I’m a Dragon by Sigal Adler Adventure

Standard

Good Day Folks,
This book was fun. Of course I am a little biased since I love dragons. Yes I agree dragons can do whatever they want.
I’m a Dragon by Sigal Adler . 5 gold stars   i'm  a dragon
The book is fun rhyming story with colorful fun illustrations by Abira Das. It is 12 pages long. I think parents will enjoy reading this rhythmic rhyming story that discusses a child pushing the limits. I also think young readers up to age 7 will enjoy the story. Children and parents can have fun acting out the scenes as they read.
Brief Synopsis
A young boy named Ron, announces he is a dragon for the day. This means can do anything he wants day or night. His dad has trouble with him throughout the day. Dragons only eat pizza, pasta and ice cream. He does not want to pick up his room, and does not have to ask permission to do anything. Bed time is the final straw, when the young dragon has finally pushed his tired dad and he loses his patience. His father turns into a dragon-dad with three heads. Ron thinks and decides he is not a dragon kid since is dad is a great big dragon and not much fun. It is time to end the game of being a dragon kid and start listening to dad, and go to bed and have a fun dream.

Dragon War1205_403812159706987_367318730_ns

This book is a winner.  Danny recently moved to a new town and school after losing his father in a traffic accident. He faces bullying at his new middle school and makes one friend at school Milly.  He begins to place his precious items in a bench window seat and discovers a secret chamber at the bottom. In the chamber is a book and a box. He begins to read the book that seems to come alive pictures dancing before his eyes and reads the surprising text that is written in normal handwriting. The book is about a girl before him who traveled to the land of Dorcian. It is filled with incredible plants and creatures. The best part, incredible dragons. He is interrupted with reading but wants to go to Dorcian.  You have to believe to be transported to this wondrous land. He does believe and is transported there only to discover it has changed and his help is needed after becoming friends with a Dragon. He goes back to his world and school. After hiding from a bully in a custodian closet he transports Millie and himself to the Dorcian.  Milly is captured and held captive in the dungeon at the dark fortress. They discover another child who wrote part of the book has been held captive for years and was missing from the new town Danny moved too. They must save them all and conquer the evil one who wants to make Dorcian all dark. This book if full of adventure, magic, real issues, friendships, foes, fear and finding ones strength to conquer all even when it seems hopeless. I think children would love this book of all ages. Great book for ages 9 to 13.

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

Hope you will take a look at her books and enjoyed the Adventure, WB, WendyBookcaseLogo (2)

An Hour with Eric Kimmel Adventure!

Standard

Good Day Folks !  WendyBookcaseLogo (2)

I was suppose to be hosting a blog radio show called Wendys Bookcase at http://authorsontheair.com/ …. https://www.facebook.com/AuthorsOnTheAir. This blog radio program has wonderful interviews check it out.

I have delayed my debut show until 2014 so stay tuned for more on this.

I had the honor and pleasure to read and talk with children’s author Eric A Kimmel. We had a blast talking about kid books, family memories,  publishers, and where the market is heading.

We both agreed kids love a fun, story.  He enjoys going to classrooms and reading to children. He has numerous books available.  We both decided that the electronic market is changing rapidly but kids books seem to sell more books in print. Whether electronic books will take over in the children’s market in unknown.  Most important thing was keep kids reading, dreaming and stir their imagination.

How I stumbled on Eric A Kimmel’s books was I was researching Hanukkah. The first book I read was

51V3BPTH1WL._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_  I fell in love with this book and read four more of his books.  Hershel saves Hanukkah by out smarting  goblins. His books are a really good read. I think any kid or adult would love his folk tales. The illustrations are wonderful in all his books.

I highly recommend his books. He has many books check out his website he even has a few that he reads to you. http://ericakimmel.com/ You and your kids will enjoy his website. His books are all available on Amazon too. Eric A Kimmel Amazon Link

My current favorite is 512R1Ic+OeL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-43,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_ Jack and the Giant Barbecue. Super cool new spin on Jack and the Bean Stalk.

Jack goes on a quest to retrieve his fathers stolen barbecue recipes. It is a fun exciting adventure.

Eric A. Kimmel is a native New Yorker who lives in Oregon. He was born in Brooklyn, NY where he learned to love books and traditional stories from an early age. He could hear five different languages without leaving his block. Eric taught teachers as a professor of Education at Indiana University at South Bend and Portland State University. His favorite classes were children’s literature, language arts, storytelling, and handwriting. He left the university in 1993 to become a full-time writer, a dream he had had since kindergarten.Eric’s books have won numerous awards. He and his wife Doris have traveled all over the world, sharing his books and stories with school children in China, Africa, and Turkey.
