Stanley Seagull book review
by Tara Funair
Meet a young seagull named Stanley. Follow him as he wanders far from home and tries to find his way back. Join Stanley on his journey as he learns how humans affect the balance of nature. (Book Summary)
The boys really enjoyed the book. Luke understood and grasped the concept of Stanley's adventure. Anthony was sad but then happy when Stanley returned home, and Christopher loved naming the colors and pointing out the birds. Something for everyone.
I like how the illustrations (Colleen Gedrich) were friendly to all of the age ranges in my house. The story itself (written by Cathy Mazur) allows the children to learn about different aspects of this particular bird and they can easily follow along. The concept can easily be explained to my 5 year old in a way he understands while my 8 year old can read through the book on his own.
