Shelby Herman in currently working on the next adventure of Shimmer the Glowworm and I can’t wait to see what inspiring message she will in weave into that story.
This was a cute, fun book with a wonderful positive message. It immediately drew my six year old in, and I was smiling as I read the story out loud to her. It is so nice to come across books like this, that have short, simple messages that are easy for kids to understand. The press release stated it was aimed at children in grades 2 through 5, but honestly I felt like it probably wouldn’t be that interesting to kids over grade 3. Even though it was beautiful and fun, it definitely had a much younger ‘feel’ to it that may not be attractive to the older end of the age range. Overall, there’s nothing you can criticize about this story, and the author – who is trying to promote connection, both to other kids, and to the kids’ innerselves – definitely took a huge step toward her goal with this book.
