This children's book was the perfect mix of humor and values. My girls were learning to take care of a "pet" without ever realizing it. Every day Riley and Carly diligently took care of their egg setting an example for any child reading this book. The writing was simple and straight forward making it easy for even my four year old to grasp the concepts. It was an instant hit.
This book was well illustrated and easy for kids to follow. It gave subtle clues on what healthy meals were as well as showed great examples of a healthy lifestyle. It also showed children that they should be helpful which isn't always seen today.
Overall I have no complaints about the writing. It was a children's book written by a twelve year old and I don't know that I wrote that well at her age. The story was age appropriate and entertaining. If you need a good story to help your child with bullies this is the book for you. I'm giving it 4 stars.
