Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
5.75 / 7.0

I love that this book goes through all the different emotions, showing them through each illustrated fish on the page. :) It’s a really simple, beautiful, and fun book, and I felt like this one had a lot more emotions than just “happy” and “sad.” I actually found this one in a bookstore and paid full price for the last copy that had a dent on the cover because I wanted it in my home library. :)
