Summary: Old Newt likes to tell stories about the creatures who live in the wood. One such is the story of Willy Woodchuck, who wants to do something that woodchucks don''t instinctively do, climb trees. Discouraged by his mother and most of the woods' creatures that he meets during his travels, nonetheless is determined to accomplish his dream for he wishes to see the New World that Squirrel sees every time he scampers up a tree. Only Little Ladybug offers affirmation: Mister Woodchuck is determined to
climb a tree and there is nothing wrong with having determination. The others, including his mother, think that he is foolhardy. With the help of a firemen''s ladder, Willy is able to climb his perfect tree. However, reaching this goal is not what the didactic story is really about, for Bill Reynolds has written a refreshingly simple and charming story about the value of friendship and the importance of community. In addition to increasing their vocabulary, children reading the story will learn, as did Willy, that sometimes you need help doing what you want to do and ...before you can have friends, you must be a friend. and finally, A friend is a good thing to be. Illustrations by Gaynor Aarabi enhance the delightful story. Here Comes Willy is a fun story for parents to read to their young children and for children (7-9) to read themselves. Review by: Dr. Dottie McEntyre, Ed.D.
