LoveReading View on The Little Red Kite

The Little Red Kite is not only a beautiful little story but one so wonderfully illustrated. With a simple premise at its centre, the heart of this book is immense. A basic premise, the tone is happy and the rhyming flows off the tongue and so naturally throughout. This is a joy to read out loud but is also manageable enough for emerging readers to grasp and read alone. A tale of friendship and the mere pleasure of just being happy with life, I had initially felt a little apprehensive about reading about a kite as the main character! I did wonder how you could actually build enthusiasm and indeed empathy with such a choice – but I was proved wrong. This is a lovely book that I’m sure readers will want to return to time and time again. Perfect as a pick me up, and a book for the shelf, it’s also a great comforting bedtime read.

The Little Red Kite Synopsis

Fly into this story and discover what happens when a sudden breeze pushes The Little Red Kite down towards the trees! The journey of The Little Red Kite and his new found friend is beautifully captured by the charming illustrations of Illustrator Nicholas Child. This book is perfect for children aged 2-7 years and will make a great bed-time read or new addition to your child’s library. This cleverly written story will introduce your child to rhyme and its rhythmic pattern will encourage them to join in with the words too! Whilst working in the Early Years, Ellie Brown found her passion for writing her own children’s stories after learning the importance of sparking children’s imagination through reading.
