The Busy Life of Ernestine Buckmeister

The Busy Life of Ernestine Buckmeister - Linda Ravin Lodding, Suzanne Beaky Ernestine Buckmeister is a busy little girl. On Mondays she learned to sculpt with clay. On Tuesday she had water ballet lessons. On Wednesdays she had knitting lessons. On Thursdays she took tuba lessons. On Fridays she had yodeling lessons. On Saturdays she studied karate. On Sundays she learned yoga.Ernestine’s neighbor, Hugo, did not go to lessons. He played every day. Ernestine longed to play with her neighbor, but she did not have time. One day, Ernestine decided to schedule some time for herself; she and her nanny stopped and played. It was delightful for them both.A story that many children and parents would love to hear, might need to hear, with fun exaggerated illustrations and text. “One afternoon Hugo shouted, ‘Look out!’ as his ball sailed over the fence and landed in Ernestine’s tuba. WHOMP!Ernestine bounced the ball to Nanny and squealed, ‘Bounce it back!’‘Oh dear,’ said Nanny. ‘It’s time for tuba.’Ernestine sighed and passed the ball back to Hugo.”
