The Adventure of Baby Jaimie Hope Review and Giveaway

Book Description
From the minute she met him everyone thought Baby Jaimie's first crush was
Derek. Derek even thought so. That's why he asked her first grade teacher,
Mrs. Smith if he could come visit her. The day of the visit didn't go as
planned. While Derek was introducing himself a new student, Jack, entered
the room and stole everyone's attention. Especially Baby Jaimie's. For
that reason Derek took an instant disliking to the new kid. Baby Jaimie is
forced to choose between Derek and Jack and she doesn't know what to do.
Is there a way to combine old friends with new friends? Can't they all
just get along? Find out in The Adventures of Baby Jaimie: Baby Jaimie Has
A Crush.

My Review:
I was asked to read this and read to my daughter to give my honest review on this book in the tour.
Well, obviously I am not a child so I read this book to my six year old daughter. First I will tell you what I thought of the book and then I will tell you what she thought and said throughout it.

My thoughts.......It was an okay story. The graphics are not as good as you normally see however you do have to keep in mind it is a children s book not a adult book and a child's mind finds pictures more entertaining if they look like something another child has done. However, I must admit some of these photo's were a little on the boring side and could of been a little more attention grabbing for the child as well as the adult whom may be reading it to them. The story itself was alright. It had a good moral to it for the age group about how to treat others, jealousy is a major dislike in anyone and showed something you don't see very often anymore....child talking to parent. That right there was great to me because let's face it...It seems more and more children are not talking to their parents and vice versa. So, this showed a good example in those areas alone.  However to many questions were unanswered, like why was Derek there for show and tell exactly and why were Baby Jaimie and Derek in a wheel chair (without the photo's we would not of even known they were in a wheel chair for the first part of the story). Yes, it's a kids book however read my daughters responses below and understand why those unanswered questions are important.

My six year old daughter's questions throughout the book.
Why is she in a wheel chair mommy?
Why is he in one too?
What happened to his legs?
What is jealousy? ( Very good time to talk to your child here about this subject)
Why are they making fun of him? (Also, wonderful time to have a discussion with your child)
Mom! They should not be fighting! That's bad! ( Very happy my girl know's this!)
Overall she said the story was okay . I'm sure your child will have the same questions as my daughter did so be prepared for those. There's only one way to find out though! That's to get your own copy :) 

I give it 3.0 stars.  Had lot's of potential but just did not pull through for me.....
