Here are the girls’ review of the book:
Like: There are sparkles on the cover and it’s about getting a second chance.
Dislike: When she was crying because she didn’t have enough money because she spent it.
Recommend: Not recommended for my friends because they are older, but recommended for little kids.
Like: I like the sparkles, the star, and cotton candy.
Dislike: Her being excited about everything but missing the show.
Recommend: No, because it’s my secret.
Notes from Melody and Emily’s mom:
I love that this book is not just a story, but that there is a life lesson taught using an example that kids can really go through in real life. My favorite part of the book is that throughout the book, there is a star on the page. Kids are to use that star to determine the emotion that is being felt during the certain point in the story. It is a great guide for parents who do not naturally stop in the middle of a page to talk about what is going on.
