All good things must come to an end and that is just what is happening for the Cobble Street cousins and their time together at Aunt Lucy's. But change, even though it is emotional and difficult, doesn't have to be all sad if we have hope and look to the future. That is just what they do - turn the sadness of endings into a celebration of new beginnings. A good lesson/ reminder for young and old alike :)

This is a sweet tale of three cousins who live together with their aunt. It's the first book we've read in this series, but I have a feeling that it's one of the last books in the series because they are celebrating their parents' return from being on tour and sad because they will miss living all together. Our girls really enjoyed this story and we will read more of the books from this series as we come across them in our local library.

I finished reading the fifth book of the series. Actually, I have the Japanese translation version. So, I have read the version two years ago before I read it in English. I found the book series accidentally on I prefer reading the series in English than reading them in Japanese. English version let me expand my imaginations more.

I also can't wait to read Aunt Lucy's wedding party. I definitely think after I finish all the series, I will miss the three cousins in the books!

A brief sweet story about three cousins who have been living with Aunt Lucy and now with their parents returning they will be going home. They will celebrate the end of living together for a year with a sumer party. This is a joyful story and depicts the joyous happenings that can be shared with cousins.

One of the sweetest chapter book series ever. My mom's been reading them to Molly, but I got to read her this one.

This just might be my favorite early reader series.
I used to love these books. They're great for young readers.

3.5 stars. Not riveting, but sweet and simple and good for a lazy afternoon.
