I think once you get started reading the first story you will keep coming back for the next one, I know I will no mater how long it takes me I will have read everyone of the stories. I am still a kid at heart (76) and I have enjoyed everyone of the books I have read so far.
I just wish I still had kids at home that I could share reading these stories to, I envy the parents that are able to get these stories and then sit an read to their child or children these stories not even time is spent one on one any more with kids, the world is changing so much.
Please don't stop with the first book of his that you read continue getting one every week an having a time set aside to spend with your child. They will always remember these times even if you don't think that they will.
Don't forget to send a message to the author they never get tired of hearing how much their stories mean to people and then also make that review even if all you say is read this story it is so cute and good.
It's a great collection of short stories so your children can select a story with ease. It features stories that teach children about things like helping others and about friendship. Most children learn at a much higher and faster rate these days, or so it seems. I want to use books to further their understanding and reinforce what we teach them daily. Teaching children to enjoy reading is a priority for my family. Children that enjoy reading tend to have better communication skills as adults.
I highly recommend this book it's a great one to add to your reading collection. At the time I purchased this book it was free to all on Amazon. I did receive an email from the author notifying me the book was free, and asked to read and review it. I'm giving my open honest opinions about the book.
The second story was my favorite, as it told the tale of the sad mama tiger who had lost her baby. Without going into detail, the author simply relays that a mother without her baby is sad, and needs something to take her mind off of her loss. When the tigress agrees to look after baby piglets, it helps her heal her loss and prepare for the future. As with all the Oliver stories, there is a happy ending that will leave the entire family smiling!
I love the way that all of Mr. Stejskal's stories have little life lessons built into them. They encourage children to develop and understand concepts such as sympathy, courage, and responsibility. They're great little stories that kids will love, and parents won't mind sharing with them.
Oliver and Jumpy illustrations are mostly cute, colorfully intense hard edge graphics superimposed on softer backgrounds. The immediacy and brightness of the pIctures probably would appeal more to younger than to older readers. This is more a book you'd read to your kids or the kids you're taking care of than expect youngsters to read on their own; although the words aren't especially difficult, the font size is fairly small and best for more mature readers of maybe 13 years old and up. This would be a wonderful story for younger kids to listen to and retell on their own by turning pages, looking at the pics, remembering what it was about or adding their own embellishments. I especially enjoyed the adorable pictures of foxes, tigers, and pigs in Good Deed Day.
