Rating: 5 OUT OF 5 STARS 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Wade is a young moose who discovers one morning that his antlers are “wiggly”.
He is very worried about his antlers falling off because he uses them for so many different things, so he decides to try to stop his antlers from falling off.
In the end, Wade has to learn to accept that he is growing up and that with growing up comes change. He also realizes that change just might not be so bad after all.
The illustrations in this children’s book are simply adorable. I love how the different animals are depicted and that they are not so stylized as to be unrecognizable which I see all too often in children’s books.
There is also a message found in this story that is something every child needs to learn and that is that change is inevitable and that it is not necessarily a bad thing.
I rate this children’s book as 5 out of 5 Stars. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
