Sprout Helps Out by Rosie Winstead Book Review

Sprout Helps Out by Rosie Winstead
Publisher: Dial
Release Date: March 20, 2014

Sprout is small, but she knows she is good at helping. Sadly, sometimes Sprout's helping backfires like she makes her own breakfast only to overflow the cereal or almost vacuums up the cat. Yet, her mom loves her no matter how big the mess is that Sprout makes.

I loved the illustrations, especially the cover illustration where Sprout has picked a giant sunflower for her mother. The story itself felt more like a wink at moms than a story that children will really enjoy, but who knows, children's favorite picture books are rarely logical. My favorite involved a dog hatching from an egg and I don't even like dogs.
