Mip and Pip are two fairies who live in a beautiful forest near a waterfall. One day, Mip has a brilliant idea to build a tree house and decides to make it into a contest: whoever can build the tallest tree house the fastest wins! Pip, who is much more thoughtful and a planner, reads about architecture and sketches out blueprints while Mip, the speedster, is already halfway done constructing her house. But when a powerful gust of wind threatens Mip’s tree house and Pip’s safety, the two friends must learn to appreciate each other’s talents to save the day-and to build the tallest tree house in the forest.
Children’s books are the most precious books ever! I don’t have kids of my own but I love flipping through a kids book. And I love reviewing them. I definitely need to review them more often because I find it challenging and fun! I’m going to break this review up into sections, focusing on important factors parents might look at when deciding on which book to purchase for their wee one.
1. The Illustrations
The pastel colours in this book are stunning. They really pull the story together and are so calming to the eyes. Kids will be drawn in because of the calming effect and imagination will flow! I love the images of the trees. The illustrations are wonderful. My favourite part was the mushroom!
2. Lessons Learned
The lesson at the forefront for the reader is team work! I loved how the characters tackled team work together. They originally are at odds and both of their ideas miserably fail. Once they work together their project they realize how important teamwork truly is. Competition is also an important lesson in this story. Healthy competition vs. destructible competition. Such a great way to explain this concept to a kid!
