Perfect for fans of animals

When Mr. Heartwood takes a break, Mona the maid feels like she needs to step up to make sure nothing falls out of line. But things are different now because Tilly's brother Henry is in the picture. He hogs Tilly's time, gets a lot of praise, and is always around. Mona finds herself growing jealous of the new squirrel.

Word reaches the Heartwood Hotel that a new hotel is opening soon, which can be bad for business. The staff needs to do something big to draw in customers and keep up with the competition. So, they decide to have a Spring Splash that will be packed with all sorts of competitions. But at the Heartwood Hotel, you never know what a season might bring, and this one has the possibility of going terribly wrong.

I love the animals and illustrations in this book. They are adorable and perfect for children. BETTER TOGETHER teaches that others can help and you don't have to be good at everything. Instead, it's better to have friends who will be there for you no matter what, especially when you're in trouble.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to children starting to read chapter books and those who love animals. BETTER TOGETHER is a well-rounded and heart-warming read.
