Reviews Petra

  • Nikki
    3.5 StarsThis is a children’s picture book that talks about ‘rolling with the punches’, and not getting flustered over what life throws at us, but rather just to roll with it. Probably a book that a few adults would find helpful as well.Received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
  • Brooke
    “Petra” is a pebble who thinks she is a mountain. Along the way she thinks she is other things too: an egg and an island. Overall this book teaches children that they can be multiple of things and all be acceptable. I thought Petra was a cute and clever way to show this. It’s a very simple and quick book so small kids should easily be able to follow the story. The color scheme and illustrations are beautiful.

    A cute tale about a rock with a big imagination.
  • Carla Johnson-Hicks
    One of the best things about childhood is being able to imagine you are anything you want to be. Petra is a rock who has a wonderful imagination. She also makes the best of whatever situation she is in. The illustrations are wonderful in this story and considering she is a rock, her facial expressions are fantastic. A great little story to read and talk about being whatever you want to be. A nice addition to a school, classroom or family library....

    Petra is a rock and this is how she rolls.
  • Paperclippe
    I’m a better person for having read this. That’s how I roll.

    Perfecto para fomentar la creatividad y la imaginación de los pequeños.
  • Alisha
    This was amazing! I'm not just biased because my friend's D&D character is an Earth Genasi named Petra either. Highly recommended for toddlers and preschoolers.

    PETRA is. too. cute. She's a boulder, convinced of her own strength and stability. But then she's carried off by a dog, and flung away by a human, and knocked out of a bird's nest, and she becomes an insignificant pebble. Or an egg, or an island, rife with possibilities. This precious, cheeky book uses minimal text and delightful illustrations to show that just as change can be scary and frustrating, we can all undergo endless transformations, be...

    Petra is a mountain. Of a sort. An egg. Of a sort. An island. Of a sort.Who knows what Petra is and what he will become? No one knows, not even Petra. You will love this little story of Petra's adventures, growing and changing, always excited about the future, delighting in wherever he is and wherever he goes.

    This book was one of the most adorable books that I have ever read! It was short and sweet, the art was very pleasant, and there was also a good amount of humour! Actually, I found this book to be quite funny. There’s definitely something in this book for for readers of all ages. I found it to be cute, and enjoyable, and I also like that there is a hardcover option, considering that it’s a children’s book, and kids can be quite rough on the...

    Meet Petra. She's an eternal, unmoving mountain. But, wait - a dog picks Petra up and brings her to its owner, who tosses her into a bird's nest. No worries. She's an egg, loaded with potential, once she hatches. Oops, nope... Mama Bird has returned, and tosses Petra into a lake. No problem. She's an amazing island! Oh... now, she's in a young girl's room, where she's transformed... into something new and exciting. You see, Petra isn't stressed a...

    Petra is a rock and this is how she rolls.Petra is the story of a rock who is underestimated by the people around her. Set in the plants she is a mountain. In the pond she is an island. She's full of potential, but people keep telling her she's a rock. A pebble. They send her flying. After every setback Petra reinvents herself to fit her new surroundings. Petra is about perspective. It is also about life's ups and downs.I loved Petra from the co...

    what a wonderful little book! Totally in love with the little "rock".The story is about a fun adventure of an adorable little rock defines herself, encourages herself and adapt herself. The meaning behind the story is very subtle, and one has to really take a step to think how things evolve in the story. It is fun and meaningful. Although I have to point out that the deep meaning down there is not so easily discoverable. For the "change of circum...

  • Rebecca
    What is Petra? A rock? An egg? A mountain? This picture book's ultra simple illustrations have a texture and deadpan comedy that echoes Jon Klassen; it has lots of imaginative possibilities, including flannel board adaptation and connection to a rock painting program.
  • Elisabeth
    Reading a picture book THIS good and fresh is rather rejuvenating!
  • Alyssa Tabor
    Cute picture book about a rock and going with the flow. Would work for storytime, and would also be good for a rock painting program.
  • Kristina Jean Lareau
    Just wonderful.
  • Nick Swarbrick
    Spare illustration and few words bring a real freshness to a small rock with big ambitions...
  • Kendal
    This is absurdly cute. Petra’s facial expressions are A+.

    Dream big, even if you're just a rock. But if you're a rock then you can't it...
