Petra is a tiny pebble who thinks she is a great big island. She is spunky and precious and imaginative, and I love her so much.

If optimism and imagination are your thing, then Petra is the rock for you! Utterly adorable and quirkily cute. I dare you to read this book and not smile. Petra's optimism is paired with beautiful illustrations makes this one of my favorite new picture books this year!

I love Petra! Her motto: "I'm a rock, and this is how I roll." She is a garden rock who imagines all the things she could be: a magnificent mountain, a dog's ball, an island. The possibilities are endless! A fabulous picture book about perspective and imagination.

Who knew rocks could be adorable? This one sure manages it. A wonderful read about the power of imagination.
