    My child loves this book!

    After reading some of the reviews by the adult librarians and critics, one would be led to believe that this book is not worth purchasing. On the contrary - I first purchased this book when my son was just learning how to put letters together into words. I put aside concerns about 'politically correct' material (as one critic pointed out, the war theme may give some parents pause. Hardly - it's on the news and in the papers constantly) and focused on the message - it's simple, it's clear, and my son got it right away even though he was only in preschool! The humor is not too far above a kindergartener or a first-grader at all. In fact, the kids we've read it to love the way the letters form characters and objects! The final message of working together is clearly understood by the younger set. I suggest that if you are interested, preview the book with the eyes of a child, not an adult, and I'm sure you'll find it funny and enjoyable.

    An excellent story to inspire writing!

    As a special education teacher I'm always looking for books that will inspire my kids to read and write. This book has great wit for the adults (I'm still finding amusing things in the pictures and text) as well as an interesting story for school aged children. I've used it for kids ages 5-12, and even though it's written on a second grade level, it can be used to teach a multitude of lessons, and is a great springboard for new writing lessons! Don't miss this book!
