Hudson has a new favorite book and when I get hooked on one with him it’s really special because we really enjoy reading them together! His new favorite is Astri The Brave L’il Oyster by Jessica Delagardelle and we LOVE it. It’s so adorable – The art is so unique. Hudson loves how realistic it is (Because a lot of materials went into the making all of the pieces)! He loves his cartoon character books but it seems like he’s able to really relate to the realness of brave little Astri!
Astri teaches all of us (big and small) how important it is to overcome fear and challenges to allow ourselves to accomplish and grow.
She is a tiny, super cute little oyster who encounters some misfortune and although was initially very afraid she musters up the strength to be brave!
Once braver she finds it easier and easier to gain the strength to handle her struggle and in the end brings forth a beautiful pearl.
This story not only teaches our children (and again, ourselves) how powerful it is to be brave and strong but also teaches children where pearls come from (AND how much work it takes to do so – As it is with other things that may require bravery!)
I love this book because it’s teaching such a wonderful message (In so many different ways!) and the art is so unique and beautiful. Hudson constantly grabs it to read at night (And multiple times throughout the day!)
(I was given a book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own and are genuine. We LOVE this book!)
