My thoughts: Wonderful children's books of the past that have endured are those like Wind in the Willows and the Peter Rabbit books. The charm of story, language, and illustrations endears them to children of all ages. In the Theo books we see this charm brought to bear with a re-telling of the Biblical story of The Good Samaritan. You know how the story goes: a traveler was beset upon by robbers and hurt terribly and left by the side of the road. Some "do-gooders" passed him by but were too busy to stop and help. Finally, someone passed by and stopped to help - but he was not the one most would expect to render aid. The timeless story is told about a little Shrew who was "set upon" by the mean Weasels and left hurt by the side of the road.
Others came along but were too busy and engrossed in their own business to stop and help. But help did finally stop.
I recommend this delightfully charming book for families and libraries everywhere. Learn more about this series and DVDs of the stories here.
