What A Bragger! by Lee Ann Mancini and Dan Sharp

$7.99 Soft Cover
$16.99 Hard Cover
About the book: Melissa Blowfish likes to brag that she can swim the fastest, climb the highest, and has the best of everything. Corey finds her crying in the sand box with her broken shovel, the only toy she had. They all chip in treasure coins for her birthday present. Melissa prays, giving thanks to God for her friends, and learns they are more important than all the toys in the sea.

Lee Ann Mancini and Dan Sharp have created an underwater world that explodes with color, drawing the children into the captivating story.“

My thoughts:   I previously reviewed Lee Ann Mancini's Fast Freddy here on Chat With Vera. Mancini defly uses lovably cute illustrations and a sweet story to teach good behavior and good character traits. In What A Bragger! a blowfish is all puffed up and full of himself and thinks he is better than the best of the other sea critters.

Illustrator, Dan Sharp, has again created a brilliantly colored pallet of fish and other under-the-sea characters to tell author Lee Ann Mancini's story of being kind and not a braggart. His cute cartoonish styled creatures inhabit the pages of What A Bragger! ...

The story gets behind the reason Melissa the Bragger boasted about things and abilities. The reveal comes when Melissa goes home to poverty and squalor. Children can learn the folly of bragging and can also learn compassion for those who have less than themselves. They can be led to conclusions that will aid them in their own real life situations.

This is a cute book that is Christian orientated with praying to Jesus a vital element.

A visit to is definitely in order.
