If you judge a book by it’s cover, you have no time to love it. I am embarrassed to admit that I almost judged Little Pear by Eleanor Francis Lattimore. One look at the cover made me believe that my boys wouldn’t like this book.
News flash – my boys LOVED Little Pear!
And I did too.
Little Pear is a compilation of stories about a five-year-old Chinese boy and his adventures. He learns the importance of communicating with his family, not wandering off, and problem solving with his friends.
Some children’s books fail to communicate the consequences of lying, running away from home, and stealing. This isn’t one of the books. Like the book Ping, this book creatively teaches values and introduces vital conversations between parent and child.
I don’t own this book yet, but it is on my ever-growing-list of books to buy. I love owning books with values and goodness in my house for little hands and growing minds to explore.
