My Review: I am so happy to review these books. School is out and the summer holiday has begun. What best way to keep your children active this summer than the Summer Fit Workbooks. The Summer Fit workbooks range from P-K to 8th Grade Levels. The activities and exercises in Summer Fit will take just 60 minutes a day to complete. Each day offers a simple and fun routine that reinforces skills not only in reading, math, writing, language arts, but with physical fitness, nutrition, plus a weekly core value, and also basic history, science and geography as well.

I have never come across a workbook that incorporates reading, writing, math with fitness and nutrition. The daily fitness program consists of 2 Aerobic days, 2 Strength days and 1 Sport day.

Get tips from former Biggest Losers contestants like Jay Jacobs, Maric Crozier, Courtney Crozier and Jen Jacobs about liftstyles, weight issues and unhealthy habits.

Learn about the role models throughout history, from Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi, Harriet Tubman, Jackie Robinson, Christa McAuliffe, Wilma Rudolph and many more.

The books are appropriate for each grade level, focusing on basics that will keep students involved with different activities and keep them ahead when school starts.

If you are looking for something to keep your child active this summer, then SUMMER FIT would be something to consider.  Summer Fit is the exercise book for your child’s brain and body while they are away from school. The activities are interesting, fun and educational. Like the book says, “prepare children mentally, physically and socially for the grade ahead!”

Summer Fit is the most comprehensive summer workbook and as a former teacher I highly recommend them.

Book Review/Giveaway: I’m Twirrely! The Nut Family Series. Ends July 19th


I'm Twirrely

I’m Twirrely! The Nut Family Series by Brenda Lochinger, illustrated by Jeffrey Duckworth

About the Book: I’m Twirrely! is the second book in The Nut Family series. It’s about a sweet sassy little squirrel that just wants to dance and be with her friends and family. Twirrely takes you through her day and shows you why her name suits her so well. http://www.brendalochinger.com/

 

My Review: The author introduces us to another member of the Nut family, Twirrely. She loves to dance and twirl all season whether it’s cold or hot. She likes to be happy and she likes things to be done right. She loves attention and when she is bored she bothers her brothers. In class you will find her chatting with her friend Rosie or twirling instead of paying attention to Mr. Maple her class teacher. When her parents ask her to take a break she just stomps and get angry.

Looks like Twirrely finds it hard to be still. She is so busy hopping, spinning or twirling without much time for rest. But what I love about her is that she finds time to help her mother with her chores. This book is about ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and most parents with children who suffer from ADHD can relate. This book is a great book to share with children that have ADHD. It will help them understand their situation better.

The author is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book to organizations specializing in the treatment and counseling for AD/HD.

I highly recommend this book.

Book Review/Giveaway: Manner-Man by Sherrill S. Cannon. Ends July 14th


Manner Man

 

Manner-Man by Sherrill S. Cannon and illustrated by Kalpart

“I am strong, and my flash is bright, And I will defend you and make things all right.” These are the magic words to call upon Manner-Man – a superhero who can help control bullies and teach children ways to be considerate of others. Manner-Man arrives, shouting “To the Rescue,” helping children learn about sharing and warning about not ‘hitting with words.’ He teaches that if someone starts pushing, just shout out “not nice!” Meet the children who form the Manner-Man team and find out how to join! Manner-Man incorporates messages and characters found within some of Cannon’s earlier books – helping children learn how to cope with bullies and look within themselves for their inner superhero! This is the fifth rhyming children’s book by this award-winning author whose other bestselling books include Gimme-Jimmy, The Magic Word, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys and Santa’s Birthday Gift. http://sbpra.com/sherrillscannon/

 

My Review: Manner- Man is a story written by Sherrill S. Cannon about a young boy who was bullied by a kid who took his toy car. His mother gave him some advice on how to handle bullies and the need to stand for what is right. He promised himself that he will stand for what is right and help those in need. So while he lay sleeping his inner mind kept repeating, “Call upon Manner-Man; he’ll save the day and help all good children to share when they play. This hero’s within you; when you raise your hand, your fingertips’ flash will help them understand…”

So he when he saw children fighting, he knew to call on Manner-Man who stops all fighting and arguing and teaches them that instead of fighting they should use their words. For example, if someone pushes you, don’t push back. Just say, it’s not nice to push.

This is a book that teaches children the importance of being polite and learning how to treat each others with kindness. This also delivers an important message about bullying. A highly recommend book.

