Beautful, warm illustrations depict ethnically diverse people. The language is reminicent of jazz with its sing-song quality and short sentences that sound slow and rounded. Great book for students working on fluency who read too fast!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
