Calling all hamster lovers

I just finished reading The World According to Humphrey, and I found it very entertaining. The story is narrated by Humphrey, a sensitive, caring, and creative hamster who lives in an elementary school classroom and believes that “you can learn a lot about yourself by getting to know another species.” Humphrey learns about humans and the humans he interacts with learn valuable lessons about themselves. He goes home each weekend with a different student, and he makes big changes in every family he visits. His adventures are funny and touching, and they include escaping a nosy dog, helping a grumpy man recover from an illness, and showing a tv-obsessed family that they can learn to enjoy other pastimes. This is a wonderful animal fantasy and I strongly recommend it as a beginning chapter book as well as a great family read-aloud.

Note:  The CPS Library also has the following Humphrey adventures:  Friendship According to Humphrey,  Trouble According to Humphrey, and  Surprises According to Humphrey.  Check them out and make friends with this lovable furball.
