About a month ago my I was challenged by Stephanie to read one book this summer, just one book. I grimaced, I groaned, I tried to get her to let me read a kids chapter book… she refused. So I sucked it up and went to the library grabbing a book that I thought I could make it through, some how. When I sat down to read something magical happened. The book-worm that has been resting dormant for over 20 years (whom I thought had died) sprung back to life.
I read one book, followed by another and then another. Something I had assumed I no longer enjoyed became the perfect past time. In less than a month, I had read several books and today I want to share them with you!
I was recently asked if I would like to review a book. My first initial reaction was, “Who, me?!” I still consider myself a baby blogger and let’s face it, I am. But I quickly dismissed my surprise and jumped at the opportunity.
I couldn’t pass it up.
An Ozark Tale
Seeing this is a children’s book, I thought who better to help me with this review than a child?
“The Waterlady” is an enchanting tale of a mystical mermaid like creature who lives in a pond. She often finds herself lonely wishing for company. One day she just happens to get her wish.
After reading the book I asked Marissa what she thought. She smiled and said “I like it a lot”. I then asked her what she enjoyed most about the story. She told me she really liked the waterlady because she reminded her of a mermaid. She also enjoyed the water ladies visitor, that was her favorite part.
This is definitely a book that a child with a whimsical imagination can get swept away in. That said, I believe my copy of the book was kidnapped by a certain little girl. It is safe to say that she loves this story and I am sure plenty of other children will to.
Just last week now she asked me if I would like to add a giveaway to this review. Of course I would! I mean what good is a review without a giveaway, right?!
This time of the year when I think about sitting down to read a book I imagine something warm to drink in my other hand. If that cup is red, that is even more exciting. She is supplying the book, I’ll buy your cup of coffee all you have to do to win is enter!
See you tomorrow for my Friday 5!
