    This is the story of Lily a young empathetic girl who is first afraid of the poverty stricken and likely homeless neighborhood paper man then notices his condition and with great generosity figures out how she can help and with a bit of help from her parents implements her plan People who meetknow Lily will feel proud of her and like herI do have to say that while I did really like this book I also feel like a curmudgeon Scrooge and a kill joy wrapped up into one One of my pet peeves is helping someone who needs much help than they’re given I guess it’s a bad attitude because I know every little bit helps And the paper man Ray gets not only the very useful gifts that Lily gives him but the feeling of being cared about and that’s probably at least as valuable a thing to receive The illustrations are perfect big and colorful and expressive Everyone’s facial expressions are spot on perfectAt the end Ray reminds me a tiny bit of how Santa Claus would look; it’s a stretch but I saw it I came close to tears on a few occasions and in that way this reminded me of a Patricia Polacco bookThis would make a wonderful book to read for a group story time with discussion and between parent and child or children and young readers will savor reading this one on their own too

    This picture book is great for a lesson on poverty Lily the main character and her story with the homeless man makes it easier for children to relate and understand her Just like other children she is at first very scared of the homeless man But towards the end of the story she sets a goal to help him She teaches a lesson on how we can make small changes to help someone struggling with poverty

    Really engaging and age appropriate book about homelessness It easily passes my I can read it ten times aloud hmm new acronym? Acritta? bar and brought me to tears the first time I read it to my 3 12 year old The illustrations are lovely I don't my daughter yet understands the class issues or exactly what homelessness is but the first time we read it she was spurred to ask interesting uestions about why someone wouldn't have a home and uncomfortably for us grown ups why they don't live in all the extra space we have in our houses

    I love to see stories that challenge children to think and to feel grateful for what they have and I can see that 'Lily and the Paperman' would do just that Full of points for discussion in the school classroom and within the family Lily's sensitive contemplation of the paperman and her attempt at resolving the situation is heart warming and educational Adult readers would appreciate that this is indeed not the end of Ray's misery but it is an excellent starting point for children The accompanying illustrations are perfect A lovely story

    Lily and the Paper Man is a great introduction to a lesson on Socioeconomic status Lily is a little girl who has a lot on her mind When she sees the homeless man who is selling newspaper she is very confused I am sure that many children her age have felt this way in the past especially those living in the city Lily asks her parents about the situation and really wants to help the man At the end of the story Lily gives the homeless man clothes This gesture of generosity is a great thing to teach to children it not only teaches kindness but the idea of community as a whole
