Come with Me by Holly M. McGhee
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Good concept and a much needed one in this day and age. The little girl is scared about everything going on around her and asks her parents what she can do to make the world a better place. They reply with simple things--going to local grocers, saying nice things to diverse people, riding they subway.
But it really seemed like pages were missing. The "They rode the train through the tunnels underground" was odd--no followup? I'm sure it was meant to reference something about a previous subway attack, but no young person would ever get that message that riding a subway equals winning a battle over fear, especially in my neck of the woods.
And what was the deal with the page about setting the table? That page really seemed out of place, unless it was meant to be an etiquette lesson in the middle of a book about living your life even while bad things are going on in the world.
