Welcome to Tribute Books Tour of the book
Stanley Seagull By Cathy Mazur Illustrated by Colleen Gedrich
As I was reading this book I thought about how much most kids are like Stanley Seagull. By not listening, they find themselves in trouble and have no idea how to get out of it. With Stanley, he was so excited when his friend introduced him to the garbage truck because there was so much food there, he could eat all he wanted and still have more to eat. What he didn’t know way, if he did listen to his friends warning, he would be taken far, far away from his home and the ocean.
This really has a lesson for adults too. Isn’t that was satan does to us with sin? He tells how good it is, but doesn’t tell the consequences.
This is an awesome book for young children. The illustrations are amazing, and a child can read the story himself by the expressions on the faces of the seagulls, and the details in the pictures. The color’s are beautiful, and gives you the ocean feel. I think this story will capture the young reader’s attention because they will be sad for Stanley and want to see him find his home.
Thanks to Tribute books for providing an e-copy of this book for me to read and review. I was not required or expected to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.
