Kika the Upside-down Girl ~ Review and Giveaway

Kika the Upside-Down Girl
By Jessica Tudos

     Kids like me,
             love to be free,
                     upside-down,
                              filled with glee!

Kika is alone in her love of doing everything upside-down. Her family and friends just don't understand this passion she has. If only she could find kids who feel the same way.

This Kika's world, a world she likes seeing while hanging upside-down or walking on her hands.  Kika's joy is delightfully illustrated as is her parent's concerns over her unusual daily routine.

When Kika feels alone one feels her sorrow in the illustration is which she is curled up on her bed.  Children who have a passion for dangling from a tree, walking on their hands, doing flips, and tumbling will LOVE this book.

This book is perfect for the little gymnast in your life.  This would also be a perfect story hour book to share at a local school, library, or early literacy program.  The colorful images portray the mood and pacing making it easy for children to follow along as the story is read out loud.

I was provided a copy of this book through iRead Book Tours in exchange for my honest review and tour participation.

Join Kika, a girl who loves living upside down in a right side up world, on her unique journey to a fliptastic world!
