I enjoy being a Book Reviewer who doesn’t accept requests to review books. I either get books I’m interested in reading myself or I enter giveaways and I hope I win the book I’d like to read/review. This time I won this book from a LibraryThing giveaway and the following is my honest opinion.
I also find it refreshing to be able to just sit back in my reclining chair and allow my inner child the opportunity to read a book and then tell me what it taught of it. In this book, Tovi and his penguin friends decide to spend a day at the beach where they found a wonderful location, underneath a tree so it would give them shade from the hot sun. The only thing they did not expect had been the ocean tide coming in and separating them from the rest of the beach by surrounding them with water.
While the story is quite entertaining for its early beginner readers it’s also unsuspectingly educational as well. This is one of the best ways to reach these young minds for they can better relate to the characters in the book and the lesson/information being given. In this book, which is part of a series of Tovi’s adventures, readers are given information about tides, and are also taught about disappointments/sharing.
The wonderful illustrations on each page help its readers visualized the story and is why I’m giving this book 5 STARS.
