Ann's Amazing Adventure
by Jeanetta Brancaccio
Illustrated by Sara Petrous
Edited by Anne Christiano
genre: Picture book
I received this book from the author. This is an honest review with my personal opinion of the book.
First off I have recently received several self published books and have been impressed by their quality. Kudos to those that self publish. Secondly, I get a kick out of the nice bookmarks that go with the books. This one came with a silly band attached to the bookmark. My kids ran off with that as soon as they saw it!
This is a sweet little story. The pictures remind me of paper dolls. I liked the story. It has a very positive message. Always have hope and stay positive. Ann has to adapt to the loss of her little girl and then finding a new little girl, but her life is different than what she had. Change is constant and Ann shows a positive image of dealing with change.
I did find the story a little long and simplistic. That said my girls, age 7 and 9, loved the book and have read it several times.
