Little Kid Reaction
pending
Big Kid Reaction
The intentions are admirable and the good things outweigh the shortcomings of this book. Still, it is only a 5 on the scale of 1 to 10. The translation may be a part of the problem, as the adaptation of Polish to English vernacular is sometimes cumbersome.
Pros:

The adventures of Rascal and his friends provide countless opportunities for the reader to learn about friendship, responsibility, respect for elders, appreciation of cultural differences, and dealing with fear.

Cons:

Though meant to appeal to young readers, the stories will be more effective if they are “read to” rather than “read by” 8 to 10 year olds.
