    Very powerful message about respect for ones elders and the love of a grandchild for his grandfather. The story is told from the POV of a basket that carries a family through life's many cycles. I was deeply touched.

    It's a fable told from the point of view of a basket. The moral kind of comes out of nowhere, but the narrator is a woven basket, so what do you expect?Some of the illustrations took my breath away, others are just weird. If you like stories about baskets, from baskets, this is the book for you, I guess.

    Young's creation with gouache, pastel and collage sparkles with light as the story is told from the vantage point of the doko or basket; even the reflection of a child in the eyes of his father at the end of the book are luminescent. The basket straddles generations, whether in carrying a child, kindling, a wife who did not survive a drought, the dowry of a new bride, grain, and for a moment at the end of the book the now-elderly man who began the story was a baby in the basket. The basket enliv [...]

    The basket has a voice. With the setting of the story in China, the basket lives through generations of work in the fields, and of carrying babies, harvest, and the elderly to the temple steps when they become burdens. When the young boys grandfather is about to be carried to the temple and the basket discarded by his father, the boy cries and pleads to save the basket so he would have something to carry his own father in when he is elderly. This realization brings tears to the father's eyes and [...]

    A creative folk tale that follows the life of a basket as it passes through the generations of a Nepalese family. I enjoyed the story but it was the illustrations that stand out as superb in my mind. Young's perfect combination of colors is present in all of the book's images, and I love the way that he gives the basket personality on every page.

    The story took a whole different turn from what I anticipated. Somehow the story of the life of a basket becomes a moral of how to treat grandparents. In the end the story doesn't flow well or make much sense.

    Emma
    Great illustrations in Young's unique style but . . . everyone dies and an old man is almost abandoned.

    This was such an interesting book in terms of perspective and in terms of content!  Firstly, the narrative is told in first person (from the basket's perspective), yet the illustrations serve a third person's perspective.  And it's so cool.  Of course, I always think Ed Young is the master of super cool stories that go straight to your heart, but this story is one that I won't easily forget, especially with its themes surrounding family, age, and time.Review cross-listed here!

    This is a meaningful fable about how to treat others and how to reconsider our own sense of value; the beautiful illustrations add shades of pathos and humanity. Highly recommended for readers of all ages.

    This is an interesting tale about life in a rural area, told from the perspective of a basket. The author mentions that the story is based on a Nepalese folktale, but that it's a story that has been passed down "in the oral vernacular" in other countries, too.The narrative is engaging and tells of the ups and downs, joys and sorrows of a family. The gouache, pastel, and collage illustrations are stunning and complement the story very nicely. We really enjoyed reading this book together. interest [...]

    This book was okay. It was not one of my favorites. I had a hard time reading the story from the baskets point of view. I would of rather the story be told about the basket. I had to read it twice before I actually understood what happened. It was about a basket that has been with this family through generations. It has carried all kinds of things for the family including their children. In the end it carries the grandpa back home so that he would live and not be left at the temple to starve. I [...]

    I, Doko is a fable told from the point of view of a basket. The basket speaks on everything it sees around it generation after generation. The moral of this story deeply surrounds the importance of paying respect to elders.I would use this book along with others to explain the types of stories. This book could also be used to show a different culture. It would be a good example for students to see that people from this culture show love by passing on items.

    Ed Young's interpretation of a Nepalese traditional tale is told through the voice of a basket, an essential and utilitarian member of the village family in the story."What one wishes NOT upon oneself, one burdens NOT upon another" is messaage from the sixth century B.C that precedes the story's launch. This offers a rich opening to related tales and traditions from other cultures and invites discussion about the universality of the golden rule.

    Matthew
    Told from the perspective of the basket, or doko, this story chronicles the life of a family through three generations culminating in a moment when a son must choose between what his village tells him to do and what he knows is right. It is great for a lesson in ancient cultures.

    I really liked the lesson in this book and the way the story is told. Doko means basket in Nepalese. I, Doko is first-hand account of a baskets passing from generation to next using an interesting point of view. The basket being very old recognizes the value and respect that our elders deserve.

    What one wishes not upon himself, one burdens not upon another. -------Kung Fu Tze. Sixth Century B.C.Beautiful book with gorgeous illustrations with an important lesson to learn, from a basket at that!

    This tale from Nepal emphasizes respect for one's elders.

    This story follows three generations of a family as told from the perspective of a basket that has been useful to them. The art was rendered in gouache, pastel, and collage.

    Very popular with my Nepali students.

    Written from perspective of the basket (doko). Good for discussing narrative perspective, aging, tradition and family.
