Youth Corner: Book Review

Pookie and the Lost Shoe
By Jennifer Hopson, Illustrated by Johnny Hopson

Reviewed by Auriana Duffy, Journal Staff

Pookie and The Lost Shoe, written by Jennifer Hopson and illustrated by Johnny Hopson Jr., is a whimsical children's book filled with cute made up words such as "Fabpurpleish" that are sure to make you laugh!

The concept of the book is based upon a game of hide-and-find the object which is sure to keep any child engaged, while also creatively being introduced to the language arts concept of prepositions.

Prepositions are connecting words that show the relation of noun or pronoun to the other words in a sentence.

This book is fun for the whole family to share, and is filled with vibrant colors, and beautiful illustrations. This book would also make for a great gift!
