The message resonated with me, a corporate world refugee, as it will with many others who may/may not have survived the 'woman wars' since Women's Lib enabled us. Certain types climbed and career-clawed with switch blade fingernails, shoes embellished with football cleats, and elbows akimbo to broaden their paths to the top. 'Nice' was abandoned so as to appear more capably macho.
Boy, did those women get it wrong! Some of them may now be grandmothers and may wish to atone, to make this world a kinder, safer place of contentment, peace, and joy for all. Hark, do I hear Santa's sleigh bells? Please buy this book: its message is priceless.
Nicholas liked naming the flowers and identifying all their colors. He showed me "the wind" and the stars and wanted me to "wead it again". Christopher pointed at everything he recognized, and he couldn't get enough of the visual.
This is a great discussion book. I'd say 7, 8, and 9 year olds are a nice target age. The vocabulary of "respect," "acceptance," and "compassion" are critical in today's society of all too prevalent bullying.The book is a lovely read-to-me book and emerging readers as well will find "word families" that will reinforce reading skills.
All three children I read this story to loved getting up and actually standing tall; they made me "stand tall" as well. Bella understood the metaphorical meaning of that phrase and she seemed to "stand tall" from the inside!
To top off the whole experience with my neighbor's children, when we were finished, I turned the book over. Nicholas then pointed to the picture of the author on the back. When I told him that was the person who wrote the book, he smiled and said, "I 'wike' that 'wady'". That said it all for me.
