Little Pear was one of our read alouds in our Core B curriculum. It is a fun, whimsical book telling the adventures of Little Pear, a 5-year-old Chinese boy. It is a good book for teaching lessons to children and to also see adventure in others. The writing style was not bad but also not my favorite. I enjoyed hearing about children in another culture and being reminded that children are generally the same all over the world. Jamey seemed to enjoy the stories in the book and enjoyed talking about a couple of them later on.
I personally would give this book 3 stars, but Jamey would likely give it 4 or 5.
