About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

What If? by Melody Carlson


What if I were a ladybug? Or a polar bear? Or a creature from outer space? This fun, whimsical story takes us through some of the amazing creations in our world, and how wonderful it is to be who God made us to be.


What If? by Melody Carlson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I truly enjoyed this new picture book What If? and I believe that the targeted audience will enjoy it also. My granddaughter is a five year old who loves rhyming words and Carlson has chosen to write her book in easy to understand rhyming text to ask the question What If?; she also uses repetition and this is another great way to keep a child's attention. The illustrations are colorful and fun and illustrator Bethany Harris pairs them perfectly with the animals and insects that are being discussed. What If? is fun while it educates and best of all, it is a book of affirmation. In her final two pages Melody Carlson reminds young readers that they are just who they are supposed to be. Carlson writes 'But thank you, God, that I'm the one---The one you planned for me to be! I'm so glad you made me...ME!'

I am giving What If? 5 stars and I can't wait to share this book with my granddaughter!

I received a complimentary digital copy of this book and I have chosen to share my honest thoughts in this review.
