The Sharey Godmother is fairy-delightful! Colorful illustrations with a story full of heart and a message that is great for all ages. A must read! – Momma Braga
Discover the magic of sharing in this joyful picture book about the world of fairy godmothers, from award-winning author-illustrator team Samantha Berger and Mike Curato.
Meet Shari, the Sharey Godmother!
She loves to share! Whether it’s her seat on a rollercoaster, her tropical vacations, or candy from her candy jar, it makes her happy to see other people happy.
But some of the other fairy godmothers worry about Shari’s sharing. What is she getting back in return? So Shari tries NOT sharing and soon realizes that giving to others is a big part of what makes her who she is.
The Sharey Godmother is a children’s story that brings out heart, sharing and the great message to be proud of who you are. It is an absolutely delightful read and one that has swooped in to become a family favorite.
We love the messaging in this book and it was done in such a beautiful way that truly helps children to understand. Sharing is an important message; however, my personal favorite was that we should give without expecting anything in return. Growing up that was something my parents taught me at a very young age. This book reminded me of that important lesson as I incorporate that lesson every single day.
Sharing and giving should be done from the heart. The expectation of getting something in return should not be in mind and the reward in itself is being yourself to others.
For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give it 10 fairies out of 5! It truly sparkles with so much heart and it is fairy-delightful! The illustrations are bright, colorful and vibrant. It truly brings the characters and story to life. The story was beautifully written that captures our attention and admiration.
Bursting with color and magic, The Sharey Godmother reveals the joy of sharing for sharing’s sake and the power of generosity to make the world a more giving place.
