Blast from the Bobbsey Past

You can ask my parents. As a child, I was obsessed with the Bobbsey Twins. I read every book the library had, then requested my own copies for every birthday and Christmas for years. I read each volume multiple times, always careful not to bend or smudge any pages. Bobbsey Twins books were treasured items of my childhood, indeed. Which is why, when I noticed that they had re-released the first 12 books of the series under new covers, I jumped at the chance to pass on the Bobbsey Twins love to my own kids. To my pleasant surprise, they ask to read a few more chapters every night and seem to be really enjoying the first book.

Are we growing another
Bobbsey Twins fan?

I guess time will tell...


  1. I remember those books! They're wonderful...I should introduce them to my daughter as well.

  2. I love the Bobbsey Twins as well! (I hadn't thought about them in years though...until reading your post!)


I love to hear what you think!
