To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A book from my childhood that I have shared with my own children and now my grandchildren. A special edition too with a truly heartfelt introduction by Dolly Parton. This edition should grace every child’s bookcase.
LOVE this story, and the artwork is beautiful, but the book binding is not very good. You can see the stitching in the center, and the pages aren’t securely bound to the book so it’s already falling apart.
I had a previous edition for my kid, and the whole family loved it. However we misplaced it and I got this new edition without realizing the illustrations are 're imagined'. The new pictures are so cold, detached, they don't convey the passion of the toys to get going. Get previous edition.
This was my absolute favorite book as a child. I read each year to my library students in grades K-2. So when I saw the 90th Anniversary Edition, I had to have it. Loved! Loved! Loved it! Can't say enough about it. Superb illustrations are woven with the story from our childhood. A must for every parent, classroom, and library.
Beautiful book and story. The main part of the traditional story (going up the mountain/“I think I can”) was the least emphasized part of this story which is long and wordy. However the message of persistence was still central and it’s very beautiful and a nice story.
