“Talee and the Fallen Object” is about a beautiful, brown skinned, eight year old girl named Talee who loves reading, writing, the color purple, wild puffy muffins, going on adventures, and her parents. She lives on the planet Gala which has two moons and enormous, flying animals called Calpas, which are used as modes of transportation.
One day, she notices from her window an object has fallen from the mail carrier (called a mail flyer) and she is very curious to find out what it is. Here begins the adventure!
In this book, children learn the importance of safety, communicating with parents, consequences of your actions, responsibility, and adventure. I loved the simplicity of the story telling, the bright colors, and the fantasy world. I also loved that the book came with coloring pages and word puzzles, which can be downloaded at the Worlds to Discover website.
