Staff Reviews


An old apple farmer is surprised one day by the appearance of Take, a strange little man who tells the farmer to take things. The next day, the farmer is surprised by Give. While the farmer is unhappy when only one little man is around, what will happen when Give and Take are together? A story about sharing wisdom (and pie) is enhanced by Raschka's emotive illustrations. ~ Reviewed by Marika McCoola

— From Give and Take

Description


A clever story of greed and goodness, and the art of finding the in-between, from two-time Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka, creator of the New York Times bestselling A Ball for Daisy.

Watch the farmer’s ear.

Now watch the two small, clever fellows in pointy hats whispering into it, first one, then the other.

Give and Take. They cannot agree.

Listen now to the farmer talk back—and, in this story of apples, pumpkins, pigs, and a final surprise, he just might get the better of both of them.
