Milana and the Escalator Reviews
Have you ever gotten down and looked at the world from your child's point of view? When you are 3 apples high, everything is exciting and new! You just feel like you have to run over and touch everything! As an adult we forget how exciting the world is and expect our little ones to stay close. An almost impossible task sometimes when there is such a great big world out there to explore!"Milana and the Escalator" by Lou Silluzio is the story of Milana, a cheeky little girl who loves to explore. When Milana gets excited she has a bad habit of running off without thinking of the consequences. When her Grandfather takes her shopping and she runs off, Milana learns a valuable lesson about following instructions and staying close to her grandfather.There is such a great lesson in this story for our children about following the "rules". It was a great reminder for my children that when someone tells them to do (or not to do something) there is usually a valid reason...even if they can't see what it is at the time.The illustrations are bright and colourful. My kids loved to look at them. They fit perfectly with the story, you could see each of Milana's emotions through the expressions on her face."Milana and the Escalator" takes an everyday situation and turns it into a valuable lesson. Each time Milana would run away, the kids and I would try to guess at the hidden dangers around her. It was a great conversation to have. As my kids are getting older I've been giving them more and more freedom, it feels good to know that they are able to see the dangers around them.The author, Lou Silluzio’s is Grandfather of six. His grandchildren are the inspiration for his stories. A third battle with prostate cancer spurred him to follow his dream of creating a series of books as a legacy for his grandchildren. He donates 10% of the book’s profits to the Epworth Medical Foundation.*Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of "Milana and the Escalator" in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
This story is about a mischievous little girl who likes to wander off. I read this beautifully written and illustrated story to a class of Year 4 students (9-10 year olds). They were caprivated by the story and it provided a great point for discussion about the perils of wandering off.
This is a very cute little book. My granddaughter enjoyed me sitting in bed reading it to her. I liked the lesson it taught about not running away.*received from goodreads giveaway*
Review soon to come! Wanting to get my grandchild's opionion first.
My two little boys loved the book. With a lesson for all mischievous children, that think it is funny to run away. I still laugh when we take the boys shopping and they ride the escalator.
http://kachildrensbookreviews.blogspo...We received this book to give an honest review.Milana is a young girl who when she is around her family she likes to run off. Which we all know is not good. So one day her grandfather asks her if she would like to go shopping with him and he promises her a surprise if she doesn't run off. Sounds pretty good right? Well what do you expect she does a big no no and runs off. When she finds herself getting hurt she learns her lesson and that is something that sometimes has to happen for young ones to understand. K and I both enjoyed the story and the reason I gave this book a four is because K said well what was her surprise? Also why didn't she apologize to the people she knocked over when she was falling down? Which to me makes perfect sense. He did say he would tell other people to read the book and he liked the pictures as well.
A lot of the my book ideas come from observing and listening to my grandchildren. Children have much better imagination than we have because their minds aren't cluttered with garbage like ours .I hope you enjoy reading Milana's story as much as I enjoyed writing it. Please leave a review to let me know what you thought. Thank you.
