We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books.  A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured.  The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old…or for somewhere in between!  Enjoy your free peek into the book!

My Review:
This will be a short review as this is a short children’s book. Having two young sons I love to get and review children’s books and then pass them on to them. This book was VERY eye catching for them! The illustrations flow well with the story line and the author does a fantastic job at creating a story that will hold the young readers’ attention. The book teaches these young readers’ the value of helping others, doing for others first before yourselves. The fun part about this book is its sweet cover! I loved it! It went PERFECTLY with the title of the book and the illustrator was just phenomenal. So, all in all, this is definitely a recommended 4 star childrens book!
