Real words from real reviews!
Arnie the Armadillo is a simple but beautifully crafted story with a warm heart. The author Claire, has created a character that children can relate to and empathise with. When I read to my girls they were completely engaged, willing Arnie on and hoping that he found the courage to discover his ‘special gift.’ As a mother, I especially liked how Arnie tried several things out before he found what was right from him. This is a hugely valuable lesson to teach our children and it is great when children’s literature supports this.
