This story about a young girl who never finishes what she starts and then blames her failures on not having enough time was a lunchtime read-aloud with my older daughters, ages 3 and 5. Though time management isn't something we're working on just yet, the girls really related to the disappointment of Lydia's brother Andy, whom she lets down with her flighty behavior. We all also really enjoyed the brightly colored illustrations that evoke the island beach that Lydia and her family call home. Both the animal rescue aspect of the story and Lydia's efforts to make up with her brother also engaged my listeners and they both seemed surprised and pleased when Lydia finally learns to follow through on her commitments.
