*I received a copy of this book from the author for review purposes.
Author Joe Spraga writes an engaging rhyming tale teaching a wonderful lesson about how we choose to spend our time on this earth. Children will appreciate the simplicity of the tale and the lesson it teaches.
I read this book to my two daughters ages seven and ten. My seven-year-old adored the book and loved how the characters changed for good because of Father Time. The illustrations are bright and bold. This book would be great for primary classroom teachers who want to introduce to their students the concept of character change. It would be easy for young students to grasp with this story because it is presented in such a simplistic and straight-forward way. I recommend this book for elementary-aged children and classroom/school libraries.
