191. “Oh, Were they Ever Happy!” by Peter Spier


I am taking a little risk with this book, as I don’t want to put wrong ideas in your children’s heads. Although the real culprit should be the writer, right?

Mom and Dad Noonan decided to paint the outside of the house. Since they had some errands to do earlier, they left their children with the sitter, who… didn’t show up.  What should the children do alone in the house? Well, they found a lot of paint in the garage and in the basement, so why not to help the parents get the painting started? Actually, the whole job had been done before the parents came back. You just have to imagine how stunning the house looked in  purple, green, red, blue and other colors of the rainbow. The parents must have been happy!  “Oh, were they ever happy!”

A very bright and certainly colorful story. Light and entertaining. But if you choose to read it to your children, I suggest you get rid of all the paint leftover in your house. you know, just in case your children want to make YOU  “Ever Happy”.
