I liked how it was a story going along with it as it teaches you new words. And for kids that don't understand friendship it teaches them that too! (Levi, age 9)
The author is first and foremost an excellent story teller. I loved the story line about the power of words and the illustrations are wonderful. The soft voice the author uses to pronounce the words is very soothing to the ears. Priscilla is the cutest ostrich I have ever seen, especially when she sticks her head in the sand! I just love her! I highly recommend this book - your children will learn and fall madly in love with Priscilla! (MaryAnn Touchette)
Perfect companion for grammar lessons! Strengthens the concept of parts of speech while teaching life lessons about sharing and making friends. My grandson loved the story, as well as the gorgeous illustrations throughout--Priscilla is so adorable! This would be a wonderful tool for traditional teachers or home-school teachers to reinforce nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs lessons! (Caroline Reichard, author Between Shadow's Ears)
