KidLit Book Reviews
Isabella loves reading and has decided that she wants to share some of her favorite stories with our readers. If you have never seen our home video channel than you may not know that she can be a little diva, enjoying the spotlight. Therefore, I will be filming her reviews (posting onto our Blooming Brilliant channel), and sharing my thoughts in written form here on the blog. We will include the video in the post, but we would also love for you to subscribe to our channel. Are you ready for our first review?
Sofia’s Dream by Land Wilson
Sofia’s Dream written by Land Wilson illustrated by Sue Cornelison was a story that Isabella decided to read for Earth Day, but as she states in her review, this book is excellent for any time of the year.
What is Sofia’s Dream about?
Sofia’s Dream is a delightful story about a little girl who becomes friends with the moon. After a while, the moon asks Sofia to come to visit him. While it seems impossible, she takes a dreamy adventure to see the moon when he is despondent. She gets to see his point of view and realizes why he is so sad. It turns out that the Earth isn’t being taken care of properly. Sofia becomes determined to help take care of the Earth and share what she learned with others.
This story is beautiful with a great message to take care of our planet, the Earth. It is written in a lovely soothing rhythm, perfect for reading at bedtime. It is also a great story to be read to a class and grow awareness of the importance of taking care of our planet. The illustrations are beautiful; we automatically recognized Sue Cornelison’s artwork from the American Girl Bitty Baby series. Her characters are always adorable.
