This fun story creates an opportunity to motivate the younger generations to think creatively and explore possibilities in their everyday surroundings.


My Review

I received a free copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

The Boy and the Bottle is a cute story about Jimmy who comes up with several ways to use an empty milk bottle while he is walking to his Grandma’s house. The ways he uses the bottle are creative and encourages creativity in children.

Along with the cute story are colorful pictures on every page that will keep the attention of youngsters.

I definitely recommend The Boy and the Bottle for young readers or as a book for adults to read to children.
