Perfect book for child AND adult! A must read!

This was purchased as a gift for my 6yr old daughter. I bought a tutu that is pink and compliments it. We read through the book as she asked questions. I like the artistry throughout the book and how the story lines were highlighted like they were in puffy clouds. Very cute. My child was excited to know Pearl was a real person as we continued the history side of the book. We very much enjoyed it!

Perfect Book for Young Kids and Parents - Beautiful Illustrations!

I bought Little Pearl’s Circus World for my five year old daughter. She loves it, as do I! The story is simple enough for her to understand, but informative enough that we have already had many conversations about animals, the circus, and what she wants to be when she grows up. Priceless! Erica Pastecki’s illustrations are beautiful throughout and the section for adults is fascinating. Great book – totally recommend it!
