Review Title: Learning To Ask For Help (Review of Giraffe Asks For Help by Nyasha Chikoware)
Reviewer: Janice S. Garey
*** 3 Stars
This nicely illustrated book would make a useful resource for those who work with children who need to learn to find help by asking for assistance. Children have various reasons for not wanting to ask for help. This book will lead them in a positive way to know it is okay and not a scary thing to ask for help. This will be an important message for some children, but the delivery of the message is not as compelling as it could be. I would prefer to see a few more scenarios of what may occur when asking for help to better prepare children for a variety of responses. Of course, some children might find more than one possibility to be overwhelming or discouraging. I am glad to know this resource is available for the youngest children. A more advanced edition for older children would be equally useful.
I received an ebook copy of this picture book from #netgalley free of charge for reading and giving an honest review. I have read the book and given my honest opinion in this review without obligation to do otherwise.
