Review: Lionel and the Golden Rule (Lionel's Grand Adventure) by Paul R. Hewlett

Lionel and the Golden Rule (Lionel's Grand Adventure) by Paul R. Hewlett 

My rating 5/5 stars

I received this book from the author for an unbiased review.

Lionel is adorable! Although he tries his very best to stay out of trouble he often finds himself in it! Lionel discovers a lucky charm in his closet that gives him the ability to make wishes. 

This is a great moral story as Lionel discovers he can make things easier by using the lucky charm, or by doing the best he can on his own. He learns to use the lucky charm only when he really needs it.

I really liked that this story took place in the 60's, no cellphones and just simple baseball games to worry about.

Children: I think this would be best for boys around age 7-12 depending on their reading level.

Parents: I also believe that parents would enjoy this story to read on their own or to even read to their child. 

This is truly a book for all ages!

    1. I definitely recommend it. Also there is a book kit http://paulrhewlett.weebly.com/book-kit.html on his website. It has tips and topics to discuss with the children after they read it. Thanks for your comment!

  5. I believe all childrens stories need to have a good moral behind it, and it sounds like this is one that does! Reading this review makes me think of all the days when I first started reading with my favourite picture books ^^
