Love a Story that Teaches
I remembered this story from my childhood and wanted it for my own child. In re-reading it, I was surprised at how many lessons it contains: good behavior, being a good neighbor, working together, and innovative problem-solving, to name a few. Also, though I didn't grow up in MI, the pictures of the houses and backyards look very much like my old neighborhood, providing a nice trip down memory lane for me! A nice little "story about nothing" which is really a story about so much!
