Reviews for Main Street #2: Needle and Thread (2 vol.)
RatingComments
5Without giving away specific details of the stories, I can tell you that this series is about hope and understanding, trials and triumphs, and learning how to fit in when the world has been tragically turned upside down. These books cover many of the issues that face our children today, and Ann M. Martin leaves no stone unturned. Even if there were no story to tell, Martin's descriptions of the places and people are phenomenal. The best part of these books, in my opinion, are the moments when "you" are walking through town and past the row houses, getting glimpses of how people behave behind closed doors. It's like holding a snow globe, and imagining the lives of the people inside of it. I highly recommend these stories for any child or adult. Flora and Ruby are characters not soon forgotten. The social issues that they and their friends face can open up discussions with your own children.
