“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)!
