Lunk by Connor Anvar

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I love seeing children’s books that inspire children to love who they are. There are so many influences in the world pushing people to be the way others are, and it is important to remember that being you is special too.

Lunk is a chicken who wants to be special. He is given a magical object that allows him to be the version of himself that he thinks will be better. When he visits his friends though, they don’t even recognize him, and they don’t believe that Lunk is standing in front of him. Lunk learns that being something he is not, isn’t as great as he thought it would be.

Lunk is an adorable chicken but doesn’t realize how great he is. I loved his character journey as he thinks he has stumbled upon a wonderful gift but soon finds that being himself is perfect.

The illustrations in this one were fun. The fancy version of Lunk is so bright and colorful, he really pops on the page. It helped to reinforce the story of changing yourself because his changes are so visible.

I found this to be an easy to understand story that the kids enjoyed listening to and discussing after reading. Lunk was a great character and easily related to. I think lots of children will enjoy this one!

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend Lunk to any child in preschool through early middle-grade.
