A treasure for always

I bought this book on recommendation of our montessori pre-school teacher and both of my girls (ages 2 and 4) just love it. It's simple verses are 'catchy' to my little ones and I have to say it's every bit a hit as 'Good night Moon' ever was around here at bedtime! A really little treasure!

My son and I love stick kid

My son and I were lucky to stumble on this book by chance at our local library. I have read it to him every night before bed for the past two weeks and it is still adorable and captures his attention. Not a small feat for a 3 year old.

Must read

Adorable book. Great for fun read alouds with children and also a great example of rhyming text. Illustrations are simple, but fun. Any child or adult can relate to this book because we have all drawn stick figures before, the only difference is that this one Stick Kid gets a back story. This book can also be used in the classroom, or at home to get children to draw a picture, whether it be their own stick person and get them to write or tell you a story about it. You can even have them make a series of pictures and have the kid(s) make their own book.

Great for any age!

I read this to myself prior to sharing with my children...I cried...I read with my older son (age 9) and we both sister read it and cried...It's beautifully written, simple enough even for the youngest, but so touching that you'll all enjoy it! Now one of our favorites...If you like The Giving Tree, you'll love this one too!

a wonderful new classic

This is a wonderful, simple and endearing book that is perfect for preschoolers. My three-year-old son loves the rhyming and simple stick figures. The author/illustrator is exceptionally good at telling and showing a warm story that still brings a tear to my eye (I really sob when I read "The Giving Tree"!).I have been reading this book to my son as the last book at bedtime and it really helps him unwind, especially after reading smart-alecky gross-out books like "I Stink" (which he also enjoys).Please read the School Library Journal review above for a comprehensive description of why this book is so great.
