Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite "Sabrina's Buttons" by Terri Kelleher is a fun story for young children. The use of bright and vivid colors throughout is sure to maintain the interest of the child, and one of the primary purposes of the story is to help children develop skills of observation. But this story is also a multi-functional one as each section of the tale makes some reference to time, to help teach children the concept of the passing of time. In "Sabrina's Buttons", young Sabrina spends a day at her grandmother's house, helping in the garden. Yet every time Sabrina does something, she loses a button from her sweater. The sweater is a very colorful one, and each button is a different color. The child being read to then has to locate each missing button, which is hidden in plain view near some other roundish object of the same color. Some of the hidden buttons are not easy to find, even for me. Children who are able to locate them all will be very observant indeed. This storyline is well-conceived, and in one simple story a number of concepts are taught. This author has written a very useful but entertaining, interactive book of learning, which will be of great value to young children as they prepare for their years of school. I very definitely recommend this for parents, grand-parents, God-parents, or anybody else who has a small child in their life. In addition, every pre-school in the country should have at least one copy of this book on hand, to help its charges gain an edge over their future classmates.
