Review by Amagine
Do you remember what it was like to be four years old? What kind of games did you play? Who were your best friends? Did you break anything in the house? Did you get in trouble? Do you even remember what you were like when you were four? Unless your memory is exceptional or you have experience with a four-year old, you probably can’t recall those memories, can you? If you read Faith Castonguay’s, And This Wee, I’m positive that will jog your memory. Wee is an active four-year-old girl who is up for any kind of fun and adventure. From dancing with her teddy bear, having tea parties and breaking things around the house, Wee has a very busy schedule! In And This Wee, we get a front row view of the life of a 4 year old.
The first thing that I caught my eye were the illustrations. I felt that they contributed well to the story. I know that children will enjoy the images of Wee dancing, running and playing with her friends. In the story, the author puts the right amount of words on a page so as not to bombard young readers. The illustrations are colorful and the backgrounds on every page are finely done. Without even reading the book, children will enjoy looking at the illustrations and commenting on them.
The character Wee feels like a genuine four-year-old, which is perfect when writing for children. She’s happy, overly curious and full of so much energy that it sometimes causes accidents. Both children and adults will relate to her character. Children will relate to her because she serves as a reminder of themselves. Adults will relate to her for either the same reason or she serves as a reminder of another energetic four-year-old they know.
While I enjoyed the character and the illustrations, I was a bit disappointed with the plot. The story is basically an introduction to the character and it doesn’t serve any other purpose. It’s just pages of Wee jumping into one action after another. The plot simply lacks content to me. In every children’s story, there should be something that children can gain after reading it.
Even though, I wish there was a better plot, it was still an entertaining read. I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars. The character, Wee, is someone who I feel children will have a real connection to. They will also enjoy looking at the different illustrations in the story. The plot is a little lacking, but the illustrations are strong enough to make this book worthy of being in a child’s book collection. I would recommend this book to children between the ages of 3 and 5. I would also recommend this to any adult who wants to try and remember what it is like to be a child again.
