Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
one of the best books by a classic 20th century children's author. It's easy to think 'Ah, a good book about shape and tessellation: but it's much more than that. It's about fitting in, it's about striking out on your own, it's about growing up. His quirky and undidactic take on moral issues of friendship and maturation is finely in tune with the way children think. The writer Vivien Gussin Paley based a whole book on the way that the children she taught reacted to the work of Lio Lionni.

a wonderful book for young children to explore shape. A great activity after reading is to tear up lots of pieces of coloured paper and let children create their own characters similar to the ones in the book. A wonderful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captured a toddler's imagination 28 Nov. 2015
By ACJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this for my (then) 4 year old, because we love books about characters who have a journey about fitting in (who doesn't like an underdog?). I also love Leo Leonni's work in general, because it speaks to children without speaking down to them. It didn't really connect with her.

One day, my 2 year old, who loves to look through his sister's bookcase, pulled it out and asked me to read it. He loved it instantly, so much so that he took it to his bookcase, and it's been staying there ever since and is read pretty frequently. Sometimes, when he's in a playful mood, he will even tell me "I am Pezzettino", and pretend to be going on a boat. Or will start telling the story in the car randomly.

5.0 out of 5 stars We love this book 7 May 2016
By Jules - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We love this book! I think it is the perfect book for a 4-8 year old. My son loves it and always ask me what is my favorite part. It is beautifully written, fun and colorful illustrations. I love the meaning in the story and I can tell my son does too.
5.0 out of 5 stars We all enjoyed this book 29 Dec. 2014

We all enjoyed this book. Especially nice for little ones as it shows how we are just little pieces but we can be part of a whole new thing or just be us and it is ok both ways. We looked at art afterwards to see how some paintings are made up of dots or lines but put together it makes a picture of something lovely,
