My thoughts about the book:
I really enjoy children’s books that send a message to children and help them learn about important values and character traits. This book is an easy read for children and the chapters are brief. My daughter, who is eight, can easily read this book.
I thought it was such a clever idea for the author to create a community in which children are able to do as they please with very little intervention from the adults. This gave me quite a bit to think about – what would that be like? I posed the same question to my daughter and she had some pretty funny answers and was thrilled with the idea! The Kids of Dandelion Township and its focus on friendship makes this a great book to include with my students. The pictures, illustrated by Lisa M. Giffen, are sweet additions to the book.
