A friend of mine lent me this book when I was a child, but I never took the opportunity to read it. I gave it back to her and now that I am older, I decided to order it and read it. I cannot believe that I didn't read the book!

I love how these are actual little stories that a girl wrote when she was young. Her "understandings" of the Episcopalian faith bring a smile to my face. Ah, such innocence as a child.

If you are looking for a very short read that is a pick-me-up, choose this book. I think everyone can find humor in her writings, but the more familiar you are with the Episcopal church (or others akin to it) the more enjoyable you may find this book.

Darling collection by an eleven year old girl in the early 1900s. I now have two, one for me and one I lend to friends.
Love this little book of a young girl's impression of religious practices. Seems it maybe some adults' impressions also. Have given it as gifts to many of my friends to remind them of the human, humorous nature of our Lord.
