My parents purchased this story for me years ago on a visit to the United States.They saw it and knew it would be a book I would cherish. As a school teacher I have read this book to my students (5years -13years) many times and still feel an emotional attachment to the main character each time because of my love for animals. This story has been read just for enjoyment, as an introduction to units of work,, as a big book to develop language and reading skills and to show children how although we are different we are still able to make friends and get along with each other. I now purchase "Stellaluna" as gifts. I highly recommend this story for children and adults alike.