Book Review/Giveaway: My Fingerpaint Masterpiece. Ends July 7th


My Fingerpaint Masterpiece

My Fingerpaint Masterpiece by Sherrill S. Cannon, illustration by Kalpart

Have you ever seen a “work of art” worth millions, which looks like something your child just brought home from school? The dual perspective of “Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder” and just a little bit of “The Emperor’s New Clothes” is evident in this clever artwork story of a child who paints a fingerpaint print in class and then loses it in the wind on the way home. Illustrated from the point of view of a child, whose identity is left to the imagination of the reader since all of the illustrations are what the child sees, the fingerpaint print is interpreted by official “judges” as well as by bystanders. Should people be influenced by what others see, or use their own self-esteem to make their own judgments? http://sbpra.com/sherrillscannon/

 

My Review: To quote the author “Have you ever seen a “work of art” worth millions, which looks like something your child just brought home from school?” Yes, we have, and we wonder why it’s displayed in the gallery or worth millions. As a former art teacher, every art work is worth something and there is always a message behind it.

During Ms Gallagher art class she wanted the children to use their fingers to paint what they see in their mind. A child decided to use the color green for the scene and the color red in the middle of the painting to represent a dog. But wasn’t sure how best to draw a dog.

Then the bell rang and it was time to go home but the picture isn’t complete as it did not have a signature on it. On the way home the wind blew the fingerpaint picture away which landed among an artist artwork which is set for display at the mall later that week.

The child was already running later and believes no one will think the picture was done by an artist.

  • So what happened when the child spotted the fingerprint painting at the wall?
  • Will the judges believe it was done by a child?
  • And will the picture win first place?

The important message in this book is that; always remember to put your name on your work. You never know when your work will be put on display and win a blue ribbon.

Don’t forget to take part in the fun activity after the story ends.

  • Find the other book covers in the story.
  • Recognize any of the children from the other books in the story.
  • Can you find the red dog, giraffe, bird, flower, frog and sun in the Masterpiece? Etc.

The illustrations by Kalpart are colorful, bold and beautiful which helps bring the story to life. I like that the characters from the author’s previous books was added to the storyline. I highly recommend this book for classroom reading.

Classics Book Giveaway: Ends June 25th, 2014


Katies Sunday Aftermoon

Katie’s Sunday Afternoon by James Mayhew

Exploring art is fun in Mayhew’s fourth book about a little girl who jumps into paintings. Children will come away with a deeper appreciation for fine art, as they join in Katie’s museum romp. It’s a Sunday afternoon, and Katie is bored. But Grandma knows just what will cheer her up — a visit to the art museum. There, Katie once again finds herself on an unbelievable adventure through the paintings of renowned post-impressionist painters Georges-Pierre Seurat, Camille Pissarro, and Paul Signac. Children will enjoy learning about art, as they join in on Katie’s exciting journey.

Thumbelina

Thumbelina by Susan Jeffers

Join tiny Thumbelina on her magical journey from lost child to beloved bride in this glorious large-format picture book. Born in a flower, Thumbelina braves the enormous, dangerous world until, through her kindness and courage, she is delivered to a kingdom of people just her size. When Susan Jeffers’s original version was first published in 1979, School Library Journal called it in a starred review “a remarkable, lovely version of one of the author’s most beloved tales.” New jacket art, recolored and newly rendered interior art, and gold foil borders all add to the value and elegance of this reissue.

Kidnapped

Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson

David Balfour has never had an adventure. He has never spent a night camping in the Scottish Highlands. He has never sailed the high seas. He has never fought in a battle. In fact David Balfour has never even left home. All he knows is a quiet country life.  All this changes after the death of his parents. He suddenly learns that he, David Balfour, is a man of wealth and standing, and that he is not destined for a simple life after all. All he needs to do to assume this new station in life is to travel to the town of Cramond, Scotland, to collect his inheritance from his father’s younger brother, an uncle he had not even known existed. But David soon discovers that this is not as simple as it sounds, as he struggles to survive and outwit his treacherous uncle in this classic adventure story.

the-ugly-duckling

The Ugly Duckling retold by Stephen Mitchell

Once upon a time, there was a maligned misfit who grew into the most glorious creature of them all. Never has such a fairy tale transformation touched more hearts than the one in “The Ugly Duckling,” one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most familiar and cherished stories. Now, in the hands of esteemed translator Stephen Mitchell, an iconographic fable regains all the humor and pathos of its very first telling. And with their vivid, arresting collage illustrations, Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher bring an oft-told tale to soaring new life.

