In one of many understated moments, "For six nights in a row, Alice's father read her the book at bedtime, and then after her light was turned out she would read it herself by the light of the moon." The gentle illustration of the father reading to his child brings back memories of my father reading to me and of my husband reading to our daughters...and expectations of my sons-in-law reading to their children in the near future.
Book-loving families will understand and love this book.
He is a sensitive 'lil guy and has many feelings for stories and their characters, enjoys making analogies when reading, etc., and this book would address all of those things.
The book was recommended for a year younger than his nine years, but...for 3 years, when preparing for book reports at school, he has stated many times that he wants to be a children's book illustrator. In fact, that was his choice when his class had career week. He had to place items in a box that served as clues when questions were asked by the other children. He used fabric paint on an natural colored apron and wrote a book title on the apron and lots of smudges with the fabric paint, a pouch of colored pencils, and a sketchbook. No one guessed!
I thought the illustrations in The Lonely Book were different to many of his books, and the story would spark many feelings. He has enjoyed it so very much that I am glad I made the selection. He has read it several times to the 5 year old sister.
