I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher.
I am so excited about this one! YOUR ALIEN is an absolutely charming children's book from Tammi Sauer and Goro Fujita. A little boy looks out his window one day to see an alien spaceship crash landing. He and the cute little alien become good friends and have a lot of fun together. That night, however, the alien gets sad and the boy has to figure out how to comfort his new friend.
Not only is this book incredibly sweet but the illustrations are so charming! The rhythm and style of the text are reminiscent of Numeroff's IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE books. My 7-year-old son read the book out loud to me. There were only a few tough words and he was able to use picture clues to figure them out. He laughed out loud several times during the story and told me this was his favorite part:
I loved that this picture book was both funny and sweet. It has lovely things to say about friends, family, and helping others. I think kids of all ages will like this one but especially Preschool through 2nd Grade. Even if your child is already a good reader, the story and illustrations will draw him/her in.
BOTTOM LINE: Highly recommended. Incredibly sweet and charming. Lovely illustrations and a great message.
SUSIE IS THE WINNER! Thanks for playing! I will have more giveaways soon!
