Consumer Critique: King Burue Changes the Rules

Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. 

When Natalija Bajlo was eight years old, she had an idea for a children’s book that would entertain as well as deliver some important messages for kids.  Now that she is nine, the book has become a reality.  KING BURUE CHANGES THE RULES tells the story of King Burue the goose, who falls in love with Kimiko, a parrot. Unfortunately for them, one of the rules in kingdom is that “A goose shall only marry a goose.”

Disappointed, King Burue goes on a search and discovers that it's really just a silly old rule, and plenty of different animals are helping - and loving - each other. It's a child's view of the idea of diversity and the silliness of being unwilling to accept others in spite of differences. It's also fun to read books written by kids to other kids. They really speak at the right level, and it's great for kids to know that even though they're young, they can still do something pretty amazing like publish a book!
