Yes, I'm actually reviewing a children's book and yes I feel like I'm a bit too old to do that. But heck, there are people out there writing children's books and they are grown-ups so whatever.

I found this little book at Edelweiss, it was free to download and I was just browsing and thought it could be nice to read a book about Peter Pan.

The book is really cozy, the text in the book is based on two songs from the musical Peter Pan; "I'm flying" by Carolyn Leigh and Adolph Green and "Neverland"

I was absolutely thrilled to see a book, a children's picture book, of Peter Pan, using the lyrics from the musical adaptations of the play.

Betty Comden & Adolph Green's "Neverland" and Carolyn Leigh and Mark Charlap's "I'm Flying" form the essential story for Amy June Bates' delightful artwork.

This book picks one very small portion of the story to highlight and to hopefully capture the attention of children who might one day become theater-goers.

I can easily see myself reading this to som

This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 4.0 of 5

Anyone looking for the complete Peter Pan story, in abbreviated, children's book format will be disappointed. This book picks

I received this book, for free, in exchange for an honest review.

A delightful but short rendition of the tale of Peter Pan.
The story is beautifully illustrated and contains fun rhymes. My only complaints are that the story is rather short and didn't render well on my small tablet.

This story has a paragraph or two per page so is probably too advanced for children less than 4.

Nice book. I love the premise of a lyrical story, however, I thought there might be an accompanying audio CD with someone singing. The story is a little too long to read aloud to a group younger than age 5 maybe. The full page insert is a nice surprise.

The illustrations are lovely, so I wanted to really like this book. It's just that the story text didn't seem to work smoothly with the song text.

Bought this for my 3 yr old daughter who loves Peter Pan. This is a gorgeous picture book and perfect for bedtime stories at her age. Love it.

I don't know the tune to the songs in the book but it was really fun to make it up and sing the lyrics

This received a high rating as it strikes me as very useful for a particular group of children. While this abbreviated telling can't compete with the full story by Barrie it does allow a younger audience access to a satisfying preview of the story. Most of the text is taken from two songs from the musical production: "I'm Flying" and " Never Never Land." Pleasant pencil and watercolor illustrations jibe with the Disney version, though don't slavishly copy it. This would be a good introduction be ...more

Such a beautiful story. Peter Pan was one of my personal favorites growing up. It's filled with such love for others and a friendship that lasts a lifetime. The pictures are great and it's an easy enough read for many grades. This book is also filled with adventure and creativity that after reading could inspire anyone to write a great adventure of there own. I will definatley have this on my shelf and if I can make a lesson out of it I will :)

I love the illustrations. They're beautiful. However, I think that since I do not know the songs Neverland and Flying (found this out from a coworker) the book is a bit lost on me. Up to the introduction of the songs in italics I enjoyed the book since Peter Pan is one of my favorite stories. I think people familiar with the musical will really enjoy the book-- but those who are totally unfamiliar will be a bit disappointed.

I love Peter Pan and really enjoyed this picture book!

This is by far my favorite version of Peter Pan, a great way to first introduce this timeless tale to a child/ The illustrations are big, light and beautiful....and it includes the web site where you can hear the original music from the Broadway play.

Lovely illustrations and sing song text, makes this a fun introduction for young children to the classic tale of Peter Pan. I wish it had come with a musical cd to follow along with though... my singing leaves much to be desired. :)

Rounding up to 4 stars. Illustrations very pretty. The kids liked it, but don't know how many times they'll want to re-read it.
