(#Sponsored: I got this book from FlyByPromotions to read with my family and give my review.)
I received this book the other day and was at first questioning if it would be too young. I read it first and then my son, who is 12 wanted to read it to his Dad before bedtime. I think I ended up liking the story more!! What a great way to let kids know that just because something isn’t perfect, doesn’t make it any less special. In today’s world where everyone is looking for an easy way to look better, look younger, etc. it is nice to see how having a bit of imperfection actually makes you better and is something you don’t need to hide. I just love how the story is portrayed and how it can pertain to anything in life, and not just a stuffed animal.
The book is very well written, and the illustrations by Breezy Brookshire are amazing!! I sure wish I had 0.5% of that talent!! Gorgeous artwork and a story that will melt your heart.
I asked Dylan what he thought of the book and he said, “I liked it, it tells us that what is most important is on the inside”. I loved hearing that. A book with a moral footprint is definitely one that I hold high and keep for later years. Great job Angie!!

This was such a great book.
Great review you covered it all, loved it 🙂 xo
Sounds like a great book!
This book sounds wonderful and thought provoking, so important for a children’s book for all who read it. The illustrations on the cover are beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
Looks like a very sweet book and I love the positive messages! Will have to get this for my grand daughter. My favorite toys as a child were books (and still are!)
Love that the author has a background in Psychology like I do. Also love the idea of the book with a moral.
I had a cabbage patch doll that I dragged everywhere!
My Mom tried to make me have one of those – but I loved my Hot Wheel General Lee better!! ha/ha
It sounds like a sweet book. My boys love reading.
Aww. I miss that age where I could read those books to my kids. At almost 15 and 12, those are a thing of the past. So glad that you liked it!
