Randle Finds His Light by Lisa Graham is a children's book about a little candle named Randle who lives in Paris. Randle is different from the other candles in the factory and is very self-conscious about his differences. This book is the story of how he makes friends, grows, and finds his own inner light.

I really enjoyed this story. I think it delivers a great message to children. It shows the value in each one of us, despite our differences. The illustrations complemented the story well. They were just as bright and colorful as the characters themselves. The book also seemed professionally edited. I only noticed one grammatical error that did not take away from the story at all.

It's hard to point out any negative aspects of this book. The story was rather short, and I suppose that works for younger readers. However, the writing style can definitely be enjoyed by slightly older children. So, it would have been nice if the story were a bit longer and the characters able to develop more fully. I would love to read more about Randle's adventures, but perhaps there will be more books about him.

I give this book 4 out of 4 stars. It's a cute story with a unique character. The writing is of good quality, and the story flows at a fast pace. The illustrations are lovely and really bring to life the setting of Paris and the candle factory. In addition to that, it delivers an important message to children.

I would recommend this book to children of all ages. It has pictures that can be enjoyed by a younger crowd, but it also has concepts and wording that can be appreciated by older kids. I think it's a short, sweet story that parents will enjoy reading with their young ones. If you're looking for a children's book, this is great, and there's really no one I wouldn't recommend it to.

Randle the candle is a great rhyme. I enjoyed your comments about the length of the book.

This story is a good book for kids as the cover page is very appealing. I also wonder how Randle made his new friends.
Nice review.

I concur with the assessment that you made. I am intrigued as to where Randle discovered the light and what caused him to start shining. One of my favourite types of books to read is written for young adults. Now this sounds like a book that I would enjoy reading.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17 Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?
17 If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.

Children's books are not my cup of tea but this review makes the book sounds intriguing. I like how the author used illustrations in the book.

Teaching kids at a young age how to love themselves and have self-confidence is a very valuable lesson. I think this book will portray yet give understanding to those ideas easy enough that kids will be able to understand the message no matter the age.

I love children’s books that are short enough to engage younger readers while not compromising the plot and overall message and enjoyment of the readers. I recently reviewed a couple of children’s books which were also short and had interesting plots, which I totally love! Anyway, loved reading your review!
