I've read this book with my 6 and 5 years old daughters. After finishing this book I was in shock, my 6 year old daughter, who is very sensitive had tears in her eyes and the my 5 years old daughter was obviously not pleased with the content either. Maybe I'm wrong but from my point of view children books should give out something positive and/or teach kids in some way. This author might have got awards for her work and wrote 200 books, but this book is totally inappropriate. We read daily several different books with our children. We read, talk about them, and ask questions, but it is difficult to explain why a sweet little girl has a table with dead lizard that was run over by a car, a scull of a dead bird, mice bones, dead butterflies, dead seahorse, dead crab etc. displayed on a table in her room. I would not certainly let my daughters to display such things in their room if you don¿t know what kind of disease it may carry. I¿m still getting plenty of questions and concerns from my daughters. Yes, books are written, so people discuss them and think about them, but this book will certainly never make it into our home library. I had a chance to discuss it with several people and a friend of ours who is a teacher - everyone agreed that author of this book went over the limit. Maybe if your child brings a book like this home, read it first before reading it with your child.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
