Fur and Feathers by Janet Halfmann

I'd like to thanks to Sylvan Dell Publishing and author Janet Halfmann for providing me an ebook of Fur and Feathers to review. Sophia has a hard time falling asleep because of a storm that is raging outside so her mother has her start counting animals. She falls asleep while counting and has a dreams that the animals are caught in the storm and lose their clothes (feathers, fur and coats), they are just bare skin. She tries to dress them in her clothes, but that doesn't work. So she finds her grandmother's sewing basket and creatively makes each of them a new coat with items she finds in the basket. If you enjoy Jan Brett's books I believe you be equally happy and impressed with Halfmann's Fur and Feathers.

This is a very wonderfully fun and creative story. The pictures are just as wonderful, bright and beautiful. I believe that any younger child would love this delightful picture book. Christmas is coming and why not give them a book. This one would be wonderfully loved and cherished I'm sure.

I'd like to thank the author again for contacting me about reviewing her book. Please know that she has a new one coming out that I too will be reviewing along with a giveaway. So be watching for Good Night, Little Sea Otter.

Thanks so much for your wonderful review of my book. It was lots of fun trying to think of what materials from the sewing basket would work for each coat. Now kids are having fun coming up with their own ideas, such as dryer lint for a bunny and toothpicks for a porcupine. What fun! Happy Reading!
