really liked it
bookshelves: read-to-my-kids, didn-t-finish

This was a fine little book, but I have to say I expected a little more from it. We did find some classics that I had always wanted to make sure my children were familiar with: The Little Red Hen, The Boy Who Cried 'Wolf.' Our favorite was the short story of the two children who each had a "please" living in their mouth, one of the children let it out to get air often, the other did not. Very cute.

I'm surprised we never finished it, I place that blame squarely on my shoulders, since I maxed out our library renewals on it before we could finish the last few. Silly Mommy. I guess I'll wrap up and say that though it isn't one I would seek out to own, as I thought it surely would be, we will probably pick it up again when the littles here need a reacquaintance with honesty, hard work, and good manners.
