I loved these gorgeous stories when I was little and have shared them with DD. Just wondered if there if anything similar that I've forgotten or haven't yet discovered.
Message withdrawn at poster's request.
Don't know if they are similar but I enjoyed these in the same era along side Milly Molly Mandy: Bullerby children and Pippy Longstocking. I also really enjoyed revisiting them with dd.
I used to love my naughty little sister when I was young. Also all the Enid Blyton books- the Faraway Tree, The Wishing Chair... has she read any of these? How old's your DD?

Teddy Robinson and clever polly and my naughty little sister, then I also loved all the Enid blyton ones (she did some about families too, maybe one called the caravan family/children?) and there were some about a magic panda, possibly called izzie?

I was also going to suggest The Family From One Street. Loved that book when I was a child.
A bit longer but some of the Swallows and Amazon books (I'd recommend Swallowdale as a second to the original A&A book) have a similar old time feel.Possible some of the Winnie the Pooh too.As well as many of the others mentioned here!
Iggy & Me series by Jenny Valentine is a modern day take on My Naughty Little Sister.Paddington books.
