Batina’s story is one of determination and teamwork…The positive message of working together and embracing diversity makes this early-level chapter book, illustrated by Gabhor Utomo, shine.
This is a great book. I can imagine reading this book with my grandchild. It’s really a perfect book to read with your child or for your child to read. I must say that the pictures throughout the book were beautiful. I’ll have to see if there are more books by this author for my grandchildren.
Batina’s Best First Day is a skillfully written children’s story that teaches several important lessons: Always do your best, accept other people’s differences, never give up and (of course) brush your teeth!
Batina’s Best First Day is a witty and entertaining tale about what really happens when you put those teeth under your pillow. The Illustrations are magical and work perfectly with the story.
This story is adorable and whimsical, and kids will love those fairies. The illustrations are enchanting and give good pace and movement to the story, breathing life into the characters.
Ditto underlines the importance of well-brushed teeth from a tooth fairy’s point of view, an intriguing choice since children are generally more interested in what the collector leaves under their pillows.
With short chapters, lots of color illustrations, an age-appealing topic and an appropriate reading level, I think Denise Ditto has nailed it.
