Customer Reviews of Mary Poppins From a to Z

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun and enjoyable. Bought this for our 5 year-old twin girls who love Mary Poppins. They enjoy having one letter per night read to them before bed. The stories are whimsical and the words can get a little Dr. Seuss-like with respect to tongue-twisting sentences.

Editorial Reviews

Fans of the famous umbrella-toting nanny will welcome the return of Mary Poppins from A to Z by P.L. Travers, illus. by Mary Shepard, first published in 1962. From "A is for Annabel... out for an Airing, on Mary Poppins' Arm," to "Z is for Zodiac" on a brightly lit New Year's Eve night ("All the neighbors are full of song and Zest"), the book brims with humor and charming scenes of the Banks children at play.
