One of my favorite childrens' series (I know I have said this about every one I put up here, but I love them all!). Mary Poppins is the story of a magical British nanny who changes the lives of Jane and Michael banks forever. The book series is illustrated by Mary Shepard (the daughter of famed illustrated Ernest Shepard).
I am a fan of Mary Poppins so this is one book I would want in my classroom library. This book is great to read for fun because children will read about magic and grow an imagination from reading this book.
