A Necklace For Jiggsy Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
Kit Grady is a full time children’s illustrator and author living in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. Her love for drawing animals, nature and children began very early. She continued her passion studying art at Virginia Commonwealth University and later studied under Caldecott winners Uri Shulevitz and Gale Haley. Kit has produced greeting cards and created a weekly children’s page for the local newspaper. Her first book, by Windswept House Publishers, was followed by projects with The United Methodist Publishing House/Cokesbury, an educational publisher, Kaeden Books, Kicks Club Books, and the Collier Creative Group. She has also illustrated several books for Guardian Angel Publishing. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Kit, best known for her bright colors and expressive animals, recently published a book called A Necklace For Jiggsy.
My Take
I love children's books that actually have a moral, especially when it's presented in a way that the child reading the book isn't hit over the head with it. (If the moral is too obvious to a child, they're more apt to ignore it and laugh about it.) This book is perfect for ages 4-10, the older of which would easily be able to read it to themselves. The pictures are colorful and vibrant, and the story itself is captivating. (And my copy is even signed...yay!)

The book is about a dog named Jiggsy who finds a beautiful diamond necklace. This discovery will change his life in several different ways, but most of all is that he learns the importance of honesty and doing the right thing. I highly recommend buying this book for the child(ren) in your life!

Cost: You can buy A Necklace For Jiggsy for $7.88 from Amazon.com. ($$$)

Overall: We give A Necklace For Jiggsy a 9/10!
