Five Children and It Book Review
The story gave some important lessons about being careful what you wish for (to be cliche) and also the dangers of wanting the material things in life. The children learn that what is really important is their family, just the way it is. The children grow wiser with every wish and are better for having met the straight-talking sand fairy.
I was surprised to find out that this book was published in 1905. Even a hundred years later, the lessons learned by the children can apply to those of today, especially regarding the desires for things and money and beauty. I recommend this for an entertaining read.
