Very Nice Story!
We enjoyed this story and the little twist it had at the end. One of the lessons learned of not taking things for granted was interesting. The Author did a great job. My daughter enjoyed the book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The Treasure- Uri Shulevitz
Dreaming one night, Issac dreamt of a treasure. Even though he went to be every night hungry since he was a poor man, he ignored the dream. The dream came back to him again and he igonred it. But when it came back the third time he decided to follow it. 'In his dream, a voice told him to go to the capital city and look for a treasure under the bridge by the Royal Palace.' So Issac went after the treasure. He went on his journey. Sometimes someone was nice enough to give 'him a ride but most of the timed he walked. He walked through forests. He crossed over mountians. And finally he reached capital city.' Did Issac find the treasure under the bridge? Does he become a rich man? You will have to read to find that out. This book is great for a second grade reading level. This is a great book to have children learn to follow their dreams. I love all of her books because i find that they have a great message behind them and the illustrations are beautiful. Shulevitz, Uri.THE TREAUSRE.

The Treasure is a Caldecott Honor book. Isaac was a very poor old man. He would go to bed at night very hungry. One night he had a dream. A voice told him to go to the Capital City and look for a treasure under the bridge. ¿It¿s only a dream.¿ Said the old man. The same dream came back two more nights in a row. Isaac decided to go and see if there was anything to it. He walks and walks until he reaches the bridge. What does he find? This book would be good for grades 2-6th. I enjoyed this book. This book encourages the reader to follow their dreams. This book is a fantasy fiction book. I don¿t think you would ever find treasure by listening to your dreams. Uri Schulevitz is from Poland. Mr. Schuleitz left Poland with his family when he was four. They left because of the war. Mr. Shulevitz lives in New York where he writes books for children. Shulevitz, Uri. The Treasure.

This book is written simply enough that a child would like it, but it also has a deeper meaning that a person of any age could relate to. I have read it to my younger friends many times, and enjoyed it myself as well.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
