- I only have a quick minute but really felt like this book deserved and needed to have more than one customer review. This story gives so much to the reader/listener no matter their age (OK so maybe 3 and under might have a hard time paying attention but you know what I mean). A fun tale about how not listening to our kids completely or asking the right questions and becoming prideful can lead to much much more. This story is also one of my favorite stories to help teach children (and remind us adults) what can and usually does happen when we say rude comments, eves drop and/or gossip. This really is a wonderful book :)
- What a delight! My professor read this book aloud to our (adult) class, and we were all on the edges of our seats. A great book to teach about predictions and how gossip (a little information is a dangerous thing)can be hurtful. Also a great book for encouraging children to read on their own to "see what happens" as well as encouraging them to begin writing. The illustrations are colorful and compliment the text.
- This was my favorite book as a kid; I would read it over and over again. The illustrations are full of funny details, and the story is great. I still like to go back and read it every once in a while, even now that I've graduated college and am technically an adult.
