Chizzy's Topsy Tale (Littlest Angels) Paperback – November 13, 2008
The superb text by Donna Shepherd and illustrations by Kevin Scott Collier make this book a "must have" for the younger set. It gives young children the message that they should help out their friends and to also be aware that parents worry about them. I give this book a high five for the cute storyline, the perfect rhyming text, and wonderfully colorful and kid-friendly illustrations. - VS Grenier, editor-in-chief, Stories for Children Magazine

Our Butterfly Homeschool read this awesome and beautiful book (and other kids' books by Donna Shepherd) a long while ago, when our oldest kids were about 7 and 6. We love Chizzy's Topsy Tale because the illustrations are absolutely amazing and the lessons in the story are even moreso. We also love the rhyming because it really helps the kids to get into reading for themselves more.
If you are a grandparent or a parent, I highly recommend that you get this and other books by Donna for your little loved ones.
Even though this book was a gift for my oldest daughter from the author, this review is my real, authentic opinion.
