Reviewed by Cheryl Schopen for Readers' Favorite In A Little Goes a Long Way, written by Ashley Mills Monaghan and illustrated by Vivian Nguyen, Fin, along with his adorable dog, Sausages, tries his best to help his family out by doing some chores. From giving the dog way too much food to putting way too much laundry detergent in the washer, Fin quickly realizes, with the help of his parents and grandparents, that a little goes a long way. I have read quite a few children’s books recently, and I have to say that this book is the cutest so far. There was something about it that just had me smiling from ear to ear throughout the whole story. It could be the fact that it is written in a perfectly simplistic way that children will understand and relate to. It could most certainly be the fact that the illustrations were absolutely adorable, unique, and incomparable. It could also be the fact that even though presented in a simple way, this story teaches a valuable lesson of conservation and love. Then again, it could be all of the above. I just absolutely loved this book, and I don’t have one single negative thing to say about it. I read this book on my computer, but I will definitely be purchasing a paperback copy for my daughter, who needs to learn the lessons taught and who will completely love the illustrations. With a super cute story and fantastic images, A Little Goes a Long Way is a must-read. Ashley Mills Monaghan and Vivian Nguyen make the perfect team, and I hope to see more from them both. I will gladly add this book and any others created by them to my daughter’s growing library.
