5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo, Papa Piccolo! March 13, 2013
This review is from: PAPA PICCOLO Famlies, Fatherhood,Caring and Nurturing Children's Picture Book (Fully Illustrated Version) (Kindle Edition)
This charming book with beautiful, detailed illustrations can be helpful in teaching children that boys and men can be caring and nurturing - just like Papa Piccolo, the tomcat in the story. It may also assist both boys and girls in developing these character traits from Piccolo's example. The story also illustrates the concept that families can exist in different forms, and that a family is where there is love and caring. Included is a map of Venice with information about that city that will provide cultural enrichment. The information provided for parents and educators at the end of the book are additional tools to aid in the character development of children. It's an excellent book that I highly recommend.
5.0 out of 5 stars CUTE book!! March 15, 2013
I just LOVED this book, with the cute, realistic illustrations. I had a bit of a problem using the text pop-up, though, but I admit I don't have a whole lot of experience using the feature, much less with longer sets of text. Still, I just couldn't take even a star from such an enjoyable book.
MOST highly recommended!
By Carol Talley
Piccolo shows boys and girls about sharing their strength with those who are smaller, younger, or weaker. Caring and nurturing...Piccolo leads a life full of adventure and possibilities. And then two homeless kittens decide to adopt the free-spirited Piccolo. 'I'm not a Papa cat," objects Piccolo. "I'm a tomcat." Children delight in seeing how the kittens help Piccolo discover his own tender heart and a new kind of adventure.
