I really like the Amaleigha stories. While I do not have little children I think these books would be enjoyed by children under the age of 9. In this story Amaleigha decides it is important that the school library doesn’t have enough books for non English speaking children and sets up a plan to get more books. Amaleigha is always helping others or making them feel better about themselves. Such a great way to show children how important it is to care for others.

The core idea of this story is really sweet! I love that Amaleighia has such a big heart, sees a need, & wants to help! Thinking about helping the bilingual families in her community is wonderful! However, it was very wordy and did not necessarily flow very well. I do love how everyone came together in the end!

Amaleigha is a back with her proven anything is possible attitude. Like the other book there are bright, colourful illustrations to hold children’s interest.

This story follows Amaleigha’s idea for her community. This book was fun and engaging and left the kids wanting more of Amaleigha.

Anything is possible – this book reinforces that belief. The illustrations were bright and colourful and the storyline was solid. The kids loved it and we ended up reading it a few times.

I must admit I enjoyed reading it as much as the kids did listening to it!

This was a cute story. It shows that with enough determination anything can get done. I like that it pulled the entire community together and especially a book store in a time when a lot of books are readily available electronically.

As with all Amaleigha books, this one is full of hope and kindness. These stories are adorable and compassionate, and inspire change in the sweetest ways. This one in particular was wonderful because there are Little Free Libraries all over our neighborhood, & that recognition was very exciting for us. One of my lifelong favorite poems was also included after the “how to” section as well, so that was delightful! My family has really come to love Amaleigha, & my older daughters even “want to be friends with her” =) I would definitely recommend this book & series to other families with children who want to make a difference.

First time reader of Author Janice Pratt, and not gonna be the last. I think this book was a cute short, easy story to read with your family. I really liked how it shows you how at the end she shows you how to create your own book box. We have multiple in the area I live in. I love them. We stop like once a week to swap out our books for new ones. They also have different books on culture and languages which I also like.

This is a nice story that shows young ones that they can make a difference in the world. Amaleigha is a strong girl who wants to help those that need it. When she realizes the lack of books for the students and their families that speak other languages at her school and neighborhood Amaleigha decides to do something about it. It was nice to see a book about a someone so young doing something for their neighborhood, giving children someone that they can relate to and showing that they can make a difference as well no matter what their age. I liked seeing the multiple languages in the book as well as the instructions in the back on how to do this in your own neighborhood.

Amaleigha Loves a Good Story by Janice Pratt. I love these books so much. They are so cute! This one is about Amaleigha and how big her heart is and how she always thinks of others before herself. When she goes to the library and notices that the bilingual section doesn’t have many books she hatches a plan to change that. Getting help from others that are able to find more books she is able to change her library. This book shows kids of all ages that they can change things to if they really want to. Such a fun book with a great lesson. My 4 year old nephew loved it! This book will be great for gifts as well.

Amaleigh is known for her big heart and how she cares about everyone around her. While at the library one day she notices her school library bilingual section doesn’t have that many books.
Amaleigh hatches a plan to change this!
What a wholesome book for kids about how they can make changes in their world and spark an interest in making their own library. Great for school age kids my 4.5 year old loved this story!

I truly enjoy reading book’s with a pure heart. This author did a great job. Amaleigha is kind, wanting to help others, and feeling safe to share her ideas with others. Current times at times and with certain people we cant do that. So reading this book just makes me feel like we lost touch of that. Needs to be more positive open communication.

Amaleigha loves helping people and recently she’s noticed a need in her local school library. She presents an idea to her teacher and her grandfather, and together with other trusted adults, they hatch a plan to include bilingual books in the school library.

This is a cute book that could inspire a youngster to want to find a way to help others, whether it be a bilingual library like Amaleigha or some other brilliant idea. It also encourages readers to seek out others who may have experience in a given area that could possibly help them to implement their idea to fruition. I also like how this book featured multiple different languages to give young readers a multicultural experience while reading the book.

Another cute story about Amaleigha. A six year old little girl with a heart of gold. She reminds me of my 6 year old son. Constantly so thoughtful and caring. Always thinking of others and how to make them happier and their lives better. In this book, she thinks about other kids who may speak and read different languages, and their need for books in their own language! Such a sweet thought. I hope there will be more in this series.

Amaleigha loves reading! She even goes to the library often. As she visits she notices many people and their different languages. Looking further into the availability she notices, there are not enough books for them to read. So she sets forth a plan, thinking she can do it. Can she? How about getting others involved, will they want to help? Once again this author has written another easy to follow and fun to read for children. I love how Amaleigha gets others involved. As does the author! I look forward to seeing where Amaleigha and this author goes next. I truly enjoyed reading this to my grandchildren.

This was a short and engaging story designed to make children think about the world around them. Although the themes of the story were probably slightly beyond my little ones this book certainly got my eldest interest in libraries. And while she may not have understood everything she loved looking through the images.
This is only the second book by this author that we have read but it was just as enjoyable as the first book. It is one we could all sit down and read together and I am looking forward to us all being able to discover more of her work in the future.

