Book Review/Giveaway: Lucky’s Lick. Ends Oct 18th
Lucky’s Lick by Mary Esparza-Vela and illustrated by Denis Proulx
About the Book: A young boy sits in his wheel chair in front of the house, waiting for his guests to arrive for his birthday party. His uncle walks in with a frisky little puppy that changes the boy’s life. The story is about love and faith.
My Review: Juanito sat in his wheel chair watching the kids in his neighborhood playing basketball and riding their bikes. Only a few months ago he was riding his bike before he got struck by a car which left him paralyzed from the waist down. Juanito’s prayer was to walk again and with his birthday coming up he wasn’t going to allow his situation get in the way of celebrating with his friends and family. He received a special gift from his uncle which went a long way in helping him make a full recovery.
This is an inspiring and uplifting story, a story about a positive attitude toward life situations. This story not only encourages children but gives hope. A great way to overcome adversity.
The illustrations by Denis Proulx are bright and bold which helps bring the story to life. I highly recommend this book.
