I'm Just a Little Someone - Sharen S. Peters, Amanda Alter

This is a beautifully illustrated book about loneliness and the difference it makes when you have a friend to share things with. The Little Someone of the title is sad rag-doll, until she spots a sad boy-doll on the other side of the toy shop. Once they meet and become friends they are both much happier. And when a toy dog joins them, their happiness is complete.


A very simple story with a moral about friendship, suitable for young children from about 3 to 6 years. It is available on Kindle, which is a plus, as it enables entertaining youngsters away from home without resorting to games or videos on the Ipad.


This book has rhyming text, which I enjoy in children's books, but I need the words to flow to a precise pattern and in places this fails to do that - hence the dropped star.


There are nineteen activities at the end of the book, from counting and naming colours, to drawing faces to express feelings.
