What a beautiful story! This is one that will be loved by all young people, their parents, and grandparents. How wonderful it is to meet Felicity and Sage who are chipmunks living peacefully in a community with other chipmunks such as Pastor Maloney and Mayor Bennett.
M.I. “Pergie” Scarrott uses well-chosen words describing the chipmunks’ forest surroundings of tall ponderosa, living in their comfortable, cozy burrows. The story line moves along quite nicely as we are introduced to the main characters, Sage and Felicity’s new baby chipmunk, Grace. You can easily finish the book in one sitting.
The book best conveys what we want to say about keeping our forest environment safe from careless fires.
This book could be used in a classroom for many different themes:
The Bark Beetle
The Forest Ecosystem
Rebirth of the Forest
Most importantly, this sweet children’s book, Lady Grace is filled with spiritual nuggets that children will learn about through a chipmunk story such as:
Outward and Inner Beauty
Obedience Brings Blessing
When Tragedy Hits
Lady Grace touched my heart as I am a piano teacher and we learn through this story that Felicity teaches piano, too. The author lives in Southern California and I as well. Having seen the devastation of the bark beetle throughout our Palomar Mountain and having been surrounded by three fires and forced to evacuate our home, I highly recommend this book for its wonderful teaching qualities. I love Scarrott’s style of writing and I look forward to hearing more from this wonderful author. Lady Grace, I highly recommend this one. 5 stars!
P.S. Oh yes, have a wonderful new school year ahead!
