Kid's Book

Finished June 16
Skellig by David Almond
This award-winning childen's book is another destined for a young relative of mine. Here, ten-year-old Michael's family has moved across town into a dilapidated house. A baby girl is born early to Michael's parents and becomes the focus of attention as her health wavers. Michael explores his new environment, finding a small being in the garage of the house. With his new friend, Mina, Michael befriends this being and learns a lot in the process.
Dealing with all the issues he is confronted with, Michael grows emotionally. He learns new things and ideas from Mina and teaches her some as well.
This is an enchanting story of compassion and relationships and I know my niece will love it.
