I love getting to review children’s books! They are so much fun :)
Millie Fierce by Jane Manning is the story about a little girl who is tired of not being noticed (I can relate to that).
She decides that she is going to be FIERCE instead of ordinary (that, I cannot relate to, I may be opinionated, but I am hardly fierce, at least not in person :) ).
It doesn’t work out so well for her…
and she discovers that maybe being nice, though ordinary and maybe a little dull, is far better than being fierce.
This really is a cute little story though I must admit, I’m glad she realized that being fierce isn’t all it’s cut out to be in the end. That would have made for a very sad story and bitter old woman!
This is a picture book that is perfect for pre-schoolers (and their older sisters who read to them). The illustrations are bright and Millie’s expressions are priceless.
