I was granted complimentary access to Family Fun at the Lake by Katelyn Prendergast as part of my participation in a blog tour for this title with Goddess Fish Promotions. Thank you to all involved in affording me this opportunity! My thoughts are my own and my review is honest.
Family Fun at the Lake by Katelyn Prendergast is a cute little story about all the fun things a little girl and her extended family do when they’re at their cottage at the lake. There isn’t much of a high-stakes plot or anything going on, it’s just a kid’s perspective on the activities of an ordinary weekend away, but I can see it being entertaining to young kids at story time when combined with the illustrations. Once the family gets to the lake, multiple activities are described in the text of each page spread but the illustration usually depicts fewer, so a good jumping off point for getting kids involved in the story is to ask them which events described match the illustration.
As for the illustrations, they’re colourful and consistent digital art pieces in a distinct style. It’s not my taste, personally. The broken outline style with the flat (unshaded) digital colouring feels a little unfinished to me. That’s not to say it’s bad, though! I’m sure kids will find lots to love in these illustrations, and it might be a cherished favourite art style to others.
About the Author
Katelyn Prendergast grew up in the Alberta prairies where she spent the majority of her time at the family lake cabin, which inspired her creative side for crafting, painting, and her great passion for writing. She still lives in the prairies with her husband and two spirited young daughters, where she is as comfortable bingeing a great show as she is spending the day outside with her family. As it is, the only thing that could rival her love of family is a mug of hot chocolate on a frigid Canadian night. Her first book, Family Fun at the Lake, reflects the simplicity of her life as a child and mirrors those feelings in watching her own children grow up.
