The Pretty Poodle Reviews
"The Pretty Poodle by Angela Majette" which I won from Goodreads Giveaways is an inspiring and heartwarming story about a young girl Mary who wants a poodle more than anything else in the world. Delighted when her parents tell her she can have her pet if she gets 100% on her math test, Mary rises to the challenge but will she be able to meet their expectations?This historical based but fictional story is dedicated to Mary Lou Allison Gardener Little, a woman who founded the Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority in 1922 with six other young professional women so that they could help stir African-American youngsters to follow their dreams and attain greater achievements. Like Mary Lou Allison Gardener Little the young girl in this story sets a goal and with hard work and dedication reaches it. She's not only motivated to meet her parents expectation, but her enthusiasm and diligence extends to her homework and household chores. As Mary turns to her parents for encouragement and love, she gains confidence and learns valuable lessons about developing a strong work ethic and achieving her goals. This narrative with its wonderfully, clear and bright illustrations, its rich African-American flavour warms your heart just as it challenges children and nourishes their dreams.I loved it and highly recommend it.
This sweet historical fiction story is about Mary Lou Allison Gardner Little.As a young school girl, Mary asks her parents for a poodle. She is told she may have her poodle if she gets 100% on her math test.Mary studied hard, always did her chores and is reminded of what her parents tell her, anything worth having is not easily obtained. She is also inspired by her parents hard work ethic with her mom working at a bank and her dad working long hours to buy a family grocery store. After she takes the test, Mary is afraid to look at it, but her teacher says she should get the poodle because of her good grade. When she finally opens the test at home,she is disappointed that her dream of a poodle is gone since she only got an A-. Her mom tells her that she may have the poodle as she gave 100% of her effort to try and obtain her goal. She was rewarded with a sweet poodle she named Sigma.This inspired Mary to set her goals high to accomplish great things in life. In college Mary and 6 of her college friends founded Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority.Children, and even adults can learn important lessons from this book. with hard work and dedication they can meet challenges and accomplish their goals. I received this book from Goodreads First Reads.
I received this book from Goodreads FirstReads.Complete with lovely illustrations, this book pays tribute to Mary Lou Allison Gardner Little by portraying her as a young girl who discovers the value of doing her best in school and being confident in herself, and in return is given a poodle from her parents to reward her hard work. Mary is shown years later creating the organization Sigma Gamma Rho, designed for women to work together to "meet challenges and achieve goals."A good read for children to read with parents, this book has a nice storyline, and teaches some great messages for children and adults alike.
