4.0 von 5 Sternen This is a great book for the primary grades!, 10. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Matilda (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This book is about a young girl named Matilda, who is blessed with a brilliant mind. She is very intellectual for her age, not to mention very MAGICAL! She has special powers, which enable her to do amazing stunts. However, she has two parents who are absolutely repulsive. They are very neglectful, and have no idea of how gifted she truly is. On top of that, the principal of Matilda's school cannot stand her. She is very hateful and grim toward all of the children in the school. She also dislikes any bright colors or signs of happiness. Her teacher, however, is very insightful and caring. She is very fond of Matilda. In the end, Matilda is adopted by her teacher. They live happily ever after. This is a wonderful book for the primary age. It really holds the reader's attention. Also, children can relate to this book on a personal level. There are many different themes, which teachers can use to develop meaningful lessons for their students. It deals with family life and school life. It deals with social issues, along with personal issues. However, Dahl makes this book fun by giving Madeline these special powers. The book ends on a very happy note. I would recommend this book to anyone. It is a great book for adults to read, also. It really brought out the kid in me! Read it!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A great book for building self-esteem!, 10. Juli 2000
I absolutely love this book. It is about making your way through the world. This book deals with all of the situations that one goes through as he/she travels through life. It speaks of the many twists and turns, which idealizes the events and problems one encounters. However, it gives notice to the personal power that one has to overcome these obstacles in life. I find it very encouraging. It is a great book to give a senior, who is graduating from high school. I feel that this is a great book for people of all ages. It gives hope and peace to anyone, especially those who need some extra inspiration.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is a heartwarming book for adopted children., 7. Juli 2000
This book is about a young girl, who is asking her mother and father to tell her again about the night she was born. This little girl is adopted. She knows the story by heart. So, she ends up telling the story herself. This is a very heartwarming book. It begins with the phone ringing to tell them that she has been born. I cannot begin to express how touching this book is to me. The illustrations are adorable. They are so enticing to observe. The pictures capture Curtis's writing perfectly. Laura Cornell is a gifted illustrator who brings books to life in her drawings. I would definetly recommend this book. It makes me feel all warm inside when I read it. This book really brings out the true meaning of family and what it means to be loved.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book for kindergarten and first grade!, 7. Juli 2000
This is a book about feelings and emotions. The main character is a little girl. The book follows her daily experiences, along with charting how she feels throughout these events. Feelings such as silly, angry, sad, confused, and excited are mentioned, along with events which trigger these emotions. At the end of the book, there is a page which says, "How do you feel today?" On the page opposite this, you will find an interactive page, in which the child can change the eyes and mouth of the picture to depict his/her feelings at that moment. It is an absolutely wonderful book. The illustrations are OUTSTANDING! They really bring the book to life! You will find yourself reading this book over and over again. It discusses family life and everyday events, which happen on a daily basis. Children can relate to this book because of this. They can use their background knowledge to relate the events in the book to the events in their lives. They can also compare her feelings to their own, and realize that everyone has feelings. This is a wonderful book to share with children and adults of all ages. I would definetely recommend this book to anyone.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding!, 7. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Giving Tree (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This book is about a boy and a tree. The boy and tree go throughout life together. The tree is willing to give the boy everything that it has in order for him to be happy. In the end, the tree is left with nothing but a stump, with nothing to give the boy. However, the book ends on a happy note. The boy who is now an old man, says that all he needs is a place to sit and rest. The stump gladly assists him one last time. This is a very inspirational book. I absolutely love this book. I feel that it teaches so many morals and depicts real-life very effectively. This book can be used to teach many lessons. It deals with feelings, relationships, and stages of life. There are so many different topics, which could be taught by using this book. Silverstein depicts the ways in which we need one another for various things, whether it be physical or materialistic. I rate this book-5 stars!
