While the language is simple, this delightful story within a story is compelling and fun. Early readers will enjoy the high-interest story, and the illustrations beautifully communicate aspects of the story in a visual way. This author/artist team is the same one responsible for the wonderful "Little Bear" books. If you're looking for something that celebrates childhood from the perspective of a child, this is a great start.

Criteria for great literature has always varied throughout history. However, I doubt that anyone could disagree that "No Fighting, No Biting" is a seminal work in human relations.

A week ago my boyfriend and I were on the verge of breaking up. We had become accustomed to using our canines instead of our consonants to resolve disagreements.

That's when my roommate intervened. She left a level 2 "reading-with-help" edition of the novel in my sleeping quarters.

After my beau and I studied the work in its entirety, we each had a profound change of heart. Then a miracle happened... we stopped squeezing, fighting, and biting.

Since then, our relationship has flourished. Else Holmelund Minarik and her wise words have forever changed the way my boyfriend and I look at alligators, teeth, and mothers who abandon their children.

My only complaint is in regards to the nude fairy on page 54. If we can put a man on the moon, why can't we put a loin cloth on a fairy? Where is the funding? What has been seen can never be unseen.

A level 2 book is not the place for profanity. Save that for the level 4 Advanced Reading books.

I bought this for my two boys as I found myself starting to tell them "no fighting.no biting!" . It's as good as I remember. Charming illustrations, as you would expect!

My mother originally read this book to my sister and I ages ago, so when I found out we were expecting, I was insistent that a copy would be on our shelf.

While it doesn't have the attention getting rhymes of Dr. Seuss or the dreamy nature of a 'Once upon a time..' the story is engrossing and teaches a good lesson.

I highly recommend a copy to any family, and doubly so to families with 2 children.

My mom used to read this story to my brother and me when we were being naughty. We both love the story. I recently bought a copy for my nieces and nephews (a couple of little alligators) and their mother reports that they're behavior has improved, and they have all memorized the entire book!

I also work as a camp counselor during the summer, and tell the kids, "No fighting, no biting, no hitting, no spitting!" The second half of the rhyme was created by my co-counselor at the time. It always works. They always stop. :)
