Whimsical and frolicking illustrations bring the pages alive with color while the rhythmic and flowery prose will capture children’s vivid imaginations. As they hear and repeat the words and inspect the illustrations even toddlers will find encouragement for the tasks they already perform at home. Youngsters will also discover new ways to use their skills and talents for the benefit of others as well as the satisfaction of receiving back through their own giving. Parents will be thrilled with the additions to this book which assist in finding additional media from this author, an introduction written in the form of a letter to parents with activities and suggestions to correlate with the story, and even some simple questions and lists of tasks or projects to involve children long after the book has been read. Even the language itself is formatted for emphasis on specific phrases through the use of bright colors and larger fonts. Other adults who have relationships with children in their lives will enjoy sharing this book with the youngsters as well.
