The rapid dialogue, jo-jo (the dog) and christmas time plot keeps the interest of even very young children. My 4 and 6 year old could easily understand how three homeless children would want a home more than toys at christmas time. Many moral themes are explored such as lying, stealing, pride, slothfulness, generousity, and love, but all are merely brushed over with suggestion and no deep topics are probed within the character's dialogue or heart. Probably the most profound statement is the definition of a home found on the last page. All characters were interesting but not fully developed. Motives to why the hobo chose to be a hobo to begin with are never explained. How the father died is never explained either and the children never speak of him (such as missing him or recalling him or his words). The characters are quite shallow.
But the story moves quickly and has a lot of life and interesting scenes in it. The detailed descriptions of the scenery make you feel like you are there seeing it!
Overall, it is a good one time read but not likely one that we read again and again!

Ilove that book.It is so exciting, and great.I felt like a parisian hobo Armand who met three poor starlings on the street of Paris.The children lives with their mother on the street.They found really comfortable place where can they live.But one day came Armand and everything was changed.He took starlings to gypsi family.The family was pretty nice.They give food, and bed for starlings, and for their mum.I really like that book because I can teach that everybody once will need a help.And people can help each other.We are humans,and we are able to help.So, lets do it.

I volunteer in a reading program in a local elementary school and in the media center. This will be the fourth year we will be reading this book aloud in the fourth grade. I made a word list for each student. We locate all place named in the book on a posted map in the classroom. I also consult other sources and copy to show the students that there are suce things as the Louvre, the market place, the bridges. The children make friends with the children in the book and feel as they feel living wthout a home or father. They watch the transformation of Armand and their mother realizing that one can accept help from another gracefully. They also like Jojo and how he turns white after his bath, to say nothing of Armand's improved appearance! We'll keep this book in our collection. We schedule reading it around Christmas.
