What I loved: This touching picture book gives value to art, whether written or drawn, and shows many different ways of expressing oneself. The message of finding your own way/what works for you is a great one for young readers. The illustrations are softly beautiful, and they depict the story perfectly. I also love the given examples of poetry, song, and story that add something extra to the story. The font is easy to read aloud, and the story is very cute and easy to grasp. There are also secondary themes of friendship and the value of feeling understood.
Final verdict: LOST FOR WORDS is a sweet picture book about expressing yourself with art. This is a great one to share with young readers from preschool through elementary school age.
