Kids say (1):

Kids who aren't ready to read the classic novel or lack the patience to have it read to them will enjoy this spare, easy-to-grasp picture book that captures the essence of the magical nanny. This accessible Mary Poppins offers a taste of the original's language and attitude, which could create interest in the novel and its sequels, and is perfectly timed in advance of the live-action film sequel, Mary Poppins Returns.

Genevieve Gobout's beautiful illustrations are loaded with charm and have a welcome retro/classic feel, making this book seem like a keepsake as well as an enchanting nighttime read.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
