Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2–During a sleepless, hunger-filled night, a young Kenyan girl is visited by a winged giraffe that takes her on a journey across Africa. Flying over mountains and rainforests, the child appreciates the beauty of her country. When the animal cryptically notes, “there are also places where the rainbow sometimes loses its colors when it sees that children are no longer smiling,” Violet wants to find a solution. The giraffe encourages her to ask prosperous countries to be generous and giving, and adds that “tickling everyone” could also help solve the world's problems. Tears of laughter then “watered the land, and everything turned green, filled with light, and filled with life.” Uyá's stylized oil paintings of landscapes bathed in orange and red radiate warmth. Unfortunately, this dreamlike tale is full of exclamatory sentences that feel forced (“The plants and animals are amazing!”; “I want you to laugh for real!”), and the humanitarian theme is hampered by peculiar fantasy elements.–Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canadaα(c) Copyright 2013.

Format: Hardcover
"Life is Beautiful" is a beautifully rendered book. The illustrations are imaginatively rendered in brilliant hues of oranges, blues and purples. And the idea of a winged giraffe showing Violet the world around her is creative and intriguing. The writing is perhaps a little too much on the optimistic side, but the theme of people helping each other is well presented.

The concepts here are a little more advanced, so even though children under the age of 5 will probably enjoy the illustrations, older children will most likely get more out of the story.

A song to nature and solidarity. This picture book highlights positive aspects of life, at the same time as issuing a call to generous hearts to help those who need us the most.
