Fun Singing and the Kindness of Strangers

5.0 rating

This was such a fun book to read aloud to my little kids, who wanted to know the tune to the song in the story. They were so surprised that the music was included and headed to the piano to play it and try to sing, just like Sammy would have. Sammy is a hard worker who helps a stranger, and is helped in return.

Sammy’s mind wasn’t on his work. He was thinking about something far away from this corn patch—about three things, to tell the truth. The first thing was a pair of new shoes that cost two dollars. The second thing was a pair of new blue britches that cost one dollar. The third thing was a blue-and-white striped shirt that cost one dollar. Four dollars in all. Sammy sighed deeply. Even his best shirt and britches were so patched up
they looked like a crazy quilt.

Sammy’s dream is to have new clothes for Last Day of School, for he has a special part in the program! He will sing and play his banjo in front of all the people.

Sammy is a heartwarming tale of a little boy who dares to dream, works hard to accomplish his goals, and is blessed with kindness from others.
