Book Review and Giveaway: Cougar Cub Tales. Ends August 21st
Cougar Cub Tales: Lost and Alone written and illustrated by Sharon Cramer
Lost and Alone, is about two sibling cougar cubs who live alone after losing their mother. The cubs are at odds one day, as siblings will be, and they decide to go their separate ways. The adventure becomes lonely and the cubs discover that the single most important thing is to find one another. Unusual circumstances come into play as the cubs are wonderfully reunited, never again to be separated. The story deals with the everyday childhood issues of friend or sibling rivalry and spats and conflict resolution. It communicates to a child in a wonderful, nonsensical rhyme, and the eighteen watercolors are an exquisite representation of this timeless story.
My Review: This book captures the unique relationship between siblings from playing hide and seeks to hunting lizards and rabbits. Then one day they were at odds with each other and decided to part ways. After time apart they realized that they miss one another and journey on to find each other. They found out that nothing is warmer than cub love.
Cougar Cub Tales: I’m Just Like You. Written and illustrated by Sharon Cramer
From the award winning series, Cougar Cub Tales: I’m Just Like You is the second book about the ongoing adventures of the cougar cub brother and sister. One day, they encounter a creature very unlike themselves. They have ungrounded apprehension about whether or not the blind bobcat is aREALcougar cub. By the end of the tale, they realize that they reallyAREthe same, overlooking their physical differences as they embrace their new friend. It is a timeless story that deals with the everyday issues of non-acceptance and intolerance, especially regarding physical difference and disability. It is written in a wonderful nonsensical rhyme, and the eighteen watercolors are an exquisite representation of this charming tale.
My Review: A story of noticing the difference in others and accepting that we are all the same.
Age: 4 -8
