Life Lessons and Tales of Little MisFit: Book 2 by Dr. SK Grunin centers on the life of Ivy Sue, also known as Little MisFit. Through her daily life experiences, she learns that life isn’t always rosy for us. From her mother cutting her hair short so as to save money to being punished by her teacher for something she had no hand in and continuously getting passed down things from her sister, life wasn't precisely 'fair' to Ivy. However, she realizes from her dad that life will never always be fair. You simply need to make the most of what you are given.
With barely over a hundred pages, this book is easy to read, yet it contains some profound lessons. I thoroughly enjoyed every page and always anticipated the next chapter. Dr. Grunin's use of language is very accessible to everyone, ranging from toddlers to adults. With her detailed descriptions and my use of imagery, I would say I went to school and learned a new life lesson from the author. Her stories brought back long-forgotten memories. Very much like Little MisFit, I was also once punished by my teacher for something that I didn’t do. I burst out in laughter, seeing how she got back at him. I could never have dreamed of doing that to my teacher. I really enjoyed that chapter because I could relate to it. Something else I connected with was the life of the younger child. Just like Little MisFit, the majority of the things I own were passed down from my elder sister. My inner child was happy for her when her dad got her a new bike. She felt blissful in light of the fact that she wouldn't need to lag behind her brother and sister when they went bike riding. I like the central message of this book: life isn't always fair, but we must always make the most of what we have.
Little Misfit is a great model, I must say. The relatable events her character portrays will help kids realize that things that may puzzle or bother them in their own experience may be universal. Her character teaches life lessons in such a fun, personal way. Yes, life might not really be fair to us, but we should remember to always make the best of the situations and opportunities that life throws at us.
I rate this book a 5 out of 5. It is well edited, as I found no grammatical errors in it. I didn't remove any stars because there was no reason to do so.
I recommend this book to both children, teens, and adults who wish to relive their childhood. If you are like me, your inner child would enjoy this book.
