Sam is a child who enjoys the small wonders of his day with a VERY BIG reaction. If I knew Sam personally, I would avoid this child at all cost. While I appreciate taking time to cloud watch or smell the roses, I feel those things do not require a deafening response of joy or sorrow.

This was a strange book. I did not hate it but i did not really like it either. I am not sure how I would use this book in the classroom other than if I needed something "ironic", but that would still be a maybe.

There is a great message that really gets missed because of the absurdity of Sam being loud over everything...and at times inappropriately. I would not recommend this book.
