Standard

Good Day Folks,

Cindy Springsteen is Kidtales’s featured author this week.  https://www.facebook.com/Kidtales 

91ycziLj45L._SL1500_Waffles and Pancakes: A Lesson in Bullying By Cindy Springsteen

 Waffles and Pancakes, along with Danny and Griffin, their owners, as they come face to face with a couple of bullies; Tom and his guinea pig, Oscar. Will Waffles, Pancakes, and their owners be able to become friends with Tom and Oscar? Find out when you read Waffles and Pancakes: A Lesson In Bullying.

This sweet story has Two hamsters Waffles and Pancakes who are friends. They encounter a Guinea Pig Named Oscar who is not very nice and appears to be a bully. The story also involves the rude behavior of the owner of Oscar towards Waffles and Pancakes owners.  Poor Waffles and Pancakes are so upset that they make themselves ill. Just like many kids do when they encounter bullying. What I like about this book is they work to resolve the bullying by asking questions without bullying back. They discover their was a reason Oscar was unkind to them as do the owners of the pets with parent helping the boys become friends. I recommend this story for early readers.  It is presented well for ages 4  to 7. This book  is a good story and a good way to bring up the topic of bullying with young children.

Loss De Plott The Colour Red, by Stephan J. Meyers Magical Adventure!

Standard

Good Day Folks,https://twitter.com/StephanJMyers

 911KrIw-YaL._SL1500_As I read the book Loss De Plot The Colour Red, by Stephan J.  Myers, at my table. I found my imagination travel as I read this fable.  The book is a delight it is even better read out loud. The writing is rhythmic and musical to your ears, you may find yourself dancing and flying as the music fills your imagination it soars. Loss De Plot likes to draw and she draws a man with a hat the colour red. He arrives at the door with a book. The book is blank at first to Loss. He Gram tells her it is the book of dreams. That evening she has a dream and finds out about the man with the red hat.  “for when red you draw, in a book of dreams, a simple drawing is not what it seems.”  I think this fable kids would enjoy.  They would find the magic of dreams to place in their book of dreams. The illustrations are fun and thought provoking as well a good addition to the story. My children enjoy their binders full of imagination. I think this book would open your children’s imagination maybe some adults too.  It is reflective for adults of things that could have been or possible still, while for children it is of what could be.  I think I will read more adventures of Loss De Plot by Stephan J. Meyers. This wonderful tale is for sale.To purchase this book, just click on the cover and magically to amazon you will go.This tale is a must look.

A little about Stephan J. Myers from his amazon authors page: Permanently glued to a rather dilapidated chair with a much pandered pooch at his feet; Stephan J Myers was born in England and Loss De Plott is the first in his series books for grownups featuring the beguiling Loss De Plott.

Having escaped the drudgery of corporate life and become forever lost to imagination he writes for all ages. His illustrated children’s books include The Book Of Dreams series that begins with The Colour Red.

Enjoy the magic and adventure, WB Wendy Nystrom WendyBookcaseLogo (2)

The Legend of the Santa Owl, by Dvora Swickle Adventure

Standard

Good Day Folks!

First I would like to thank P, J. LaRue, author of The Mystic Princesses and the Whirlpool, Amazon link to Mystic Princesses and the Whirlpool, a wonderful book. She put this blog hop together. Check out her blog is http://words-with-women.com/.

The Legend of Santa Owl, by Dvora Swickle has to be one of my favorite Christmas reads this season.

santa owl

The book starts out with a wonderful poem. A squirrel named Norman with a handful of nuts is running to visit his friend Ollie Owl. He of course trips over something and it is a beautiful glittery ball.  Ollie has no idea what the glittery ball is so he fly’s to local farm to find out. Norman takes the ball home. Ollie looks in the window and sees a tree with no root all glittered and twinkling all around. The Mr. and Mrs. pulled out a box with glittery balls to place on the tree. He hears a poem about placing on tree and it will bring gifts on Christmas Eve.  Owl fly’s back to Norman’s house and informs him. Norman hangs the ball in his tree home and went to bed and dreams of goodies. Owl watches at window waiting for Santa. But Christmas is for humans no animals he learns. They laughed. Ollie left sad and a tear in his eye, then he heard a ho ho ho and a gift floats down, which he catches. Ollie took the gift to Norman’s house for him to open. After that night Christmas is for animals too.

