Author Yuval Harpaz does a fine job of explaining the feelings that are involved when a best friend chooses to play with someone else. He develops the theme of one of our basic freedoms..."freedom of choice" which includes choosing new friends. This author also goes on to explain that it is best not to jump to conclusions as there could be a very good reason behind the choice. He suggests, through the assistance of Robin and his elderly Grandfather, that it is definitely better to ask the friend "why" instead of wondering what happened. I also like the point of view that each boy has the freedom of choice to choose to play with others...and with that comes the opportunity and added bonus of making new and enjoyable friends.
Inspirational Author & Book Reviewer ~ Dolores Ayotte
Growing Up & Liking It
This is a story of a rather hurt little boy who is seemingly rejected by his best friend. It is a minor snub on his friend's part but our little boy takes it to heart. This is a very common thing with the young. Anyway, the hurt young man meets a cricket whose great grandfather had lived and spent time in the pocket of FDR. This old cricket was full of wisdom and between the old cricket and the new our young fellow is able to adjust, make new friends, and gain, become even better friends with the other lad whom he felt had rejected him.
The author has done a nice job with this work and I enjoyed it very much. I will tell you that the author has used sentence structure which is a bit different than the norm. I personally feel this is a good thing as it exposes the young reader to something he or she may not be familiar with and this is a good thing in my opinion.
The illustrations are very well done...nothing fancy here, but direct and to the point and go well with the text.
I liked this little e-book.
Wanted to read this book to get the idea across to children in a different way than how I've been trying.
Colorful children's book. There is also a free parents guide to help your child make new friends.
Tommy and Jimmy when they got together would play and for hours. One day Jimmy walked away from them playing and Tommy thought it was something he had done.
He plans to ignore Jimmy when he asks him to play so he will know what it feels like to be alone.
Tommy finds a cricket in his room and puts it in a jar. The cricket tries to make a deal with him... Liked hearing of the presidents own experience with how to deal with things.
They go on an adventure so the cricket Robin can show him his grandfather and explain about what to do when your friends walk away from you.
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.
Written for 2nd graders on up, there are several illustrations which help keep the story interesting.
Who wouldn't want to scare away the shadows from under their bed?! This wonderful story is written from a fresh and personal perspective. While showing how a kid handles his fear of the dark, it gives a very intelligent tip for parents on parenting.
The story has beautiful illustrations and well written. Straight after reading the story, my daughter who is about to start her second grade, gone looking for the shadow under her bed with a flash light. She thought it was fun. I think that if a regular child acts like this after reading the story, than it is probably a pretty good one.
It is a story about imagination, determination and turning on the light in our hearts, too. I loved it. Two thumbs up!
