Gracie Meets a Ghost (REVIEW)


Gracie Meets a Ghost

Author: Keiko Sena
Category: Illustrated Children's Book
Suitable for: All Ages, ideal for ages 3-6
My Rating: 4 Stars
Format Read for Review: ARC e-book from the publisher
Pages: 32

Description: Gracie the bunny has poor eye sight so she has to get glasses. Her friends tease her a bit, but she is a trooper about it. One day while playing she accidentally loses her glasses. She spends the night searching for them alone on a mountain. She comes across a ghost but it is unable to scare her because she can't see! The ghost agrees to find her glasses just so they can scare her, but once they find them for her she doesn't even get a chance to thank them because the sun comes up and the ghost vanishes!

In Short: This is a cute book for entertainment. It's very comical but doesn't teach anything. This could be a good book to cheer up kids who aren't happy about having to get their first pair of glasses. This could also be a fun bedtime story.

Pros: This book is well written, well translated, and should be easy for children to read. The art is really cute and funny. The story is quite comical. I liked the part where Gracie kept blindly poking at poor animals thinking they were her glasses. "What a rooooood bunny!" In the end Gracie has her glasses again and is happy.

Cons: I would have liked to have seen a clearer moral/lesson or more emphasis on self-esteem with glasses.

I recieved a free copy of this book in return for my honest review. This post contains affiliate links to Amazon.
