Sundays are for book reviews
Emmett Elephant’s Love by Diana Katheryn Plopa
☆☆☆☆☆ of ☆☆☆☆☆
I like reading younger books sometimes simply because they are relaxing. They do not take long and this book was a very short read. It was impressive that the books was also illustrated by the husband of the writer and he did a very good job. I was not sure what to expect and walked away both happy and sad with this book.
Of course reading always makes me happy and the books introduces you to Emmett and his family rapidly. It also takes a turn to a warm approach on a hard topic for many, death.
There are a lot of books that approach death, but not many for children, and this eases into the subject and brings it full circle. I am not sure if all children will understand, but I know that many will see it a different way after reading this book.
5 of 5 stars for this wonderful book with a cute character and fun illustrations!
