The second book in Tim McGraw’s My Little Girl series is a heartwarming story of a little girl’s selfless act of kindness.
Tim McGraw and songwriter Tom Douglas once again join forces to write another book about the precocious Katie and her dad. Katie has many talents, but she wonders which one will win her school’s talent show. With the help of Dad and her faithful dog Palio, and after several amusing mishaps, Katie finally chooses one talent that includes Palio. But at the talent show, she decides to drop out of the contest to help her friend, showing kindness is the best talent of all. Katie’s proud dad reassures her that she did the best thing and that while he loves many things about her, he loves her heart most of all.
When it comes to reviewing book for children, I use a few different things to determine my opinion on it.
Was my child focused on the book as we read it together? Yes
Did she enjoy all the pictures or artwork throughout the book? Yes
Did she understand the meaning of what the book was about when we
discussed it afterwords? Kind Of
Did she ask me to read it again? No
Although my daughter enjoyed this book as I reading it to her, she had to ask a lot of questions. Some of the words she didn’t understand and I had to explain them to her as we read the book. She liked the colored pages, and she thought the people that were drawn were fun. Overall I think this book is better suited for children over 7. My 4 year old didn’t want to reread it again.
A Good Book and Read! Perfect For Rainy Days From the Library!
