Help your child learn the alphabet at the same time he/she is learning about bugs like the jewel beetle, the katydid, and others. If you like bugs (I don’t), you’ll like this book.

Follow the journeys of a brand new quarter in this delightful book by Allon Merhan. Plenty of cute illustrations, too. I have to admit I started feeling sorry for the quarter a bit.

Have you ever suffered from low self-esteem? If so, this book is for you.
Written for children, it’s a good book for anyone who believes they are worthless. You can find many books that are about this topic but few that takes a complex subject and makes it easy to understand.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels they need to improve their self-worth.

Today I read Terry Treetop and the Christmas Star.

I have read and reviewed many books from this series. I have like them all including this one. This time, we find Terry getting ready for Christmas with his mom and dad. They discover that the Christmas tree still needs to be decorated. When he went outside to get a ladder, Terry discovers a frozen squirrel in a tree. Well, that’s when the rush begins to rescue the squirrel and still have time to finish the tree before the guest arrives. So, as I said, this was another great read for me and another great adventure for Terry Treetop. Read them all and you’ll be glad you did!

You don’t see many stories about sloths. Probably because, well they are sloths and sloths don’t do much. This, however, is a story about just that.

Stacey Lynn is a girl who is playing on the beach when low and behold, she sees a sloth swimming in the water. Well, that alone should grab your attention to make you want to read more. If not, did I mention there is a genie and some flying and also, wishes? How cool is that!

THE DAY THE SWING STOPPED

This story takes place in the not too distant future if we let it.
In this story kids and adults no longer talk to each other. Teachers don’t talk to their students, students don’t talk to their teachers, and parents don’t talk to their children. Why? Because everyone is to busy on their phones, tablets, PCs and game systems until one day the power in town goes out. (I suppose this town doesn’t have any battery back up).

What will everyone do? The teacher, Mr. Tweet, knows just what to do. It’s a nice story that tries to teach us to stop looking down and start looking around.
