    The format of the storytelling and the illustrations are interesting First, the depictions of Little Sister and presenting single shots of her actions almost like a comic book, but without the filmstrip blocks kicked me right back to the Seventies with their spare, elegant style The storytelling follows two types of tracks At the bottom of the page, a traditional group of sentences moves the story forward The rest of the page shows bits of the action spread out with bubbles of text that enhance the information at the bottom I enjoyed the sing song style of Little Sister s efforts as her stepmother and stepsister loll around the cottage work work work, wash, wash, wash, and dig, dig, dig Sometimes, the bubble dialogue was too much like the down below story I would have preferred exploration of vocabulary or adding to the st...

    Personal reaction This book has many of the elements that you would see in a classic fairy tale Like Cinderella this book has a little girl with dead parents that lives with her stepmother and stepsister Then there are 12 brothers with magic powers that controls the seasons I think that his book contains many really good elements of fairy tales and can be used to teach the different motifs I was also drawn to this book because of its Czech culture Read aloud This book would be good for a lesson on motifs and the elements of fairytales The book contains a stepmother and a stepsister, as well as magic, and the use of the number three Independent reading Students that enjoy fairytales will really enjoy this book If the students are familiar with other fairytales they will be able to see similarities between other fairytales.Literary elements The characterization of this book is really important because you can see how characters can be very similar in different stories I th...

    I am not sure what to think about this I guess the main theme here is there s always going to be a lot of work to do, but be polite and kind to others anyway or karma will have you ending up dead in a snowbank The author s notes said that this was originally a Slavic folktale and I get the impression that this story emphasizes culturally important traits and life lessons I think this is one of those stories that would have meaning if I knew about the culture it derived from I wouldn t use this as a story time book Instead, I would think this would be useful in a multicultural lesson, where similar stories from different cultures are compared Also, on a personal level, I thought the illustrations were very cute and spot on, but I felt they were fighting with the text for prominence, ra...

    I very much like this rendering of the of the Slavic folk tale, both in how the story is retold by Beatrice Schenk De Regniers, the split drawings of the storyline and daily activities, and the quality of illustrations by Margot Tomes.Age Range 6 8 yearsGrade...

    This is a Slavic version of the folktale Diamonds and Toads While it is similar in some ways to Cinderella, it is not No prince only one stepsister no fairy godmother Little Sister is mistreated by her stepsister and stepmother but she remains kind So stepsister decides to give her an impossible task gather violets in the middle of winter She is able to accomplish this feat with the help of the Month Brothers but only because she chooses to be kind It s a lovely ta...

    It started out similar to Cinderella, but it is a folk story similar, but also delightfully different I love the new version with it s colorful, but vintage looking illustrations.
