What an honor to be the first children’s book review posted on a new review site, Debbie Young’s Reading Life! Debbie Young is not only an author herself but an active member of the Alliance of Independent Authors as Commissioning Editor of their Author Advice Centre blog and shares marketing advice on her blog, Off The Shelf Book Promotions.
This is one of the most in depth reviews I’ve read and I really appreciate Ms. Young’s insights and comments on all aspects of Wally the Warm-Weather Penguin. My favorite line from the review highlights the way the book can “encourage readers” and notes: “As well as providing a jaunty rhyme that makes the tale tootle along nicely and which will encourage readers gaining confidence to read the story independently, the book provides interesting facts about Wally’s new friends.”. As a children’s book author, I can’t think of a better compliment than inspiring children to read themselves!
