Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
The feeling after the first reading of this book was more negative than positive, yet rereading it opens up the depth that Boritzer is attempting to reach in his definition of "love." Early on he makes the distinction between the casual use of the word and its deeper meaning in a way that children can grasp. He then moves into a more serious discussion of the inner feeling of love. He uses the rainbow as an analogy for the various feelings that a child might have toward others--family, friends, or people of other cultures. He explains how love, caring, sharing, and understanding that everyone has the same inner feelings can help a person to love. One criticism is that Boritzer's attempt to make the book multicultural is weak; his intent is good, but is poorly expressed. This book is one that should be shared ONLY by primary caregivers and children; it is too deep for a child to read and/or understand alone. Because it is a book of questions, an adult should be present to discuss the answers to the questions. 1996, Veronica Lane Books, Ages 8 to 10, $14.95. Reviewer: Jenny B. Petty

    Great read to me book for child

    This was a free read to me book, and well worth it! It was a read to me book, my grandbaby and I watched, as it read to us. She enjoyed turning the pages. It's a very sweet book. She is 4 years old, and wants to read it every time she visits. Nice book, and it was free! Can't beat that!

    Excellent book for any parent wants to discuss with their child

    Excellent book for any parent wants to discuss with their child the meaning of love and how it can be expressed in variety of different ways.  Teach them the values of sharing and caring. Etan does an excellent job.

    Excellent multicultural approach to sharing and fairness, pointi

    Excellent multicultural approach to sharing and fairness, pointing to how we all love in similar ways, our parents, friends, etc. Excellent illustrations also with all ethnicities, even a child in a wheelchair. Highly recommend all of Boritzer's 'What is?' series!
