Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-A solid retelling of the Old Testament story of the Queen of Sheba's visit to Solomon to see just how wise he was. The rich, vibrant, full-color illustrations with pen detail are filled with flowers, the focus of the third riddle that King Solomon must solve. A good series entry for beginning readers.

From Booklist

Gr. 2-3. Spurred by tales of the wisdom of King Solomon, the wise Queen of Sheba visits him in order to test his knowledge and increase her own. First she asks him riddles, then she challenges him to find the one real flower among a thousand blooms made of silk, paper, and glass. Confounded by the scented, artificial garden, Solomon opens a window and lets in a bee, which leads him to the real white rose growing amid the "permanent flowers." The African queen leaves Solomon enriched by the knowledge that "to the wise, even small creatures can be great teachers." Colorful illustrations add to the book's appeal. While the tale is charming, well told, and evidently traditional, the story demands source notes and the book does not supply them. Still, this Bank Street Ready-to-Read book is an unusual and worthwhile choice for young readers. Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more
