Too cheem for a preschooler.

Children's Literature Project

No reading level information available. It is recommended for ages 7-12 (Grades 2-6).Illustrated by Julie Freeman The king announced that he wanted new, useful devices, so the iron smith makes wondrous fish. Prince Hoshyar takes charge in creating more fish, while Prince Tambal uses a seemingly useless magic horse the wood smith created, to fulfill his heart's desire.

All of us so different and so beautiful.


I would give this book 4 stars. This is a multi-cultural book that deals with inventions and magic. It talks about following your hearts desire to do what makes you happy. You can use this book to show children that as long as you follow your dreams you can be happy. I would recommend this book to children in 3rd-6th grade.
