While most books in the 1001 childrens books series are timeless, The Bobbsey Twins is definitly of a time. Unfortunately this time is one of segregation and racism.For example: The twins sort their dolls- the best doll had blond hair and blue eyes, the worst doll is black and dirty and named jujubee and segregated from the other white dolls wth a piece of cardboard.

The bobbseys also have live in black help, who are characterized as full of childlike wonder.The children do have some good ole fashioned fun but there are other stories that manage to capture that old time simple wonder without the social baggage.
