About the Book: Freedom – that is what Lilly Linton wants most in life. Not marriage, not a brood of squalling brats, and certainly not love, thank you very much!


But freedom is a rare commodity in 19th-century London, where girls are expected to spend their lives sitting at home, fully occupied with looking pretty. Lilly is at her wits’ end – until a chance encounter with a dark, dangerous and powerful stranger changes her life forever…

Enter the world of Mr Rikkard Ambrose, where the only rule is: Knowledge is power is time is money

Robert Thier is a German Historian and writer of Historical Fiction. His particular mix of history, romance and adventure, always with a good deal of humor thrown in, has gained him a diverse readership ranging from teenagers to retired grandmothers. For the way he manages to make history come alive, as if he himself had lived as a medieval knight, his fans all over the world have given him the nickname “Sir Rob”.

For him, Robert says, becoming a writer has followed naturally from his interest in history. “In Germany,” he says, “we use the same word for story and history. And I’ve always loved the one as much as the other. Becoming a storyteller, a writer, is what I’ve always wanted.”

Book Review/Giveaway: Ellie’s Best Beach Vacation Ever and Ellie Goes Back to School. Ends March 31


28637492

 

About the Book: Ellie the elephant and Pudgy the penguin are stuffed animals…and the best of friends. They have been on many adventures together, like moving to a new neighborhood, flying on an airplane, visiting animal friends and relatives at a zoo, going back to school together to meet new teachers and learn—and now they get to enjoy a summer adventure on a wonderful beach vacation!

The excitement mounts as Ellie and Pudgy pack their beach balls and sunglasses and jump in the car for the game-filled drive to the coast.

Once they arrive, Ellie and Pudgy head straight for the beach to dig in the warm sand, swim in the sparkly blue ocean, and see lots of colorful fish. Then they head out for an afternoon packed full of fun!

Join in the adventure as these best friends share many new experiences while on their special beach vacation—traveling to a new place, trying new activities, riding bikes, enjoying a froggie lunch and sweet treats, swimming, building the biggest sandcastle ever, visiting an un-butterfly garden and much more as they spend a sunny day outside and explore this special beach town! http://www.marcifair.com/#!her-book/c1nwt

 

Publisher: Pacochel Press
Publish date: January 2016
Page count: 35
Price: $8.99

 

My Review:  It was interesting to see that toys are used to tell this story with real photographs of places visited by Ellie and Pudgy.

Follow Ellie and Pudgy as they take a trip to the beach, bookstore and the playground. They could not believe how white the sand was and how beautiful the water was with the color blue and green. They love to build things with sand like sand castle, but each on its own love different things. While Ellie loves to swim Pudgy loves to snorkel in the ocean as it was fun seeing the fishes.

Children loves stuffed animals and to see them play a part in this story will be an interesting read for them.

Book Review/Giveaway: When I Grow Up I Want To Be A Good Person! Ends March 5th


When I grow up

Book Review: Blake and Brendan would do almost anything to get out of going to Mr. Becket’s funeral. It will be boring and sad-and dead people are scary! There might even be ghosts! But Mom and Dad insist. Mr. Becket was a good person, and it is right to gather with his family and friends to remember him and all the good things he did. So what’s so good about remembering a dead person? A lot. Readers learn with Blake and Brendan what it means to be a good person and all the ways a good person makes a difference in people’s lives, even long after they’re gone.   http://whenigrowupbooks.com/

 

  • Series: When I Grow Up…
  • Paperback: 50 pages
  • Cost: $10.95

 

My Review: After their mom insisted that they go with them to attend Mr. Becket’s funeral, Blake and Brendan found out how important Mr. Becket was to the people and the community.

They learnt how Mr. Becket cared for those who could not stand up for themselves. That he mentor young men, coach different sports, he taught kids how to deal with winning and losing and how to do both gracefully. The boys also learnt that Mr. Becket not only helped people but animals too. They notice that Mr. Becket was liked a lot. They wonder if they can be as good a person as Mr. Becket when they grow up.

This is an inspirational book for children to learn how to be responsible in learning how to help others. The illustrations are bright and bold which helps tell the story.

At the end of the story is a short story about The Elephant and the Blind Man.

Book Review/Giveaway: Not A Nugget. Ends Nov 28


27202135
About the Book: Food or friend? Through fun animal facts and charming illustrations, “Not A Nugget” shows children a different way to view animals and their food. With a special foreword by Gene Baur, founder of Farm Sanctuary, this book is an educational resource for parents and teachers to introduce children to plant-based living. http://veegmama.com/not-a-nugget/

  • Paperback: 38 pages
  • Publisher: VeegMama (August 10, 2015)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0986106011
  • ISBN-13: 978-0986106019
  • Product Dimensions: 8.5 x 0.1 x 8.5 inches
  • Cost: $9.95 on amazon

 

 

My Review: The author has explained in her book that animals are our friends, not food. She goes on to show with the illustrations by Jack Veda showing how chickens like to play games, cows making best friends by walking together, that pigs are super smart by playing video games with a joystick, fish communicating like friends and have memories like humans and many more. She gave fun facts and listed the alternatives like instead of eating hot dog, eat a veggie wrap, instead of bacon, eat tempeh bacon, instead of sushi roll, eat cucumber and avocado roll.

I understand the vegetarian lifestyle that the author wants to convey to the parents and children, but I can not truly agree that animal are not food.
