When asked about her childhood, she told how she was an only child, growing up on a farm. She would coax her Mother to tell her stories etc. Mrs. Cleary said that after a while, their town had a library, one of her favorite books was 'Dandelion Cottage', written by Carroll Watson Rankin. Mrs. Cleary lived to be near 100, so to be able to read the very same book she loved as a girl is special indeed!
It is a story about four young girls, who were allowed to use an empty, rundown cottage at the back of a church for a playhouse. It is a delightful story. I went over to amazon and found Kindle is offering it for FREE! It only takes about 2 hours to read and I recommend it highly. I just finished it yesterday....the print could be spaced not so close together, but the story is 5 stars!
