Four star review for Felix After the Rain!
Buy Felix After the Rain
I loved Felix; and totally understood how he felt from the very first. While I am most often upbeat, optimistic, and cheerful, there are moments and times in everyone’s life that we feel we are carrying a heavy bag, and we simply cannot shake it off. That bag of all those “heavy feelings” – for whatever reason – that takes over everything else, is the theme of this book. The truly unique and bright illustrations complement the feels perfectly though I definitely needed to go over the pages a second time to really understand what it was about. So while this is a really wonderfully done book – theme and illustration wise – it might simply go over the heads of the intended younger audiences without ample dialogue and discussions with their parents or caregivers. In Summary All said and done, this book is a great resource to help initiate discussions and conversations with young ones about those “heavy feelings” we all tend to carry – old and young alike, and how to lighten ourselves of them (even if just a little). A 4.5 stars
