I’ve received a KINDLE Edition from the author through her giveaway on LibraryThing.com and the following is my honest opinion.
As anyone who has had children knows can tell you; trying to communicate to them regarding certain things at their age is at times quite an arduous task, especially when it comes to their being disappointed or discourage. The author, Orly Katz, using her knowledge has done a marvelous in accomplishing precisely that by not trying to hit the child reading this book over the head about not being discouraged or disappointed when something doesn’t go the way you had wanted it to be. More important she hasn’t spoken down to the child either; which would have turned the child off to about what is being said. Instead Ms. Katz has made sure her book speaks to the child at their level, making it easy for them to relate to what they’re reading.
Credit for the success of this book must be given to the book’s translator, who did a marvelous job in keeping her translation to the intent of the book’s original language which had been made harder due to the rhyming element of the book. When you have a rhyming for a book’s the story aids in grabbing and keeping the child’s attention for the book, from the beginning to the end. If you have any doubts regarding this, just think of the Dr. Seuss you read as a child, I know I have.
For helping children in not being disappointed or getting discouraged, this book is getting 5 STARS.
