Reviews - What do customers think about Learning About Life?
tool for reading and educational discussion Aug 6, 2006
Learning About Life was my seven-year-old daughter's pick for a bedtime story this week, even though she had already read it before, and she reads it by herself now. As the father of three children in primary grades, it was good to have this book as a transition between simple children's books and chapter books. With the simple books, the story ends just as children are starting, and with chapter books, they think they'll never end.
The themes addressed are: wanting to please, friendship, gaining approval, different perspectives, how misunderstandings can lead to sadness, and how that sadness can be overcome by serendipity. The owner wants to do the best for the dog, and the dog wants to do the best for the owner. It helps us appreciate the gap between humans and animals, and how we can get along through unconditional love. The mix of themes and perspectives is unique. Learning About Life is a good opener for age-appropriate, fresh discussion between adults and children, whether those adults are parents or teachers.

This book is great. My daughters love it and ask for me to read over and over. It keeps their attention while teaching them in the process which we consider the best type of book. A definite "must-read".
What fun! Jul 1, 2005
What fun and joy in this little classic! Tells a little lesson on learning to be good after doing so many bad things! There is no age limit on this book. My grandchildren loved it so much it went to bed with them. The artwork is spectacular! Hope there is a sequel in the works!
