A Beautiful Short Story for Kids of All Ages
on 11 June 2017
I've had this book on my TBR shelf for a few months now. I bought it to complete a Goodreads challenge but after looking at it several times as I was browsing my bookshelf I was reluctant to read it. I'd briefly flicked through it after buying and noticed that a) it was very thin - around 125 pages and b) the writing was quite large. After looking through the blurb I noticed that this was a children's book. And my heart sank. It wasn't going to fulfil me, I thought; it won't be my type of thing. Well, lordy, how wrong I was! I loved it.
Yes, it is for children and it is very basic in its writing style and all those things but the depth of story for such a short piece was fantastic and although it was a little far-fetched (rightly so; it is a children's book after all) I caught myself smiling throughout the hour it took me to complete.
Will I recommend it? Absolutely. Children will love this. And if you're a big kid like me, you adults will too. Buy it for the kids and when they're asleep, read it yourself and marvel in this beautiful little story.
