    Bygone Eras Remembered

    If Sterling North¿s Rascal is one of your favorites, then Little Klein will quickly worm its way into your heart. Little Klein is the town designation for the youngest of the Klein brothers. He has a name, but it¿s a name that is far grander than his frail self. His mother constantly worries about him and his health and expects his three older brothers (the Bigs) to look after him. This story focuses on the relationship of a family in a rural town plagued by tornadoes and Little Klein¿s determination to do the right thing. This is a quick read, but is reminiscent of some of the older stories. Students who enjoy nostalgic tales will love this story¿a story which, by the way, would be quite fun as a read aloud to a 5th or 6th grade class.

    I Also Recommend:


    This is a wonderful book that brings the reader back to childhood, whether it is a childhood of the 1940s, like Little Klein's, or the 1970s, like myself. Adults look back on those days as a simpler time but Little Klein reminds us that the child sees the enormity of every small action, and every meal and game of catch can be touched with daydreams of heroism and glory.
    Parents and children alike will enjoy Little Klein's adventures, his strong-willed mother, his rowdy big brothers, his loyal mutt. This book is like a favoirte childhood memory-- something you will savor for a long, long time.
