Overview

Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi


Once there was a lonely woodcutter named Geppetto-who dreamed of having a boy of his own. So one day he carved a boy out of wood and named him Pinocchio.

When the puppet comes to life, it's Geppetto's dream come true.

Except Pinocchio turns out to be not such a nice boy after all. Pinocchio enjoys nothing better than creating mischief and playing mean tricks. As he discovers, being bad is much more fun than being good.

For a while, anyway.

Happily for Pinocchio, he will learn that there is much more to being a real boy than having fun.

And that's no lie!

About the Author

Carlo Collodi (pen-name of Carlo Lorenzini) was born in Florence in 1826. He began his career as a journalist and worked as a civil servant before becoming a published author. In 1881 he wrote a short episode in the life of a wooden puppet for a newspaper, and it was an immediate success. The first English language version of the adventures of Pinocchio was published in 1892, two years after his death.

I took turns reading pages with my 7 year old granddaughter. The vocabulary was challenging and the lessons the story taught about having a good work ethic, being self-motivated, and telling the truth were really well done. This version isn't the Disney version. It teaches in depth lessons and has good questions at the end of the book to reinforce values. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed the story and more importantly my granddaughter really enjoyed the book.
