#Review: The Three Lost Kids & The Death of the Sugar Fairy by Kimberly Kinrade #atozchallenge, #kidsbooks
Join the Three Lost Kids for another adventure as they're attacked by Sugar Bugs, face their fears in Cavity Cave, and battle giant Gummy Bears, all to save a dying Sugar Fairy who holds the fate of Halloween in her hands.
Can the girls learn to work together, each using their strengths to save the day, or will their fighting trap them in Sugar Land forever?
I have read children's books from this author before and one other from this series. This particular book is based around the holiday of Halloween, which appeals to the kid in me.
I love how the author weaves fantasy, myth, and real life into a tale that pops out perfect. As with the author's other books, she has a moral to tell and one hopefully kids will learn well. In this book the moral is if you eat too much sugar and do not take care of your teeth, you will not only be sick but your teeth will rot. Eat things that are healthy for you and naturally sweet!
The other idea children can pull from this book is that sometimes, we need to take care of others as well as ourselves even if that means facing fears to accomplish the goal. Being kind and generous is a plus and rewards come in the form of different ways that is not necessarily money or praise.
The other thing I love about this author is that she uses her own children and canine as the characters in her stories. I am sure they delight in seeing themselves in her books as I know that I delighted in reading about them and their awesome adventures.
This book and series is a winner for me. 5 stars!
