Five Little Peppers and How They Grew Audiobook CD Set
Listen to a sample chapter of Five Little Peppers and How They Grew Audiobook!
The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew tells the story the Pepper family, Mamsie (the widowed mother), and children Ben, Polly, Joel, Davie, and Phronsie as they live, learn, and play in their “little brown house”. They are poor, and Mamsie and the children must work constantly to keep the wolf from the door but they do it with gaiety and spirit in abundance. The Peppers make due with whatever they have and the elder children try to make things special for the younger. Though tragedies often befall them, they bear it as best they are able and make the most of the good in life.
When Phronsie is kidnapped by an organ grinder, she is rescued by young Jasper King and his dog Prince, both of whom soon become fast friends with the Peppers. The family so charms Jasper and his father that soon they invite the family to live with them. Mr. King makes Mrs. Pepper his housekeeper and does everything in his power to entertain and educate the children. Though the Kings surround the Pepper children with luxury, the values of hard work, humility, and togetherness are still firmly enforced by their mother. Though they live with an upper-class father and son, the older children are aware they’ll someday work for their livings. The stories of the Pepper family have delighted children for generations!
