The Cobble Street Cousins.
A series of 6 books written by Cynthia Rylant.
This is the sweetest little series of books. I highly recommend it!
Perfect for a little girl who is ready to move from picture books to chapter books.
These are written in a "beginner" chapter book format. Short chapters. Lots of illustrations.
The illustrations are really charming. The illustrator, Wendy Anderson Halperin, did an amazing job.
In addition to the sweet illustrations, the plot lines in these books are so enjoyable for little girls. (and for moms who love darling little stories like these!)
My only complaint about these books is that there are only 6. I wish there were dozens more!
