Yuni by Stephanie DiCarlo
Age range: 1 years +
Yuni is a cute and fun little story following the adventures of Yuni-corn a corn who grows in the fields and decides to go on an adventure to find her namesake. A unicorn of course! The play on words is of course tongue-in-cheek and adds to the overall sunny tone of the story.
Told in an easy rhyme, the story is light and easy and page by page tells of Yuni’s journey (she even has a travel journal) as she goes in search of the elusive unicorn. I love the hand-drawn feel of the drawings, and I am always a fan of rhyming stories. They are fun to read and I also know they are good for children’s language development.
Yuni makes for a great heroine with her sense of adventure and determination. The story delivers a fun little twist at the end which is guaranteed to make you smile.
BUT, a really important thing about this book is that all proceeds are going to help raise funds for the author’s niece who is fighting Leukaemia. You can read more about it at Books for Jane. Which for me, gives you even more reasons to buy it, and is also why I am so, so grateful for the NHS.
A cute and upbeat book, a great little addition to any unicorn lover’s library. When I asked Aria what she thought of the story, she gave it a double thumbs up.
Buy the book on Amazon.
