Uni the Unicorn by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

We all know unicorns don't exist, they're a fantasy animal.  Did you know unicorn parents feel the same way about little girls?

Random House Children's Books sent me a copy of a galley of this book for review (thank you).  It will be on sale on August 26th, so make a note to pick it up then.

If you have a little princess in your household, you probably have a girl that believes in magic, unicorns, dragons and white knights.  Here's a perfect book for them.

The story begins with Uni, who knows there must be a little girl somewhere he could do things with and play in the meadow with her.  The illustrations by Brigette Barrager are sweet and precious and make you wish you could play with the unicorn!

You then meet a little girl who is sure there are unicorns in the world and there must be special one who would play with her and be her friend.

They both believe despite naysayers.  The only thing that would have made this book better (for me) would be the two meeting each other.  Since they didn't, let your little one imagine what the meeting would be like and how much fun they have.  We all need something to believe in.

Happy reading.
