Excellent Retelling of a Beloved Story
I fondly remember the book "Little Black Sambo" from my childhood. Often when my three and six year old sons would run around in circles, I warned them that they would turn into butter. I was delighted to find this book on the library shelf. I have read this story to them every night for two weeks, and they savor every word of it. The illustrations are gorgeous. The humor comes out in the potrayal of the tigers. The language is soothing, simple, and repetitive. Perfect for emerging readers. I pause and let my children fill in the words. I highly recommend this book. It's a classic.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
