The Yellow Hummer by Ivet Graham-Morgan
Genre: Children's fiction, beginner reader
The Yellow Hummer is a Christmas story about a little boy named Jordan who gets a yellow Hummer with a remote control from Santa. His grandma helps him open it, but the wire gets cut and Jordan is upset that his toy won't work the way it's supposed to. He is upset for a while, but then forgives his grandma because even though it doesn't work the way it was made to work, the hummer isn't broken, and he loves his grandma more than his toy. The Yellow Hummer strives to show that people are more important than things.
The Yellow Hummer had nice illustrations, though they weren't fantastic, and was written pretty well. There are some pretty big words, like atmosphere and successfully and troublesome, as if the writer is trying to introduce some bigger words into children's literature and daily vocabulary. There isn't too much text on one page that you'd lose a kid's attention, either.
Recommendation: Ages 4-7
