Built Together by Mina Starsiak Hawk

I love to read. Most times, I gravitate towards the same genre. Then I feel like I am stuck in a rut. When this happens I need a complete reset. I pick up something that years ago I would never consider. I often pick up a children’s book is when I loose interest in my “To Be Read” pile. Mina Starsiak Hawk’s book, Built Together, was the perfect choice to change my mindset and fill my heart. 

Families are Different

Built Together delivers a wonderful message for children and adults alike! Families, like houses, are truly all different with no two are alike.  And that is ok! For me, it brought back memories of my own childhood, finding out that I was adopted, and then realizing that although I would never be able to have children of my own, my “family” was bigger than I could ever imagine. Years ago someone told me I was destined to have a different kind of family. Mina Starsiak Hawk’s book, Built Together, just reminded me of that and quieted the ache that has been in my heart for many years.

A Son Tells the Story

I love the fact that Mina’s son is telling the story, and leads us to the conclusion that no one ever has to go it alone. So heartwarming! Beautifully illustrated with vibrant colors, the people shown in the pictures are the perfect accompaniment to the story. I can picture Jack reading it to his children someday.

Built Together –  A Must Have

Built Together is a must have for everyone’s library. It offers a great reminder that families are stronger together when built with love, trust and kindness. Way to go Mina…this book is definitely built to last for generations to come! Rating:
