My review: The Little Girl and Her Shadow by O.K. Reade
I read this to my six year old niece and she gave it a thumbs up. She likes likes the story and the pictures. It surprised me when I asked her if she liked it by showing the thumb up.
The story is short and sweet. But it has some many points in it. Like we can decide our attitude. Things don't make us happy for long.
It also has a good rhythm and it rhymes too. It makes it fun to read and listen too.
The pictures are bright and cheery. The expressions on the little girls faces capture the feelings as well as the words do.
I would read it to another child or let a child read it to me again without getting fed up with the story.
I was given The Little Girl and Her Shadow by Cedar Fort Publishing. In return I agreed to give a honest review of it and be part of it;s blog tour.
