Book Review: Wisdom, the Midway Albatross

Wisdom watercolor artwork by Kitty Harvill

 

The theme of the book is survival, with threats ranging from plastic pollution in the ocean and scary stormy weather explained in simple but scientifically accurate language appropriate for young children. The environmental message is especially very clear without being too overbearing. The conclusion to each interlude is always the same - the positive message that Wisdom has survived.

I think this is a great picture book with a positive message to share with children. I give Wisdom 5 Goldfinches out of 5.

Disclosure: This is my own original, honest review of Wisdom, a copy of which was provided to me free of charge by the publisher.
