Benji & The Giant Kite - Children's Book Review and Giveaway


Book Overview:

Have you ever wanted one thing – just one thing – more than anything else in the world? A toy? A new bike? A computer game? Did you imagine that this one possession would make you incredibly happy – forever? For Benji that one thing is an enormous orange kite. In BENJI & THE GIANT KITE, Alan C. Fox tells the enchanting story of a young boy who learns that possessing something is not quite as meaningful as letting it go.

BENJI & THE GIANT KITE is Alan C. Fox’s second book for children.  It is illustrated by Eefje Juijl, a graduate of the School of the Arts Utrech, who is based in The Netherlands.

My Review:

I had the opportunity to read author, Alan C. Fox's, first book a few months ago.  Benji & The 24 Pound Banana Squash was an entertaining and fanciful book for children, so I was rather happy to see that Alan authored another book.

The story tells of a boy named Benji who likes kites and uses his allowance to buy them.  He's lost many kites on the beach.  One day he is in need of another kite and works to earn money for it.  He was happy and used the orange kite quite a bit.  Then one day he decides to let the kite go and fix the moment in his memory.

Benji & The Giant Kite is an adorable hardback book for preschool children.  It doesn't take long to read.  I like that Benji decides to preserve the moment in his memory and realizes that possessions aren't everything.  I also like that the story shows Benji working for an allowance to get what he wants.  

Win It!

One person will win a hardback book copy of Benji & The Giant Kite.
