Book Reviews: Edition 25

Book Reviews: Edition 25 focuses on Little Gwen Meets Big Gwen, My Very First Friend, and Different And Amazing : A Story Celebrating Diversity.

Little Gwen Meets Big Gwen

Little Gwen Meets Big Gwen is written by Gwendolyn Copeland. I didn’t like it. And, I know that’s short and blunt, but that is the opposite of this story. I found it to be rather long-winded, and it just didn’t hold my attention.

While I like the premise–little Gwen dreams about her future self and later becomes her, but Big Gwen seemed to go on and on about what she does and about so many details about Little Gwen’s life. I think that had it been a little simpler, it would have been more enjoyable and better suited for children. 3/5 stars from me.

My Very First Friend.

My Very First Friend is written by Kristina Sheldon, illustrated by Jillian Dister, and edited by Megan Barnes.

This is an adorable story about a child growing up with the family’s pet dog. There are some formatting issues, but other than that, I have no other critiques of this book. 5/5 stars from me.

Different And Amazing : A Story Celebrating Diversity.

Different And Amazing : A Story Celebrating Diversity was written by Kai-Nneka Townsend and A. Xavier Johnson, illustrated by Swapnil & Nirzhar.

The idea for the story is a good one, but it was lacking in development in a few places as well as having some issues with the text being hard to read.

Townsend and Johnson jump right into the narrative without giving the reader any indication of who the characters are. The story then flies by, and it’s jolting when Za-za wakes up from a dream. They also skip over what the turtle has seen.

Overall, the story felt rushed. It gets 3/5 stars from me.
