This beginning reader is perfect for eager new readers with simple sentences and colorful illustrations.
Mona Hodgson is the author of nearly 30 children's books and also writes 19th century historical fiction. In addition to writing and speaking, Mona likes to read mysteries and love stories, hike Arizona, travel to Africa, play table games, and play Wii Tennis. She lives in central Arizona where she spies roadrunners, quail, cottontail rabbits, and even an occasional skunk in her yard.
In Mona Hodgson's The Princess Twins Play in the Garden, which is another book in the "I Can Read" Beginning Level 1 series, twins Abby and Emma decide to invite two neighboring girls to their garden for a play date. Emma believes that a princess should always look pretty and dignified, so she refuses to join in the activities the other three girls delight in. The threesome builds sand castles, rides a pony, runs up and down a hill, and plays soccer. Emma only watches and sips the tea from the tea party she had organized for the visitors.
Suddenly, a muddy soccer ball hits Emma and stains her fancy pink dress. She screams at the visiting little girl who kicked the ball, and the little girl cries. Emma realizes she has hurt the girl's feelings, so she apologizes and then joins in with the three other girls in playing games. At the end of the day, they are all friends who will enjoy getting together on some other day.
The book begins by quoting I Samuel 16:7, "People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart." The pastel colors of the artwork by Red Hansen are not bold, but the scenes reflect natural activities of young girls at play. The book teaches a good lesson about genuine beauty. Children will not have trouble understanding the message of the story. - Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
