We have this checked out from our library right now and it is a wonderful book. The illustrations are simple, expressive and funny. The plot is familiar: Brontorina doesn't fit in, she's not the right size. With two good friends and a loving, sensitive and flexible adult, Brontorina is able to silence the peanut gallery and find a way to follow her heart.
is a memorable story of confidence, perseverance and kindness; all important components of success. (There are lessons to be learned from the minor characters in this book, too!)
You might just find yourself gliding through your house with the little ones behind you calling out "
!" and if you do, rest assured you're not the only one...
*Make sure you glance over at your little listeners when you get to the page where Brontorina has a huge tear in her eye...the looks on their faces will melt your heart.*
