Reviews - What do customers think about They Didn't Use Their Heads?
A learning tool through adulthood. Helps mold character. Apr 30, 2003
LOVE IT - LOVE IT - LOVE IT!!!! This book has it all. This book teaches consequence as well as morality; it then shows an alternate solution to a bad/or thoughtless decision. It does all of these things in a very child friendly manner in a way that children can relate to and understand very easily.
Since I grew up reading this book, I know first hand that it helped mold the person I am today. I still had my original hard cover copy that my mom used to read us, until I recently lost it in a move. I was heartbroken, I wanted my future children to benefit from this book like I did.
I was estatic when I found it on this site. I not only bought 2 for myself to save for when I have kids but I buy one for any baby shower attend. I think this book is a must have for any child! I know my children will benefit from this book.
Ageless and Timeless Nov 17, 2000
The number of stars this book deserves is as countless! "They Didn't Use Their Heads" was first published in 1960, and my mother gave it to me as a gift in 1964, when I was seven years old. Throughout the years, I've often reflected on this book--pondering its simple, yet profound, lessons and wondering if I'd ever find it again. Well, in the *infinite* wisdom of the publisher, it's back! The true pricelessness of this beautifully illustrated book is that it speaks to children of *all* ages: Its lessons will remain with you always. This book is a treasure and should be hardbound and displayed proudly on your bookcase among your other prized literature. Better yet, place it conspicuously on your coffee table for visitors to read: People are never too young nor too old to learn... and to grow... and, well, maybe even to "use their heads"...
