Talking about Mary Poppins, I’m so excited for the new Mary Poppins movie starring Emily Blunt in “Mary Poppins Returns” this December. She definitely has huge shoes to fill as Julie Andrews played the beloved character before her. My children have really enjoyed the original Disney movie and this will be a great way for a new generation of children to learn about Mary Poppins.
