Reviews - What do customers think about The Littlest Pair?
I go to Kindergarden & my favorite book is The Littlest Pair Dec 11, 2002
My name is Elizabeth, and I go to Kindergarden. I wrote this book report for school. My favorite author is Sylvia Rouss because she is a teacher, & she wrote The Littlest Pair. The setting is on Noah's Ark, and the characters are Noah, two termites, and the other animals. There was a flood in the world, and all the animals hated the termites until the termites helped them. The book makes you realize that everybody is important, and my favorite part is when Noah said, 'To God, we all matter!"
Also recommended: I also liked Charlotte's Web, Love, and Help Me Be Good.
Delightful and Full of Meaning Jan 26, 2002
"The Littlest Pair" - from the Jerusalem Post by Leslie Cohen Written in rhymed couplets, The Littlest Pair will delight the ears of young children, while its friendly-looking animal characters will appeal to their eyes. Although meant for pre-school children, it delivers a sophisticated message...against stereotyping, and acting with prejudice towards "the other." Rouss creates an all-too-human situation in which the animals refuse to accept a pair of termites as passengers on Noah's ark. Their fear turns them into an angry mob. But, much to their surprise, the termites devise a scheme to save them when the storm makes the ark lunge perilously from side to side. The apologies at the end conclude with the significant admonition by Noah: "It's important to accept each other's ways. We're all God's creatures and to God, we all matter." Its universal moral makes this book suitable for children of all ages and faiths.
