My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Amos Faces His Bully is about a boy who is being bullied by bigger kids and his friend David often rescues him from the bullies. One day, David explains that just because the kids are bigger doesn’t mean that Amos has to cower to them. David says that he puts faith in God to protect him from his bigger brothers. When Amos hears that David was able to defeat Goliath he thinks that he should put his faith in God, also. When he does, he faces his bully and the bully backs down! Amos knows that he’ll probably be bullied again but now he knows that with his faith in God to protect him, he can handle it.

This is a great children’s story that encourages children to stand up to bullies but, more importantly, it teaches to put their faith in God by using a story from the Bible. It also has colorful pictures that will keep the attention of younger children. One of my favorite pictures is of David telling “the giant that he came in the name of the Lord of Hosts, the God of the armies of Israel:”

Excerpt 

Amos clutched his knees to his chest. Sitting in the dirt, he blinked to keep the tears from spilling down his cheeks.

Nathaniel and the other neighborhood boys marched around, taunting him.

“Are you going to cry now, baby?” Nathaniel balled his hands into fists and pretended to rub his eyes.

“I’m not crying,” ten-year-old Amos said with a sniffle. He stood and brushed the dirt off his clothes.

“I bet you’re the biggest cry baby in all of Bethlehem,” said Nathaniel.

The boys pushed him back and forth chanting, “Cry baby, cry baby.”

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Rosie and Friends: One-of-a-Kindness is another great Rosie the Pink Hippo book to help children understand that it’s okay to be different. 

Hornsby the rhino is just like other male rhinos, and he and his friend Bud are always pushing and shoving each other to show how tough they are. One day, Hornsby’s horn gets injured and suddenly all of the rhinos make fun of him and tell him that they don’t want to see him ever again. The poor rhino is alone and sad until Rosie and her friends show him that it’s okay to be different. He also learns that it’s easier to make friends if you’re kind.

Not only does Rosie and Friends: One-of-a-Kindness teach children about kindness and uniqueness but the illustrations are bright and colorful and will keep the interest of children.  It’s a fun book to read!

About the Author

Theresa McKeown spent over two decades in the entertainment arena before embracing her true passion of writing children’s books. After producing hundreds of hours of television for a host of cable and network outlets, Theresa is now on the path of what she considers her highest calling.

Theresa and her sisters have created “The ABC’s of Everything, LLC”, a family endeavor solely focused on publishing several series of children’s books, digital content, and educational curriculums.  All will be written and produced with an awareness of the true possibilities that children of the 21st century can realize. 

 As an author, Theresa is dedicated to estimating rather than underestimating the wisdom of children. Her philosophy is that kids are fully adept at understanding nuance and meaning and it’s not necessary to talk down to them.  She is dedicated to creating a new paradigm in the children’s book world by introducing work that fully embraces the insightfulness, perception and unlimited intellectual potential of today’s youth.

Her books are meant to plant the seeds of education and awareness early in a child’s development, knowing full well that children will ultimately blossom into the best versions of who they are meant to be.

In her role as producer, Theresa traveled worldwide, filming from locations as diverse as the White House, NORAD, the Pentagon, FBI headquarters, maximum-security prisons and from the top of the World Trade Center.  Along the way she “tail-hooked” onto an aircraft carrier in the Pacific, yachted through South America with jet setters and chased bad guys with the LAPD in a helicopter.  She survived both OJ Simpson trials, shot live from heart of the LA Riots and drove through a wall of flames during the Laguna fires.  Yet, with a background like this, building a community to celebrate children promises to be the most exciting adventure of all.

As George Elliot once said, “It’s never too late to become who you might have been”.

…Words this author has taken to heart.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

This is a great book for young children! It has colorful pictures of animals and the text is in verse that is fun to read. In fact, I read it aloud to myself. I have this one on my list of books to buy to read to my grandchild that’s on the way.

Not only is Duck, Duck, Moose fun to read but it teaches about having more than one friend. Duck’s best friend Goose has migrated for the winter so Duck tries to play with other animals but he’s still lonely. He finally figures out that he can play a different game with all of the other animals while he waits for Goose to come back.

