Reach & Read: A Squiggly Story

A Squiggly Story by Andrew Larsen

Love this book! It is a great, inspiring (as much as little kid books can) story and actually gives me ideas of how I can encourage my son with writing, creative thinking and play in the future, when he writes with implements, not just eat them or scribble on the table.. It features children that do not seem to be Caucasian (certainly not the cover character, but not profiling beyond that), an encouraging older sister (love to think that this was me, but I know I was bratty-at times), collaborative class mates and a fun story that is seemingly built on the fly using pictures and some letter. I hope more little squiggles stories will be coming out, and maybe an activity book someday??

I have added this book to the Children’s Book Shelf page where right now a list is growing with books featuring diverse characters or stories. Learn more about why on my Bee is for Books post.

I received a electronic copy of this book to review but I was not financially compensated, nor required to say something positive, in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my experience and observations while reading this book.
