A few weeks ago, I wrote about the Grace Harlowe book series, and I realized, after bringing in some more of these types of books, that I never really knew who the Bobbsey twins were. For some reason, I had never read these, and I do not remember the series in my children's lit courses either. So, here is the scoop on this series.
Original writers included both men and women: Lilian Garis and Howard Garis, Elizabeth Ward, and Harriet Adams, Andrew Svenson wrote from 1904-1948, and then June Dunn, Grace Grote, and Nancy Axelrad were writers from 1953-1972.
as C.S. Lewis wrote,
“No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally – and often far more – worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond.”
