PERFECT STORY TIME BOOK Oct 19, 2007
MY DAUGHTER LOVES THIS BOOK. IT'S GREAT FOR STORY TIME!!! I LOVED READING THE BOOK TO HER AND ALLOWING HER TO ANTICIPATE THE NEXT ADVENTURE WAS EXCITING FOR BOTH OF US.
Excellent book! Fun for Kids and grown-ups! Sep 5, 2007
This colorful book is written to kids, but adults will learn as well. You will see yourself in at least one of the characters and laugh at your extremes. You also will hopefully come to understand the strengths of your own personality tendencies and be encouraged to work on them. Another great thing about this book is it helps you to understand those around you and to see strengths in them, rather than being annoyed with the extreme side of their tendencies. I highly recommend this book to anyone with children ages 5 and up.(though it can be read earlier, the personality traits are maybe seen better after age 5.)
Great book to help teach the importance of diversity! Jul 17, 2007
As a mother of three, I embrace the unique qualities of each of my children. This book helped my children to see the importance that diversity plays in all of our lives. We read it in the morning at the bus stop over the course of a few days. They really looked forward to the next chapter to see what was going to happen. This book was also a great conversational tool to get my children to think about and express the importance of the role each of us plays in our family.
Great book Mar 16, 2007
My 5 year old loves this book. We borrowed it from his school library and he read it all the way home from school and didn't want to get out of the car when we got home until he finished it.
