Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
4.5 / 7.0
The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
5.0 / 7.0

A beautiful story about choosing to see things on the sunny side, regardless of the actual weather. The transformation of the colors (and weather) from gray to vibrant shows the transforming power of positive thinking!
