Perfect Mar 22, 2007
This is a wonderfully funny book to share with young girls. It's a perfect book to teach persuasion-if you're a teacher.
Great persuasive book! Dec 4, 2001
As a teacher, I am always on the lookout for a great book that demonstrates the type of writing I am teaching. In this case, EARRINGS is a wonderful example of persuasion. The little girl is trying to convince her parents that she is ready for pierced ears, but her parents (like myself) are stubborn. She uses every form of persuasion, from begging to making deals, to get her parents to relent. I use this book when introducing persuasive writing, to my fifth graders.
Earrings a wonderful tale Dec 9, 1999
My sister really enjoyed this book and we checked is out of the library so much we had to but it for Christmas. A cute tale for all little girls to read.
