Three Perfect Peaches: A French Folktale Reviews
Bought this so that both sets of grandchildren could have a copy since its one of their faves, A big hit!
How can this book not still be in print? It's glorious! It is one of the funniest fairy tales I've ever read. There's a king kissing a horse's behind, a queen kissing a clever peasant boy, poop, good manners, a magic whistle, perfect peaches, a herd of rabbits, and more! It's magical and good humored. We've read this book a countless number of times. It is always funny and always makes us laugh. This book is one of my family's favorites and I'm so glad this is book is part of our family's collection.
I read this book, as a read aloud volunteer, to a couple of third grade classes every year, They think it's hilarious, as do I. I bought a copy even though I usually check it out of our local library, because I stumbled on the fact that is out of print, and so it's only a matter of time before the library no longer has it, or it gets replaced by an "improved" version. Get it while you can, is my advice.
we love this book and were happy to find a copy for my daughter's Kindergarten teacher as an end of the year thank you gift after my husband and I had read it to the class one morning.
This is a great story.
This book is so good, I read it to my husband. He thought I was being a little silly, reading him a picture book, but ended up really getting into it and laughing out loud at the climax. This book does contain "broad humor" so, although you could read it to a younger child, they wouldn't catch on to many of the subtleties. The message that you shouldn't be rude to people still comes through. I believe that taking fairy tales out of our modern curriculum has had the unintended effect of eliminating the teaching of values. The way your face widens to a smile when the simple country lad teaches the pompous king a richly deserved lesson is an indication that the resolution is satisfying and pleasing even to an adult. It just makes you feel good, like all is right with the world, and the message is universal - you get what you deserve. This book is an excellent addition to any elementary or middle school classroom, as well as your own home. Don't let your family miss this one!
