Oct 15, 2009"Steve, what a delight this is! While my own children are grown, and grandchildren, I think, still some years away... the love of children's literature I had in my own childhood, renewed in family storytime during the childhood years of my own children, has stayed with me. Your charming story reminds me why. It is a tale with meaning, a message of value when there seem so few for our children today. But, also, it is good fun to read. The rhythm and rhymes flow with ease, nary missing a beat, none forced, all pleasing and pertinent to the story line. I think your good message, Steve, is very clear, and oh yes, if I had little 'uns to buy for at this time, I would certainly pick this one up. You might even consider adding a note in it for parents, suggesting how to use the book to discuss various types of bigotry and racism with their children. You have a terrific picture book here! I wish you the best of luck with it." Zinta " This is a great story. I don't have... More > children to read this to, but I would. The pictures are painted quite clearly and your message is clear, as well. It's not difficult to understand the moral here, but it's not necessarily 'in your face' either. The story seems to be complete at the end of this, but it could be fun to see what other adventures Al and the kids could have. With this piece as it is, you've got a wonderful presentation of your characters, their problems, and their resolutions. The parents are quick to come to the aid of the little alien, which is nice and what anyone would hope for, of course." Viallate " I think that is is a beautifully done piece. Unfortunately, race are still an issue with some people. I think that delivering the message directly to children is the best way to change the world. Imagine a society that feels no fear or malice towards others because of skin color or dissability, poverty or differences. Such a noble undertaking this is, and one that has the best sucess if we start educating our children about it now. Good work. I think that you have done a wonderful job with this, and I wish you luck." " Hi Steve, Although I have already read and commented on this story, I wanted to comment again, since now I had more time and I have read it to my six year-old daughter a couple times now! She loved hearing it both times, as well as 'tried' to read it herself! I am also planning to take it to school with me on friday (I read at schools, and am reading one of my stories to 1st and 2nd graders this week, but I am going to 'slip' this story in as well."
