Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was buying books to use as rewards for a first grade classroom. Due to budget, I was purchasing books that were on sale - basically $2.50 or less. This book was a $1.79, had received a 5 star rating and was 32 pages long. I purchased this title along with three of the other titles by this author, also for $1.79. I was very surprised when I received the books and they were only 3 1/4 inches by 3 1/4 inches big. I went online and looked in the description of the book and did not see it written anywhere that the book was a miniature. I read the story; it did not flow smoothly. I thought maybe they edited some of the story out so it could be made into a miniature book. I counted the pages and there were only 30 pages in the book including the frontispiece, title page and dedication. I included the books in the pile of other books (regular-sized paperbacks) I offered to the children. None of them picked the miniature books; they wanted the bigger books. I returned all of the miniatures, except one, to the store for a store credit. The one I kept was called Something Good. The story made sense, was funny and had a good lesson. I am using it as a read aloud to the classrooms I volunteer to read in.
