tuckers is a children’s book series released in the 1960s that we are thrilled to have discovered. Not all of the books in the series are recommended, but the books that are recommended are absolutely fantastic! Our favorite in the series is The Adventures of Plum Tucker. In this book the Tuckers meet and fall in love with a puppy, which leads them into unexpected adventures and lessons. The story is wholesome and humorous, beautifully written, and the ending made us teary eyed. This is not the first book in the series, but it works great as a stand alone.

Books in this series we have reviewed and recommend: The Special Secret, Here Comes a Friend, The Adventures of Plum Tucker

Books in this series that did not make the booklist: The Wonderful House, That Kitten Again!, Trouble on Valley View
