3.0 out of 5 stars The Most Wonderful Thing, July 7, 2009
This review is from: Willoughby & the Lion (Hardcover)
The story is about a young boy that has moved into a new, smaller house. He is bored and feels as though he has nothing to do or anyone to play with. The young boy meets a golden lion sitting on a rock in his yard. The lion grants the boy 10 wishes. The lion will only be freed from the rock if the boy wishes for the most wonderful thing of all. After nine wishes, the boy still hasn't wished for "the most wonderful thing". The lion becomes sad and slowly the boy begins to realize what "the most wonderful thing" is.
We found the book to be a great way for students to think about what things are most important to them. The book is recommended for ages 4-7, our experiences have led us to believe the book is more suited for ages 7-10. The illustrations are very plain (black, white, and gold). The illustrations are not pleasing or attention grabbing. We would recommend the book for upper elementary students (grades 2-5). The book would tie into Character Counts or Character Education.
