Chester was my favorite book as a child so naturally when I became a mom my child HAD to have it!! As soon as I began reading it to him I remembered why I loved it. It definitely teaches a child how we all have a place in life. We just have to seize the opportunity to create or find it.

My 2 1/2 year old boys love Chester. I remember reading Syd Hoff books in elementary school and they're still as wonderful now as they were then.
