“Perfect Perfect Picture Book” Friday

Yay I’m back again reviewing more beautiful Picture Books. Sorry I haven’t been here for awhile but you know how it is with family, and with summer in our part of the world the outside beckons and so the laptop keeps being left inside untouched for days at a time. But I’m back now so lets get started.

Tell Me a Story Rory

Written by:  Jeanne Willis

Illustrated by:  Holly Clifton-Brown

Published by:  ‎ Hachette Children’s; Books

Ages:   1 – 3 years

Theme:   Friendship, story-time, love

 Opening Lines:   There was once a lion who slept on a little girl’s bed.  The lion could not sleep without a bedtime story.

Synopsis.    From Amazon   Rory the lion can’t sleep without a bedtime story and the little girl never forgets to tell him one. But one day the girl – not so little now – goes away. If Rory tells his own bedtime story will it somehow come true? Will it bring his little girl back?

Why I like this:  This is a beautiful timeless story about friendship, love and the power of stories. Cute story with big soft illustrations showing youngsters that things change but true friendship and love is always there.
