This was a book that I was read when I was a child. Now I am reading it to my own daughter and she just can't get enough of it! I would recommend it to young readers.

My grandchildren were captivated by this book, as were my children when they read it years ago. A must have in your child's library!

I read this book so many times when I was a kid. 30+ years later and I could probably still recite it word for word.

A Sendak classic, Pierre is a good tale to introduce to your toddler or preschooler - whenever you hear the response "I don't care!" Pierre didn't care about anything his parents told him - until that visit to the zoo when he was eaten by a lion! Fortunately, Pierre is saved and has learned his lesson - "I care!" My nearly-three-year-old grandson enjoyed the story - as did his father before him. Although he still sometimes say he doesn't care, the story serves as a gentle reminder that perhaps he should pay attention.

I teach preschool, and have been a big fan of Maurice Sendak for years. This book is one one the favorites every year. I give my class the role of Pierre, and they have to say, "I DON'T CARE!" on cue, throughout the story. They love it! The first reading is full of surprise as the events unfold, and even a bit of fear, but then the children ask for this book over and over again. It's a true classic, right next to Where The Wild Things Are, in our library.

My parents use to read this book to me because I was just like Pierre. I never cared what about things. Now when I read this book I just laugh becuase I haven't changed much. This is a great book for children just because it is cute and does have somewhat of a lesson in it. This is a great book for your collection.

Pierre has been a favorite of mine since childhood, although I must admit that Max and the wildthings are the absolute greatest. Sendak has a wonderful way of making stories memorable for children of all ages for a lifetime. :)

An all time favorite for all my children.

This is another work of literary art from Maurice Sendak. ('Where the Wild Things Are') Although short in content, this book teaches children to obey their parents/elders and to take intrest in their surroundings. With a comical twist! This was a favorite of mine as a child and still is today!
