I’ve always loved this story, it’s one just about every adult knows from their childhood. I really enjoyed the illustrations that are by Elena Almazova & Vitaly Shvarov. I thought they were very cute! I would recommend this book to every parent, grandparent, and person who enjoys Christmas stories. I also think this is the perfect book to make your Christmas Eve traditional read before the children go to bed.
This book is a collection of short stories that, according to the Author is to help children learn to respect animals. I also read little life lessons within these short stories. This book is for children ages 4-8 and I recommend this book to parents who enjoy reading to their children and for parents looking for short stories to help their child learn to read.
