Review: Sage's Song (Pumpkinheads Series) by Karen Kilpatrick


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
Dance to the beat of Sage’s Song!
Find out what listening is really worth as Sage makes music from the sounds of the earth. Banging away on her drum, Sage can really make a racket! Stopping to listen to the world around her, Sage learns that music surrounds her in the simplest of sounds. This sensory exploration teaches the value of listening and inspires an awareness of the beautiful music nature creates.
From the Pumpkinheads, teaching messages that parents care about through books and characters that children love!

MY TAKE:
If your kid likes making a lot of noise, this book might be right up his or her alley.

In Sage's Song, Sage is a young kid who likes making sounds on her drum. However, when she stops to listen to the sounds of nature, she finds that there's a lot of nice sounds out there and she can make music in harmony with them too.

I liked the message of the story. Music comes from everywhere and it's nice that this book helps kids learn that they can find music in nature too.

The illustrations, for me, remind me of the style used for Blues Clues mixed with a little Dora the Explorer. It's not my cup of tea, but if you find that style nice, you should like the illustrations in the book.

Thanks to NetGalley and Nina Charles LLC for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:

  1. It helps kids appreciate the sounds of nature.
  2. It encourages love of music.
  3. Sage seems like a cute kid.

THE BAD:

  1. The illustration style might not work for everyone.

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
Sage dances and grooves
To the rhythm of nature's beat!

READ IT IF:

  1. Your kid likes banging on toy drums.
  2. Your kid is a nature lover.
  3. You want your child to appreciate nature a little bit more.
