Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
6.5 / 7.0

This book is full of meaningful truths and lessons suitable for every age. I love that it encourages kindness, love, empathy, equality, and hope. This book is all about being the best you! Plus, the illustrations are beautiful and whimsical.

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.25 / 7.0

The illustrations in this book are beautiful, and definitely my favorite part! The message about empathy is lovely, but felt pretty abstract for a children’s book and while this is one I’d definitely pull out if I was working on empathy with my child, it isn’t one I’d want to read again and again and again for the story.
