GUYS. This book is so cute! I was given a second copy (I sent the first one I bought to one of my nieces as a birthday gift) by the author. I was seriously so excited to receive my copy in the mail!
I love children's books. Maybe it's because I'm just a kid at heart. Maybe it's because of the pictures. Maybe it's because of the great stories. Maybe it's because of the lessons that are taught so simply. Or probably it's a combination of all of those things.
I loved The Enlightenment of Clive the Misunderstood Warthog because it not only taught a great lesson but it also taught me new words! There is a glossary in the back of the book (supposedly for the littles) and I loved being able to flip back to the glossary and add a new word to my vocabulary!
I was going to leave this out, but I just can't. I know the author personally and she has been a major cheerleader in my life since meeting her. I was so excited for her when I found out she was publishing ANOTHER book! As soon as copies went on sale through her kickstarter, I donated to the cause and signed up to follow along!
Becky Lyn is a lady with the neatest story. She has never given up in time of trial. She's lived in over 75 different places. She has the funniest grandkids you'll ever meet and the feistiest kitties named Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley. Her writing is totally unique and her voice is strong. She's taught me so many lessons about loving everyone in the time I've known her and The Enlightenment of Clive the Warthog is just another story of love that I get to add to my shelf of Works by Becky Lyn.
I love supporting causes and people that I know are so, so good. Becky Lyn is one of those people that is just warm and totally worth supporting.

My Amazon Review of The Enlightenment of Clive the Warthog: "The Enlightenment of Clive the Misunderstood Warthog was ADORABLE and very educational! Even as a 23 year-old, I learned new words from Clive! This book, although written for youngsters, can help people of all ages! Not only does it teach new words but the overall story is a message of kindness and friendship that you won't want to miss!"
