Retro Flashback #1: "Jennifer Tomkins" by The Street People AND "Baby Island" by Carol Ryrie Brink

This was one of my favorite songs when I was in 6th grade.  Does anybody else remember it?

And this was one of my very favorite books.  I am pleased to find it available at and I think I'll buy myself a copy.  I haven't read it in forever.  Have you?

Oh, wow! I used to love the book Baby Island, too! I just checked to see, and I actually still have my copy from when I was a little girl. I think I'll pull it off my bookshelf and read it. *grin*

You are much younger than I am. Never heard of either. Glad you could find the book.

JayLeigh, you lucky girl! I never had my own copy of that book, but I did check it out from the library several times. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Patti, I don't thinks so, really. The book was written in 1937 though. Not everybody has heard of it, I've found, it isn't like Little House on the Prairie or something that famous, it seems.

No Copying!
