Kindness & Love
My Shadow And I by Kevin Richardson is a delightful book for young children.
The tale shows the beautiful bond between a young boy and his dog. We see that they do everything together. They are a partnership. Where the young boy goes, Shadow follows.
We learn about cooperation and kindness as the boy thinks about what Shadow wants when he is not there.
It is a simple story making it easy for young children to remember it and its message.
The book is beautifully illustrated. The pictures are simple but with much detail. Each page is a starting point for discussions with our children.
My favourite illustration is the last one which is a heart shape in the soil with a pawprint and a hand print.
This is a beautiful addition to any first book collection.
I received a free copy from the publishers. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
