Family Bits: Retro Read

The Penderwicks is a fun family read aloud, if you are looking for a story of innocence, of four loving sisters, a gentle father, the boy next door, some pets, and a summer's adventure. This book won the National Book Award 2005 for Jeanne Birdsall.

Its really cute. I recommend it for anyone who yearns for Old New England and adorably intellectual parents.
