Book Review: Brooklyn Astronaut by Jermain Smith

1 Jul

Brooklyn Astronaut is about a eight year old African American boy named Jamuel, who wants to travel to outer space when he grows up. Jamuel raised in a two parent home goes with his mother, Rebecca, to meet his father, Eddy, at the Brooklyn Science Museum on a summer afternoon. On there way to the Science Museum, Rebecca stops by all of Jamuel’s friends houses so they can also join in the fun. On everyone’s arrival to the science museum, Eddy has one of his coworkers show Jamuel and his friends a tour of the museum. This is where Jamuel learns what it takes to become an astronaut. Jamuel parents are very proud that their child is not only fun with friends, but also has taken an interest in being the world’s next future scientist.

My Review

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

Brooklyn Astronaut is a difficult book to review. It has good ideas: it reinforces the idea that friends can be any color and from any background, it teaches a little about space and the moon, and it encourages children to want to go to a museum. I also think the dream at the beginning of the book was fun and cute and kids of any age would enjoy it.

Unfortunately, Brooklyn Astronaut should focus more on one age group. It’s listed for the ages 8-12 but the length of the book and font size are more appropriate for younger children. The pictures are colorful and different (I like different) and are more for younger children as well, but there aren’t pictures on some pages so younger children could easily lose interest. There are too many long sentences for younger readers too, so I’m at a loss as far as a good age for Brooklyn Astronaut

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.

The Angry Dragon is about George and his friend Joe. Joe gets upset easily when George tries to tell him the right thing to do or if something doesn’t go his way. Through patience and kindness, George teaches Joe that being angry doesn’t help the situation.

The illustrations in The Angry Dragon are cute and colorful and will keep the attention of young children. The text is in rhymes and teaches youngsters that being angry isn’t the best way to deal with things. There are even a couple of pages at the end for children to color. This is definitely a book that young children and their caregivers will enjoy!

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.

Poor Tansy can’t sleep. She asks her mom and then her sister how to fall asleep because she’s forgotten how. The barn owl finally tells her to count sheep but that surely doesn’t help! In fact, it causes a ruckus!

Go To Sleep! is an adorable book for children with colorful pictures. It also encourages children to use their imaginations because Tansy is good at using her imagination. It’s definitely one I’m planning on reading to my granddaughter.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. I had read Batch and Lucy Fetch Jealousy and looked forward to reading another cute Bash and Lucy book.

Bash is on a soccer team and his dog, Lucy, was their dog coach. Lucy encourages the children, makes them laugh, and likes to give them kisses. Unfortunately, Bash’s Grandma Vera and his cousin Paula are on a different team and they want Lucy as their coach. They claim that because of Title XI, they deserve to have Lucy. “Title IX is a law that requires that men and
women have equal opportunities in sports, including equal access to the best coaches…” Personally, I agree with Title XI but I didn’t think the boys should have to give up Lucy! And Bash felt the same way as I did.

Bash takes matters into his own hands and tries to find a way to make everyone happy. Does he succeed? Can he keep both his dog and his favorite cousin?

Bash and Lucy Fetch Team Vera and the Dream Beasts is a fun and cute story for children of all ages. What’s great about it is that it’s not only a good story with great illustrations, but it teaches several things throughout the story without children even realizing that they’re learning. Some examples of what is learned (I’m sure there’s much more):

  • Bash is sensory-sensitive and readers learn what it means to be sensory-sensitive and how to avoid being on “overload” (my word). Bash also has an active imagination that helps him to understand what is going on around him 
  • Paula is all about girl-power and we learn about Title XI from her and the rest of Grandma Vera’s team
  • the library is a good resource for information
  • dogs are great companions for everyone
  • compromise is better than arguing and fighting

I definitely recommend the Bash and Lucy books and look forward to reading more of them in the future.

Book Review: Sarah’s Shadow by Nick Jones

22 May

 

If you could change something about yourself, would you do it? When Sarah Simpkins is teased about her shadow in the school playground, she finds herself wishing she didn’t have one. That night she has the chance to make the wish come true. But will losing her shadow really make her happy?

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.

Sarah’s Shadow is a colorful children’s book about Sarah Simpkins. She made a wish that her shadow would go away because some of the kids on the playground teased her about it. And it worked! Her shadow waved goodbye and left. Will this make her happy? Will the kids stop teasing her now?

Sarah learns the hard way that we need to think before we make a decision based on feelings. Being teased or bullied is a terrible feeling and poor Sarah just didn’t want anyone to make fun of her anymore. Getting rid of her shadow, though, probably wasn’t the best choice.

I definitely recommend Sarah’s Shadow as reading for children. It teaches children to use their imagination, it’s fun to read, and it has great illustrations.

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.

What a great children’s book! When Hope, Jun, Lea and Parth go on an adventure to find magic hats for Mr. Globe’s headache, they go to many historic places in London. At each stop there’s a picture of the place they’re at and the name of the place is in bold letters. And every time they find a hat, there’s a picture of the hat on one of their heads and the name of the hat is in bold.

The children look like cute dolls and the pictures of the places they go are real photographs. Not only is this an interesting and fun book for children, but there’s so much for them to learn! They learn about the diverse cultures in London as well as acceptance of other cultures. There’s also, of course, the lesson about the iconic places found in London and the different kinds of hats. As an adult, I learned some things about London that I didn’t know (I’ve never been). One of my favorite things is the map at the beginning and end of the book.

I definitely recommend London Hat Hunting Mission for children of all ages.

Poor Mr. Snuffles is having a bad birthday. As he’s walking through the woods trying to find a truffle thief, he passes all of his good friends who are going to a surprise birthday party. Of course, it’s his but he doesn’t realize that and is upset that he wasn’t invited, especially since it’s his birthday too!

Mr. Snuffles’ Birthday is a cute book with a lot of colorful illustrations and rhyming verse that young children are bound to enjoy. As an adult, I enjoyed it and look forward to reading it to my granddaughter.

About the Author

Born in Yorkshire in 1985, David Greaves’ warmth and generosity of spirit, and his love of travel and adventure led him to make friends around the world with people from all walks of life. His strength of character and devotion to achieving his goals was shown in his achievements as an ultra-marathon runner and Iron Man triathlete. It was also shown by his determination to finish this book, and nine others, after being diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (ALS) in June 2015, just after his thirtieth birthday. In the fifteen months after his diagnosis he got married to the love of his life, climbed Mt Kilimanjaro, raising over £12,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, and travelled through East Africa before settling in Newcastle upon Tyne. As David lost the use of his arms and speech he finished his collection of children’s books using revolutionary Eye Gaze technology which allowed him to type by tracking the movement of his eyes. David passed away peacefully at home in September 2016. Mr Snuffles is David’s first book and his wife Philippa and family intend to honour his memory by eventually publishing all of his completed works.

Book Review: Amos Faces His Bully by Cheryl Malandrinos

Title: AMOS FACES HIS BULLY
Author: Cheryl C. Malandrinos
Publisher: Guardian Angel Publishing
Pages: 20
Genre: Christian children’s picture book

 

BOOK BLURB:

Amos is targeted by the town bully because he is so small. When word reaches Amos of his friend David’s battle with Goliath, he thinks back to what David told him about putting his faith in God’s protection. Perhaps the same God can help Amos face his bully too.

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.
