My Review

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

What a cute story! Alycat’s brother Bugsy has a lucky ball for when he plays golf. On their way to a golf tournament, Alycat realizes that she brought the wrong ball for him, but she draws on it to make him think it’s his lucky ball. Bugsy plays well without the lucky ball and realizes after he finds out what Alycat did, that he doesn’t need one after all.

This adorable story with colorful pictures teaches that luck isn’t as important as practice and hard work. Also, at the end there is a page called, “Alycat’s ABCs of Golf.” It lists a word that is related to golf for every letter of the alphabet. Such a fun way for children to learn new words! And adults, too. There are a couple of words there that I didn’t know.

Alycat and the Tournament Tuesday is a good book to get for young children, and I have a feeling it’s one of those that they’ll want to read (or want you to read) over and over again.

Book Review: Owly Trilogy by Orla Kelly

These short animal action and adventure stories set in a magic forest capture the very essence of childhood. Set in the world of forest animals who start off as strangers and enemies but who learn: to recognize the value of each other, the collective power of teamwork, about caring for and looking after each other, about the magic healing power of nature, taking care of the environment, and making the world a better place. This is a forest story and is wonderful to read at nap time or bedtime or anytime for children of all ages. Because they capture children’s imagination they teach so much about imagination and play.

“As a mother, I strongly believe we need to nurture our children but yet equip them with life skills and social skills that will help develop them personally,” says Orla.

These books teach children life skills and are positive, uplifting and teach children through the story about bravery, overcoming challenges, looking out for each other, helping each other, appreciating all the good things in our lives, taking care of our environment, and making the world a better place to live.

Lovely books for bedtime stories for children ages 4-8.

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.

The stories of Owly and his friends have messages that are good for children to learn: being kind to others, helping others, being thankful for what we have, and trying to make the world a better place.

Unfortunately, I’m not sure what age these stories would appeal to. They’re too wordy for young children and they have no illustrations. Older children might find them too immature for their taste. The stories also are in need of editing.

I think with some editing and/or beta reading, these could be transformed into fun and informative books for youngsters.

Book Review: Five Minutes, Alfie by Lily Mae Walters

Alfie snuggles down in bed,
dreams still in his little head.

He dreams he’s a king going out for a ride.
“A dragon sleeps in front of the gate,” they cried.

How will they succeed in waking him up?
By helping each other and lots of luck.

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.

Five Minutes, Alfie is about Alfie whose mom has told him he has five minutes to get up. Like many of us, he falls back asleep and dreams…but what a dream! He’s a king and there’s a dragon asleep in front of the gate. How will they get out?

This book is cute and it kind of rhymes. The illustrations are bright and colorful and my favorite part of Five Minutes, Alfie. This would be a fun book to read to youngsters.

Did you know that wild cats can be found on every continent except Antarctica? That’s right―there’s a whole world of wild cats to discover in this standout among animal facts books for kids! The Big Book of Wild Cats is packed with life-like illustrations, colorful photos, and fascinating facts about wild cats.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from Callisto Publisher’s Club. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

The first thing The Big Book of Wild Cats does is list wild cats from the biggest to the smallest. In case you were wondering, tigers are the biggest and can grow up to 10 feet long and weigh between 220 and 660 pounds. For some reason, I always thought lions were bigger, but they’re not. The smallest are wildcats which grow from 16 inches to 36 inches long and weigh between 6 and 18 pounds.

Next it explains the fastest cats, the cheetah being the fastest of course. But it also lists the runners up.

Most of the book is divided into Big Cats and Small Cats and each section lists size, life span, food they eat, sounds they make, what they look like, where they live, their social structure including the raising of their young, hunting habits, skills, and more. Most of the cats have a section about their population because many are vulnerable and their population is threatened. Others are elusive and scientists aren’t sure how many there are.

At the end of the book are helpful maps and a glossary. It also explains about endangered cats and how you may be able to help.

I definitely recommend The Big Book of Wild Cats for all ages. It will give you hours of entertainment with interesting facts about wild cats of every kind.

Book Review: The Story of George Washington by Lisa Trusiani

  • Helpful definitions—Discover a glossary with easy-to-understand definitions for the more advanced words and ideas in this book about George Washington for kids.
  • A lasting legacy—This unique book about George Washington for kids explains how he changed the world for future generations and you.

My Review

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

Everyone knows who George Washington was, of course. This biography is for young readers though, and I was surprised how much I didn’t know about our first president. For example, his family grew tobacco but he changed the crop to wheat and also made whiskey and his family and slaves caught a lot of fish to eat and sell.

This is the second Biography Book for New Readers by Rockridge Press that I’ve read. They include extras that will encourage children to learn. Some of the words are bold which means they are in the glossary in the back. There are also maps, time lines, and graphics called “Myths vs. Facts.” Occasionally, there’s an arrow with “Jump in the Think Tank” suggestions, which encourage children to express how they might feel in the same situation. There’s a quiz at the end as well as additional Think Tank questions.

A good example of a myth is that George Washington cut down a cherry tree when he was young and confessed to it when he was asked. That was just a story made up after he died to show how honest he was.

It’s important to teach youngsters about historical figures like George Washington. This is definitely a book that should be in every child’s library.

My Review

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

Harriet Tubman was an amazing woman who should be an inspiration to us all. This biography is written for young readers, and it not only teaches about Harriet Tubman but about some of the history of our country.

There are some extras included in The Story of Harriet Tubman that will encourage children to learn. Some of the words are bold which means they are in the glossary in the back. There are also maps, time lines, and graphics called “Myths vs. Facts.” Occasionally, there’s an arrow with “Jump in the Think Tank” suggestions, which encourage children to express how they might feel in the same situation. There’s a quiz at the end as well as additional Think Tank questions.

