Why read it?

1 author picked The Green Ember as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

The Green Ember is a beautifully descriptive book for children. SD Smith’s ability to weave a picture in your mind is wonderful. I have this on audiobook and loved listening to the story. As a kid at heart, I don’t mind storytelling from the animal’s perspective. 😉 A good story is a good story, no matter who it is written for, and these books are described as “new stories with an old soul.”
