{My thoughts} – This is a nice leveled reader about a couple of fairies that are going to be in a music show. There are four fairies and out of the four only one, May doesn’t have her wings. This story is about how she helps her friend Luna in her time of need and then receives her wings for her ability to help others and show compassion.

I think it’s a nice leveled reader. The illustrations match the story well. The story itself shows children that when you help others selflessly there is the possibility that in the end you can be rewarded.

I recommend this book because I think it’s a simple enough reader that with a little help any child will breeze through the pages. I also recommend it because of its ability to teach the reader a good lesson in morale.

A fun levelled-reader biography, targetted to younger readers. It's got a cool factor to it, has lots of informational callouts, it addresses the injustices experienced with a light touch, but is matter-of-fact. The book flirts with talking down to the audience at a couple of points but mostly is just good clean fun and celebrates a life well-lived. I'd recommend to readers who have a hard time finding something interesting, who are interested in athletic endeavor and the Olympics, who like swimming and the ocean, and who are on the cusp of wanting to learn about real people.… (mais)
