Fun Read for a Young Reader
Reviewed in the United States on May 7, 2015
I bought this book for my 7 year old son who is finishing first grade and is just starting to read chapter books (by chapter books, I mean longer ones, not just the "Henry and Mudge" types that can be read in 20 minutes). I love this book! It is like hearing a funny grandpa tell you about his childhood. Mr. de Paola is a good narrator of his own life. My son really got a kick out of some of the antics, like how Tomie behaved while seeing Snow White in the movie theatre. I read the first chapter out loud to my son to make sure he comprehended it. It did, and then he finished the rest of the book himself.
I highly recommend this book to any first or second grader. Teachers and parents would enjoy reading it as well.
