Let me just start off by telling you that I have children. Three of them, actually. I am starting this review with that because I am no kid rookie. I have a grasp of kids and what they like most of the time. I actually do have one kid who is very fond of reading, but the rest gets a kick out of it too. So I sense like I’ve been vulnerable to readers, story tellers and artsy things for youngsters quite a bit. I was tremendously fired up to get my hand on this book and guess what? It absolutely went beyond my expectations!
First off, it’s easy on the eyes. The cover is simply alluring. The colors are scintillating and amusing. The illustrations in the actual book are vivid and full of vim and vigor. It’s really quite clever and fun. Secondly, this book tackles about friendship, adventures and moral lessons for children. It does it in a way that I believe is both intelligible to kids and adults. I read through it first myself, in fact. The story is about two best friends, Carl and Emily. Every day is like a new adventure for them as they roll about the city finding fun, and excitement. The day takes them to lots of places that they love, and they love being together until Carl finds out that Emily is moving far away which made him very sad. If you are one of those parents who buys books for your children, then this is undoubtedly a book I imagine you would think highly of. It’s beautiful, it’s educational, and I think it’s really a lot of fun. I just can't wait to read more books like this from Jason Dagley. This has become a family favorite!
