Iggy Loo by Maria Ashworth
Quite simply, Iggy Loo is a penguin that lives in a snow globe. But as he watches the world beyond his glass dome, he begins to dream of being a part of that world. When his dream comes true, he realizes it is lonely outside his globe. The “little redhead” in the story loves Iggy Loo and Iggy Loo loves her. It is she who he misses most when he is no longer in his globe and who ultimately helps him find his way back home.
The book is beautifully and colorfully illustrated, easily catching a young child’s eye. The story itself is sweet and succinct, appropriate for children and with a heartfelt ending that seems to speak to us as parents also. Reminding us of the joy we had for some of the toys of our youth and the wonder we feel when we can share that joy with our children.
The OM Bottom Line: I personally enjoyed the book and my daughter did too as she loves all her snow globes. Striking an unexpected chord in our household, the story also serves as a cautionary tale of what happens when a tiny-fingered munchkin tries to shake a snow globe they have been told not to. So that is an added bonus!!!!
