A Little Spark is a fun adventure featuring animals of all kinds. There are many great messages in this book, the biggest being to believe in yourself no matter how others perceive you. There are also great messages about courage and being able to change. The writing is aimed at middle grade readers and crams a lot into a relatively short book. I would have loved more back story into how the world became icy, the animals were saved and the towns developed. Spark's character showed how your size, station, or how the world perceives you does not determine your worth or capabilities. Veen's character shows that it is possible to change your outlook and feelings about yourself and other. The pictures were colorful and lively and did help me imagine the story; however, they could have been better. The book was enhanced with QR codes that led to songs that the characters sang. This was really cool interactive, especially for kids who are new to reading on their own.
