Book Description:

Morris is what is known as an advertising column. He has been the heart and soul of the town longer than many can remember. 

Until now. That’s because the Town’s advertising Council-even its mayor-want to replace Morris with a neon billboard. 

Communication. Cooperation. Community. The important lessons learned in this little book!

About the Author:

Doris Rueger emigrated to America and having had to adjust to a new country and culture gave her great insight into the challenges that so many youngters from diverse backgrounds face daily.  A wife, mother and grandmother, Rueger has worked with people from all over the world for over thirty years.

My Review:

Doris Rueger writes very descriptive children’s books.  She illustrates her own books and this book is filled with hand- drawn and colored pictures.  Every left side of the page is a picture paired up with a written page on the right side.  The story tells of a billboard that communicates to the village.  The city council wants to replace the billboard with something more modern, but some children miss the way it used to be and try to fix it up so that their community can cherish the way that things used to be.  This is the second book by this author that I have reviewed.  She writes interesting children’s stories draw in the attention of the reader.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book for review from the author. I was not obligated to write a positive review.  The opinions in this review are my own.
