(VINE VOICE) This review is from: The Belly Button Fairy (Hardcover)
The Belly Button Fairy is not your ordinary fairy. Instead, this fairy is a grandmotherly figure who wears tennis shoes and flies around in her rocking chair. Bobbie Hinman has created a thoroughly charming main character for this story. I can't imagine that children wouldn't just flock to the Belly Button Fairy. In addition, Mark Wayne Adams has developed endearing images of this fairy and all her doings.
The Belly Button Fairy does not multi-task. Her one job is to make sure all the babies receive only one belly button and that it is right in the middle.
It is easy to see why The Belly Button Fairy has won several awards, including the 2010 Mom's Choice Medal Award. The story has a wonderfully fun rhythm to it and the images make you want to study each page to make sure you don't miss anything. As an added bonus, the book comes with an audio CD, complete with fairy songs and story narration. What a great addition to enhance the enjoyment of the book.
