    Edited to addThe list of books recommended by Helen Dore Boylton and her collaborator that I mention at the end of this review is now complete I hope people will look at it because it turned out to be far work than I expected so I want it to be appreciated There are now lots late 1940s picture books with 0 ratings listed on goodreads than there were before Not sure if that's a good thing or not However I also had to create entries and found images for some books that actually look potentially interesting An enjoyable entry in the series even though it's probably the one with the least amount of nursing content as it's mostly about Sue's family and a neighboring girl whose unhappiness Sue tries to resolve I remember enjoying the parts about the girl Cally when I read the book as a child but for some reason I never reread it until I embarked on my first ever complete Sue Barton read a year and a half ago I am hoping to get caught up on reviewing them allA very small uibble here is that I feel Sue's intense interest in antiue furniture in one particular chapter comes out of nowhere just for the sake of PlotWhen I finished I glanced at the dedication to Margaret Ayer Cobb and for some reason decided to google that name This led me to an obituary for Margaret's daughter Jane which describes Jane as the silent coauthor of Helen Dore Boylston's books How valid this statement is I don't know but Boylston herself certainly acknowledged some contribution in a note at the beginning of Sue Barton Senoir Nurse writing I wish to extend my thanks to Jane Ayer Cobb whose criticism and knowledge of modern young conversation have been invaluableFurther poking around on google revealed that Helen and Jane collaborated on a handful of columns reviewing recently published children's books The columns were published in The Atlantic Monthly from 1946 1951 I've started reading them on microform at the library and just for fun started a list of the books the two chose to recommend which is still a work in progress

    This is darling What can I say the language of the time is rubbing off on me The title's a little misleading because Sue isn't really the neighborhood nurse here she's like the neighborhood mother Cal is a magnetic character and Sue's kids are delightful and Bill is darling too This is a little like Anne of Ingleside in a way old fashioned but somehow timeless centered on family and so so charming

    Sue is now a stay at home mom and her three children and still does some community nursing Highlights include a troubled teen named Cal who just moved into the neighborhood Tabitha's severe cut on her leg Jerry's undetected musical ability and Johhny falling in love No strict nursing tasks but still enjoyable

    35 starsAnother fun story about Sue Barton after she is married This book starts off about seven years after the last one Sue has three children now and is being a wife and mother with only some times working as a nurse But that doesn’t mean she’s not helping others She sometimes fills in for the rural nurseI liked Cal and her mother And the rest of the characters There is some excitement in the story as well as places to smile and laugh over It was fun to reread itThere are a few swear words used that can be whited outThis is not a Christian book

    Kit and Sue go to visit the hospital they trained in and Sue starts to wonder if being a stay at home mum is a waste of her nursing skills She finds herself caught up in the drama of her famous artist neighbour and her neglected daughter while her own children bring their own uniue problemsThis one was interesting because Sue is raising her kids and is not working but her medical and social skills are reuired to solve a few problems Cal likes to hang around at the Barry house and spend time with Sue and the kids and Sue is determined to help the girl repair her fractured relationship with her mother and find her a few new friends Of course Sue's interfering however well intentioned is not an instant success You could see things from the sides of Cal and MonaSue's kids are little devils Tabitha sulking and running away to invade Mona's house Jerry's tantrums and strange behaviour and Johnny's determination not to be sererated from his new friend Anne The scene where Sue is trying to show a rich neighbour the importance of stable parenting is so funny as her kids decide to create utter anarchy during the visit I was in stitches laughing My favourite part of the story was Johnny and Anne's adventures It was uite sweet to see how the pair adored each other in that innocent way that kids have before hormones wreck things The story shows different sides to Sue and Bill and helps to bring Cal and Mona closer together There may not be much action but it was really well written This was a good addition to the series

    I confess to reading this because a Sue Barton series book was featured on Awful Library Books and because I did so enjoy the candy that was the last one I read This one however shows its age terribly since Sue has found her Highest Most Important Calling as a Wife and Mother and I'm reading The Feminine Mystiue right now and boy can you see how American cultural changes led to changes in this series Still some exciting medical emergencies and Sue has a weird affection for the old fashioned kind of mask for administering ether which is totally bizarre in a series that seemed to have been focused on the new ways of nursing before The writing does shine a bit here in an unexpected way for series junk I don't know that I think this deserves the ALB treatment either there is a real reason to keep old series fiction in a community filled with casual researchers and nostalgic readers and if you don't keep it in J because its appeal is really for adults is it really reasonable to keep it in adult fiction?Edited to say Oops It was a Cherry Ames on ALB not Sue Barton but I still think it's worth a large public library like mine keeping this sort of series fiction in the children's department

    After the last two books seeming a little lackluster I was pleasantly surprised by this one While some plot points were still too easily resolved I felt like the writing and dialogue was similar to the fresh and witty banter that the first few books had I also really liked the setting for this as well as the new secondary characters that were introduced Some of the homey everyday life details that were included reminded me just a little of the Beany Malone books and I mean that in a very positive sense There is also a nice bit of commentary on raising kids and on marriage some of which still seems pretty relevant I love how Sue is portrayed at this stage of her life and I'm glad the author chose to continue the series Reading this kind of makes me long for the days of friendly rural communities and less technology where neighbors looked out for each other and kids were free to roam and play view spoileralthough that last part didn't always work out so well hide spoiler

    Woah where have the 1970s photo covers gone? This isn't what my copy looks like But I don't really care I know that some of the attitudes in this book are somewhat ahem dated with respect to the roles of men and women in bringing up children But if you have ever been the mother of three small children much of what's described here rings very true the dirt the tantrums the unanswerable uestions that come from nowhere the accidents the noise the jobs that always need doing the precious moments HDB captures this very well indeedThere is a plot in here about new neighbour Mona Stuart and her teenage daughter and it's told over a fairly tight time frame of a few weeks unusual for a Sue Barton book There is still some nursing mainly of the emergency sort although Sue has a day as relief visiting nurse but the theme of the book is about whether Sue's nursing training is wasted now that she's a motherTo work or not to work that is the uestion

    Have you ever remembered reading a book as a child but find yourself unable to remember the exact title of the book let alone the author or key points of the plot?Well this is one of those books for me I read it once as a child I think I got it at my grandmother's library and vaguely remembered it in later years I've kept searching for it every now and then but nothing ever came up Turns out I had the title wrong I thought it was Nurse in the Neighborhood Eh I was close But today I stumbled across the book by accident God bless goodreads and now am so happy I've found it Not because I remember loving it or want to read it again but it's been haunting me for uite some time now Finally my mind can restActually scratch that My mind can't rest yet There are still a couple nameless books that are haunting me Gah

    Just like with the Anne series the later books are about Sue's kids than about herself Unlike Anne though this switch doesn't seem strained as we still hear of the children's experiences through the eyes of Sue rather than through them themselves I never thought I should say it but Montgomery could have learned something from this Too bad chronology didn't allow it ; Still my least favourite of the lot thoughHonestly though the further I get into this series the less I understand why I haven't read the last 4 books in so many years No they're not nearly as good as the first 3 but neither are they nearly as bad as I remembered them I'm greatly enjoying this read through
