  • Hi! I just posted about the book here on my blog: http://thesecherishedmoments.blogspot.com/2010/11/another-book-giveaway.html
    It’s so great to see a book where the characters don’t have the regular names like John,Sue,etc.With all the diversity here in the US it would be great of more chidren’s books had names from other ethnicities so that we could learn the names…so many of us have a hard time pronouncing foreign names b/c we’re not used to it & it can be embarassing.Thanks for the giveaway!

  • I would like to give this book to my son who likes math but is struggling with some math concepts, and they teach a different way than I learned years ago so I can’t really help him out.
