    The darling text and the colorful, glittery, textured pages are fun, fun, fun! And I love the little surprise of the package the mailman delivers next to the girl’s porch.

    As a glitter aficionado I concede that I may have been subtly influenced (if you can call glitter subtle) in my admission that this is a glorious book. Mainly for the illustrations and the textured illusion of glitter (without the horrible consequence of loose glitter everywhere like you get with some greeting cards). Plus it rhymes, there's a cat (even though it's not black), and a subtle hint of a possible follow up book about googly eyes(?).

  • Tricia

    The illustrations in this rhyming text book are adorable beyond words. My fellow librarian and myself flipped through it at the desk and gasped aloud at the first glitter-ific page. A great read aloud for the glitter enthusiast in your home.

    Amazing artwork, super fun, and my kid loved it. Yay!

    Now I am not a sparkly person. Black is the dominant color in my wardrobe. But this book! Haha…This book made this dark hearted reader smile and shine.

    Too boring, dull or quiet? Just add glitter! To anything or anyone or any place. Come follow along as our young heroine and her cat decorate her world with glitter.

    I loved this little book. It sparkles! The pages have texture and color and enthusiasm. The fun and energy jump off the pages! You’ll feel it. I mean really feel it! You can run your fingers over the pages and feel the glitter. :D

    A beautiful read that just might show readers that we shine every day in our own way with or without glitter.

    Highly recommended.

    Just read the title. How could you possibly go wrong?

    So begins the narrative of this fun rhyming picture-book romp, which follows a young craft-oriented girl and her pet cat, who get a box of glitter in the mail, and proceed to go a little wild. Is there such a thing as too much glitter though...?

    So begins the narrative of this fun rhyming picture-book romp, which follows a young craft-oriented girl and her pet cat, who get a box of glitter in the mail, and proceed to go a little wild. Is there such a thing as too much glitter though...?

    Pairing an entertaining read-aloud text from author Angela DiTerlizzi with immensely appealing multimedia artwork - featuring lots of glitter, or course - from illustrator Samantha Cotterill,

    is the perfect picture-book for young children who love (you guessed it) a bit of sparkle. I found the scene in which the young heroine and her cat are all but buried in piles of glitter particularly droll, and appreciated the ending, in which a new box waits on the doorstep. Recommended to children who love sparkly, glittery things.

    One of my biggest regrets in life is giving glitter to a 10-year-old then walking away. This book forces me to relive that nightmare.

    An unexplained box with GOOGLY EYES shows up on the last page and if the sequel is JUST ADD GOOGLY EYES it will become my BIBLE.

    The little girl featured throughout the story has so much energy, but it's clear that she is also experiencing a lot of negative emotions. That being said, she has found ways to be optimistic and combat that negativity.

    The little girl featured throughout the story has so much energy, but it's clear that she is also experiencing a lot of negative emotions. That being said, she has found ways to be optimistic and combat that negativity.

    The illustrations felt very monotonous. It felt like I was looking at the same three illustrations rotated in a pattern between 38 pages. There wasn't anything new or exciting about them. It was all stuff I had seen previously in the book or overused cliches in the illustration world.

    My big issue is that to us, teenagers and adults, just add glitter is

    a metaphor explaining you can

    bring light into your life regardless how dark or boring it seems. Without any prior explanation, I don't think a child would immediately pick up on that right away in the way we can.

    ➵ Along with the illustrations as aforementioned, the writing seemed very monotonous as well

    it is with purpose, therefore, I am not complaining about it nor upset about it. I was expecting it, anyway.

    While

    is quite the encouraging children's book, it does take at least a

    bit of background for kids to

    understand it. I thought it was cute and all, but I've read better and I

    this one won't fall

    near those when comparing. It fell short on a few imporant aspects, hence my low rating.
