I recently read the book Estie the Mensch by Jane Kohuth • illustrated by Roseanne Litzinger which was mentioned on The Picnic Basket. This is the review that I gave the book (I am not being paid to give this review):
This book is a great book for young children. It deals with a little girl who wants to be different and how people accept those who are different. It also would be a great introduction on appropriate behavior in different situations. With the great illustrations, it will be easy to hold a child’s attention. The word “Mensch” is also introduced and can lead into a discussion about other cultures and religions along with tolerance of those who are different than us. I would give this book a 5 out of 5 rating.
