For nine years I was children's librarian in a K-5 school during a time when we were heavily into literature-based reading. Because teachers thought I had some talent as a story-teller/story reader I spent HOURS each week conducting story time with classes of all grade levels, with marathon sessions taking place around holiday periods. This book was a HUGE success--kids found it hilarious--especially with grades 2-5. Sometimes it took the K-1 kids a minute to get the sly humor of the book, but they enjoyed it too. The book is funny, has voices, and teaches an important lesson about how we must learn to accept our friends for what they are. It is always my FIRST choice for a valentine's day story.
