Reviews - What do customers think about Sassafras?
Sassafras leads the way to higher self esteem Mar 15, 2000
Sassafras is a young skunk who feels different, unliked, and embarrassed for the fact that he sometimes STINKS. He learns that every living creature has something about him or her that is different, but "different" can also mean unique and wonderful. With the help of friends, family, and others with problems of their own, he learns that the "stink" is what makes him special, even heroic. All kids are special. They just need to be told. Sassafras is funny and fun and teaches us all a very important lesson. Acceptance.
Wonderful read! Dec 9, 1999
Terrific little book for your primary grade reader. The illustrations are warm, and the skunk is adorable. A great complement to this book is "Why Can't I Spray Today?" by Francine Poppo Rich, which is a beautifully written and illustrated children's book for the younger reader (ages 2-5).
