Cute picture book for little ones! We enjoyed the story and illustrations as well as Little Scoot. While it's not my kiddo's favorite, it has a good message!

Little Scoot is a children’s book written by Rebecca Kai Dotlich.

Summary: Little Scoot is asked to do a big task. It would be easy to give up, but she won’t!

My Thoughts: This was a fun little book. A quote from the illustrator states, “For all children; remember that even in bad times, there will always be a flame of light to help you overcome the storms of life.”

Don’t quit-a great premise for a book.

The art was simplistic yet sweet, and helped showcase a message all kids (and adults) need to be reminded of.

I liked it, and especially if you have a child that tends to give up easily, this could be one to add to your collection.

I would like to thank Astra Publishing House for providing me with a free digital copy of this book in exchange for my review. Thank you!

A sweet book about a little tugboat that never gives up. It’s has rhyming phrases and short sentences. It has a good message about persistence and not counting someone out just because they are small. Nice illustrations as well!

A sweet little book about a tugboat and how she is scared but pushes through her fears and is brave to do the job she is called to do. I think kids will really enjoy the story and rhythms of this book.

A sweet little story with a big heart. Little readers will love the tugboat’s journey and older readers will love the snuggly pacing.

What an intense adventure Little Scoot goes on! The pictures do a great job of sharing the drama and intensity with young readers.  Would be great for prediction.

Cute children’s book. The formatting in getting it on my kindle was a bit confusing at first. 

The book itself was super cute. My 5 year old son really enjoyed the illustrations. 

We will read it again I’m sure.

This is a children's book that I read to my twin boys. I think this book is so cute, and my boys loved the pictures in this book. I loved the message in this book so much. This is a great and cute children's book. I was kindly provided an e-copy of this book by the publisher (Boyds Mills Press) or author (Elizabeth Kai Dotlich) via NetGalley, so I can give honest review about how I feel about this book. I want to send a big Thank you to them for that.

Thank you to Netgalley and Astra Publishing House for this ARC.  This was a cute little story about a tiny tugboat being brave.  I love how the book recognized she was scared but that you can feel scared and still be brave.  Adorable illustrations as well, and I love a good rhyming book.  I recommend and will definitely be purchasing for our library.
