As an elementary school reading teacher, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The story was well thought out children's story, and I know my students would enjoy it tremendously. It also employs all the features of a folk tale and I am looking forward to using it with my classes next year. I also like the way the author incorporated the vocabulary in the book. It makes excellent use of using context clues to figure out the meaning of unknown words. I think Mr. Tilghman did an absolutely wonderful job with this book. The illustrations are beautifully done as well. I look forward to reading more of his books in the future. It is hard to find children's books of such high quality by such a talented storyteller in today's society. I would highly recommend this book.Was this review helpful?
