I liked the story beause it was a really nice story and their dad came home at the end. It is nice because it shows the family helping each other. I also like the pictures because they are water colors. They bring out the color and they are really exciting.
My favorite part was when the dad came home and they were all happy. It is my favorite part because the mother feels better because she got her medicine. The family also got food and more oil for the lights.
My favorite character was Abbie because she kept the lights burning for her dad. She was very responsible and nice. She helped her mother and her sisters get along without their dad. She really kept the family together while the dad was gone.
I think that second and third graders would like the book because I really liked it. It shows how a family can work together.
