As an early educator, I am always on the lookout for children’s books that are engaging and educational; but as a mother and children’s author as well, I’ve learned that these types of books are not always easy to find. I applaud this author for taking an important global topic and breaking it down into a short, entertaining story that children of all ages can understand and relate to.
Many in the children’s book industry claim that rhyming books are taboo and only authors such as Dr. Seuss can successfully publish them. In my nearly twenty of years of teaching little ones, I can attest that this is simply not true. Children adore rhyming books and remember them much easier than those without rhymes. This author has eloquently proven this untrue as well. His rhymes are fun and engaging–everything a children’s story should be.
With its powerful message, colorful illustrations, and fluid writing, this book should be on the shelf of every parent or caregiver of young children.
