Picture Book Review: Little Leah Lou and Her Pink Tu

I have been excited to post about this new book for a few weeks. Happy belated book birthday to Little Leah Lou and Her Pink Tu written by Teasha Seitz and Illustrated by Jean Ditslear. I have to start by telling you that the illustrations are adorable. Jean Ditslear did a fantastic job illustrating Teasha's adorable story. She even created a dancing icon on Teasha's webpage - check it out HERE.

In this story, Little Leah Lou loves her tutu and takes it everywhere until something horrible happens to it. Of course, Little Leah Lou becomes very sad and has to deal with her devastation for awhile but instead of staying depressed, Little Leah Lou comes up with a creative solution to her problem. This is a great book to share with your children because of Little Leah Lou's approach to solving her problem.

The story is fast paced. The vocabulary is age appropriate as a read aloud or for those early readers. The illustrations are adorable. I have already had to read this story to my daughter four times. She loves the bright colors and the big, bold print.

If you are interested in purchasing this book, you can find it HERE. Please share this post and Teasha's site with friends and family. Jean Ditslear doesn't have an illustrator website yet, but you can find her on Facebook.
