Cute, but not my favorite of the Bobbsey twins book.
Nov 24, 2015 Brenda rated it really liked it
Loved this book as a child. Wholesome adventure. Loved reading this again as a Grandma. It was written @ the beginning of the Space Race so it was very interesting to re-read it again 44 years later!
This was trip down memory lane for me. I loved The Bobbsey Twins series when I was a kid, and I read all that I could put my hands on. I had discovered a set of them in my grandmother's attic, and they were all the original editions, published in the early years of the 20th century. This is a title that I never found. I loved visiting with Nan and Bert, and Freddie and Flossie. The plot is simple: Mr. Bobbsey takes the family to Washington, DC on an extended business trip. The children go sights ...more

What trouble the littlest twins get into!
Freddie got lost at the Sears Tower, read to find out where and what they found him doing.
Flossie got lost at the Library of Congress, she was looking for a picture book, read to find out where they found the little cutie pie.
Flossie's hat blue out the window of the Washington monument. Did she get it back??? you will have to read and find out!
Freddie rang the fire bell and called "FIRE!!" on the boat on the way to Mt. Vernon, to find out what a com

Perhaps my imagination is too active, but knowing that these B. Twins books were written by ghost writers and committees, I felt like whomever wrote this one has a wicked sense of humor. There seemed to be a faint touch of irony to the formulaic descriptions of the kids and a tongue implanted in a cheek during some of the "mishaps" that so readily befall the kids in these stories. I only have 3 of these left to read from the original public domain avialable series and this is far and away the mo ...more

The Bobbsey's visit Washington DC on a class tripand solve two mysteries: The missing plans of an inventor they know, and the missing pieces of a tea set for Miss Pomfret.

My what another world it was. Where kids could leave their school trip and go all over DC by themselves, walking up to strangers and ask questions. LOL

I loved the DC setting with all its visits to landmarks and places I know. I laughed at their amazement at the "foreign" food shishkabobs. Very nostalgic read.

I read every Bobbsey Twins adventures I could get my hands on from the age of 9 through 11. Summers were wonderful and I could borrow from the library and read these books. I could borrow 8 books every 2 weeks. Soon, I needed more than that and had to fight the librarian for more books. Now, I can do 8 books in a day. Sigh.

I remember reading the Bobbsey Twins books when I was little. Reaqding one as an adult brought back memories. The book is a bit silly with the little twins doing naughty things and not getting in trouble.

Not as good as Enid Blyton, it is the same idea, but doesn't have that British charm
