Wednesday, September 28, 2011

Written by Donalisa Helsley
Illustrated by Sarah Harkey

Reading level: Ages 6+ (recommended)

Short description: The Day No One Played Together by Donalisa Helsley is a cute story about two sisters who learn the true value of making
compromises with one another during play time.

Review: The Day No One Played Together is a great story for children, ages 6 and up. I would highly recommend an adult to read the book, if reading for ages 5 and under. Although, most of the words are not too complex, there are a few that the author has highlighted at the end of the story to go over. Overall, I found this story unique and fun to read. Helsley touches on the great topic of compromise, a subject that often goes unnoticed in children's stories and at school. She does a wonderful job emphasizing the importance of compromise throughout the story by showing readers the difficulty Jadyn and Genesis encounter during playtime. The illustrations for the book are absolutely wonderful! Sarah Harkey did a wonderful job creating the world around the story. I really loved this book because it not only had beautiful illustrations to go with the writing but it had the overall package of a great children's book. I loved the fact that the characters Jadyn and Genesis are relate able to the way children act and react with others during playtime. I definitely plan on reading this to my children one day!
