    One thought on “Maggie Rose: Her Birthday Christmas”

    1. This is a thoroughly enjoyable chapter book, first published in 1952, about a girla hardworking eight year old girl, the wonder of her large, lazy, loving familywho wants to give a proper party for her birthday, inviting friends and community on Christmas Eve, which is also her birthday. She tackles this endeavor with gusto, determination, planning. She has help, but not too much. One vignette from the story involves her going fishing with her slightly older brothers for flounder in a little boa [...]

    2. If you like a feel-good story with a happy ending then this book is for you! This story is about a little girl with a lot of spunk, a large, lazy family with a lot of love, and a small town with a generous heart.I read this book to my two little girls, (ages 7 and 9) they loved it and so did I.

    3. I would certainly give this book two and a half stars, and I was very close to rounding that rating up rather than down. One of my favorite things about Ruth Sawyer's books is the permeating quality of old-fashioned goodness and sincerity that always marks them. Her novels are a throwback to several decades before she began her writing career, when legends of literature such as Mary Mapes Dodge, Louisa May Alcott, Kate Douglas Wiggin and Frances Hodgson Burnett were the ones who ruled the roost [...]

    4. This industrious, imaginative girl does the best she can to put on a party for herself. Planning ways to earn and save money, giving up her summer with a long-term goal in mind. The way it comes to fruition is a little unexpected but very sweet.

    5. This is a charming book, especially for girls up to about age 10 or 12. It is out of print, but used copies are not hard to find.
