In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
Birthday Triplets – Granny Rosie’s Amazing Magical Day by Kelly Tooman, illustrated by Lynn Tooman-Cser – When making a magical recipe a terrible mistake happens and the recipe book falls into the mix! However will this be resolved? Will there be a birthday celebration? The birthday triplets are introduced and life won’t be the same again. Loved the illustrations for the triplets and their characters, happy, supportive, and positive characters who encourage you to be your best.
Lighthearted story packed with rhymes and wonderful pictures… this will be a fast favorite birthday story, bedtime story and more. I see this as a book many children would request to have read over and over. Additionally, since there are lovely illustrations that pack in many details and interesting characters, I know many children will retell the story to themselves turning pages and pointing out different details each time. I personally enjoyed reading and reading this story and closely looking at all the beautiful illustrations as well. There are two things that really popped into my mind when I read this book: 1. Enid Blyton- the writing style and storyline reminded me of her books. 2. Rainbow Brite- tv show I watched when I was young, the illustrations threw me back to those shows. Didn’t mind those memories at all!

About Pull up a chair, it’s a Saturday Book Share: I’ve had many books I review that I just want to feature. Simple and easy, celebrate a new book encounter. So that’s what Saturday Book Share is about for me, celebrating books! Perhaps some days I’ll share the book with a short reading of a portion. Or perhaps other days I’ll just share a glimpse of the book.
