Oh my gosh, I can't even tell you how much I adored this book. It was the perfect blend of Downton Abbey and Mary Poppins with a bunch of fascinating data points on parenting norms, family structure, class, nutrition, homemaking, and British history. And I haven't even gotten to the fabulous voice of the crotchety-but-somehow-loving British uber-nanny. Seriously, you need to read this one.
