It’s time to share the Reading Club reviews for The Highest Number in the World!
The Highest Number in the World
Written by Roy MacGregor | Illustrated by Geneviève Després
Hardcover | 32 Pages | Ages 6-9
“MacGregor’s writing packs an emotional punch without relying on sentimentality…Expressive pencil drawings, brightened with color washes, perfectly capture the characters’ feelings…A memorable, intergenerational picture book perfect for sharing.”– Starred Review, Booklist
- Adrienne at BooksandBassets likes that it’s about “girl power and historical context.”
- Lee-Ann at Goodreads thinks the book does “a wonderful job at showing how if you look at disappointment a different way it is possible to see it as an opportunity to discover something else and just as thrilling.”
- Mary-Esther at Sister’s Library calls it a “sweet story that warms the heart.”
- Stephanie at The Nomadic Reader felt the story “resonated with [her] as a Canadian and of course as a lover of hockey.”
- Ann Marie at a dainty dish calls it a “hat-trick – in its story, words and images!”
