    "I didn't like this book at all. It doesn't teach kids a good ethical lesson. It's about a worm that keeps jumping between jobs because he can't work hard enough and gets fired. I don't want my kids learning from this book."

    "Fiona's luck is an enchanting book for children. It is almost fable-like in that in provides a moral. It is a great read for St. Patrick's Day and provides a modern edge so children can really relate. The pictures are gorgeous and fun. Kids fall in love with these characters, and I can see why, as it's easy to put yourself into the role of Fiona as she takes on adventures. It's a delightful book."

    "This is a picture book oriented around military familes. I would imagine this would be great for the child of a service man to help them understand what their mom or dad does for a living. I found some of the selections to be a little dubious, however the book was largely cute and I'm told kids really enjoy it."

It was a good lesson for her to read about and we read it often. I hope now she will learn more and we can read more books about this later on."
