    5. PB 9This is one of the best stories I ve read so far Papa s kindness teaches all of us the lesson that a little kindness does go a long way and we should always be thankful or what we have I would definitely use this book not to read to younger children but to teenagers as well I think it s very important to remind them to not take things for granted and to be thankful for everything in their lives I absolutely loved this book and think it s for everyone to read for it teachers everyone a very v [...]


    6. Not only does this book represent a part of the Mexican culture, but this book also demonstrates a strong theme of unselfishly meeting the needs of other people Children have the opportunity to learn parts of the Spanish language, as well as character qualities of an admirable citizen and community Fiction


    7. A nice, simple story about the importance of giving to others and having faith that the universe or God will provide what you need A little too religious for this Atheist, but a decent book for talking to kids about whether Papa made the right choices and what they would have done in the same situation.


    8. I very much enjoyed this story and the illustrations that went along with it It taught very many valuable lessons about faith and generosity, which would be very valuable to children I would most definitely use this book in the classroom.


    9. Miguel sees the results of his father s faith and generosity when, although his own family is facing the oncoming winter with threadbare clothing, a leaky roof, and no firewood, Papa gives away the pastries he has baked.


    10. This story is just delightful The theme of generosity is old as the hills, but I really enjoyed this take on it, along with the lovely illustrations I m almost giving this one five stars, not quite there, but darn close.


    11. 3.5 STARS Fable set in Mexico about the power of kindness to others I could have done without the religious references, but the story was enjoyable and carried a positive message.


    12. This book is about a boy named Miguel His family needs money for warm clothes, a new roof, and a fireplace to get them through the winter, but they just can t afford it Miguel hopes that his dad will sell a lot of his pastries to make enough money, but in their village he ends up not making a lot because he gave them away to people who needed them When they enter a new village Miguel soon realizes that kindness is better than money.
