Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
According to the "Parent Guide" at the end of this book, "The value implicitly expressed in this story is 'tenacity'—holding fast, stubborn." The quote, "We may look different but we feel the same," also appears on the same page, as well as on the title page. However, nowhere in the book are characters' feelings discussed, exposed, or referred to, so how does the reader know that Milly, Molly, and Aunt Maude feel the same? As for tenacity, it seems a negative characteristic as depicted here, rather than a positive trait. Milly and Molly end up in the hospital as a result of their tenacity to keep gardening through the winter, and all the while Aunt Maude tenaciously knits blankets for no apparent reason, snapping out dialog to Milly, Molly and kind Dr. Smiley. Between the covers of this book you will find words and pictures, but where is the story? 2002, Milly Molly Books, Ages 4 to 8.
