"Though of interest to academics (but mercifully without much academic jargon), the book's principal audience will be parents, who will find the content practical and accessible. And who can argue with Reese's conclusion, "Stories sustain us, they teach us, they protect us, and they join us to others"?" - Booklist, April 2013