Amaleigha Loves a Good Story is a cute inspirational story. I read it to my 6 year old and he loved it. He said it was a really good idea and she was smart to think of it. He likes that it gives you the steps to make your own little free library. I think this book is a little intense for young children to read themselves. But it is a good book to read to them. Any elementary age would enjoy the story. It really makes me wonder if it’s a true story- seems advanced for a 6 year old though process, but it wouldn’t surprise me either. I love the networking shown to children, to get the community involved in their projects.

Amaleigha Loves a Good Story is another cute book my kids and I loved reading. She tackles a problem of people from other countries not being able to read in her local library, so she has taken it upon herself to try and solve this problem. Being an avid reader myself, I found a little bit of myself in her all over again. My two kids ages 6 and 10 loved the problem-solving and creative ways that Amaleigha takes on problems. After reading this book, my kids asked to go to our own local library to see what books they can get out for themselves. This book definitely planted a seed of loving books in my kids that I hope will grow!

This is my second book in the Amaleigha series and I love reading her stories. Amaleigha is a little girl, but shows a lot of conviction and care towards the community. She comes up with novel ideas, asks for help, spreads the word and makes sure that the plan is set in motion.
In this book , Amaleigha notices that the school library does not offer much to read for people who speak a different language. She herself loves to read and understands the importance of reading . So she sets up a plan so that students who speak different language would have more books to read.
She spreads the word and people come forward to help and raise money. Very soon, the community opens up a bilingual free library.
A very short meaningful story, I love the underlying message and the attitude towards serving the community.

Amaleigha Loves a Good Story is about a sweet girl who always thinks of others. She is very observant and notices things that others don’t. When she finds something she enjoys she wants to make sure everyone else can enjoy it too, so she finds a way to make it happen. In this story, she wants everyone to share her love of books, but discovers that there are not very many books available for bilingual students. She comes up with a plan and gets the community involved in making changes, so that the library has books for everyone.
This is another sweet story that reminds us not only to think of others and be aware that not everyone is as fortunate, but also that we can help others and even little people can make big changes to make the world better for everyone. I definitely recommend this book.

Another really cute story about Amaleigha! For a 6 year old she has such a grown up head on her shoulders and she thinks of such wonderful ideas. I love how this book can encourage children to think about how to fundraise for different things and encourage communities working together. I loved that at the end of the story there is suggestions about how to build a community book box, something that I’m sure children would love to do and be a part of. The story is simple and easy to follow with beautiful illustrations.

This was a great read! I had read another of Amaleigha’s adventures recently and was so excited to see another. I loved how they incorporated a love of reading for this character. Made her very relatable. It was such an inspiring story as well. To make sure everyone has stories to read in their respective languages is amazing!! Would definitely recommend this to friends who have children!

Small eyes, big dreams. Amaleigha is a five year old who has big ideas. She loves spending time in nature. She runs barefoot in the woods, spends a lot of time gazing at the sky. She suddenly has this idea of sharing her experience with someone. She brings up the idea before her parents who whole heartedly support her. Her friends and family join in and together they make a big difference in the community! A cute story to remind children that you can start making a difference to this world at any age. The illustrations were very nice and the plot was neat. I loved the concept.

I loved this story. It was so cute and wholesome. It follows Amaleigha, a 5 yr old who loves the outdoors and nature. She comes up with a brilliant idea and with determination and the help of others, she brings it to fruition. She proves that even young children can have a powerful impact on their community and the world. I hope you read it with your young ones, and I hope it encourages everyone to go out and do your very best for this world. Most of all I hope it encourages everyone to go out into nature more often.

Amaleigha Loves a Good Story by Janice Pratt – Review by Jamie Burns

As an elementary librarian, I adore the book, Amaleigha Loves a Good Story. Amaleigha has the world’s biggest heart and always finds ways to help the people around her. She loves to read books but soon notices that the bilingual section of her school library does not have many books. She crafts a plan to enhance her school library collection and soon has the whole community’s support.

Janice Pratt has a knack for writing amazing stories that show children how to be better people in a relatable manner. One of my favorite things about this book is that it provides a message that children need access to bilingual books at school and in the community. Pratt even included the mayor’s message in different languages which makes the message shine through her book.

Many social-emotional points can be spoken about within the story… Speaking to children about these different points can help them become more like Amaleigha.

– How can we have big hearts?
– How can we help others?
– How can we work together as a community?
– Even as a child, you can do great things.

This book would be a great way to spark the interest of children in creating a little library. Speaking of which, the back of the book provides information about creating a little library.

I also want to give a shout-out to Alina Kralia who truly brings the story to life with vivid illustrations. Kralia does an amazing job even with the smallest details of the illustrations.

As a side note… I have to say that for one of two reasons, the dedication made my heart smile: I serve as a school librarian and I know of a few librarians in the Oklahoma area.
