First part of book a little strange..
on May 14, 2014
Quote from the first pages of the book
" When you get lost in the camping store, and you call out, MOMMY, your mommy could say, "Its all right, I'm coming to find you!" but she doesn't."
next page ...
"She calls your name, and you follow the sound of her voice"
"When you find her, you get a big hug, after you promisee not to wander off again."
Well, this just turned me right off, right away. Having "lost" a child in a store, (even if they are right behind you) is a pretty terrifying thing for both parent and child. You aren't worrying about who is calling , mom or child, you just want that child there. This book was given to my daughter and she also commented on this, without me mentioning it.
I liked the rest of the book: the premise is self reliance. Just didn't like the opening.
Not a favorite book. I know I go against the grain of the other reviews, and bought the book on this fact, but we have so many other great children's books out there. (imho, and its just my own opinion,for what it is worth.)
