Format: Paperback
A story that makes you feel the struggle of a little girl when she finds a stuffed toy and doesn't want to take it to the lost and found. Jamaica finds a hat and a stuffed dog at the playground. She returns the hat to the lost and found easily, but retains the dog bkz she likes it. After she gets home she starts feeling the tugs of guilt that maybe the dog belonged to another child who is missing it. The point of realization is quite poignant - she doesn't feel well or want to do anything bkz she is really thinking over what she should do with her conscience. It is a good lesson that returning items that don't belong is a good idea bkz in the end she meets the child who lost the dog and is able to reunite her with her beloved toy. While the art work is a bit fuzzy it is a wonderful, multi-cultural story with a great morale for children who are often wondering what to do with special things they find on the playground: to return or not return - that is the question.

I recently bought this book for my daughter because I wanted her to have more books about real-life situations. I liked this book and I think it can show kids that even though they might want to keep something that they find, that it's always best to return what doesn't belong to them. Even though Jamaica liked the stuffed dog and wanted to keep it, she did the right thing when she turned it over to the park's lost and found. The only thing I didn't like about the book is that it's a bit too short.

Format: Hardcover
Jamaica learns a gentle, character-building lesson when she finds a stuffed dog on the playground and decides to keep it rather than take it to the lost-and-found. This is a realistic situation described without judgment and presented in a matter-of-fact manner that allows the reader (or child listener) to extract a very basic lesson of right and wrong, and The Golden Rule. Years ago, the story prompted a discussion with my oldest about doing unto others, and weighing right and wrong, so it is a book I kept and I am glad I did; now my youngest is enjoying the story and soon, he will be able to draw the lesson from it. The illustrations are very nice, and the feelings of the characters are plainly visible, making it an enjoyable book to read aloud to a child. Even Jamaica's inner struggle is visible on her little face, and Kristin's poignant apprehension is almost palpable. It's a really nice book, and one I recommend for all young children.

Format: Paperback
Cute story with a nice lesson for children about returning things you find or that don't belong to you. You can ask the child after reading with them this story, what did you learn from this story? It can be the theme of a class assignment. It relates values associated with inter-racial frienship, cooperation, honesty and the happiness in giving. It teaches a child that they will find pleasure in doing the right thing. The illustrations are simple, but fit the motiff and theme. This is a book worth reading to young children in the classroom or at home. Good reading for 1st or 2nd grade. You can read it to Kindergarten or even PreK children. Perfect classroom book. Read it in a K classroom in Newark.
