Loved this book Amazing illustrations, I read it today to a class of 3 to 5 year olds. It is a great book that works well with simple props. I used construction paper cut out drawings of the egg, hat, bucket, and wheel barrow, to help the smaller ones focus. I think this story has many concepts to explore. I am looking forward to reading it again and would recommend it as a teaching tool for exploring emotions and also nature themes.

Recommends it for: anyone wanting to reinforce cooperation and sharing for young children
Shelves: kids
This book captures perfectly the many moods of young children beginning with lovely cooperation and ingenuity to do something on their own moving through courtesy and sharing into accident, contention, separation, and quick forgiveness as something new presents itself. And all that told in the simplicity of a child's vocabulary. I think that Ms. Lewis is really brilliant here.

This book was ok, a little boring and did not really grasp my students' attention.
