Blog Tour: Brave and Strong All Day Long

Hi folks, welcome back.

Today we are happy to be a part of the Just Write For Kids blog tour, for Elizabeth Cummings delightful new picture book.

Meet Fiona, a lifeguard. She keeps everyone safe on her beach. Discover her resilience and strength and how she came to be brave and strong all day long. This is the fourth title in this series.

Our Review

As a little girl, Fiona loved to surf on her pink surfboard. The boys sometimes teased her, but Fiona didn't care.  One day, she saw a little boy struggling to swim. She didn't hesitate, she helped him back to shore on her pink surfboard.
As Fiona grew, she often helped the lifeguards, until she joined the surf club.
Her love of the waves and her joy in helping people only grew,  until she became a life guard herself.
Rescuing people became part of her everyday, because Fiona is brave and strong all day long.

A lovely message, about a true hero on the shore. I was delighted to share this story with my little girl, showing her that she can do anything if she puts her mind to it, and no matter what others say, stay true to yourself and follow your dreams.

That's what Elizabeth Cummings book imparts. Bravo!

We recommend for children ages 3-8.
