Stanley Seagull Blog Tour (Martha Hill, Guest Post)

Book Summary
Meet a young seagull named Stanley. Follow him as he wanders far from home and tries to find his way back. Join Stanley on his journey as he learns how humans affect the balance of nature.

Because this book is a children's book, I would like to welcome my daughter, Martha Hill, who has written her very first book review.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

"There were not any real "stand-out" parts in this book for me.  I liked that for each page you read, you got to see two really neat pictures.  Since I was reading on a Kindle, the pictures were in black and white, but I still enjoyed them.  I believe this book would appeal to children younger than I am because it was very easy for me to read.  The most exciting part about this book is that it was the first book I ever read on my very own Kindle!  This is also the first review I ever wrote!"

  1. What an honor to be the first book that Martha reviewed on her Mom's blog. Thank you, Ruth, for the team effort with your daughter and I'll be sure to look for many more reviews from her in the future. That's wonderful that Martha has her own Kindle and loves to read.
