Where Honesty Never Ends.
Greetings! No Labels here!
In this edition of Kindle App Random Robin, I share my thoughts on the children’s read, Erica’s Tripod.
There were so many things I adored about this book.
I really liked the light colors that were used: not only for the cover but on the pages throughout the book. They were noticeable but did not over power the text.
The text was crisp and sharp, very pleasing to the eyes.
The presentation was flawless. Grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors were nonexistent.
The illustrations really hopped off the page. There was great detailing used, especially on the iguana and the turtle. My favorite images were of the cat and the dog, Tripod. Especially Tripod! I wanted to reach out and pet him–he was so adorable!
To some readers, Erica may come across as very mean, yet I think the author did a brilliant job at making her realistic. Erica is struggling with how to handle her condition and feels anger for not being able to do what other kids can do. It is quite natural for bitterness to set in, especially when one is used to being independent and certain tasks being a struggle that others take for granted: going up and down stairs or getting in and out of bed.
In addition to all of those mentioned, I applaud the lessons that are entrenched in this book:
Notes/Suggestions: I would have loved to have seen graphics of Erica, Betty, and Erica’s mom a little closer to the beginning of the story.
For beautiful illustrations, heartwarming story, and flawless presentation, I give Erica’s Tripod 10 out of 10 TRB stars.
