Review-"Little Blue"

"Little Blue" by Gaye Chapman
Published in 2009 by Little Hare Books
36 pages, Ages 4-8

This book was borrowed from the library for the purpose of reading/reviewing.

My granddaughter and I both loved this book.
The words of the story are encased on each page, leaving the largest part of the pages for the illustrations.
The illustrations are breathtakingly beautiful, the dreamy colors of watercolor blues and greens are used throughout the story. Great attention to the details of rain drops, bubbles, hidden pictures in the trees, cupid bow lips on the children and their sweet facial expressions.
The story is of a little lost girl that meets a little boy, each share of where they live. It is a simple story, the ending is a delightful twist.
This book was first published in 2008 in Australia, but according to Amazon it was published in 2009 (I am thinking this was the date for America.)

Blissful Reading!
