I had a bad August. A very bad August. As bad as pickle juice on a cookie. I hope your August was better. I really do. This is the start of a very dear book about Eleanor whose first babysitter Bibi is moving away to Florida to care for her sick father. Nothing is going to be the same and things that used to make Eleanor happy remind her of Bibi. But as August rolls on Eleanor begins to realize that even though things have changed, there are still new things to enjoy. I found myself just sighing with pleasure as I read this book,remembering feeling this way when I was a little girl too.
