Every little girl I’ve met seems to adore the concept of getting dressed up in fancy clothes and having their chance to make a grand entrance in front of an audience to show off their “cool” new look. The main character in the book Summer Saltz: I’m So Hollywood by author, Connie Sewell, reminds me of that little girl in all of us who so desperately wants to have their moment in the spotlight – but in Summer’s case, a series of events makes her dream come crashing down. The book’s entire theme and story is so easy to relate to as life happens to all of us. It’s not only a fun and meaningful message for little girls, but is great for most parents to relate to who have had to comfort a child after their special day or big event turns into a disaster.
There were many wonderful aspects to this book that would qualify it to be useful for education, homeschooling and Pre-K to Early Elementary age children. From a reading level perspective, it has about 2-3 sentences per page and uses some larger words so it would be for K- Early Elementary level readers. I found it amusing that my daughter’s favorite color in the world is pink, pink, pink and that is one of the words in this book that they tried to help kids learn how to read. The author included the word PINK in a sentence and actually had the print color for the letters be in the color PINK to help reinforce the ability to read it and learn how to recognize it better.
When it comes to children’s books, may it never be said that a book is boring – and this book certainly is NOT! With all its charms and personality shining through the pages, Summer Saltz: I’m So Hollywood even manages to include one key element that I always look for in a good children’s story – and that’s humor. There is a sweet pinch of humor spread throughout the book, but I gotta say…there is one particular page in this book that when my daughter and I read it, she just burst out into hysterical laughter! She had the most infectious giggle from then on whenever she re-read the book. Definitely a winner in my opinion. 🙂
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book together time and time again as the cute and colorful illustrations seem to flow from the pages and allow the character of Summer to jump right into your heart. What a precious account of what many families have most likely already been through with their child – which makes it that much more real and relational. I cannot express just how much we enjoyed this book together, but hopefully you can see for yourself by the precious smile on my 6 year old’s face as she was imitating the character of Summer in the story.
I’d like to note my great pleasure with discovering another priceless moment or lesson of virtue found near the end of this book as well – a heart warming example of the power of friendship. This final message not only melts your heart, but also can’t help but bring a smile to your face and wraps the entire book up quite nicely in a happy ending sort of way.
We give “Summer Saltz: I’m So Hollywood” five out of five stars for great presentation, an adorable story with valuable life lessons, and great illustrations. This is a book every little girl can enjoy over and over again.

Connie Sewell, the Author:
Per the Summer Saltz website: “Growing up with a love for all things girly, Connie has always been intrigued by the HOLLYWOOD lifestyle. Connie created a business that brought all the glitz and glam to life. Her business specialized in creating fairytale birthday parties and themed camps for toddlers to tweens. Summer Saltz was inspired by a collage of personalities from the girls in her camps, but most of all, her own daughter, Summer. Connie happily resides in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina with her husband and two children. If she ever stumbles across a pair of sassy white sunglasses, Connie hopes to be just as HOLLYWOOD as Summer Saltz.”
