A good children’s book must have a good story, a good lesson, good art, and be interesting enough to read over and over again without getting sick of it. One such book that I will never tire of is Dear Mr. Blueberry by Simon James. A perfect book to read to your children or grandchildren over summer break.
I was introduced to this book many years ago when I took my children to story-time at the aquarium. It was a great book for the aquarium to read as it is written about whales. The story is so cute and unique to most children’s books as it is written in letter form from Emily to her teacher Mr. Blueberry. Emily writes to Mr. Blueberry, as school is not in, and asks him questions of whales, as she has found one in her pond,and Mr. Blueberry replies back to her in letter form.
So, if you know of a child interested in whales or things of the ocean, give Dear Mr. Blueberry a try. It is a good story with all the must haves of a children’s book and will hold an adult interested as well. Yours sincerely…..
