Popper is a little woodpecker who realizes that he has outgrown his family home, as his bed is now too small for him. He sets out on a mission to find a new home with the help of his buddies.
IL Ritchie’s Popper Finds a New Home is a delightful story about a young woodpecker. The book is charming, and children will enjoy the subject. My not quite two-year-old granddaughter adored it and asked questions about the numerous home prospects Popper visited. All of Popper’s friends’ proposals delighted her as well. She enthused over the affable Filbert’s suggestion.
I enjoyed how each of Popper’s friends offered to assist him by describing where woodpeckers don’t live and encouraging him to look elsewhere. I also admired Popper’s parents’ support and approval for him in his quest.
Older children will enjoy the story as well and will take away many positive messages about growing up, friendships and perseverance, along with the concept of diverse kinds of homes.
The graphics are so clever, cute and delightful. Yulia Pots, the illustrator, created quirky, inventive illustrations throughout the book. The pictures of birds, animals and insects are slightly exaggerated, giving them an appealing quality that children will enjoy.
The narrative is aimed at children aged 3 to 7. It will, however, pique the curiosity of both younger and older children. The text is easy to read and occupies the entire page, which will stimulate the interest of beginning and more advanced readers. At the same time, the illustrations will enchant and amuse fledgling and non-readers alike.
Thank you to iRead Book Tours. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
