Sammy Steals the Show is an adorable book about a cockatiel who loves singing and spending time with his owner Lisa. Lisa works hard all day, but she always comes home to snuggle and watch television with Sammy at the end of her day. Sammy gets his brilliant idea to try out for a singing competition from one of the shows they watch. With the help of his friends, he gets to the Sydney Opera House to try out, but things aren’t what he imagined they would be!
I loved this short children’s book because of the bond Lisa and Sammy have. Animal loving children will love reading and hearing this story read because of this bond. Lisa and Sammy have a connection that all animal lovers will understand! This is a very cute story with sweet illustrations that bring the story to life. I definitely recommend it for your young ones!
