Book Review: Where Does Love Hide?


26459991

 

About the Book:  In Where Does Love Hide? children are reminded that they not only receive love but have the opportunity to share love. Looking under the fun, lift-a-flap feature, children will see examples of everyday love opportunities. Each page includes a memory verse and an example of a way to share God’s love. In life, children hear the words “I love you” repeatedly, often beginning before birth. However, because love is an abstract concept and young children are concrete thinkers, they must gradually learn to understand love by what they experience. In Where Does Love Hide? children are given the opportunity to see love in action and learn what love looks like. http://www.marymanzsimon.com/books.html

 

 

  • Age Range: 1 – 3 years
  • Grade Level: Preschool and up
  • Board book: 18 pages
  • Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.; Ltf Brdbk edition (January 1, 2017)
  • Cost: $6.99

 

My Review: This is another adorable book by Mary Manz Simon which takes a child on a journey of love with bible verses. It not only shows that we have for each other but the love God has for His children.

Where does love hide? is a fun book with lift-up-flaps that has the hidden answers under the flaps. Each flap reveals how a child can share their toys with their friends, being helpful and show kindness to others. Watch the excitement on a child face when you lift up the flaps to reveals what’s hidden.

A great message and lesson that parents can teach their children, to best understand love when they see it and learn to show it through everyday activities.

The illustrations by Hannah Wood are simple, bright and colorful because it helps tell the story. I highly recommend it.

So I’ll shop till I drop
For each just-right thing!”

My Review: Its the holiday season and Mr. Fish  is looking for the big, bright and perfect gifts that would bring delight to his friends. The gifts has to be meaningful and has a bit of bling-zing, but he is running out of time. He has gone from one store to another and they are all sold out. What is he going to do? Miss Shimmer come to the rescue and suggested home made gifts, the best gifts that comes from the heart.

I like that this story will inspire children to create gifts that comes from their heart that will be appreciated by their friends and family. The illustrations are colorful and bright bringing each page alive. I highly recommend the book for your home libraries.

Book Review/Giveaway: Battle of the Grandmas. Ends June 25th


16290191

Battle of the Grandmas by Anthonette Klinkerman, illustrated by Justin Acquavella

 

About the Book: One little girl, three grandmas! Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Well, three times the presents from Grandma, Granny, and NaNa (the real ones pictured at left) isn’t as wonderful as most grandkids would think in this humorous tale. Based on a true story, find out what happens when gift-giving becomes a battle!
My Review: When a little girl received three packages from her grandmas, it turns out they all sent her the same book. But they each wanted their gifts to be different and the best. So each grandma set out to out do each other by sending their grand daughter the best gifts they can find. Soon packages from each of them started to pile up in the girl’s house, from toys, music boxes, flowers to goodies and more. Even the postman was getting exhausted.

Finally, the little girl have had it, all she wanted was for her grandmas to spend time with her. Take her to the park, spend time with her reading a book or doing silly things to make her laugh and smile. All she wanted was hugs and kisses from those she loves.

I wish kids would think like this little girl. But society has changed all that because a lot of grandmas are guilty of trying to buy the love of their grandchild with gifts, and trying to out do the other grandma. I found this book very educational and that every grandma’s household should have a copy. The illustrations by Justin Acquavella an aspiring independent artist, graphic designer and illustrator help tell and bring the story to life. Pick up a copy today from Amazon.com

 

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: Anthonette Klinkerman is a public school English teacher and public speaker. She teaches English at a night high-school for at-risk teens, and conducts her award-winning mobile etiquette school, Courtesy Bootcamp, for businesses during the days. Battle of the Grandmas was written first, but actually is her second published book. Her first book is titled Courtesy Bootcamp: a not-so-gentle reminder to live by The Golden Rule. Married in 1999, Klinkerman was born in San Diego, California, and moved to Colorado in 2000. Her husband, also a teacher, was raised in Littleton, CO. Their one daughter is working on her art skills daily in preparation for mommy’s next book. The family does their best to keep up the visits with the relatives from in-town to those in California over breaks from school. When she is not speaking, writing, or grading papers, Klinkerman enjoys reading, golfing, hiking, and skiing, and exploring the restaurant scene to satisfy her inner “foodie”.

Giveaway for Mymcbooks Blog Mothers. Ends May 19th, 2012


Its Mymcbooks Blog Mothers Giveaway.

You have entered giveaways for your children, grandchildren to win books.

Now its your time to win some great books for yourself.

 

The First Law: A Novel by John Lescroart – New York Times Bestselling Author of The Oath.

Prodded by his father, Glitsky asks the new homicide lieutenant about the case, but the brass tells him in no uncertain terms to stay out of it. Guided by the Patrol Special — a private police force supervised by the SFPD that is a holdover from San Francisco’s vigilante past-the police have already targeted their prime suspect: John Holiday, proprietor of a run-down local bar, and a friend and client of Dismas Hardy…….

Wicked Prey by John Sandford – #1 New York Times Bestselling Author.

For twenty years, John Sandford’s novels have been beloved for their “ingenious plots, vivid characters, crisp dialogue and endless surprises” (The Washington Post), and nowhere are those more in evidence than in the sudden twists and shocks of Wicked Prey.

Out of Lucas Davenport’s past comes a psycho nursing a violent grudge. But why go after Davenport for revenge when Davenport’s young daughter is so close-and so vulnerable?

Hammerjack by Marc D. Giller

In this dark, futuristic thriller, Marc Giller defines the cutting edge of suspense with a relentless tale of murder, techno-terrorism, and a conspiracy one man is driven to uncover—even if he must undo reality in the process….

They ride virtual waves of code and pirate high-tech secrets to sell to the highest bidder—they are faster and smarter than your security system, and are only too happy to show you by how much. They are hammerjacks, and the rewards of their profession are second only to the sheer rush of what they do. Cray Alden was once one of them. Now he’s a corporate spook chasing down the information traffickers who’ve turned business into all-out war.

The Janson Directive: A Novel by Robert Ludlum #1 Bestselling Author.

“One of the world’s greatest men has been kidnapped.” “Nobel laureate, international financier, and philanthropist Peter Novak – a billionaire who has committed his life and fortune to fostering democracy around the world through his Liberty Foundation – has been captured by the forces led by the near-mythical terrorist known as the Caliph. Holding Novak in a near-impenetrable fortress, the Caliph has refused to negotiate for his release, planning instead to brutally execute him in a matter of days.” “Running out of time and hope, Novak’s people turn to a man with a long history of defeating impossible odds: Paul Janson.
