Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins in Cherry Tree Lane, Mary Poppins and the House Next Door, Mary Poppins Opens the Door, Mary Poppins in the Park and Mary Poppins comes back all see Mary taking the Banks children on some extraordinary adventures and children I'm sure will want to join them for the ride.
I started reading these when I was a third grader and just last year purchased a newly published set of the four Poppins books (Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins Comes Back, Mary Poppins Opens the Door, and Mary Poppins in the Park).
