My 7 year old grandchild loved it and found it an easy read. It is a gentle humorous tale that does not date.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Borderman on Jan. 20 2003
Format: Paperback
I was amused, in an appalled kind of way, by the 2-star ratings for this classic from a couple of reviewers suffering from an advanced case of religious tunnel vision, in which they suggest that Mary Poppins is a front for paganism and satanism. P. L. Travers, one of the most accomplished and gifted women of the 20th century, was a scholar whose wide knowledge of myth and fairy tale enhanced rather than undermined her unshakeable religious beliefs. That she didn't broadcast her faith as did that tiresome convert C. S. Lewis is only to her everlasting credit. What, precisely, do the shallow readings of these intellectually challenged reviewers signify? Nix Naught Nothing. If they had read further, and deeper, they would have found, at the end of "Mary Poppins Opens the Door," writ large in capital letters: "GLORIA IN EXCELCIS DEO" which, for the unLatined, translates as "Glory to God in the Highest." This, I submit, is not the way a Pagan or a satanist would choose to end one of their books.

In Jonathan Cott's excellent 1983 book on great children's authors, "Pipers at the Gates of Dawn", Cott quotes Travers: "C. S. Lewis has a wonderful phrase to the effect that 'there is only one Creator, and we merely mix the elements he gives us.' I never use the word 'creator' or 'creative', because I know that I'm neither. I'm a sort of apprentice, perhaps."
This is a perfect example of her radiant faith and modest self view. For those who would like to know more about this brilliant woman, who died in 1996, I suggest they read "Lively Oracles", edited by Ellen Dooling Draper and Jenny Koralek (available through Amazon), a loving and fascinating tribute to the memory of one of the greatest children's authors who ever drew breath.

Mary Poppins is a spectacular book about imagination and magic. It fulfills your heart with joy once you open the first page. And it is especially a wonderful book for children because children at a young age have a special gift in their minds imagination. When you read this book you will understand every single thing Mary Poppins does and how she does it for example when Mary Poppins first appeared popping out from a rocket on Guy Fawke's Day. I highly recommend this book to adults and children all over the world because you can build up your vocabulary so you can read and write and be creative with your own mind. I personally like the book because it gets more and more interesting as you read and it makes the reader want to go on to the next chapter and so on. It will also make you read faster. My absolute favorite part was when it was Mary Poppin's birthday and Jane and Michael (the two children Mary Poppins took care of) were sitting in a circus with seals and tigers all over. I also, enjoyed the part where Mary Poppins had a compass and while the children were falling to sleep in their dreams (that was actually real life) they saw themselves with Mary Poppins in the North Pole talking to a polar bear.

whether you're a child, a child at heart, or someone who wants to re-discover your childhood, read these Mary Poppins books! This is the first in P.L. Travers' Mary Poppins series. And no, Mary if not practically perfect, she is perfectly perfect! There are too many things that I love about these books to list them all: the comedy, the quotable quotes, the lessons to learn, the fabulous writing style. I'm so glad I discovered these great books; I urge everyone else to too at every chance I get! :)

Have you ever seen a stranger fly up a staircase, talk to animals, or put a star in the sky? Well, Marry Poppins can! This is one of the best fantasy books I've ever read and it's way better than the movie. Marry Poppins is about a family who live in a house made to look like a ship. When the family needs a nannie to take care of the children, Marry comes to fill the position. I really liked it when Jane, the oldest child, had a dream about going to the zoo with her bother Michael at night and how every thing there was upside down. People where inside the cages and the animals were watching and running around. It seemed to be Marry Poppins birthday and some lord snake was giving her a present, his shedded skin. The weird part about it is that Michael had the same dream and Marry the next morning was wearing a new snake skin belt. To find out more read the book. I did and I really liked it!
Marry is a strange and mysterious woman who comes and goes when the wind changes. The characters had lots of attitude. Michael and Jane were the kids and John and Barbara were the twin babies. There was
the street painter who can jump into his own paintings. Also, there are the Mom and Dad who don't have a clue that Marry is a magical woman.

This was an awesome and creative book. It had lots of adventure and excitement. Like when Marry takes her compass, says a direction, and instantly she's there! I really liked it because I like fantasy books. Marry Poppins was definitely a page turner with great suspense because Marry Poppins can only stay a little while, but why?
