Fun and Positive Pinkalicious Story for your Young Reader!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pinkalicious: Fairy House (I Can Read Book 1) (Paperback)
We received our pre-order copy of Pinkalicious: Fairy House yesterday and it is already a big hit. It is a very happy story that combines two of my 5 year old's favorite things, Pinkalicious and Fairies. It is a Level 1 "I Can Read!" book that was an easy and confident read for my kindergartner with a few challenging words to improve reading skill. The best part about the story was that it was very positive throughout. Some of the Pinkalicious books have had some negativity to them where there was a dislike for pink from some mean girl types that Pinkalicous ran into that didn't really make for a fun read. Not in this story. It is all about having fun trying to catch a glimpse of some fairies who sprinkle fairy dust in the yard to make the flowers grow. Pinkalicious even gets help from her little brother Peter and they work so well together building a fairy house and play yard to entice the fairies to visit. The best part was when my daughter stopped reading in the middle of a page and said "That is a really pretty house!" about the house that the two kids were building for the fairies. It was a completely unprompted and out of the the blue comment which really is a testament to the fine artwork in the book. She really enjoyed the book, which is the most important part of all.
Long story short, the book has a positive and fun story with a happy ending, great artwork and is a great reading book for young readers. One of the best Pinkalicious books so far. Five Stars. Highly Recommended.

My husband read this book with my four year, and she enjoyed it. Her only disappointment was she expected to see pictures of fairies and there was none.

I can see that, but I see this book as a more realistic story that your child can actually mimic in real life. Some of the other books like Goldilicious and Emeraldalicious are really out there and have no basis in reality. They really are complete fantasy stories. This one is a little more down to earth. That being said, the premise of the original Pinkalicious wasn't exactly realistic with everyone changing colors. Just different styles I guess.
