50 Books Real Simple Readers Love
The Bobbsey Twins series had me hooked from the beginning. Not a twin myself, I enjoyed their escapades. I think I read all of their books. At the same time I was reading biographies of early presidents, explorers, etc. Today I still like good nonfiction, historical fiction, and fluff books about people growing up in the ’40s and ’50s, like the Bobbsey twins did. —Suzilee Susu Yonce Draper
I read The Bobbsey Twins series in the fourth grade and kept on going from there. —Kathi Dillon Crocco
The Bobbsey Twins, given to me for Christmas when I was 7 years old. I have never been the same. —Karen Jensen Kerr
