  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandy | 2/14/2014

    " a strangely dark tale for children. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Celeste | 2/14/2014

    " Another one of those book that enriched my love for reading. This story had all children wanting a special talent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie Graham 47150 | 2/12/2014

    " My students laughed so hard when these Chinese brothers used their extraordinary gifts to save one of their own from unjust punishment. The brother with power to stretch his legs was their favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda (Miss Greedybooks) | 2/8/2014

    " It's all in how you look at it.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 2/1/2014

    " I've always totally loved this book. I didn't realize until a lot later that it was really racist- the plot centers on the "fact" that all Chinese people look alike. It's still good, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynnell Donnelly | 1/26/2014

    " This is another book I remember from childhood....I remember the teacher reading it to us. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vivian | 1/16/2014

    " This time-tested favorite is as much a lesson in keeping promises as it is of using one's wits. Use exagerated dramatic actions to spice up the story telling even more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 1/9/2014

    " Oh my fav as a child and even now "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janelle | 1/4/2014

    " a great story about a strained relationship of brother brought together in time of struggle and fixing their relationship; lol jk i still don't get it . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Asha Seth | 12/27/2013

    " Who hasn't read this tale of the five Chinese brothers with extra-ordinary powers? Now, we prefer, X-Men and Spider-Man and similar other super-heroes, but in childhood days listening to even the silliest tales like The Five Chinese Brothers used to be so exciting to acquaint with. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marzie | 12/15/2013

    " Scary to a kid I thought back then. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jon williams | 12/14/2013

    " This was my favorite book in kindergarten. It may even be the book responsible for motivating me to become a reader. I loved the story and I love reading it to my kids now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 12/4/2013

    " Clever brothers! I haven't read this book in years. Now I wonder why the judge and townspeople didn't notice there were 5 brothers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisbeth | 12/4/2013

    " I wish I could swallow an ocean. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Whitney | 10/24/2013

    " Racial stereotypes aside, it's a good story. If was I was going to read it to a child, I'd definitely have to explain why this portrayal of chinese people isn't okay. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Len | 10/23/2013

    " While this is something of a classic picturebook-and I liked it as a child , it has ugly stereotypes in it. I would choose an updated version by Kathy Tucker,The Seven Chinese Sisters or The Seven Chinese Brothers by Margaret Mahy to read to children today. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz | 8/22/2013

    " Children love to act out this folktale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marah | 8/5/2013

    " I had always liked this book but it never occurred to me how it could be perceived as racist until I read it as an adult. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lesley | 5/24/2013

    " This was one of my favorites when I was a child! I'm still waiting for the movie adaptation! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ivan | 5/23/2013

    " I loved this book as a kid - the first brother swallowed the sea - I rememered that part, but the rest was like reading it for the first time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen | 3/7/2013

    " 3.0 stars. I remember reading this as a kid and liking it because it was unlike most of the other stories I was reading. A fun little Children's book. "
