Rufus M., Eleanor Estes


This is an adorable old-fashioned book. The prof in my Public Library class read the first chapter aloud to us. In this chapter, Rufus M. learns to print his name in order to get a library card, which involves several trips to and from his house, riding on a scooter, and much washing of hands. Rufus lives in an 1940’s small New England village, and there are several books about his family, including the Newberry Award-winning “Ginger Pye.”

In the style of “Little House” and “Five Little Peppers” and other oldies-but-goodies, this would be a lovely bedtime read-aloud story, with chapters that might take ten minutes or so to read.
