Sky Pony Press “Lizzie and Lou Seal” ~ GIVEAWAY!

Do you love to snuggle up with your little ones to read?  Do you have kids that enjoy sitting and reading or looking at pictures in books?  I have a house full of kids that adore books (well, maybe not a house full but four of them!) 😉  We have really enjoyed this cute and spunky book by Sky Pony Press.   It is called Lizzie and Lou Seal” by Patricia Keeler.  Patricia wrote and did the art for the book, and man, the pictures in this book are so great!  I love mixed media art.  It is so unique and funky. 

Lizzie and Lou Seal” is about a sweet little crazy haired girl named Lizzie.  She has a blow up seal named Lou Seal. Together they plan a day at the beach but they encounter some troubles along the way. Lizzie has her striped swimsuit on and her polka dotted flip flops, which she has endearingly named “Dottie One” and “Dottie Two”. 😉

Lizzie and Lou Seal head on down to the ocean side.  Patricia Keeler provides beautiful pictures to accompany the story line but she also appeals to our auditory sense with her use of onomatopoeia. For example, Lizzie’s flip flops go “thwap, thwap, thwap” as she walks. Everyone can relate to that distinct flip flop sound.  It is basically the sound of summer! 🙂  There is also some “shuffle, shuffle”s and some “scooch, scooch”ing. Poor Lou Seal deals with some “sssssss”ing when she loses her puff (as Lizzie calls it).  Lizzie has a plan to fix Lou Seal up to ensure they get to do some swimming in the ocean. Along with Lou Seal’s loss of air Lizzie also manages to lose both of her flip flops on the way to the water.  This book is soooooo alike a day with my own children.  Walking from the camper to the water side is never an easy task.  *eye roll*

I think one of my favourite parts about this book is that Lizzie looks so much like my young daughter with her plump little body and wild red hair. She also has spunk and attitude just like my little girl.

All four of my kids loved reading this book.  My one year old daughter attempted to copy some of the sounds in the book.  Her favourite being “ssssssss”.  My two oldest boys were amused by Lizzie’s solution to her deflated Lou Seal and all of my children loved studying the pictures.

It is a high quality hard cover book and definitely worth reading for your next bed time story. Happy reading!!
