Hello, I’m back with another children book review.
After months not requesting any books via netgalley, I finally decided to start requesting again. However, this book can be an exception as I’ve been auto-approved by the publisher since last year.
I really enjoyed reading the book for it has a clear background, which helps to emphasize the letters and the illustrations.
The story is interesting. I believe kids won’t have difficulty to understand the issue. Even more, there’s high chance they can be relatable. They may name some kids that acted like Arthur. Or maybe they can see themselves as Arthur.
Either way, it would be great to have kids read this story. It would let them learn the proper way to make a new friend. It would also taught them to not easily judge someone. However, it might be more suitable for kids that already enter a school.
What do you think about this book? Have you read it? Or, do you have other book recommendation?
Kindly share your thoughts on the comment section 😉
Much love, Zelie ❤