It’s important to teach youngsters about Harriet Tubman and other historical figures like her. She proved that just one person can make a difference. This is definitely a book that should be in every child’s library.

Mr Stevenson handed Jack a mug of tea and the telegram. They all sat down while Jack opened the message.

***************************************************************************************

The current homeless crisis in the UK has become a major concern across a broad spectrum of society. In particular, homelessness is a tragedy for vulnerable young people, many of whom do not want a hand-out but rather an opportunity to lead a normal life. The issues raised in the book are supported by many real life experiences from young people in crisis. 

The book:
•    examines the current, false perception of youth homelessness;
•    provides a better understanding of the required support needs;
•    identifies deficiencies in the current provisions of housing and support;
•    explores ways in which housing and support can be improved;
•    considers the roles of the state, charity sector, private sector and the public;
•    examines how to create a caring home to effect a transition to an independent life;
•    considers the funding and resourcing to significantly reduce youth homelessness;
•    considers what individuals can do to assist in the process. 

The book examines initiatives that have proven to be successful in other countries and those that have succeeded in the UK. It moves past the current broad intentions of homeless reduction and considers the basis of a fully costed national plan that is monitored against performance, which if publicised should give rise to a greater trust in the process.

All royalties received from this book will be donated to youth homeless charities.

About the Author: 

Barry Stillerman was born in London in 1953. Over the past decade, he has been working with charities in the UK and overseas to reduce youth homelessness. He sees the opportunity for more people to assist in taking action that can permanently reduce youth homelessness and has written “Young, Homeless and Forgotten” with this in mind. In the past, Barry has written financial self-help books including The Stoy Hayward Guide to Personal Financial Planning, Inheritance Tax – A Practical Guide and The Daily Telegraph Pensions Guide

Extract from the Book: 

“It is estimated that there are thirteen times more hidden homeless people in London than those who are sleeping rough and that 225,000 young people have stayed in an unsafe place because they have nowhere safe to call home.  An added problem with this group is that some people may feel that if they have a roof over their head and there are support services available, they are a less urgent problem that other causes. 

The inability for homeless young people to move forward due to the chaotic situation that they find themselves in is not well understood.  Stories about how people lapse into homelessness (for example through drug and alcohol addiction) raise unproductive questions about whether this person (or any homeless person) is worthy of help from society.  While substance abuse is not uncommon, the main reason among youth homelessness is relationship breakdown.

There are various support needs required by homeless young people covering issues such as mental health, substance abuse, poverty and criminality – in some cases a resort to petty crime has been a reflection of the need for food or a room at a hostel to get off the streets rather than a disrespect for property.”

Travelling through the Welsh Marches of yesteryear and today

When Richard Dobson toured the border county of Herefordshire in 2005, following in the footsteps of Victorian artist Henry Thornhill Timmins, he recorded the experience in his subsequent book In My Own Time.

Join him in his latest tour as he describes, in their words, what earlier writers discovered as they travelled through the Welsh Marches, even before the word ‘tourism’ was first used.

About the Author:

Richard Dobson was born 1943 in West Didsbury, a district of Manchester, England.  He spent his early years exploring the English countryside and never regretted missing out on University.  Richard retired in November 2008 after running his own sales and marketing business for 30 years.

His first book ‘In My Own Time’ tells of a journey made on foot through the English midland county of Herefordshire and enjoyed every minute writing it.  His second book ‘Border Crossings – Then and Now in the Welsh Marches’ was even more enjoyable and increased his knowledge and gained him many friends.

Excerpt from the Book:

The custom of touring in England and Wales began in the sixteenth century and gained momentum when turmoil in Europe during the 18th century interrupted the traditions of the Grand Tours. Gentlemen of leisure took to travelling the highways and byways for weeks or even months to discover hitherto undiscovered home territory. Professional travel guides were made available at Post-houses but travellers were often dependent on local men, who might have been expected to recognize any diversions or danger points en route. The terrible conditions of the roads up to the nineteenth century were a constant theme of the writings of Sir Richard Colt Hoare and his erstwhile travelling companion Archdeacon William Coxe. Another, Arthur Young, was so appalled at the state of the roads in Wales during his tour in 1768, he wrote accusingly about turnpikes being of little use.

‘What am I to say of the roads in this country! From Chepstow to the half-way house between Newport and Cardiff, they continue mere rocky lanes, full of hugeous stones as big as one’s horse, and abominable holes. The first six miles from Newport were so detestable, and without either direction posts or milestones so that I could not persuade myself I was on the turnpike.’

“Border Crossings:  Then and Now in the Welsh Marches” is available in hardback from numerous retail sites including:

Excerpt from the Book:

“Alan was captivated by the carousel and stood watching it. Billy just sat down on the grass bored.

“I want an ice cream,” said Billy.

“Wait until Lynda has finished. I cannot get you an ice cream as she has the money.”

‘Do you want to go on the carousel, son?” A strange man with a squinty eye had bent down to talk to Alan.

“I can’t, I’ve got no money, and I have to watch my little brother.”

“No problem,” said Squinty. “The first ride is free and I’ll look after your little brother for you.”

‘Would you?” Alan’s reply excitedly.

“Of course I will, son.” Squinty lifted Alan onto the carousel, waited for it to start moving and, looking down at Billy said, “Do you want an ice cream, son?”

Young Billy enthusiastically nodded his head and held the man’s hand whilst they walked away to find the ice cream stall.

Lynda was on the waltzer, Alan was on the carousel.

Lynda, Alan, their mum and Dad never saw Billy again.”
