Reviewed by author Roy Murry
In the meadow, there is much going on. Young animals frolicking doing their thing, which is nicely illustrated in Ms. Danino’s story of a youngster who is gathering some fruit for his friends.
He is different from the others because of his natural persona that his friends love. However, the adults have a problem with some of his frequent disruptions to the meadow. And, this is where the Ado begins.
The animal (Child) is placed in a position where doubt festers in as to its existence as to who he is. This produces the child’s reactions.
Mary's simple prose repeats these reactions with illustrations, which when read out laud will bring a smile to a 3 – 5 year old listening to your voice. This book, I believe is to be read to a child the first time around or many times.
Ado’s main character redeems himself to the adult animals by saving the day. His friends were not surprised. The adults had to agree that he is a friend indeed and should stay in the meadow.
The combination of sound bites repeated and the illustrations makes this an enjoyable read with your young ones. Also, there are morals within the paragraphs. Christmas is around the corner; and I believe a book with illustrations of animals is always a good choice as a gift for a child.
Try this one, which I have read out laud twice. Cute.
This story has some really great characters. I actually felt sorry for dear Poddy, when his attempts at sharing and kindness, goes wrong, and he ends up somewhat isolated from his friends.
There are some very good messages within this story, and I'm sure that Children will be delighted with the eventual outcome! A really nice story by author Mary Danino. I recommend this book. It will make good bedtime and family reading.
In the end, it is specifically his differences that saves the day (and his friends), and everyone, including Poddy, learns to love and appreciate him for who he is.
I love the message in this book and the drawings will engage any child. Some of the language is fairly advanced which gives children a chance to learn as they read.
Lots of room for conversation between parent and child as you read this one!
I definitely recommend adding this moral lesson to your library!
Important lesson here for young children to learn. You can be yourself. Depending on the maturity of your child I think a 5 year old is probably too old for this book.
Well written and illustrated.

Very funny moments include Poddy the hedgehog trying to soften his thorns and inadvertently making them sharper. Haha!
Great illustrations too, really complement the story.
And then there's Puffy, the rabbit. Grr!

I think that children aged between 5yrs. and 7yrs. would enjoy it most. They would be able to empathise with Poddy and realise that he was being treated unfairly.
With some lovely repetition in places, it would sound well read aloud to groups of children. Also, Rosario Laperal's illustrations are beautiful.
