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.

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.

A DOG’S TAIL

Author and illustrator: Kashvi Silswal

Some people spend their entire lives with the hope of someday writing a book and never seem to get around to it. Well, for Kashvi Silswal her time came at the age of ten.

A Dog’s Tail is both original and fun to read; that’s because it was so well written and so very funny. The entire book takes you through the life of Matchi. OK, not his entire life; more like a month or two. But you’ll get a pretty good understanding of how tough a dog’s life really is. It turns out Matchi is a pretty funny dog. I enjoyed learning how Matchi views the world and everyone he interacts with.

I hope Kashvi Silswal keeps writing because she has a lot of talent.

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.

I spent more time rewriting this review than any other review I have written to date.

Alabama Oh is about a little girl growing up in a town where everything is painted beige. I think it a metaphor.

Alabama is a black girl. I say this because her skin color plays an important part in the book. Throughout the book, Alabama seems to have trouble, mostly with white people because she is different. Her teacher is no exception. In fact, after the teacher meets Alabama’s parents, Alabama tells her parents “she doesn’t like things that are colorful and people who are different”.

I think the lesson of the book was meant to be that all people are different but I am unsure as it did not come across very well. I did like the illustrations.
