Book Spotlight: Natsumi! by Susan Lendroth

The world is going to try to conform kids. We teach them in school to stand in line, raise their hands and sit still. While these are not harmful in any way it is something to see a child be wild, free and creative! I have two that are really like this compared to their more serious older brothers. The love to run, scream and jump. There is something special about this kind of child. Some might try to squash that energy but I love to cultivate it. We are looking into gymnastics and possibly martial arts for the our littles.

In Natsumi! it is a similar situation. The little girl loves to be loud. Many adults try to teach her to be calm but her grandfather sees that she could use her love of being big and bold for something bigger! I love this story and how the grandfather supports his grandchild. Every child needs an adult like that in their life!

About Natsumi!

Natsumi is small but full of big exuberance, and puts her girl-power to good use when she discovers a Japanese tradition as energetic as she is.

When Natsumi’s family practices for their town’s Japanese arts festival, Natsumi tries everything. But her stirring is way too vigorous for the tea ceremony, her dancing is just too imaginative, and flower arranging doesn’t go any better. Can she find just the right way to put her exuberance to good use?

This heartwarming tale about being true to yourself is perfect for readers who march to their own beat.
