Review: Where is Simon, Sandy? by Donna Seim

Based on a true story, Where is Simon, Sandy? tells the tale of Simon who lived on the island of Grand Turk and his donkey Sandy. Water was hard to come by on the island so Simon and Sandy would get up early each morning, fill empty pails with water from one of the two wells on the island and delivery them throughout the town.

One morning the people of the town find Sandy walking the same delivery route, alone with no Simon and no water. Unexpectedly we learn the true meaning of determination when Sandy’s persistence and intelligence saves the day.

I absolutely loved this book. It was a cute tale that makes a perfect storytelling book for kids. I even got teary eyed on one part of the story but don’t worry there is a happy ending. I highly recommend this book for parents who love reading to their children.

Love the fact that it's based on a true story. I don't have any children myself.
