What a wonderfully written story with great illustrations. Meet Ambrose, the duck, who wants to fly south but can’t.

His friend Gustave, a rooster, along with Claire, a sheep and Joseph and Jacques, both humans, try to make Ambrose’s dream of flying south come true. Hope you like the ending as much as I did.

This is a story about talking squirrels, a girl named Bethany and about making new friends even when you think you may not make friends. I only wish there were more illustrations. I liked the book but felt there were so many areas where illustrations would have made the book come alive. This book is recommended for ages 4-8.

CHASING SUNSETS

Chasing Sunsets is a book about just that. Mom decides it would be a good idea to get all her kids together and go watch a sunset from the best location she can find. This is going to require a long drive in the car to get there. Now, I am lazy so I would have just told all the kids to look west. However, this mom is a better person than I am so the adventure begins. All the illustrations were colorful, and there were lots of animals, people, and a colorful sky. But let’s not forget the gorgeous sunset. I liked the book very much and it was nice to see someone give God the glory for all things in our world.

CECILIA’S TALE

Author: Debbie Manber Kupfer

Cecilia is about a cat who grew up in Jerusalem. The author made the cats and dogs with very human-like qualities. I just hope that in real life, mommy cats don’t treat their kittens like Cecilia’s mom treated her. Also, I don’t think all dogs are stupid as they were portrayed in this story. In fact, I always see cats running from dogs as fast as they can. Now, I know the author was telling the story of her real cat in a funny and cartoonish way, and I am sure you would enjoy this book. The story tells the journey of Cecilia leaving her mom (ok, not really leaving as much as being forced out) and finding her own human to take care of her. I think you should buy the book and discover for yourself how and if Cecilia finds a human of her own.

Yes, it’s another adventure for Gertrude and Toby, our friends from McFarland Farms. This Friday, the two decide to go fishing at the lake. Now you think that wouldn’t be a problem. Well, you guessed wrong.

It turns out fish are not the only things on the menu. You’ll meet 3 little pigs and a little boy who likes to cry wolf but to the little boy’s surprise, there really is a wolf. As always, the story and the illustrations are great. If you haven’t read any of the books in this series, stop what you’re doing and buy them all now! Parents and children will love them. I for one can’t wait for the next adventure.

What happens to the little duck when he gets forgotten?

What happens when the little duck meets real ducks?

How does the little duck get back home?

You’ll learn all this and more when you read You’re Not A Duck!

Little Mouse’s Sweet Treat

I really like the illustrations in this book. They are fun to look at and full of color. The story itself is fun, also, although Mouse seems a little picky. Just kidding! Mouse wants a sweet snack and who wouldn’t? Mouse decides to ask his friends if they have a sweet snack for him.

You’ll meet a Bear, a Bunny, and a Dog who is sad looking and Cat. OK, I thought a mouse and a cat together was a bad idea. However, all went well. You’ll also meet a Bird, a bluebird, and other great animals along the way.

Will little mouse ever find a snack he wants?

Will he finally find true happiness? OK, it does not go that far!

I recommend you buy the book to find the answers to all the questions.
