Review sample:

Little Leah Lou and Her Pink Tu is packed with colorful, graphic illustrations of movement and life that catches children’s attention. The text bounces along with fun to read out loud words and phrases that introduce a playful young heroine who loves to wear her pink tutu everywhere she goes. When she wears her tutu to the zoo she encounters a giraffe with the munchies and is left with half a tutu. Her solution to her tutu tragedy will both surprise and amuse readers and wins her the admiration of the zoo’s flashiest residents.  The story is told using a parallel structure to deliver an optimistic message that teaches children to think creatively to solve problems, to have the courage to be themselves and how the best way to handle disappointment is to focus on the positive. Little girls everywhere can relate to the title character and the story is realistically believable. Fans give the book the best review possible –requesting it be read again.
