Mary Poppins Does Not Sing!

In an effort to regain my pleasure for reading, I picked up Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers from my children's bookshelves. I adore this movie and it have been mesmerized by it since childhood. "A spoonful of sugar..." and the other songs of the movie/play/musical do not exist in the books. Mary Poppins herself does not sing! She isn't even a very delightful person, the Mary Poppins in the book is not Julie Andrews. However, there is delight to be had in reading Mary Poppins and the other Mary Poppins books, there is just not one single, solitary literature study guide for the books. Why!?! Some things are just frustrating, aggravating...and senseless! Okay, back to the regular scheduled programming.

I just spent the past hour looking for a study guide, notebooking stuff, lapbooking anything!

Really weird. Not sure why.

Off to do Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and then Mary Poppins.
