A unique take on being different
Reviewed in the United States on May 17, 2017
My Review: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Now we have all seen books about someone who is different to encourage kids who might feel a little odd and left out, but those all usually have the character born different. This book is unique in the fact that Martha becomes different and that is one of the reasons I love it. Martha is just like all the other sheep, just a little shy, until one day she has an accident and ends up blue. She struggles with how much attention is on her because she is blue, but being blue and standing out ends up being a very good thing for Martha. I think kids who have something happen when they are older, like getting glasses, will really connect with this story. I also want to point out the illustrations, they are bold and unique, I love the expressions on all the characters faces.
My Rating: I really enjoyed the unique take this book took on a common story idea. Martha's story is one that could possibly help a lot of kids become more comfortable with changes in their lives and bodies. I give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!
