Picture Book Review: Petunia
Petunia is a silly goose who finds a book. She carries the book everywhere she goes, knowing that books are valuable. Pretty soon, Petunia thinks that she is wise because she owns a book.
Thinking that she is wise because she owns a book and puffed up with pride, Petunia dispenses advice wherever she goes in the farmyard. Unfortunately, her advice is terrible and brings harm to all the other animals. A terrible accident humbles Petunia and she realizes that owning a book doesn't make one wise. She decides to learn to read.
This book is a sweet story about pride, humility, wisdom, advice, and books. The life lesson Petunia learns is one that the Lord wants everyone to learn.
However, you children won't know they are learning a life lesson when you read them this delightful tale.
Though Petunia is a silly goose, she is funny. Her escapades will make your children laugh. They will feel sorry for her victims, the other farm animals.
The story will keep everyone's interest and the illustrations are appealing. Petunia is a charming tale that is fun to read aloud. Everyone will enjoy hearing Mom read Petunia.
I highly recommend this classic book that has delighted children for generations and will certainly be enjoyed by your little ones.
Happy Reading Aloud.
