The BookViral Review:

Yet another wonderfully cognizant book by Lori Schneider, ‘The Inspiring World of Ella Rose De Fleur’ represents a beautifully illustrated and presented children’s volume.

The thought and care which has evidently gone into the layout and presentation of this collection of poetry is evident as one aspect compliments the other making up a veritable treasure trove of adventure.

Illustrations by Owen Moloney excellently capture the essence of Schneider’s young protagonist, complete with both ‘cross patch’ and delighted faces, all presented in bright technicolour to engage young eyes and minds and give plenty to look at whilst being read to, and to produce chuckles in readers of all ages.

Interestingly, and in line with recent pedagogical research, Schneider does not shy away from ambitious vocabulary, instead using intonation, rhyme and rhythm to make more sophisticated words accessible to her young readers.

Interwoven into the beautifully rhymed verse are messages to inspire confidence, self-belief and resilience, as the young reader journeys with Ella Rose through her life experiences.

Some uniquely chosen subject matter, such as ‘Arts and Sciences’, to create an introduction foundation for later learning, and ‘travel’ to initiate building cultural capital, make this story book not just one of pleasure, but also provide a basis from which ideas, thought process and principles can grow. This last aspect is particularly evident in the heart warming chapters ‘Mom’ and ‘Pets’, as they promote respectful, loving and healthy relationships.

Each chapter is introduced with a reflective quote, which supports the overall theme and concept of the chapter-these create discussion opportunities for parents, carers and teachers to begin the process of encouraging young ones to begin to build their own principles and life beliefs, including their own responsibilities towards others.

A wonderfully thought out and presented story book, ‘The Inspiring World of Ella Rose de Fleur’ is unreservedly recommended.
