Chizi's Tale Book Review

We love books at our house. 

We even have a special place for them in Jax's room. 
He loves to read me, and I enjoy doing the same with him, but with my books turned right side up. 

Jax loves animals. I mean, he LOVES them big! When neighbors walk their dogs, he has to pet them, then he cries when they walk away. So- any book that is about animals of any sort is on our radar and reading list. 

I digress. When the author of Chizi's Tale contacted me about a book review, I said SURE! Send my little buddy a free book to read. I'll be happy to jot down my thoughts. 

Here are my thoughts:

- Y'all. This book is about a rhino. It isn't your typical dog or cat book. It's a rhino book. If you have an older child, this is a great little book to introduce them to other animals. AND, I would even suggest pairing it with a trip to zoo if your child is a visual learner. 

- It's a true story about a orphaned black rhino that was separated from his mother when he was a day old. Can we pause for a moment and let our hearts continue to break?!?! The Park Ranger that discovers him takes him home to his family. Let's pause for another moment. 

Ummm....No! I immediately think of Mammie on Gone with the Wind. I would have to tell H: "But I don't know nuffin' about raisin' no rhino's"!  He becomes the family pet. THE FAMILY PET! 

-This is a super cute book for school age children. This would be a great book to start a discussion about adoption of an incoming family pet. Or, upcoming trip on a Disney Safari! 

-The illustrations are wonderful: 

While it's a little over my child's head, we are going to put it on the top shelf of the book case and re-read it when he is older. However, he LOVES the rhino stuffed animal! 

Overall: 2 thumbs up! This may be bought for some birthday presents from Jaxon! 

You can buy the book here from Amazon.
