So guys, this will be my very first Children’s Book Review. I figure, since my twins love books as much as mommy does, I should include them in my fun book blogging adventures! Thanks to the lovely ladies at Get Red PR for sending them this adorable book.
My boys loved this story, and what made it extra fun for them, is that the St. Louis Arch was featured in the book, and this is my boys favorite landmark when we drive into St. Louis for the day.
The illustrations were beautiful, the story was adorable, and the moral of it was perfect for little minds. Also teaching kids that it’s okay to be different, to not be the same as everyone else, is a great message for little kids! I am so glad I got to share this with my little guys. I think since receiving it, we have read it 15 times, and we only got it yesterday!
He could be a home anywhere, because home wasn’t a place. Home was a feeling, a smile on your face. Home was friendship and singing and a full happy heart- it was sharing good meals and where you hung up your art. – Susan Schaefer Bernardo
