"Brenda Ashford is the quintessential British nanny. Prim and proper, gentle and kind, she seems to have stepped straight out of Mary Poppins. For more than six decades Nanny Brenda swaddled, diapered, dressed, played with, sang to, cooked for, and looked after more than one hundred children. From the pampered sons and daughters of lords ensconced in their grand estates to the children of tough war evacuees in London's East End, Brenda has taught countless little ones to be happy, healthy, and thoroughly well bred"--Dust jacket flap.

I really enjoyed reading about the life of this British nanny, whose career started in 1939 (when she was trained). It even includes a few recipes; and daily schedules which give you an idea of what (and how long) her days were. She worked for 62 years! She is now 92 and still likes to bake sweet treats for "her children" when they come to visit.
