When no one can find a pink fluffy rabbit to buy for Tallulah on her birthday, Grandma gets creative with her knitting needles. But the surprise Tallulah lifts out of the box is not a rabbit, it’s a pink fluffy . . . thing, named Milo Armadillo. He’s athletic, musical, and great for sharing adventures, but Tallulah’s friends say he’s funny-looking. What can poor Milo do to make Tallulah happy? With humor, poignancy, and a nod to the out-of-the-ordinary, this sweet story shows that if you can’t be with the one you want, you can definitely love the armadillo you’re with.
My daughter and I both rave about this adorable children's book. MiloArmadillo teaches a wonderful lesson of being happy with what your given. It could turn out to be better than what you wanted. Coming from a crafty family we were very impressed with the mixture of illustration that combined drawing and knitting or crochetting. That simple variation was entertainment for the entirety of this book, and helped us better relate to the book. Definetly an excellent read and lesson for children.
