Great book; a few things to talk about with children
There are so many reviews everywhere about this amazing book, I won't bother to write another one.
I will add one thing that for some reason is not mentioned at all here, because as a parent I feel this is one point of this site and is what I look for as a parent and educator:
The children find a chocolate bar and the boy eats it. They talk about the possibility of it being poisoned or containing marijuana, and briefly talk about marijuana and "dope dealers" getting kids hooked on drugs. This might be scary and/or confusing for younger children and parents should talk with children about drugs while/before reading the book. It's not a big deal but I don't feel as though this should be a young child's first introduction to drugs if they're reading this book at a young age.
(I don't feel that this book has too much about drugs, but I do feel that it's too much for young children to read about without any talk about this at all.)
This title contains:
Drinking, drugs & smoking
