A must read for every child, especially those who stutter. This exquisitely illustrated story shows how being a friend can make others feel good about themselves. Every child is special in their own way and like many of Artie Knapp 's other stories, this humorous tale shows that you can do anything if you believe in yourself. - Kristin Garrison, NIE Manager, The Cincinnati EnquirerArtie Knapp 's knack for identifying the things that worry children shines in Stuttering Stan Takes a Stand. His characters, displayed in especially lovely illustrations, and their interactions, are those young children will recognize from their experiences on playgrounds and in their classrooms. Embedded in this appealing story are important messages about human kindness and acceptance of challenges. This is a book I will be recommending to educators everywhere. - Kathleen Carpenter, Editor, Teachers.Net Gazette
Hehehe... kali ini buku pilihan saya memang buku anak-anak. Fabel setebal 32 halaman ini menarik perhatian saya pertama kali karena covernya. Ada binatang raccoon disana. Saya punya ketertarikan yang aneh pada raccoon. Tapi setelah membaca sinopsis dan endorse yang ada saya makin ingin membacanya. Seperinya ada sesuatu yang lebih dari sekedar cerita si tupai dalam buku ini.
Kira-kira dimana ya saya bisa mendapatkan buku ini di Indonesia? :D
