Reviews - What do customers think about Someone I Like?
someone i like Apr 8, 2008
i was so anxious to review this book and share it with my children and grandchildren. i have never been disappointed with the previous books i had ordered with the barefoot books logo on them. I was learning to truly admire thier choice of literature for children. In this particular selection, "Poems About People, Somone I Like", i have to differ with one of these selctions. the poem of "Rachel Said". why would you included that here? to imply to a child, from a child, that growing gray, or the need for babies to be born,that another must die. this is not a good seed to plant inside the mind of a child. to ask questions is one thing, to sublimely suggest is not a good message. I think we can teach our children that none of us live forever. to have them predict death is a totally different issue. Especially living in days with so much confusion about abortion and genecide. i do not believe this was a good way of approaching the issue of the death of a grandparent. i enjoyed all the other poems in this book they were excellent!! maybe this particular poem could of been included in another set of poems. i would say that this book should be carefuly reviewed and only read with an adult to explain the implications. even the title was inappropriate, a child, grandma, or granny, with that name may be offended.
