Are you all super excited for the new Mary Poppins Movie ? I sure am and I am trying to figure out a way to go see it. ( with baby and all a bit difficult these days lol ). Anyways, I was so excited when I saw this beautiful new edition, that I am about to introduce to you. My two older girls have watched the old movie of course, and read some of the stories as well, and now they are thrilled that they can share the story with their new baby sister. I think this classic belongs into everyone’s library, big or small !
Okay here is what my daughter thought about the book 😉
Mary Poppins is a wonderful story, shortened into a picture book. This book tells the story of the magical Nanny, who arrives in the night by an umbrella and takes the children Jane, Michael and the twins on many adventures. Some of her whimsical adventures are: going to the zoo at night and hanging stars in the sky on ladders.
This picture book has very pretty illustrations. I can clearly see the expressions of the characters and Mary Poppins does “ look as neat as a pin”, with her heeled boots and lacy apron.
Mary Poppins is one of my favorite stories to read and this book got me really excited and I couldn’t wait to read this tale as a picture book version. I am excited to share this picture book with my younger sisters to read.
I really like the technique the illustrator uses to create the artistic pictures and you can really see when and where the story takes place.
This version did a wonderful job of recapturing the whimsical and fun story of Mary Poppins, everyone’s favorite Nanny. This book is wonderful for all ages and as a read aloud !
