I don't remember particulars, but I was in the library in Chester, PA and there were more adults at the storytime then I expected in the early 90's. I grabbed a copy of this book and everyone seemed to enjoy it.
The pictures are gorgeous. Monica Edinger had some good points about the book. However, although the story might be a little didactic, I enjoy sharing it and I don't get tired of reading it. The kind daughter who feeds the hungry, takes time to talk, and loves and talks to the little garden snake is a wonderful role model for us. We have a big book at the Grand Rapids Public Library. I like to use it for first and second grade visits and also multi-generational audiences.
