I’m reviewing a kid’s book today! I’ve also got a few actual book reviews planned (yay!) for the near future. Book reviews are one of my favorite things to write, mostly because I adore reading. I’ve fallen behind on reading in recent years and I’ve determined I need to blame it on the internet (and my inability to avoid the internet) because I always feel like I don’t have time to read but in reality I would if I avoided the internet. I really should budget my web time better. But I digress from the topic of today…
Terry Treetop and The Lost Egg is a children’s book written by Tali Carmi. I received an e-book free for this review and I downloaded it to my iPad using the kindle app. The book isn’t very long, but the length of the book immediately dissatisfied me. There’s a possibility that it wouldn’t have been so bad as a paper back, but it just felt awkwardly long as an e-book. There also could’ve been more pictures, however this could easily be remedied in paperback as well.
As far as the writing, I like the plot, although it’s not terribly original. I liked the spunkiness of the story though, and the main character is easily relatable for kids. The plot involves Terry Treetop finding a lost egg and his quest in finding who the egg belongs to, including asking a myriad of animal mommas if it belongs to them, and each animal explaining how she takes care of her eggs, and how it couldn’t possibly be hers. It’s a sweet story, I just wish it was more attention grabbing.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
