My Review
Sully's Glow is a fantastic children's picture book that has a bit of a rhyming scheme to it when
you read it. It tells the story of Sully, a sad boy who lives in a house, and he just happens to give
off a special glow. It's this glow that guides Harpi, a sad eagle, to discover her own special
energy. Between Sully and Harpi, they help the other animal friends who discover them learn
what makes them unique. They help each animal find their inner confidence and happiness,
and once they do, they all shine as brightly as Sully with his glow.
I really enjoyed this children's book. It's fun. It's colorful. It's got a great message.
It's a story about learning to be happy with who you are while still tapping into your
own special potential. Perfect Parrot learns that she's a good singer.
Greedy Giraffe learns that sharing is caring, and helping others is an amazing thing to do.
And Cranky Croc learns how to be kind to others while also discovering his own courage and
sense of adventure.
Kids will love following each animal on their own special journey. They'll also like thinking about what
makes them unique, and what they might be good at so they can use that ability to make the
world a better place. And parents will find the inspiring message to be uplifting and positive.
5 stars from me!