  ´`★.¸¸,. •°´♡     Hosted by Words Turn Me On       ♡´*•,.¸¸,..★´`

         

 

A little about C. Kindler

 I have lived in Wisconsin for 23 years. I was born and raised in Arlington Hts., Illinois. I am a single mother of three children. I spent most of my life working and caring for my children. After, the youngest one graduated from school, I gave thought to writing a book. I was always told that I had a wild imagination, so, I decided to put it to good use. I absolutely love to read, and surround myself with books. I especially love to read adventure thrillers.

C. Kindler has authored three children’s books, The Adventures of Biker Frog and Lady White Bear: New Beginnings, The Adventures of Biker Frog and Lady White Bear: The Hermit and The Adventures of Biker Frog and Lady White Bear: Revenge of the Widow. Books 1 and 2 each won second place in the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards.

 Genre: Children’s

 

 

 

 

When Biker Frog rides up to the pond he calls home on his self-built solar-powered motorcycle, he has no idea that his life is about to change forever. After showing the motorcycle off to his friends at the pond, he takes off on a new journey. Shortly, into the journey, he sees a magnificent, black deer with glistening gold antlers and hooves blocking the road. He serves to miss the deer causing him to lose control and crash. When he wakes up, he finds himself in a magical land of different times. There he meets the brave Lady White Bear, who has mistaken him for a powerful warrior. His motorcycle is believed to be a magical beast created by a spell. Soon, Biker Frog will find himself in the adventures of a lifetime, along with Lady White Bear. There is magic, danger, and new adventures throughout the land, and the two will gather friends from all parts of the land.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Biker Frog finds himself in a magical land helping Lady White Bear, a princess whose father is being held by hedgehogs. With the help of Biker Frog and several friends, including a gnome and a groundhog, they rescue the king. The king and princess are so thankful that they offer to let Biker Frog stay in their magical kingdom. He wants to stay but what about his friends at the pond?

This is a cute chapter book for children. It shows that it doesn’t matter whether you’re a frog, a bear, or a gnome. Everyone can get along in peace, especially if they work together. 

The Adventures of Biker Frog and Lady White Bear: New Beginnings is a fun book to read. It does need a serious edit though.

Biker Frog is happy about his decision to stay at the castle. He and his solar-powered motorcycle, the Beast, are ready to help Lady White Bear in any way they can. As a royal knight, it is Biker Frog’s duty. As Lady White Bear’s friend, it is an honor to help.

Despite the peace in the land, Biker Frog and Lady White Bear stumble upon a big mystery when they find King Tae captured in a web in the Crooked Tree Forest. Samoen, a fifteen-foot-tall black widow spider, has imprisoned him. To stop Samoen’s rampage and save the kingdom, Biker Frog and Lady White Bear will have to find a sorceress and raise an army!

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Biker Frog is happy to be at the castle, especially since his friends decided to join him. One day when he and the princess decide to go for a ride, they find their friend King Tae caught in a web in the Crooked Tree Forest. They find out about a giant spider who has escaped from her prison. It’s another adventure for Biker Frog, the princess, and their friends! I like how The Adventures of Biker Frog and Lady White Bear: Revenge of the Widow introduces the Hermit who was mentioned in the first book and is the focus of the next book.

The Adventures of Biker Frog and Lady White Bear: Revenge of the Widow also needs to be edited.

x

x

 

Biker Frog is a long way from his old frog pond. In his previous adventures, he has traveled to the land of Notellis and met the brave Lady White Bear and her father, King Dannis. Biker Frog and Lady White Bear have saved Notellis twice from danger and disaster. Their latest adventure will take them out of Castle Bearmor and into the Witchlok Mountains.

Biker Frog, now Sir Biker Frog, thanks to King Dannis, has taken Lady White Bear and their friends Gomer and Henry to shop in a local village. It is there that they first hear the legend of a mysterious hermit. It immediately captures Lady White Bear’s imagination, and she insists that the group venture into the mountains to find the hermit’s cave.

Biker Frog realizes that Lady White Bear wants to trick King Dannis so he won’t worry about her. He reluctantly goes along with the plan, but both will find out that their quest is a lot more dangerous than they had imagined. Will the four friends get out of the mountains alive, or will the hermit prove to be too strong a foe?

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

This is the third book in the Biker Frog and Lady White Bear series and the best so far. The princess has a mind of her own and can be quite stubborn and persuasive. She has decided to find out who the Hermit is and she has a plan on how to find him.

The Adventures of Biker Frog and Lady White Bear: The Hermit is full of adventure and even has a couple of surprises. As with the other two books, it needs to be edited.

