Book Review: Carrot by Vanita Oelschlager
My son is a huge fan of cats...ok not so much a fan as much as you could say they are an obsession for him. He could go on and on about them all day long. In fact cat is one of the few words he knows how to spell/read. So to say that we read a lot of books that feature cats is an understatement. So that's why I was happy to receive this ebook from Netgalley*.
The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous. Bright colors and wonderfully drawn scenes helped keep my son's attention. We both enjoyed the simple rhyming schemes and my son was easily able to keep up with it. In fact he even began to give a few rhyming words of his own.
This was a cute story encouraging children to realize that just because one person (or cat) seems to have it better that doesn't mean that they do. You should appreciate what you have in your life and not compare it to others.
This was a 4 out of 5 read.
* I recieved a free copy of this ebook from Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion
** This was read with my special needs son who is severely learning disabled.
