There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The illustrations are very nicely done and the book is very easy to read.
I thought the book would have English and Arabic, but it does not. It does not state that it has both languages. This was my presumption. Please do not presume it, too. lol :)
Overall, this is a superb little girl's story to read to your little one.
The actual story has been told many different ways and could be enjoyable, but the Electronic version just smashes the fun of reading.
The story tells of a woman who fails to heed the old adage: Beware of what you wish for. She has no child, prays for "a child even if it is nothing more than a cooking pot," and gives birth to a cooking pot. The pot, like human children, wants to go out alone, without supervision, and after badgering its mother, is given permission to do so. The pot steals from several places with adverse results.
There is a section that deals with goat poop, so a head's up before reading it to your class. Kids will probably get a kick out of it, but who can say how parents might react if their kid comes home and retells a story they heard in school about a pot full of goat pellets? In these days of parental overreaction, one can't be unprepared. Then again, most "family" movies these days have some aspect of animal excrement used for comedy, so who knows? 3.5-4 stars.
