'Noni Speaks Up' by Heather Hartt-Sussman with illustrations by Geneviève Côté is about a young girl with a tough choice to make.
When we meet Noni, we see that she is a kind girl who gives up her seat on the bus and opens doors for people. She has a harder time standing up for Hector when he is bullied at school. If she sides with Hector, she might not have anyone to play with and she might not be popular. The decision weighs really heavy on her. Will she make the right choice?
A timely book about speaking up to help others. The theme is bullying which might be a bit old for the intended audience here, but learning these kind of things before school might not be so bad. The illustrations are nice and I was quite taken by Noni's dilemma. I think it makes a point without being preachy.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Random House of Canada Limited, Tundra Books, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this delightful ebook.
