This was the third children s book I read today to be sure I d chosen good books for gifts for children While not quite as good as the other two I rounded up from 4.
5stars , it is still a beautiful book It seems there really was a circus ship in the late 1800 s that broke up during a storm off the coast of Maine and at least one animal made it to a nearby island This story expands on that story, having many animals make it to an island, where, after a bit of a rough start, bond with the residents who hide the animals when the circus owner comes to find them The illustrations are nice and very colorful, and the story is heart touching I think I need to read children s books or at least those that show people being kind I read this one to my superb little friends, Brielle and Zach This book is so fun I loved the illustrations and the rhyme scheme is perfect.
When a circus ship crashes the selfish circus owner saves himself instead of his animals A nearby 1800s seaside town in Maine is quite surprised when the exotic animals start showing up At first many of the residents are very concerned for their safety but when one of the circus animals makes a brave rescue the entire town has a change of heart and starts plotting how to save the animals from the mean circus master when he comes looking for them.
Such a fun historical fiction story Of course, many of these animals would eat the town in real life, but their actions are clearly not true to life Kids can definitely cheer for circus animals getting freedom and should enjoy the rhyming text Oh, and the arrival of the circus master is quite funny and provides a nice hidden picture huntsee if you can find all of the animals on that spreadoh, and Mr Magee and Dee too while you re at it.
they must have traveled back in time to visit I m quite convinced that some of the Deckawoo Drive characters are direct descendants of this town If you re looking for a whimsical story for animal lovers, this may be their next favorite book.
I thought there d be about them being on the ship That early part is very brief There is a cool look and find section.
A fun story about circus animals that get shipwrecked Though all the pages are really delightful, one in particular has a full page spread of hiding animals Your children will enjoy seeing if they can find them If you re still not sure, watch Jack, age 6, tell you why it s so great Ages 4 Cleanliness someone infers another man is daft There is a picture of a lady s bloomers and corset hanging on the line Like my reviews I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too These reports give a complete break down of everything in the book, so you ll know just how clean it is or isn t I also have Clean Guides downloadable PDFs which enable you to clean up your book before reading it Visit my website
