When I read the story to my 4-year-old, (even though he isn’t quite the target audience) it left a deep impression on him. He talks about the unicorn’s heart and how it allowed him to do anything he wanted. In his own way, my son has internalized the message this story tries to give.
It has been written in a simple, attractive way so that children will stay engaged. It has a mix of adventure and fantasy, and it is completely non-preachy.
The illustrations are bright and relatable, and most pages have accompanying text.
I think this format (illustration + text) should have been maintained throughout the book to help younger children stay with the story. [Some pages only have text.]
It’s a beautiful story with some conversation starters given at the end, and I’m glad the author wrote it!
(I received a review copy from the author via Booktasters in exchange for an honest review.)
