I had no expectations going in. MC is a widowed, 40-something, mom of a teen. There's ups, downs, growth, humor. It's not great lit; but, it was perfectly readable and pleasant.
#HollyJollyReading Day 4: Adam has moved from a presumably tropical country with lots of animals to a new city filled with skyscrapers and snow. Eventually, he finds friends who helped him build, not a #snowman, but a menagerie of animals that is reminiscent of home. Truth be told, I am a little on the fence with this one, as I found it somewhat preachy and didactic. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-cb8
The Carrot Seed is an old story but is just as relevant as today as it was over 60 years ago. The boy in the story was told his seed would not grow but he pushed through what those around him said. The cute story accompanied by the easy on the eyes art style made for a great childrens book.
