Brief Summary: From Amazon-“Lachie MacLachlan, the generous hero of this enchanting tale, is the exception to the rule that the Scots are a thrifty lot. In his “wee house in the heather,” where he lives with his family of twelve, he welcomes to his hearth every weary traveler who passes by on a stormy night. “There’s always room for one more,” says Lachie, and how his grateful guests say a wonderful “Thank you” provides a delightfully warm and tender ending to this hilarious tale of kindness.”
Ideas for using this book in classroom or library – I think this is another picture book that could be used with other disciplines like music. This would also make a great book to use for a read aloud because of the rhyming and cadence.
Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it –The very simple watercolor and line drawings balance the lyrical text.