A little about the Author Dvora Swickle.  From Website

Dvora Swickle (D. A. Johnson) lives in the quaint fishing village of Gig Harbor, Washington, where the grass is green, trees are tall, and animals roam free. Dvora has entertained children for over twenty years. She has written over forty stories, and is the author of two poetry collections, Dress Up (available in paperback) and an ebook, Kittywampus. Also available on Amazon, Lit’l Gobble, Fudnickle Brown, and The Worm Story.Dvora encourages young children to develop a life-long love for language and reading. She believes that poetry can play a big role in motivating children to read. “Poetry helps young readers understand language, words and feelings through rhythm and rhyme.
Children feel comfortable with poems because it’s like playtime with words.”  ~ Dvora Swickle

Dvora believes that experience is the gift of learning; all children should live bully free, and learn confidence in their own special ways. Her stories are a lovely reading experience with the gift of a life message inside for the children. As a children’s storyteller, Dvora enjoys reading to children, she puts fun voices to her characters, and invites the children to take part. Every time she reads Sweet Green Grass children are encouraged to raise their hands, ask questions, and become a part of the story.
Dvora drove school bus for ten years, and now works with special needs children. She is devoted to helping students ages 18 to 21 to transition from high school into the work community and independent living

 Good Day Folks,

 My first books is on sale for a few more days.  Your kids will love the adventure. Here is a review

This review is from: James Saves the Moon (Paperback)

Just read the coolest kids book….its called “James Saves The Moon” by Wendy Nystrom.

Wendy’s book starts in Iceland, and her son saw something-remarkable. But-at the same time, he wonders, could it really be? So what does he want to do-explore of course, after all, he is a little boy with a great imagination! James sets out on an adventure inspired by his mom and supported by his family. Along the way he makes a new best friend, and other friends. He finds out some fables of Iceland, and explores things around-but most of all, he experiences a journey of a lifetime with his new friends. Really, this book is one that will spark your child’s imagination, set them off in wonder, and give them something to aspire for! Wendy’s illustrations will give you the feel of another land, an adventure in itself-great job to her illustrator! Her writing makes each image pop together, and form almost a movie in your mind. Such a fun book to enjoy!

My 9 year old has become a “mega fan” and reads the book daily! It is one of his newest favorites! He talks about it, shows people the book, and explains it to his brothers–that is a book that has truly captured a child—phenomenal.

Enjoy and have a grand adventure today. WB

Wonderous Wednesday Children Adventures! Whiskers and Hair Balls by Maranda Russell

Standard

Good Day Folks,

Today adventure is early reader Whiskers and Hair Balls by Maranda Russell.

Whiskers and Hairballs by Maranda Russell

When my girls were in Kindergarten and 1st grade every book they checked out of the school library was like this one.
It is a fun little read for early readers. Young children love books about animals. Children and Parents will laugh while reading and looking at the funny poses. The pictures depict the daily life of a house cat. Plus to keep your child engaged in reading, their is a list of find this object in the pictures at the end of the book. Children love to find items on pictures.
I think early readers and parents will enjoy this book. I recommend the sweet, fun read.

A little about  Author Maranda Russell~

Maranda Russell (1982-?) was born in Muncie, Indiana, but now resides near Dayton, Ohio. She is a children’s author and book reviewer, a foster parent, a part-time substitute teacher and an enthusiastic lover of cereal and ice cream. She currently writes stories for children based on the experience she has gained as a teacher, foster parent and former child. Of course, the “former” part is questionable since this author still enjoys indulging her “inner child” on a regular basis.

To find out more about this author, her books and the daily challenges of being a writer and a foster parent, please visit her website, http://www.marandarussell.com.

Or visit her Amazon Authors site at Maranda Russell’s amazon authors site
