Review: The little girl and her shadow

Little Girl and Her Shadow blog tourAbout the book:
Having the cutest dresses, the best toys, and the softest bed isn’t enough to make this little girl happy. All she ever does is whine and complain. Finally, her shadow decides to teach her a lesson she’ll never forget! With a gentle reminder about the value of gratitude and friendship, this delightfully illustrated picture book will charm children and parents alike.

About the author:
O. K. Reade lives in New York City with his son. He is a mathematics teacher by day and a writer/cartoonist by night.

From Reidhead Randomness:

A message of appreciating all that you have, and being happy is the overall message of this WONDERFUL book!  I think most of us can relate to the grumpy little girl, once in a while.  This book will help remind everyone that there is more to life than 'the house as big as the earth,' and show us to be grateful for all that we have.  The whole book is written in rhyming verse which makes it fun to read.  A great message is shared, and when I read it to my 6 year old daughter, she commented that we should all be glad for what we had......and she also said that 'shadows can't run away from you.'

This is a great book to get your child (or you!) out of the grumpys!  We all loved it!

I received this book in order to write my review, however all opinions expressed are my own.
