She's a Fixer Upper by Christian Blood, beautifully illustrated by Nina Gvozdeva, is a lovely children’s book enabling parents and teachers to share knowledge about so many trades. It is also extremely entertaining and the rhyming patterns make it sound so nice and lively. You almost feel like singing the words! To top it all, the illustrations are gorgeous and invite children and parents alike to delve into this charming story.
She's a Fixer Upper by Christian Blood is exactly what I am looking for when I need a children’s book for my grandchildren. It is perfectly illustrated, the words are wonderfully selected, the text rhymes in an enchanting way, and the story is particularly engaging. What is more, the story is between a father and his son. It will be perfect to teach the different trades that are explored (such as a plumber, gas man, electrician, and so forth), but also to teach resilience, patience, and hopefulness. Indeed, fixing up this house for rent is a huge undertaking but the father never gives in to hopelessness.
The kid is worried whenever he enters a dilapidated, trash-filled, and dirty room, but his dad always tells him the same things: “she's a Fixer Upper” and “soon, she’ll be all fixed up.” Such positivity, creativity, and hope are very important values for our world in crisis. Teaching young kids to do things step by step without feeling stressed out, without feeling overwhelmed, is essential to their development. That is why I highly recommend this kids’ book!
