Book Review: Cluck the Undercover Chicken

IMG_0438-1.JPG

Feathers and chicken feet man! This story by G. Eric Francis was a really fun read. It was well written with lots of humor throughout. I enjoyed the impromptu conversations between Cluck and the storyteller. It reminded me of the old Abbott & Costello routines. However, it could be a little confusing for some readers. I gave it 5 stars for originality and because I really enjoyed reading the story. I’m looking forward to the next one by this author!

Book Review: Roly-Poly Monster

If you’re like me, you’re constantly on the lookout for new material to share with your little ones. I picked this up on Amazon and I’m really glad I did! The story is fun to read and talk about and the illustrations are fun too. You can trace Roly-Poly Monster’s trail with your finger on the page or your kids may just want to roll along with him on his adventures. Its entirely up to you! A great book for your little people!

Book Review: Neptune’s Trident

 

I recently had the pleasure of reading Neptune’s Trident, one of a series of stand alone books that follow the adventures of Astro and his super secret organization of dogs. I have to say the author has put together a team of hilariously funny and likeable characters in this tale of adventure and intrigue.

I really enjoyed following along on this mission on the high seas… and below the seas too!

If you’re an animal lover like me and enjoy adventure, you’ll love this book by Susan Day! You’ll also appreciate the fact that her website states the book is part of the “Giving Back” program, which says that profit from the proceeds of sales goes to the Australian Animal Protection Society!

So in that way, Astro and the gang really are helping to keep all animals safe! That’s a really cool thing!

Book Review: Out of Sight Makes It Right?

Every parent at some time or another has to deal with the issue of a child lying to them. Out of Sight Makes It Right? ,by Chris Bauer deals with this issue in a very thoughtful, kid friendly way. The illustrations and the way the rhyming text and dialog are presented reminded me of reading a comic strip, which I thought worked really well. But, that’s not the best part. The best thing about this story in my opinion is that it allows the parent or caregiver to confront the problem of lying effectively in a very non-confrontational way.
