Marshmallow by Clare Turlay Newberry


Dear Readers,

Marshmallow

I’m going to review this wonderful little book. It’s a Caldecott award winning book, entitled Marshmallow by Clare Turlay. I’m so happy with this book. I found it in a thrift store for .10 cents. I didn’t know what it was, but there was no way I was going to pass up a book for .10 cents.

I got it with the intention of passing it on to one of my great nieces or nephews. I’m not sure. I still may. For now, though, I’m keeping it because I love it so.

Summary: Oliver is a tabby cat who is always the center of attention. Marshmallow is a baby rabbit who moves into Oliver’s home. At first Oliver does not welcome Marshmallow, but the little bunny’s charms are impossible to resist. This is the true story of how Oliver and Marshmallow become friends.

Lesson to be learned: Even if someone is not exactly the same as you, it doesn’t matter. Love is love and it can overcome all differences.

Recommendation: Yes, I highly recommend this book.

  1. This is wonderful, because I have recently been struggling to teach theme to my students! Did you have an idea on how to use this book in the classroom?
