Inspiring message but too abstract for 3-5 years old
Reviewed in India on 11 September 2020
This book is highly rated and i love the message it conveys. But designs throughout the book are too abstract for 3-5 years old in my opinion.
My 29mo old doesn't really engage with it because it is not realistic and is also hard for me to read as it's too and hard to explain what it means. There may be other books with bigger messages but with simple designs so the kid can at least interact with the images but not in this case as i said they are too abstract.
There is a page about fun and it depicts a circus with elephants wearing roller blades and holding people up - that's pretty sad and doesn't convey the true message of exploiting animals for fun is actually cruel and shouldn't be encouraged - i found this part really sad.
I would recommend this book for over 6 year old kids perhaps those who have started school and are about to begin their life journey and experience disappointment, failure, success etc
