Have you ever lived through a natural disaster? If so, Charlotte can relate. One night it rained so much her house flooded. Her and her parents were rescued in a boat and taken to a shelter where other flood victims were being housed. She is sad, but thankful she grabbed her teddy bear, even though she’s too old for one. Through staying at the shelter, Charlotte learns how the flooding has affected other kids and how reaching out to others can turn a tough situation into a blessing.
The artwork in this picture book is beautiful and effective. Even though this book is for young readers, readers of all ages can gleam wisdom from its pages. The themes of this picture book are timeless and even more important. Selflessness is needed even more now.
I received my complimentary copy of A Flood Of Kindness by Ellen Leventhal and illustrated by Blythe Russo, from WorthyKids. The views are mine and my own choice. I like discovering great picture books. What a treat to get to read. Grab your own copy this spring.
