Before I begin this book review, I'd like to wish you a Happy Valentine's Day!!! I hope you have someone special to spend the day with. If not, treat yourself! You deserve it.
Now, on to the review: I had the privilege of meeting Ashely Norris the author of "Little Millie Ford & Her New Skateboard" at a Holiday Gift Show. As an author myself, I meet many authors, and when I come across one like Ashely who has produced a fabulous book and who also comes across as a genuinely kind person, I like to brag on their work.
Before you even read this book, you will discover that it is high-quality (very attractive hardcover, professional illustrations, and thick paper that won't tear easily as the book is read over and over by a child). The story is one of bravery and a great lesson about how a child can learn to do the things they set they heart and mind to, one step at a time.
Ashley was thoughtful enough to personalize this book for my two-year-old son, and after reading this story, I'd recommend it for children ages 0-10 (parents, read books to your children as soon as they're born, or even when they're in the womb). I will definitely be grabbing a copy of Ashley's other book, Queenie Wahine (Little Surfer Girl Book) very soon for my little guy.
