Even though I am well beyond the target audience for Sammy Steals the Show, I thoroughly enjoyed the beautifully illustrated story and feel it has valuable lessons about humility and the price of getting what you want that transcends all ages.
If there is anything bad about this book - it's that I think it would be totally epic as a pop up book with sound chipping, but I will take the version I got no problem until that comes out <3
One night after the two of them watched a talent show on television Sammy got a brilliant idea to enter the Talent Show at the Sydney Opera House. But he did not tell Lisa. In fact Sammy decided to get some of his Dove bird friends to help him find his way to the talent show.
Me being a grandmother I don't think this was such a brilliant idea! How about you? What would Lisa think of Sammy leaving his cage and the safety of the apartment? After all he has never flewn outdoors much less with any of his friends. But he was so excited and just knew he had the talent to win. No doubt he wanted to surprise Lisa.
The author has given us a good lesson to be learned. Think before you act. In my opinion if Sammy was keeping it a secret from Lisa then he must have known deep down that it was not a good idea. Or did he?
You will fall Iin love with Sammy as much as I have or more. Maybe you connect with this story as you remember one of your own bird brain ideas!
The illustrations depict the story so well and will stir everyones imagination into this wild and crazy bird brain adventure with Sammy.
I have read this book before but this time I read it with a whole new perspective.
I highly recommend this book.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book fromMotherDaughterBookReviews for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review it is my honest opinion.
Review: The illustrations by Noelle Giffin are somewhat subdued for a picture book. Although well-drawn and lively, I would have liked to see more bright colors, especially for Sammy. The story moves along at a good pace for little ones. I think this book is better for reading to smaller children than expecting them to read the book themselves. There are words used such as "deftly" or "gaggle," which the picture book audiences may not understand, but I congratulate the author for not dumbing down the language. The book has a nice flow and even if a few words are not understood by themselves, the context and illustrations will carry the attention and focus of the ones reading or being read to.
The age-old story of being content where you are is felt at the end of the story, but it is nice that the author writes this in a non-preachy way. I love happy endings and I feel that kids, especially younger ones, still need happy endings in books. I would definitely recommend this book to children of all ages who love to read or to read to others.
I received a free digital copy of this book in order to write this review. Special thanks to Mother Daughter Book Reviews for allowing me to participate in this Book Review Blitz.
The writing is fitting for the intended age group, and just in case young readers find a few things they don't know (a cockatiel or the word mate), there's a short description in the back of the book to help them along. The illustrations are colorful, enjoyable and sure to draw kids in as they accompany Sammy on his journey, and the plot is simple but exciting enough to make readers want to find out what happens in the end.
There's a few very obvious and important messages in this book, which kids can never hear enough about. I was a tiny bit surprised at how accepting Sammy was in the beginning--a bird who understands the world around him perhaps a little too well. And the ending hit me a little off-balance, not that it's bad--the message was great! But it seemed a little too nicely packed in some ways. Perhaps because it doesn't follow the normal, expected ending (but I won't say more so as not to spoil it.)
Still, this is a cute story with a lot of good things, boys and girls are sure to enjoy.
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
