When I received the invite to review Green Bird: The Adventure Children Book illustration, by Mark Ansel, I was more than thrilled for 2 reasons: Firstly, I have a four year old daughter who loves to listen to stories and look at pictures, and this book was age appropriate for her. Secondly, the book is actually an electronic version, which is what I prefer over hard core copy, as they are easier to access anywhere, anytime and do take up much space. So, without wasting anytime, I accepted the invite and very soon I was sent the electronic version of the book on my kindle account.
This book is about a little green bird who lives with his pink squirrel friend in the pink forest. One day, the green bird decides to find his real family and ventures deep into the world to find them. On this journey, full of uncertanities, he meets many different green creatures but none of them are birds. But, he is not shaken by his failure and keep of his spirit, determined to find his family one day.
As I read it to my baby, I was amazed to see how engaged she was throughout the time. She was captured by the illustrations and every time the green bird would meet someone new, my daughter would figure it out and jump in excitement to share it with me. It was great to see her captivated by the story!
I find it to be a good and age-appropriate read for 3 to 6 years old. It is a simple story with good illustrations. As, I already said, the story keeps the child engaged throughout and stimulates the mind to think and anticipate what is going to happen next. This book would make a excellent resource for parents to make their children understand the importance trying hard and never give up to reach your goal. Moreover, It helps the children understand facing challenges is very important in life as it prepares you to face the world. One thing that I did not like about this book was the ending. The story did not end the way it should. I believe children books should never end on a cliffhanger. There should always be a happy ending to such storied as this is what children love in the end!
Overall, I enjoyed the book and loved the use of simple and compelling language! I would give it 4.5 stars!
