Book of the Week: Sassy Cassie

If you have a sassy little one you will find a kindred spirit in Sassy Cassie written and illustrated by PLA Schneider.  This is a cute story about Cassie who likes to enjoy doing her own thing which usually includes checking out her mom’s “toy box” which happens to be filled with loads of fun things to get into such as makeup and paints. PLA does a nice job of portraying Cassie in all her silliness and headstrong ways.  The story takes us along with Cassie as she slips into her favorite princess dress and crown and heads outside to play with her brother.   She then enjoys having her picture taken by her dad and having a make-up tea party with her best pals.

My daughter and I enjoyed reading how Cassie got herself in a bit of trouble as she wanted to add to her mom’s paintings with her own additions… you can just image her mom’s surprise when she comes into her art room to see Cassie and her canvas covered in paint.  A really nice addition to the story is the art lesson at the end of the book.  PLA teaches about The Color Wheel, mixing primary colors with secondary colors and how to make colors lighter or darker by adding white or black.  I found this to be a really nice addition to the story.

I think any aspiring unicorn-riding princess will really adore reading about Sassy Cassie and her fun antics!