Book Review: The Adventures of Mitee Mite by David John

22 Jan

 

Title: THE ADVENTURES OF MITEE MITE SERIES
Author: David John
Publisher: Mitee Mite
Pages: 120 pages total in series
Genre: Children’s Picture Book

x

BOOK BLURB:

Building on a desire to teach children about time, shapes, measurements, and money, author David John created THE ADVENTURES OF MITEE MITE series. In the same way that many of us learned our ABCs, the book and app (available on Google Play and iTunes) collection helps young readers learn how many seconds are in a minute, the number of sides different shapes contain, and more, using a catchy tune that captures their attention and motivates learning.

Focusing on children from age 3 to 11 years old, THE ADVENTURES OF MITEE MITE book and app series offers its readers a dynamic female superhero, Mitee Mite, as their guide through the often tricky terrain involved with mastering time, shapes, measurements, and money. In her matching red cape and boots, Mitee Mite, accompanied by her alarm clock sidekick, Terry the Ticker, activates her superpowers by using her manners, respecting others, and accurately answering questions in the games she encounters during her adventures.

x

x

The five books in THE ADVENTURES OF MITEE MITE book and app series include The Time Frame Game and The Time Frame Game Advanced, which break down seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, and years to teach readers the fundamentals of time. The Measuring Game explores the components of feet, yards, and miles, as well as cups, pints, quarts, and gallons. Mitee Mite teaches kids about currency in The Money Game and dives into a colorful world of triangles, squares, hexagons, and more in The Shape Game. The companion song for this series (available at www.miteemite.com) helps kinds absorb the skills in an enjoyable and interactive way.

           

The idea for THE ADVENTURES OF MITEE MITE book and app series came about when David was faced with a dire challenge. “One day as I was babysitting my friends’ children, and not having any idea what to do, I made up fun games to help them learn,” David revealed. The goal of the series is to expose children to a variety of lessons in a manner that is fun, relatable, and memorable. David says, “Mitee Mite was created to help give children a head start on the basics of time, measurements, shapes, and money.”

David’s daughter, whom he calls his “Little Mite,” is the inspiration for the main character and the themes of the series. David’s desire to teach his daughter the basic skills featured in THE ADVENTURES OF MITEE MITE book and app series has expanded into the goal of sharing these lessons with other children through his “You Buy, They Read” program. “We plan to give away one book for every one bought to kids in need.” In addition, David will donate $1 for every $2 of the gross sales of apps to teachers “who are going into their own pockets to buy supplies.”

My Review

I chose to read these books after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Mitee Mite looks like a little super hero. Each of these small books focuses on something important for children to learn: time, measuring, shapes, and counting money. The first page has a question and four possible answers and Mitee Mite shows the answer on the next page. For example: How many seconds in a minute? 10 30 70 60. On the next page, Mitee Mite shows 60. 

The books are cute and colorful. I love these kind of children’s books that they will love and learn at the same time! I’m going give these books to my niece. She’ll love them!

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Mamá Graciela’s Secret is a wonderful story about Mamá Graciela’s love for animals. She has to make a decision about what to do when the health inspector says they’re going to have to shut down her restaurant because of all of her cats. I like how her husband says he will support whatever she decides. She comes up with a solution that works out for everyone.

The illustrations are beautiful with vibrant colors that will keep the attention of young children. The story teaches about love of both animals and people. It also teaches about making decisions that are creative. It’s a great book to read aloud!

Book Review: Monsters Love Worms by Darla J. Cullen

10 Nov

 

Morchella, a monster, wants her own pet Annelid, but her parents say no. When her mother is injured and Morchella chooses to care for her, she is rewarded with a surprise.

Available on Amazon.

 

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Monsters Love Worms is an adorable children’s book about Morchella. She’s a young monster who wants her own pet worm. Her parents don’t believe she’s responsible enough to have a pet because she gets sidetracked whenever she is supposed to be doing chores. When her mom is injured, she has to step up and take care of things for a while, which is appreciated by all. 

This book has colorful illustrations, many full-page, and it is easy to read for young children. It’s a cute story and it teaches about being responsible. I also liked Morchella’s appreciation of the nature around her.

 

About the Author

Darla J. Cullen imagines a world where all children learn how loved and cherished they are. Her life mission is to create enjoyable content for children that helps them feel the love of God. Fun and joy and love is what she is going for.
