Format: Kindle Edition
Learning to love yourself can be difficult especially for children who are not accepted by their peers. Sometimes all kids need are a few coping skills and some basic understanding. The hero in this story learns this and more in a fantasy tale where all it takes is one really good friend.

A very imaginative and sensitive treatment of a difficult subject. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to help your children understand why people need to feel like they "fit in" and how to get through the difficult times that most people face at some point in their lives.

Format: Paperback
What makes any young child turn away from petty displays of brutality toward one's peers to becoming open to a new vision of unselfish awareness? In Fruit of the Vine, Ellen Weisberg's & Ken Yoffe's fable of a boy's metamorphosis from a somewhat paranoid fearful introvert into an open-hearted candidate for new friendships, the wish that we older folks believe would transform kids from little beasts to budding ambassadors of good will is realized in a fantasy. The story makes me recall my own childhood where I fought off the negative and demeaning ostracism of certain of my classmates because I was a bit different. Today we have studies in diversity and sensitivity training for adults, young and old alike, but what really touches peoples' hearts? Perhaps this excellent short tale of a sad little boy who dreams of a different way to happiness will give a little jolt to all of us -- very young readers and adults also -- reminding us that beauty is always in the eye of the beholder.

I recommend this book to parents, children and teachers, as well as lovers of the art of illustrating a child's illusions of life. The drawings were amazing in how they revealed aspects of a day in a kid's world. My favorite was one of a school bus where various views of mocking grins peered out from the bus windows at the figure of the unappreciated little loner. There is as much wisdom in the pictures as in the story.

Fruit of the Vine is a great book that is wonderfully written with fantastic illustrations. The timing of this book couldn't be better with all the attention being focused on the negative impact of bullying and this book highlights the benefits of embracing ones differences and recognizing true friendship.

Format: Paperback
Funny, poignant, exciting, and very, very topical, this book is a pleasure to read. Both a children's fantasy and a book on the theme of bullying, it contains so many messages, some subtle and some more obvious, for many different ages of readers. The artwork really adds to the story. The ending is very satisfying, but it certainly does make me want more such books from these authors!
