wonderful character building series Mar 18, 2007
My 9 yr old D. is just embarking on the Elsie journey. It is a wonderful series of character building books. I debated on whether to get the original books or the updated version. I ended up choosing the updated version. The character life lessons are still there but with a little more ease in reading them.
