Rosie can create the headlines.
And Tess can do the artwork." And since Aunt Lucy has an old typewriter and a copy machine, it looks like the cousins have everything they need for their great idea -- a newspaper! What a perfect way for the girls to show how much they love living with Aunt Lucy on Cobble Street. Now the only thing the cousins have

A very sweet and funny little book. My children loved the humor and the tenderness. I am a big fan of how much focus Cynthia Rylant puts on elderly neighbors. Nearly every book of hers that we have read has hightled a single person of senior age and always with such vitality and warmth. I think that these books will do great things for my children's love of the neighbors.

Another charming book about three girl cousins and their time together at Aunt Lucy's house. The girls put together a newspaper for the neighborhood and make lots of new friends in the process.

The books in the Cobble Street Cousins series are feel-good books about being creative and loving and having fun. The girls all get along wonderfully and have the nicest ideas, especially to their elderly neighbors. We've really enjoyed reading the books in this series and we are looking forward to the final book, Wedding Flowers (We read Summer Party first, not realizing that it was part of a series, so we went back and read all of the previous stories. Now we are caught up and ready for the en ...more

I read the forth book of the series today. I quite enjoy reading each book. I especially like the forth one. Each book has a season, and the forth book season is my favorite season, spring!

In the forth book, we have a new character. He is a friend of Michael's grandfather. What is the coincidence! We also have a new animal character. He is a pet dog of Michael's father. Although I am a big fan of dogs, I am very curious of the dog.

So, I can't wait to read what will happen to next!

I remembering falling in love with the people of Cobblestreet when I first read this in elementary school. I adored the three girls, I adored the aunt and Michael, and I adored the flower shop. Yes, the characters are underdeveloped, and it's not the greatest book ever written, but it has a certain charm that will definitely appeal to children.

Oh, to have fun with one's cousins and these three are having an adventure living together with Aunt Lucy for the year. In this title the girls write a newspaper about Cobble Street and give it to their neighbors. The newspaper and its stories are shown in the illustrations.

I absolutely adore this series by Cynthia Rylant. It's like a starter course of women's domestic stories. I betcha the little girls who love these books will grow up to love Rosamund Pilcher, too.

This was the last book that I read in this series. The Cobble Street Cousin send out their own newspaper!
(In Comparison: This is like a younger version of the Beacon Street Girls.)

Cute story for the niece. She loves the story because the girls are a lot like her. They love to have a project and something to "surprise" others with.
