Alaina and the Great Play by author Eloise Greenfield and illustrator Colin Bootman

Reading Age: 5 -7 years

Grade Level: Kindergarten – 2

Publisher: Alazar Press

Publication Date: May 10, 2021

In this picture book, Alaina, a kindergarten student, is selected to say a line at the end of a second grade’s stage performance at school. Readers and viewers follow her feelings throughout the day as she gets closer to her debut. Happy about the students’ performance, Alaina gets caught up in the moment and decides to show her talents in addition to giving her announcement when her turn comes. My Book Eyes was surprised and let out a laugh. Illustrations are realistic and show characters’ personalities.

Eloise Greenfield was a talented writer. She was well-respected and made several contributions to the children’s book world. My Book Eyes had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Greenfield at a book signing. She will be missed.
