A Great Lesson About Living by the Golden Rule,
This review is from: Adventures at Walnut Grove (Mom's Choice Awards Recipient) (Hardcover)
A week ago, we got this book about an adorable squirrel who lives in Walnut Grove and, ever since, my six year old daughter has asked us to read it to her every night before bedtime. I've watched her listen intently as Sammy the squirrel's feelings get hurt when he is teased about the way he looks. My four year old son has absorbed the story's life lesson as well; he's been pointing out instances of teasing every day, giving us many opportunities to talk about why that's not a nice thing to do. What a wonderful tool Ms. Lehman has provided for us grown-ups to teach little ones the foundation of good citizenship, the all important Golden Rule: that we must treat others as we would like to be treated. If everyone had learned this Rule while young, the world would certainly be a much better place! Kudos to Ms. Lehman for making the task of raising conscientious little citizens that much easier. I'm looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next!
