Lexie was ready to sit down and eat dinner her mom had made her special meatloaf. But mom noticed Lexie did not have her shoes and socks on when she came in the house. Her mom made her go back outside to get her shoes and socks so she would have shoes to wear to school tomorrow. Lexie also had to tell her two older sisters to come inside for dinner. Out she ran in the cold and rain! As they ran back to the house Lexie slipped and fail hitting her head causing her to scream and cry. Her dad ran outside and scooped her up.
When she was able to stop crying her mother realized Lexie still did not have her shoes and socks. Mom made her go back outside and get them. The neighbor followed her home and told Lexie's mother if the kids did not stop leaving trash and such all over her yard they would no longer be able to come to her house and play on the trampoline. This called for a family meeting and a lecture on keeping the planet earth clean.
After Lexie went to bed she had a hard time going to sleep. When she woke the next morning the girls ran outside and straight to their favorite playground. It had a woodsy area they loved to play in. They found an odd looking gigantic tree that had the appearance that you could walk right through the middle of the tree. So they held hands and walked through with their dog Tay-Tay following them. It was very dark and scary and they never came out the other side. When it got saw light Lexie knew exactly where she was, they were in Lexie World. Each of her sisters had their own worlds also. There was a Bella World and a Maddie World. Their parents encouraged the girls to use their imagination and never made fun of the girls when they told them about their worlds. But this was real! Why are they in Lexie World? Now looking at Bella and Maddie they look like some kind of super heroes and come to think of it so does she.
The girls meet Unicorns, monsters and gnomes while exploring Lexie World!!!
Were they suppose to rescue someone? That is what super heroes do! Surely there must be some kind of quest!
The author has a beautiful and heartfelt imagination. Brilliance of colors in the description the author gives of the plant life and the inhabitants of Lexie World has been brought out in an explosion of vibrant colors by the illustrator's interpretation of the author's story. You can tell by Kimberly's writing that she has a love for Planet Earth.
This story is a fun way to teach your children to respect not just their space but that of all Planet Earth. If we take care of our world it will be a much better place for generations to come.
I am looking forward to reading the other books about "The Three Lost Kids".
I highly recommend this books for educators, teachers, librarians and children of all ages.
I received a free digital copy of this book from Evolved Publishing for review. I was in no way compensated for this review it is my own opinion.
