This Betty MacDonald series from the 1980’s (why did I think it was older?) is still appealing to readers today. The answer-to-every-parents’-prayer Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle is consulted by anxious mothers (the moms pursue the majority of the child-rearing solutions rather than the fathers who come off as particularly harsh in some of the chapters. Oh, well…) whenever their child will not behave. Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle has a cure for every child who will not behave: the child who won’t pick up toys, the slow-eater, the never-wants-to-go-to-bedder, the scaredy-cat, the child who won’t share, etc.. Also available in audio and republished with colorful covers, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle is the original Nanny solution. I wish she lived in New York!
