In this book, Lilly has committed to reading a poem for a big talent night. Then she receives a flute from her aunt as a gift and decides she will play it for the talent night instead. Even after much practice, Lilly finds that she really is no good at playing the flute... a story many can relate to. In the end, Lilly decides to read a poem about wind and incorporate her bad flute playing as the flute making sounds of the wind. Lilly is kind, smart, determined and a good problem solver who thinks outside the box. She is a good character model for young readers. The story has a quick pace, is fun and has an enjoyable plot for little readers.
Lilly the Elf chapter books are perfect for beginning chapter book readers that need to build feelings of success and accomplishment. The entire series features short, manageable chapters, pages with big font and many adorable line art drawings that successfully help to tell context of the story and will entertain even the most reluctant readers. This set would also be ideal for advanced young entering into chapter books for the first time.
