This book was very interesting. You worried for the character and attempted to think of ways in which he could be saved, while reading the book. Parents and children would enjoy this book and it could also teach children to watch what they wish for, as well as to stop and think when it comes to making very important decisions in serious or dangerous situations. I recommend this book just for an entertaining purpose, and/or to teach children the importance of thinking and choosing wisely despite your feelings at that very moment. Reading this book to or with your children would present the opportunity to teach them a certain lesson regarding the importance of thinking; it would help get the point across.

Summary

Add a Summary

This is the story of a donkey who collected unusual pebbles and one day he stumbled upon a red, shiny pebble that made any wish come true. When Sylvester was approached by a hungry, mean lion, he panicked and wished to become a rock. He suffered for a month until his parents had a picnic and stumbled upon the rock and the unusual pebble.
