5.0 out of 5 stars How did I miss this?, February 23, 2014
This review is from: A Very Special House (Hardcover)
Caldecott Honor Book that we picked up at the library. The author also wrote The Carrot Seed, and this book is much different. Single sentences go on for paragraphs -- stream of a 5-year-old consciousness that rings true. Don't worry about the dead mouse -- who cares, really? Why wouldn't a little child take a dead mouse everywheres? Removing limits from our actions is exactly what day-dreaming is about. The author doesn't judge the child, or anything that occurs in the Very Special House. The grammar is wrong, the words are wrong (feetprints) and the actions are wrong (rabbits don't eat doors).

And all is it is wonderful and Nobody ever says stop stop stop.

You will read it again and again, even after your child is asleep. Because we all need to be reminded that its okay to imagine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful pictures, lovely story, July 27, 2012
This review is from: The Secret Garden (Paperback)
The story is wonderful and the illustrations are timeless. You can really enjoy the words with colorful, detailed pictures.

We read this with my son when he was about 7, and he was enthralled - and identified with both boys in the story. My daughter was about 5 and not very interested. She's now nearly 7 and can't wait to read more by Burnett and look at anything drawn by Moore. We'll be reading this again and again.

For myself, I enjoy the reminder that when we think beautiful thoughts, we leave no room for the dark and depressing. And that we create our own happiness.

A review book for an open-book test should at least have a good index. Practice test questions were worse than useless, it was misleading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good even for young ones, May 21, 2010
My 6-yo didn't like some of the sadder adventures, but was riveted nonetheless. My 4-yo cried at the reunion of Odysseus and Penelope and then took the book to read to herself in bed. The illustrations are lovely. The language is, at times, graphic, so be warned. For example, Troy's destruction is described as "blood-soaked rubble." At the same time, Odysseus's regret and mourning is described, preventing the horrors from being gratuitous. The story isn't watered down, but is fast-paced and works well even for younger children.
