Review: Shelter

Shelter Shelter by Céline Claire
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Review:

Shelter is a beautiful story wilt a heartwarming message about kindness and consideration for others. The illustrations are done in a soothing, soft style selecting various animals.

Shelter is a good suggestion for children who love animals. The kindness of some of the animals is rewarded with kindness when they are themselves in need. A beautifully illustrated example of the need for kindness and consideration for others.

Revived this book for review purposes.




Book description:

As a big storm approaches, two strangers arrive in the forest. All the animal families, safe in their homes, are worried. They wonder, ?What are they doing there? What do they want?? So, as the pair knocks at the door of one home after another asking for shelter, all the animals turn them away, leaving them to fend for themselves. But then an accident suddenly forces the fox family out into the snow and the wind, and the foxes find they must ask these outsiders for help. Will they find it in their hearts to give it?

Céline Claire's heartwarming picture book story delivers a timeless and timely message about the importance of kindness and generosity. With simple and evocative language, it explores how even small gestures can make a big difference to the strangers or outsiders in a community. Artist Qin Leng uses a warm, soft palette in her ink and watercolor illustrations creating a charming and inviting visual narrative that is perfect for young children. This book provides a wonderful opportunity for discussions about being welcoming and helping others in need, including how children can put this into practice by reaching out to the ?new kid? or the one who seems different. It also works well for character education lessons on kindness, caring and empathy.
