"The Boy and the Bottle" is about Jimmy, an 8 year old boy, ready for his first big walk to Grandma’s house. Anticipating his thirst, he prepares a bottle of water to bring along on his journey. Throughout his walk, Jimmy discovers all of the uses for his bottle such as carrying water, filling it with sand to use as a weight, rolling dough at grandmas, and capturing a fire-fly for use as a flashlight. By the end of the story, Jimmy has collected items such as bread, a balloon, a bouquet of flowers, and of course, a bug.
I really liked all the ideas that were in this book. It is so good for kids to use their imagination and to make new things. I do wish that Jimmy was not walking alone, especially in the dark, but it was his first big boy walk and it showed independence. I liked the firefly at the end. It was so cute! I am giving this book a 3/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
