Review: The Yellow Hummer by Ivet Graham-Morgan

What has Santa brought Jordan this year?

A shiny yellow Hummer! It is a gift that would please any little boy, and Jordan is excited to show it to his beloved grandmother. But a terrible mishap occurs, and Jordan is very sad-that is, until he makes a very important discovery. Are things more important than people? It is a lesson that will forever stay with him.

Received from the publisher for review.

This one gets three stars. It was a quite cute children's book with nice illustrations. I didn't really understand what year this was supposed to take place in since the remote control for the Hummer had a cord, but I can get over that. There were also some clothing continuity issues in the illustrations with Jordan's outfits which were mildly distracting. I'm also not entirely sure of the story's moral as it was a bit confusing. Nonetheless, this was a cute story that many children might enjoy.

★★☆☆ = Liked It
