I've had trouble with kids being tattle-tales and bossing, so I thought it was time to dust off the old Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books. I'd forgotten how much fun these are to read and listen to. :) And it was kind of astounding, actually, to hear my older kids, when they came home from school, laugh and sigh and remember how much they love these books—even my 16YO son said, "I'm so glad you found Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle! I love those books!" Well, knock me over with a feather. Plus, don't these double as a history lesson? Teach kids what it was like to live in the pre-electronic age? Every dish is washed by hand, every kid has ample time after school to play and lounge. Idyllic, that's what. :) And, much less tattle-telling going on around here.
