    It s hard to think of this book as vintage when I know I read it as a child I m vintage too apparently but then I saw the original publication date being somewhere around 1950, so I ll shelve it there now without a quibble, though the story has a tendency to feel so timeless that you could almost set it today Almost OK, so we have a few moments that would be considered a little dicey in the political correctness realm, but given the context of the time written I will look past that entirely It s hard to think of this book as vintage when I know I read it as a child I m vintage too apparently but then I saw the original publication date being somewhere around 1950, so I ll shelve it there now without a quibble, though the story has a tendency to feel so timeless that you could almost set it today Almost OK, so we have a few moments that would be considered a little dicey in the political correctness realm, but given the context of the time written I will look past that entirely and focus on what was a delightful story about a girl s first year at summer camp, and the things she learns there I was a little surprised at the depth of the problems that the girls bring with them to camp This honestly pleased me immensely, because it s a nice reminder that not every book of the past is a shallow vapid look at what the times could have been in a very Leave it to Beaver sort of mindset Kids still feel the pain of divorce, have to strive to be noticed, and feel like they re not fitting in then as now And this book explored those things very nicely without dwelling on it to the point of becoming a book about issues, and not about kids.I liked Maggie, and her way of putting her best effort into things I could sympathize with her plight and liked the way that reading this felt so familiar to me, even though I don t remember reading it the first time though I m sure I did Overall, this is a good book and if you like tales about summer camp then this is one to dig around for I m glad I still had my copy of this

    I read this when I was about 10 I so identified with Maggie, I ve remembered it all my life I always intended to name a daughter Margaret so I could call her Maggie I m sure this book is the reason Alas, I lost the book years ago and I could never get my husband to agree to the name Maggie, so I have a Katie instead Even so, I would like to find this book and read it again.

    This was my very favorite book growing up It will always hold a special place in my heart Having attended summer camp when I was a kid and again working there as a young adult, camp also holds a special spot with me, as it did with Maggie in the end I read this book even still when I m having a really bad day and need a little pick me up.

    I read this book over and over again when I was between 9 and 11 years old I wanted to BE Maggie I need to read it again now that I m an adult I fell in love with this book Even looking at the cover makes me feel nostalgic for summer camp And to think that I found it accidentally at a yard sale way back when..

    This was one of my favorite books when I was young and I found it on eBay and wanted to read it again since I didn t remember the storyline at all Such a simple but sweet story, and made me think about how different childhoods are today compared to the fifties and sixties I loved going back in time and reading a childhood favorite during quarantine.

    Ran across a vintage copy while cruising Etsy today and all kinds of happy childhood memories came flooding in I read it when I was about 7 years old, in the 70s maybe Maggie inspired my later love of piloting a canoe.

    I read this the first time when I was nine or 10, decades ago, I got it through Scholastic books at school, if I remember correctly I loved it Read it many times The last time I saw my copy, it got lost in one of my moves, it was very worn and tattered Well loved in other words Would love to find another copy.

    This was the book that started my reading career I was 9 years old and after reading this book, I couldn t stop going to the library and borrowingbooks I loved reading this and wish I would have kept a copy of it Brings me back to my childhood days.
