This is a truly timeless book. Published 50 years ago, it still rings true. My own children loved it and we played games echoing it on journeys in the car. In my classroom I use it often to set up reponses in English, math, social studies and science. It always serves to spark animated conversations.

This has it all...civics, sharing, environmental conservation, curiosity about the world...incredible, but true: I gave it to my family (extended--kids and grandkids) for Christmas here in Italy...and my 86-year-old dad sent it to my grandkids for Christmas too!! From Vermont (USA) to Italy!! Traditions ARE worth carrying on! Share this gem with someone you love.
