Albertine's Got Talent - The Review

  • Format: Hardcover
  • Author: Shena Power  Illustrated by: Madeline Valentine
  • Publisher: Henry Holt and Company
  • ISBN: 978-0-8050-8177-0

Dad is a prize winning gardener, Mom can speedily sew complicated outfits, and brother Sam is an expert at soccer, but Albertine needs help uncovering her hidden talents.

Review: Poor Albertine. She can't tumble, can't swim, and just stinks at woodworking. I rather enjoyed the story as a whole. I liked how Albertine's Parents introduced her to new things to help her find her talent.  The Great-Aunt Sophie sequence was fantastic! The illustrations really compliment the story and bring it to life. Other than the font, this is a fantastic read. I'm not a fan of Comic Sans, but that's just me.  A great idea for parents with kids who haven't found their "thing" yet.  I hope you enjoy, Albertine's Got Talent.

Thanks for reading!
