Book review: Barefoot by Marnesha Augustine

Barefoot by Marnesha Augustine
⭐⭐ out of 5

This is an OK book, but the author has obviously self published it as it's only 11 pages long instead of the industry standard 28 or 32 pages.

The author also concentrates more on the adults POV rather than the child's which wouldn't interest a child at all... picture books need to be focussed on the child main character, about things children are interested in and talking in a child's language.

It's focussed on an adult main character, trying to educate the child rather than having a child main character wanting to learn about something.  A child wouldn't get past the first page before getting so bored that they don't want to listen to any more.

It's a good idea, just very poorly thought out and in need of being more than double the length.
