Rachel Fister’s Blister

Rachel Flister's Blister by Amy MacDonald “Rachel Fister found a blister on her little left-hand toe.”

You might think that a story about a blister on someone’s toe would be gross. And it kind of is. But this is exactly the kind of grossness children love.  The rhymes are short, appealing, and easy to predict, which small children should love.  The tale is about a young girl and the story contains characters of various ethnicities including a Jewish rabbi and an African American pastor.  While most of the other multicultural characters are in the background, they are at least depicted.  This is a fun tale and a quick read.

As an added bonus, I picked this book up second hand at a yard sale or thrift store and the book is signed by both the author and the illustrator (Amy MacDonald and Marjorie A. Priceman)!

I give this book 3 paws!

Stopping by from SITS! I just love Winnie the Pooh from your About Me page! Good luck with the challenge!

Just stopping by for the 31DBBB! I just checked out your About Me page – I think that’s where your elevator Pitch is… I like it. I would say that is your LONG version – have you worked on a shorter one as well? Good Luck in the Challenges!
