I recently received an outstanding review from Olga DAgostino, aka, Mrs. D. She is a talented award-winning children’s book author. Here is the wonderful review she wrote on Amazon and Goodreads of Louey the Lazy Elephant.
“A great story, which teaches children to overcome difficulties and obstacles!
Grab a cookie and get ready, because you are in for some fun and learning! Louey the Lazy Elephant is one of those beloved books that instantly put a child and parent in a good mood. It will make parents smile, because at some point in our lives all of us have dealt with lazy kids. It will make children laugh, because many of them will recognize themselves as the lazy elephant. This sweet, bouncy story will make them think about their own behavior and learn something good. During the trip of the little adventurous elephant, they will learn about the consequences of not following their parents’ rules.
The story teaches a few good lessons: Not everyone wants to be your friend. Not everyone is as helpful as your mom. Not everyone is sympathetic to your problems. It will also teach children that they should usea good judgment in any situation. There is no need to panic if you are lost or do not know all the answers. In addition, it will teach children that there is always a way out and someone who is willing to help. And if you help someone, they will repay you with kindness.
As I followed Louey’s adventures, I was delighted to see how easily the lazy elephant transformed himself into a caring boy who had learned his lesson. Simple and well-thought-out illustrations give a special charm and personal touch to this lively story. I read it to my nephew’s six-year-old daughter. She fell in love with the adorable Louey. As a children’s author and grandmother, I was glad to see her giggling. When we finished reading, she said: “Louey was not lazy, just tired.” Well, that makes sense too. Janice Spina has created a wonderful read, providing great messages for children and grown-ups!”
Louey is available on Amazon and CreateSpace. Please pick up your copy today to see what positive life lessons your children will learn.
Thank you, Olga, for your wonderful review and kind words of support.
