Children's books seem to be appearing at a rapid rate these days - a heartening fact in an age in which video games seem to be usurping the waking hours of our young ones. Granted there are educational television channels and some fine children's television shows available (Noggins TV is a notable example), but that joy of reading from a printed and illustrated book shared by an adult and child seems to be retaining its hold on the development of young minds in a very positive way. Sally H Taylor's book THE MOST VALUABLE TREASURE is an excellent example of the type of books worth sharing. Her writing is clean, uncluttered by meandering distractions, and is in language that respects the dignity of a child's mind as well as the intelligence of the adult reader. The story is quite simple: a little village is populated by folks who lookout for each other, sharing their own meager goods with needy friends and neighbors. And of course to keep the story interesting, there is a mysterious old house in shambles in which an equally mysterious old lady lives. The unknown breeds fear and gossip - until one of the children accidentally falls into the well on the old lady's property and someone (naturally the someone is the strange old lady) saves the boy from drowning. The boy's mother places homemade gifts of food on the old lady's doorstep and eventually the villagers gain entry into the house of mystery. Everyone pitches in to clean the old lady's home, the old lady shares her long hidden treasure with the kind folk who aided her, and the exchange of goodwill and love permeates the lives of everyone in the story. Many lessons are here, all delivered with dignity and clarity and with richly colorful illustrations (by the author). Sally H Taylor has the knack for condensing a thoughtful story enhanced by supportive images, creating a visually pleasing and emotionally satisfying gift to share equally with child and adult.
