June Book Report - Uni the Unicorn

Ah summer! The unofficial time to read ALL the books! If you're anything like me, you've got a stack thigh high waiting for your attention, which is where kid's books come in. Picture books are way shorter, easier to read, and involve less commitment than adult books, which is one of the reasons I love them so much. (Plus, colorful illustrations. Duh.) I use children's books a lot in my creative dance classes, and one of my most anticipated programs this summer is Unicorn Dance Camp, so with that in mind, June's Book Report is about one of my most favorite unicorn books ever.

UNI THE UNICORN by Amy Krause Rosenthal

Uni is a typical unicorn (magical, spirited, beautiful), except she believes that there is such a thing as little girls. All her friends and her family just smile knowingly when Uni brings her beliefs up, convinced that she'll grow out of that silly belief, but Uni just knows.

I won't give away any of the rest of this fairytale story that turns tradition on its head, but the gorgeous illustrations by Brigette Barrager draw readers of all ages right in, and will have you all questioning what you really believe in by the end. Plus, there's now a sequel! Uni The Unicorn And The Dream Come True picks up where the first book left off, so the fun can continue!

I can't recommend this sweet series enough, for anyone in your life who loves the magical, or maybe needs to be reminded that believing is at the heart of wonder, these books are for you. Now, I'd love to know - what's on your nightstands these days? Share, comment, and let me know!
