Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers

Review:

Mary Poppins - Mary Shepard, P.L. TraversIt’s been a while since I watched the iconic movie that was based on this book, but its a funny thing when something can be so familiar and yet so foreign. The feel of the book is what I remember the feel of the movie to be but the scenes are certainly different. It seems that they either took quite a bit more artistic license than we see today or they based the movie on several books in the series.

I did try really really hard to disassociate the book with the movie. It should have been easier given what I said about the scenes, but the characterization was so close to what I remember and the wonder in the midst of ordinary things. I’m definitely adding it to the list of books I need to read with my son as his reading comprehension improves.
