DyAnne DiSalvo-Ryan's books include Grandpa's Corner Store, A Castle on Viola Street, City Green and Uncle Willie and the Soup Kitchen. She lives in Philadelphia. When I was a girl growing up in Brooklyn, New York, the oldest sibling of one brother and two sisters, I never thought that my art was among the very best. My mother and father recognized my art ability early on. It was because of their sensitivity that I eventually began to acknowledge my talent and enjoy my life as an artist

I was a little worried when I first leafed through this book that it would be too lengthy for my first graders. After reading through it, I think the students will be able to sit through a read-aloud while remaining engaged with the story. The book introduces children to the concept of homelessness/working poor without burdening them with too much detail. I plan to incorporate the story into lessons focusing on “empathy” and finding ways to be helpful/contribute. I like the simplicity of the story but also the fact that it is not at all judgmental in its tone. I know I have students who have eaten at our local shared meals program and receive food through our food bank.

This is a great little story for kids to help them understand the greater needs of the communities we all live it. I am a volunteer at our local food pantry and we use this as part of learning/discussion session we have with families that come to the pantry to learn about what we do and why we do it. It helps open up a discussion with children about hunger and service. Love it!

This book was excellent and written so children can learn and come to an understanding about poverty is all around us. The only negative about the book, the uncle seemed a little contrived and the story was just a wee might too long. Other than that, I was glad I purchased the book. Highly recommend.

This is a great introduction to raising awareness in children for the less fortunate. It doesn't detail individual struggles, but instead focuses on how proactive outreach can improve the lives of many. My five-year-old loves this book and I'm looking forward to putting these lessons into practice as he gets older.

The book was very appealing to the second graders who heard this story.... very realistic too... We had just had a Walk for the Homeless, and this story was a wonderful way to let children see a soup kitchen in action. The story is realistic, and at their level... I will donate a few copies of this book to our school so that other teachers can have it in their classrooms in the future.... Wonderful purchase at a good price!

Overall I really like this book. I have two complaints. First off, it's hard to read without getting a little teary eyed. But I'm like that with reading sad things. And my second issue is that it's a little boring for young kids. My son is able to sit and listen to much longer chapter books, but always loses focus with this one. A great book to teach about helping others and gently let children know that there are people so poor they may not even be able to buy food, a concept very foreign to my son.

Love the subject And illustrations but the actually story could be a little more interesting. My favorite part: when the boy realizes the guy who collects the recycling in his shopping cart is actually ok to speak to. Best for early to middle elementary age, possibly older.
Wonderful story and got my 7 yr. old thinking about how to help out.
