It's Okay to Be a Pumpkin by Daisy Mellifont & The Snake Who Baked a Cake by S. Afrough and S. Hough - Book Tour & Review

It’s Okay to Be a Pumpkin

by Daisy Mellifont



Summary:

Children are often concerned as to what others make of them. This book aims to reassure them.


In a neglected walled garden, where the sun warms every part of the ground throughout the day, there lives a community of very different characters - each one special in their own way.


Hopefully, children will be inspired to grow characters of their own!


Daisy has worked with children all her life and often sees the world through their eyes - their magical world.


A keen horticulturist and fine vegetarian cook, she is hoping to encourage children to grow from seed, cultivate and cook.

My Review

It's Okay to Be a Pumpkin is a cute children's book with a good message. It shows kids that even though everyone is different, they also have something that makes them special and unique. The book uses the different types of pumpkins to showcase how each one is different, and what makes each one unique and special in some way. One pumpkin feels like she is too shy and quiet, but the other pumpkins think she's great because she's friendly and makes them feel at ease and comfortable around her. We all have flaws, but even with those flaws, we all have something great and wonderful about us that people like. A skill, a personality trait, etc. Everyone is awesome in their own way.
Easy to read. Fun, colorful illustrations. I enjoyed it.
5 stars!

My Review
The Snake Who Baked a Cake is a silly children's book with a rhyming scheme that will make it easy for young readers to follow along with and enjoy. The story follows Jake, a snake who desires a cake. So, he bakes one. But after he finishes decorating his cake, it starts to tip and fall. Does his cake survive, or does it go SPLAT?
This book is adorable, with fun illustrations. It's a cute, simple story about a snake who wants to eat cake. Who wouldn't love that?
5 stars!
