    I read Five Children and It with the Women’s Classic Literature Enthusiasts group and enjoyed it immensely If you like Mrs Piggle Wiggle and its series' mates by Betty MacDonald you will like Five Children and It The ideal child reader of this book is between second and fifth grade with a fondness for historical fiction or British classics For comparison this is substantially easier reading then CS Lewis’ fiction The ideal adult reader is anyone who enjoys classic children’s novels andor Edwardian literatureFive Children and It was published in 1902 and is the first novel in Nesbit’s Psammead trilogy which consists of Five Children and It The Phoenix and the Carpet 1904 and The Story of the Amulet1906 In Five Children and It a group of siblings Anthea Robert Cyril Jane and a baby who is referred to as the Lamb find the Psammead in a sand quarry near their home in the English countryside The Psammead is a sand fairy able to grant wishes This classic takes us to Edwardian England where horses and buggies were the most common form of transportation and servants looked after the childrenIf you are spoiler averse you may want to stop reading furtherThe most successful aspects of Five Children and It were the world building the authentic relationships between and amongst the children and Nesbit's writing style I could relate to the children and their emotions They were described and interacted in a way that fit their ages and I found them to be differentiated in age appropriate manners Nesbit’s writing style struck just the right tone for me between communicating a moral and having fun The morals weren’t overblown or eye rolling The vocabulary didn't strike me as dumbed down for children but it also was not as flowery and ornate as Frances Hodgson Burnett's contemporaneously written works and was a style I found highly appealing For 75% of the book the adventures worked for me and my pre 6th grade self would have adored this book because it doesn't talk down to children and is sufficiently complex to appeal to adults The sexist and racist elements one chapter involves gypsies grated on me but were tolerable if Nesbit’s handling is appropriately appreciated as progressive in the context of her 1902 peers until I encountered Scalps it describes an adventure populated by “red Indians” which made me want to take a shower YMMV The last story involving the mother and stolen or magically relocated jewelry was unsuccessful for me and I am not certain why although I suspect that the mother's involvement in the story makes it less of an adventure and of a problem to be solved less charming and imaginative and dire As with the Mrs Piggle Wiggle series the chapters of Five Children and It read like a series of only lightly connected short stories some of which were successful than others It was great fun though a super quick read 6 hours perhaps? and I recommend it to anyone who reads the description and is intrigued or who is a fan of Edwardian classicsBackground on the author E Nesbit was born in Kennington Surrey in 1858 The death of her father when she was four years old and the continuing ill health of her sister meant that Nesbit had a childhood absent focused adult attention and frequent moves Her family moved across Europe in search of healthy climates for her sister only to return to England for financial reasons Growing up she lived in France Spain and Germany in addition to various locations in Great Britain Her education came from a combination of periods in local elementarygrammar schools and the occasional boarding school but predominately through reading Nesbit wanted to be known as a poet and in her teens had a poem published This gave her greater confidence to write both for adults and children but it is for her 60 children's books including those on which she collaborated with other authors she is best known She distinguished herself from other writers of her time by writing about children as they were and rewriting conventional adventure stories to present them with female characters in lead roles Her friends included HG Wells and George Bernard Shaw She also was a political activist and a follower of William Morris and she and her husband Hubert Bland were among the founders of the Fabian Society a socialist organization later affiliated to the Labour Party Nesbit was an active lecturer and prolific writer on socialism during the 1880sInteresting links and articles which may necessarily include spoilers biography
