Review: Hattie and the Wild Waves: A Story From Brooklyn

User Review  - Ms Threlkeld - Goodreads

This book presents a lifestyle that most readers will be astounded by - did people really live like this? The illustrations and descriptive language is lovely and the message of the story is vital for children to hear. There is a lot of text, which might turn some kids off. Read full review

I did not enjoy this book nearly as much as Miss Rumphius. The illustrations were beautiful though. Worth a look. Read full review
