Reviews - What do customers think about Who Moved My Cheese? For Kids?
I was surprised when 4 & 5 year olds enjoyed this book. Mar 8, 2010
I read this book to some of the 4 and 5 year-olds in the preschool classroom I am currently working at and I was surprised at how much some of them enjoyed it. Some of the children were begging me to read it over and over and over. The book is quite long compared to other books for children this age range so I was very surprised when it kept their attention. I don't think that the message of the book is very understandable for most children of this age, but they enjoy the pictures and predicting what will happen next in the story. One of the kids in my class even borrowed this one because he wanted to share it with his grandma.
Purchased for my grandson Sep 28, 2009
I purchased this book for my grandson and was not overly impressed I don't think it delivered the message all the way.
Thanks Dec 29, 2008
This has been such a helpful book, I am glad that this was put together, I feel fortunate that there is a help out there
Easy way to read this book Jun 19, 2008
This book is very much like the adult version only with pictures. It would be good for later elementary ages through probably middle school. Being a teacher of lower elementary, I enjoyed it myself!
Teaching Children the power of choices May 15, 2008
I love this book. It is a wonderful book to spark family conversations about the power of change. The illustrations are terrific and allow small children to follow along easily. We read this book often and talk about change and the benefits of trying new things. Extremly relevant and well done.
