The building of the Nordell Books Group websites over time accumulated several clumps of books & movies (on Spirit of America Bookstore
& the four companion bookstore sites) that just belonged on a Children's Department Page. So here is that page, begun in mid-2011.
New content continues being added, and the page grew large so it was split in twain in May 2017.

“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”
~~ C.S. Lewis [1898-1963]

Once Upon a Time in Great Britain Travel Guide book by Melanie Wentz  "Once Upon a Time In Great Britain: A Travel Guide To the Sights and Settings of Your Favorite Children's Stories" [2002]
by Melanie Wentz

Each chapter visits the literal geographic background for classics such as "Peter Rabbit", "Paddington Bear", "Alice In Wonderland", "Kidnapped", "The Secret Garden", "The Wind In The Willows", "Mary Poppins", "Peter Pan", and the "Harry Potter" books; read about the real chocolate factory that made such an impression on the young Roald Dahl, the cozy pub where C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien introduced their friends to Narnia and hobbits, the real '100 Aker Wood' that helped A.A. Milne create "Winnie The Pooh", and the railway station where "Thomas the Tank Engine" lives.
