Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 1999 February)
PreS-Gr 1 Herman uses a controlled vocabulary of less than 45 words to retell the familiar Aesop's fable about helping others. McCue's realistic illustrations fill the pages with color and effectively enhance the text. Beginning readers will be able to read this independently after hearing it just once or twice. A good choice, especially for youngsters who love stories that show the smallest creature saving the day. Sharon R.
