Beautiful Book

This is such a beautiful book! It has wonderful illustrations, and brings back warm memories of eating at a pancake house where they gave out this story when I was a little girl.


used this for a read-aloud and all my classes loved the pictures of this timeless tale fellow teachers enjoyed the history in the back as well

Sanity reigns over "political correctness"

Wonderful children's book and one I've heard and read over and over when I was young - glad it's back in print. As a child I marveled at Sambo's ingeniousness in outsmarting the tigers and, in fact, maybe even being smarter than some adults. It never occurred to me that the parents names might be derogatory, if anything the names sounded exotic: Black Jumbo and Black Mumbo. Children are innocent and see things in a clean, clear manner. Whatever is considered "bad" in this book is the manufacture of over-sensitive adults. This is a great classic and belongs in every library along with Grimm's Fairy Tales and Aesop Fables. One can revisit the magic of childhood through "Little Black Sambo".
