Midwest Book Review — The Activity Shelf
Synopsis: While doing a recycling workshop with a group of three and four-year-olds, Lauren Persons asked what they thought would make a perfect world. Their answers (ice cream, pizza and chocolate) made sense to Lauren. Then they tackled harder problems by coming up with great ideas to re-purpose containers often tossed away with little thought. Their ideas were bold and creative. illustrated throughout by Noah Hrbek, “The Perfect Gift: Color My World Perfect” is an interactive story and was written by Lauren to remind children (and their parents!) just how special they are and the important role they play in creating a beautiful world.
Critique: Inspired and inspiring, “The Perfect Gift: Color My World Perfect” is fun, engaging, ‘kid friendly’, and highly recommended consumable activities book for children ages 4-7, featuring a delightful and interactive story. It should be noted for personal reading lists that “The Perfect Gift: Color My World Perfect” is also available in a Kindle edition ($4.95)
