Journey from Peppermint StreetLd childWhere the sun went down would be the marsh and the "Monastery In The Marsh "in the marsh the frogs and the storks and the cranes and the herons and two people walking and nobody laughing and everything strange lovely wonderful To the end of all our days It sounded like a prayer it was as lovely as a litany This gentle coming of age story still resonates with me than 40 years after I first read it Siebren goes with his grandfather on a great adventure walking across the marshes to visit Aunt Hinka Siebren has never left his small village to visit Aunt Hinka Siebren has never left his small village "we feel his excitement and apprehension as he "feel his excitement and apprehension as he the last house on the outskirts of the townFilled with wonder fear and courage Journey from Peppermint Street is a delightful book for younger readers I enjoyed the story and the childish perspective from which it was told Siebren thinks like a nine year old and as he travels away from home for the first time he is learning to understand the world with each passing experience I loved the winsome spirit of his Aunt Hinka and Uncle Siebren They are the ind of grown ups that I want to be Two reasons for a four star review rather than five First the writing dragged on at times It was definitely the author s choice and the story was well written but I have never had the patience for that type of writing Second The book talked a lot about being a handball of Satan and of miracles and even spoke of church and the Bible but did not mention God once That troubles me in a book that I would pass on to children I don t want them to buy into the idea that we can have all of those other things and live a good life while overlooking God A curious book this contains a lot of interior reflection on the part of Siebren the young protagonist We read his thoughts and his rational process as he sorts out puzzles in his head His endearing little boy inside comes through in his interactions with some of the adults mainly but not exclusively the women The story is slow moving with occasional bursts of excitement It addresses the concept of reality and fantasy rumors fears miracles and Set near the author s hometown it gives a vivid description of a time past before electricity and telephones connected distant or even not so distant places The action takes place in the early 1900s so this is well after the Netherlands of Hans Brinker but much closer to that of Hilda van Stockum s A Day on Skates The Story of a Dutch Picnic It is interesting to see how the times change or don t change T was alive with ten hundred thousand fireflies darting in the night and frogs booming at them But Grandpa said it was dangerous too they had to eep on the pa.

FOR US A VERY LONG TIME 
us a very long time "I Finally Got Around To " finally got around to it It takes place in the early 1900 s in Holland It is the story of a 10 year old boy who has never left his home village as he travels inland with his grandfather to visit his great auntsWhile the book won several awards including a Newberry I am mixed about how good it is The descriptions of Dutch life are very fascinating However the internal states of the boy take away from the story He is far too maudlin about too many things I don t think we see the boy ua boy but as an adult would have us think a boy thinks This is an excellent choice to read aloud to children ages 4 to 9 Each event that happens is small but with significance to the young boy and also to the young reader listener Traveling along with Siebren and his grandfather on the path to his aunt s house we get so completely caught up in his joy about such things as finding and getting to eep a ball that the extremely dramatic magical ending is an exultant joy I am not spoiling it to tell you this because I ve left out all details and you will very likely have forgotten it in the minutiae of the departure the lumber pile the tea shop etc I read this almost 20 years ago when I first started as a children s librarian although long after it was originally published I liked it better than The Wheel on the School but certainly both are masterpieces of sensitivity to the child like wonder in small things and the careful attention children pay to the tiny things they notice If you are a parent observing your own child as she or he is amazed by the world around him or her I believe you both will enjoy reading this together I don t have the words So much wisdom insight are woven into this tale of a certain special child s uniue set of adventures some small some dramatic some mundane some Philosophical over the course of an easily countable number of hours in a setting most of us are completely unfamiliar with at the beginning but that will feel like a second home by the end DeJong has outdone himself "I Appreciated It Even The Second TimeA Writer Would Appreciate "appreciated it even the second timeA writer would appreciate even as the author is a master of language characterization pacing etcA better review is Erica s believe it to be a sort of touchstone book If you like it too we probably have a lot congruity in our taste in books and vice versa Check it out on openlibrary especially if you want a good book to read aloud to your about 7 10 year Siebren could hardly believe it here he was walking with his grandfather all the way to Aunt Hinka's in the dark too Now he and Grandpa had reached the marsh
