Once I judged the book completely and became contented with it more than my expectations, I handed over the book to my little one to explore and learn. Excited and enthralled on visualizing the colorful and interesting cover of the book, my little girl became deeply engrossed in the interesting tale of friendship. She could easily understand and count on the moral of strength in friendship and its importance in life as the characters of the story battled against the powerful with their strength of oneness and spirit of friendship. I wouldn't be shy to admit that even I spent few nights enjoying this beautiful tale of four little girls while reading out the bed time story for my daughter.
It is indeed one of those books which trains your kids with sound morals while they are busy enjoying their favorite colorful story book, thereby providing deep relief to parents like me who struggle each day to teach their children the true morals of life. Highly recommended!
Sewing a Friendship starts with a picture of each of the characters in the book and character profile of each, answering the questions of birth date, age, family, eye color, hair color, favorite food, favorite color, and specialty. For the target age group Natalie is writing for, I found this to be a nice way to start the story. The reader then knows who the characters are that they will meet and have a visual they can refer to if they need to during the course of reading the book. As a young reader, I always loved character profiles, just a little snippet about the character outside of the actual text. Then I would compare throughout my reading experience to see if the author kept true to the profile, or whether I could spot any discrepancies.
The story starts with the wind blowing through town and checking on each of the main characters at each house along the way. Ms. Tinti has very unique character names. Along with the wind, you meet the four friends, Sokron Blossom, Nina Key, Meeka Venya, Jonsy Jipsy, and the outcast Kiki Shaver. In addition to the friends and Kiki, there is Sokron's grandma, Babushka and her dog, Dogon.
The four friends get together to have a beginning of summer sleep over. Then they find out about a fashion show and are excited to participate. However, Kiki Shaver threatens to stop their participation. The girls find because of the rules, they need Kiki and Kiki needs them and through working together they are able to become friends by seeing the value in each other. My favorite character is Dogon, as he snoops on the girls and helps to ensure the friendship is knit together.
The illustrations are delightful and highly colorful, and each chapter has a different border, which makes it a happy read. I look for a bright future for this young author and illustrator.
