    1. Maybe I was just in a particularly sappy or Christmassy mood today when I finished this book, but I think this is probably the best in the series so far. I think it's got to the stage where all of the characters and families are developed enough that I'm starting to really care about them. I realise that Camden Falls is totally idealised, with their cute Christmas celebrations and how close-knit the community is, but it makes me wistful for times when communities were like this. I think this wou [...]

    2. Reviewed by Marta Morrison for TeensReadTooI loved this book. I love this series. It is a reminder of the simple yet exciting stories that I read when I was a girl. Flora and Ruby are orphaned when their parents died a year ago. They went to Camden Falls to live with their grandmother, Min. The books are about their adjustment to living there. I enjoyed 'TIS THE SEASON immensely because it was about Christmas. The traditions of a small town were fascinating and the kindness for others was overwh [...]

    3. I really love this series. When I first picked it up, I thought it would be just a fun read, what I call "fluff" but it is actually anything but. Ann Martin's characters are diverse - different races, religions, ages, levels of socioeconomic status and several suffer from various ailments and disabilities, but this diversity is not at the center of the plot or conflict; just like in everyday life, her characters are individual and unique. She also tackles difficult subjects, like alcoholism and [...]

    4. The book main street: tis the season by ann m martin was a caring book. I really liked this book because Mae Sherman wanted presents for christmas and she wanted santa to bring the presents. Olivia was listening to mae's presents, flora,olivia, and ruby bought and made presents for the Sherman's because they don't have enough money. When the group of friends came the Sherman's house and old mr willet was santa claus. Mae was so excited when santa came, she got a lot of presents. It was caring th [...]

    5. The Main Street series by Ann M. Martin is a series I would recomend to anyone! It is one of my most favorite series that I have ever read! It is a story of 2 girls journey as they begin to live with their Grandma in Camden Falls. They meet new friends, work at their grandmas store and help others in need as they go to their first year of school in Camden Falls and fun summers!!! I give this book, author, and series 5 stars!

    6. I just finished this book. It is the last one of the series that I have :(. I have no sisters, but a cousin who is pretty much just the same. The age difference to my cousin and I and Flora and Ruby are about the same, and Min is exactly as energetic and fun as our grandmother! I think that the fact that they are about the same age as my cousin and I really adds to the interest because they act sort of like us and relate to us in some ways.

    7. Tis the Season In this Main Street book, Flora and Ruby spend their first Christmas without their parents in Camden Falls. They learn the Camden Falls Christmas Tradition, while still struggling without their parents. The good thing is the 2 girls have good friends and a kind grandmother. Read this book and see what Christmas was like in Camden Falls.

    8. The Baby Sitters were decent and I read them all, but I can tell that Martin has really grown as an author in this series. I am really enjoying them. Martin addresses tough topics for kids with sensitivity.

    9. I read this book a few years ago and I really enjoyed it. It delves into some serious topics for a kid's book in a really good way yet kids can enjoy it. Just to note it talks about Santa if you get my drift. ( Not for young kids.)

    10. This is a cute but ultimately forgettable installment in a relatively good series for kids. The series itself is good for kids around the ages of 8-12. Far under my level now, but it was enjoyable once upon a time.

    11. Flora and Ruby Northrop are worried about spending their first Christmas without their parents but people around them are helpful and tactfully bring them out of their worries. I especially liked the part where Olivia's parents' talents are shared. I am excited to read the next part of the series.

    12. These are light, easy reads. I feel like I know the town and characters well. I'm glad Nikki's father has gone away and hope Olivia's family doesn't move.

    13. This one is my favourite of all the main street books I've read it tells what the meaning of a family is it was just a great book

    14. I thought this was a really good book. Every time I read one of these books in this series I never want it to end!!

    15. I really enjoyed this book. It was my favorite of the series so far. I love the way that it makes you feel like you are in the story, and feeling the characters feelings. I could hardly put it down. I loved it!

    16. Don't let the things from the past bother you now.I like when the 4 girls gather in olivia's room and talk about the past year and what happend then.
