All six times I picked "Helen's Babies" by John Habberton. written in 1875. It was about a young man, of a well-to-do family, who spends 2 weeks looking after his small nephews who turn out to be impish and cause him all kinds of embarrasment. Interestingly, I read, much later, that this book was popular in England and the Brits were surprised that Americans were civilized enough to have afternoon tea and such.
Other books, "Little Women", The Wizard of Oz", and Seventeenth Summer"
