Three cousins, Lily, Tess, and Rosie, live with their Aunt Lucy in a pretty blue house on Cobble Street. After school, the girls play in the attic while they wait for Aunt Lucy to come home from her colorful flower shop. One afternoon, the cousins decide to build a dollhouse that looks exactly like Aunt Lucy's shop. They make a trip to The Olde Craft Shoppe, where they find wonderful things for their dollhouse: tiny furniture and teapots. Won't Aunt Lucy be surprised when she sees what they have made! Cynthia Rylant, Newbery Award-winning author of A Fine White Dust, the Mr. Putter and Tabby books, and the Henry and Mudge series, has created a gentle chapter book that will enchant young readers. Suzanne Toren's sunny narration captures each happy moment the cousins share. Download and start listening now!

    " This is a sweet little story that my kindergartner enjoyed. It was a great one to use for her reading requirements, and she related to the girls in the story and giggled at their attempts at being match-makers. "

    " The Cobble Street Cousins make a house for Aunt Lucy that looks like her flower shop. There was an old lady who lost her bird and the three girls helped her find it and Rosie was the one that found her. I really liked that they made something for their Aunt Lucy that she really liked. "

    " Such a delightful book! When homemade miniature flower shops, exotic teas, and fountain pens work their way into a children's story, I smile. Plus, the aunt having red hair and freckles in a good way makes me happy since I have the same:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindi | 5/8/2012

    " Charming book (#2 in a series) about 3 girls having adventures. The adults are lovely and supportive, allowing the girls to do things on their own. Funny too. For beginning readers or for families who are just starting to read chapter books aloud -- these are a good transition into longer stories. "

    " In the second Cobble Street Cousins book, the girls decide to make a model of their Aunt Lucy's flower shop and have some (harmless) adventures along the way. "

    " Part of a charming series about the adventures of two cousins living with their aunt. The girls are industrious, creative and thoughtful. I highly recommend any of the Cobble Street Cousin books as beginning chapter books. "

    " I love these happy little books. I think they appeal to little girls who grow up to be adult readers like me. Readers who love domestic stories and strong relationships. This series of books by one of my favorite authors is everything I love in a book condensed to it's tiny, young-at-heart essences. "
