Temba TutuSnail: The Rainbow Chaser of Africa
on April 21, 2011
A plesant charming story to share with a child. A child will learn the importance of perserverance, to keep on trying, no matter how many times they fail as this story is read to them.
I would give it a A.
I enjoy reading books that have a lesson hid within and this story had the potential and yet failed.
Milo's brother limited himself to just one thing and a chance to teach how to expand and try new things was lost.
The sister, instead of learning how to create music, learned to bang on the piano. Something no adult wants a child to copy. Milo's small step out of the box with what he did with the popcorn was good, but it could have been taken a step further.
It had potential.
A cute story. As a grandparent who is big on stories having a lesson hidden, this one fell a little short, but otherwise a good story.
A child learned in the story that some things could look the same yet be different, and of similar items could be used in different ways, to think of what could I do with this object. The area that it fell short was the ending; a chance for Poco to have let his brother and sister know they lost out and how he responded to his mother.
A good story, it teaches to invent, kindness and sharing. All within a cute story.
Where it fails is the formating. I had to put it in landscape to read it, some of the words were hard to read as they blended in the drawings and an abrupt ending for the chapter and the start of the new one, with the title on a separate page and in portrait; thus requiring the turning of my reader.
A little rough, but a nice reading for kids.
