   Sad read for our family
This book was hard to read as a parent of a child with a disability. Some parents think that we are overreacting, but if you have a child with missing body parts, you'll understand how inappropriate this is. Do your son think it was funny? I had heard great things about it, but didn't know what it was about. I started to cry when I read it to our older son. I hope our son doesn't have to live in a world where we make fun of other people.
   What's not to LOVE?! Bought multiple copies. Would buy them again.
I had to get my own copy of the story-telling Granny because I was enamored with it. I have purchased more than one. This is a good book for working with children. It's very lovable, Granny, because of the rhymes, noises, and humor. The book was perfect for a paperback and in perfect shape. I think it would make a better hardback book. Purchase it! You won't be disappointed. The age and reading difficulty was requested by the review. Most of the students I use it for are better readers than English-speaking children of the same age. My rating won't translate well to English-speaking children. It's Fyi.
   Fun book with rhyme and a good teaching tool to discuss differences.
A cute book. My five year old granddaughter likes to hear rhymes. Some people are upset that the theme makes fun of disabled people. You can talk about how some people have disabilities. The Positive note at the end of the story is that the donkey is handsome. This is a great way to teach your children that we all have differences and that we can learn from each other. I give this book five stars because it is fun.
   Great fun for the whole family!
I am so happy to be able to share my love of reading with my grand and great-grandchildren and I can't wait to read this book together. Thank you to the author and illustrator. Thank you, Amazon, for getting it to me quickly! I purchased 3 copies. One for my grandson, one for my great grand-daughter, and one for my daughter when she has the little darlings. I will order a copy for my house too. It's!
   Name calling for disabilities
I bought this book because of the rhyming aspect, but I didn't expect the name calling for an animal with a missing limb to teach kids to name call. Enough is enough with the way our schools are being treated. I saw name calling start in kindergarten. If one of the children listening had a parent with a missing limb, how sad would that be? We don't need this one because we have so many wonderful books.
   Disturbing book, not worth the time to read or the money
Some friends recommended this book to me. My husband stopped reading it after the 3rd page because he felt it was disturbing. We like to play CAH with the best of them, but don't think this is an appropriate book. It seems like the illustrations are promoting making fun of people with disabilities. Do not read Pout Pout Fish, Giraffes Can't Dance, and Brown Bear because they are better. Don't waste time or money.
   Inappropriate for toddlers
I don't know what we were expecting from this book, but it wasn't what we ended up with. The first page where he has one leg caught me off guard, but the rest of it turned me off of it. I shared a few pages to give potential buyers a better idea of the book since the listing didn't give much information. This is not a book I would share with a child. Thehumor is lowbrow and tasteless, in my opinion. I immediately returned the book because it felt like it to me.
   this book is not cute or funny
My granddaughter is coming up on 2 and I bought this book for her. I am not going to read this to her. I don't want her to think that it's ok to call someone "wonk" because they have a missing eye. My child was burned in a fire and we never found it funny or cute when people called him funny names. The book went into the garbage can. I will not give it away.
   Not our kind of book
I bought this book to read with our kids. I read it and it went into the recycle bin. Not to Goodwill. It's a pity that thousands of people loved it, but it's tasteless and contains bathroom humor. Not for my family!
   Not for children or for that matter anyone
I shouldn't have read the reviews at all. I threw away the one of the worst children's books I have ever read. I would have returned it if it was that expensive.
