I have been meaning to post this review for some time now but you see WORK and KIDS and EVERYONE ELSE'S KIDS got in my way. However, I am proud to announce that I am now ready to discuss The Travel Adventures of Lilly P. Badilly.
The Travel Adventures of Lilly P. Badilly is a remarkable children's book written and illustrated by Debbie Glade.
Lilly P. Badilly, a very talented and artistic millipede sets off on a Costa Rican vacation with her grandparents. The "vacation" was meant to be a way of exploring and having a great time however Lilly soon realizes that there is more to this so called vacation. Lilly and her grandparents meet some pretty interesting creatures/insects along the journey including a riddling millipede and a very scary spider....scary as in SHE WANTED TO HAVE THEM FOR DINNER!
As the story starts out we find out that Lilly P. Badilly is pretty much scared of a lot of things however by the end of the journey she has actually overcome the fears and shown great strength and skill by helping others.
The book is filled with colorful illustrations, geography, culture and tons of humor.
I had a great time reading this to my children and they really enjoyed hearing how the story unfolded.
YOU MUST listen to the amazing cd that is included with the book. It is filled with great music and songs that will definately have the whole family humming along.
*My children loved the cd so much that they had to share it with their neighbor friends yesterday!
The Travel Adventures of Lilly P. Badilly is a enjoyable read and I can not wait to read the next collection by author Debbie Glade.
