Book Review- How To Be Famous (Children's Series)

This is a series I will be running for a little while, highlighting some excellent children's literature. During the coming months, there will be many children's books. Stay tuned to learn more about it. Read previous posts in this series here. 

How to Be Famous

This wasn't a bad picture book. It didn't hold little one's attention for very long, though. 

I enjoyed the story line about a confused bird who believes he is a famous person. He believes it is his mission to tell us ( the readers) how to be famous. The humor in this book took some explaining, but overall I believe children would like it.

Young readers will be every entertained by her storytelling. She has a very elevated sense of self-worth and her lack of awareness and caution. The ending is a bit, different. For sensitive children, I would not recommend this book. For kids that are okay with the death of an animal, I would say go for it.

Ultimately though it left the little one more confused than amused.

Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for this review by Gecko Press. All thoughts and such are my own. 

Purchase this book at Amazon and Barnes&Noble 
Goodreads Description: 

Take a trip to the zoo with this irrepressible pigeon as it preens and poses alongside all the animals, right up to the sharp teeth of a grumpy lion. A cheeky layered story full of deadpan humor and a fresh illustrative style.
