No colour illustrationsGranskad i Storbritannien den 16 mars 2021
I love that a contribution from each sale goes to charity, but ordered it thinking it would include colour illustrations for the price and from the description, so was a little disappointed that the illustrations were just b&w. The publishers missed a trick there, as they could have made a truly beautiful book with the original illustrations in a slightly larger format and sold it for twice the price. Shame to have amassed such great contributions but only print them in b&w and cheap stock. Still looked like a lovely book but didn't feel it would captivate my 3 year old or that I would enjoy it as much myself. I purchased it with the idea of treating it like a sort of keepsake book I could enjoy myself and sharing with my daughter, but felt like the production values let it down in that respect - beautiful cover but lightweight paper and so just didn't feel like a book I'd cherish holding or poring over. So unfortunately decided to return at this price point. Only removed one star for this as I feel it still deserves praise for the content and would still suit slightly older readers.

Inspirational short storiesGranskad i Storbritannien den 18 november 2020
My 13 year old got this for her birthday and loves it. A lot of well known (by her) authors have written for the book so that caught her attention straight away. She has the book by her bed and reads a story from it most nights. Well put together with loads of positive stories.

An absolute beautiful book. As a primary school teacher I have enjoyed sharing these stories with the children in my class. The kids love them. Lots of work opportunities too! Definitely recommend this book. Also it makes a beautiful gift