Treasure Island

Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

The most popular pirate story ever written in English, featuring one of literature’s most beloved “bad guys,” Treasure Island has been happily devoured by several generations of boys—and girls—and grownups. Its unforgettable characters include: young Jim Hawkins, who finds himself owner of a map to Treasure Island, where the fabled pirate booty is buried; honest Captain Smollett, heroic Dr. Livesey, and the good-hearted but obtuse Squire Trelawney, who help Jim on his quest for the treasure; the frightening Blind Pew, double-dealing Israel Hands, and seemingly mad Ben Gunn, buccaneers of varying shades of menace; and, of course, garrulous, affable, ambiguous Long John Silver, who is one moment a friendly, laughing, one-legged sea-cook . . .and the next a dangerous pirate leader!

time machine

The Time Machine by H.G. Wells

What is the world like far in the future? Is there peace? Is there horror? – The Time Traveler’s dinner guests listen in silence to his unbelievable tale. Has he truly traveled through Time on a machine? Is the future a dream, where the gently Eloi play all day? or a nightmare, haunted by something that lurks underground? – Perhaps only Time will tell.

Book Review/Giveaway: Gigi and her Girl. Ends June 13th.


Gigi and her Girl

Gigi and her Girl written and illustrated by Kathy Brandt

 

About the Book: A wildly popular picture book with fun illustrations and rhyming text. Easy for new readers! Told from both the child’s and the dog’s point of view, children laugh out loud at the contrast. When the patient puppy prefers to sleep with the more respectful, less smothering bigger sister, the spicy little sister needs to change her ways . . . maybe. Sweet, whimsical, and very funny! GIGI AND HER GIRL is a favorite of children and parents alike. http://www.gigiandhergirl.com/index.html

 

My Review: This book is so true and very, very funny but with a message for dog owners. I love it. The story is about a young girl and her dog Gigi. Each has a different point of view regards to fun. The little girl thinks Gigi likes to watch her tumble and twirl but Gigi wishes she was outside chasing squirrel.

 

Girl: We glide down the slide and then ride the swing!

Gigi the Dog: Really? The swing? It’s just not my thing.

Reviewer: LOL!

 

So why the girl thinks her dog loves to play dress up, ride in a basket with her toys, try to get her to play the piano and more, the dog just doesn’t see it her way. She will like to play outside, sleep and eat. It was time for Gigi to make her escape for the day, so she walked off to be with the girl’s big sister who lets her be a dog. Will the little girl be able to learn her lesson and treat Gigi the way she should be treated?

This is a great message for young children. It will help them to understand how to treat their pets from their (animal) point of view. I highly recommend this book.

Book Review/Giveaway: Don’t Stick Sticks Up Your Nose! Don’t Stuff Stuff In Your Ears! Ends May 21st


Dont Stick Sticks

Don’t Stick Sticks Up Your Nose! Don’t Stuff Stuff In Your Ears! Written by Jerald S. Altman, MD and Richard Jacobson.

 

About the Book: Stuff in their Ears? Sticks up their nose? Let’s keep things out of our kid’s ears and nose! Rhyming and beautiful, bright and colorful illustrations will gently remind children to avoid putting things where they don’t go! After 14 years of practice, Dr. Altman never ceases to be amazed at what children will think of to stick up their noses or stuff in their ears. From rocks to raisins, paper to peanuts, crayons to candy and buttons to beads, Dr. Altman has removed them all! Sometimes adults marvel at the wonderful curiosity of young children…until their inquisitive natures cause them to insert unimaginable objects into inappropriate places. It’s difficult to appreciate a child’s creativity when it might cause a medical emergency. Don’t Stick Sticks Up Your Nose! Don’t Stuff Stuff In Your Ears! explains to children, in a fun, colorful, and memorable way, why it’s a good idea to avoid such behavior. The kids will soon be repeating the rhyming verses while being gently reminded not to stick things up their noses and not to stuff things in their ears.

 

Pages: 22

 

 

My Review: Every household and nursery schools with a toddle should have a copy of “Don’t Stick Sticks Up Your Nose! Don’t Stuff Stuff In Your Ears!” This will help educate them before they start to experiment with a bean up their nose or trying to fit something into their ears.

The story told in rhyme is about keeping things like plants, food, small toys, rocks, pencils etc out of their ears and noses. Stuff like these can be very harmful to a child. Children must be taught that their ears are meant for listening/hearing and nose for smelling. The illustrations are funny, bold and colorful. I high recommend this book for classroom teaching.

 

FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

 

About the Author: Jerald Altman is an Otolaryngologist-Head and Neck Surgeon (ENT Doctor). After publishing many peer-reviewed journal articles, he recognized the need for a children’s book dealing with a common problem in his practice. He was recognized as a Phoenix Top Doc in 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013.

He is a general Otolaryngologist and he loves taking care of children’s ear, nose and throat issues. Accordingly, the idea for this book came from his pediatric patients and their incessant need to put things where they shouldn’t go!

Richard Jacobson studied architecture at Yale University and has spent most of his adult life designing interiors, landscapes, tablescapes, clothing… and just about anything else that can be fashioned in a creative way. He lives in Phoenix and enjoys training dogs, birds and topiaries in his spare time.
