  • I thought the Sam story was horrible Try publishing a children s story like that today I think the author simply doesn t like children Shows that Americans back in 1967 were still a work in progress I first saw the book read on Episode 9 of the first season of Sesame Street when it aired on TV in November 1969 That story also caused me to bawl my eyes out because I didn t like the way that mean family was treating him Definitely not appropriate for children This is how kids grow up to become res [...]


  • This book was about a little boy who was the wrong size and wrong age for every activity He was too little to help his mother cut the apples for the pie, and too small to read the library book with his brother Sam got very frustrated and sad as the day went on At the end of the story, Sam finally got to help out by making his own personal raspberry tart I could use this book in the classroom by showing that every person has something to contribute No matter how old or how young, every individual [...]

  • This book was so sweet and had a family of color in it Yay for families of color and yay for problem solving families who find a way for the protagonist, Sam, to help out Helping out is a big deal for the small person visiting me We ll see if this is a hit with her.
