Reading allows me to travel through time; to visit the world's unique and stunning places. To become somebody I am not... It is glorious.
I read this book last night based on another's review and I am very glad that I did. It is a sweet children's book that was written 70 years ago but which holds up to the test of time. It touches on the very difficult subject of bullying and allows children to see that differences make others interesting. This book won the Newberry Award in 1945 and I believe it could still win the award if released today. There is an excellent review written by Brina, and I will not try to do what she did so well. I simply want to state that if I had a young child today, this book would be one we read starting tonight.
I loved this sweet and sad little story as a child, and it still resonates. It will encourage anyone to be kinder to others who may e or seem to be "different".
This was read in an enjoyable manner that you could hear and comprehend easily
the moral of it
she spoke in a easy to listen to voice that you can understand and was not softspoken
