Our Moon Festival is a beautiful, bright, lovely children’s book that highlights the Moon Festival that is celebrated by many Japanese, Vietnamese, and Chinese communities. The illustrations are vivid, grabbing the reader’s attention at each page turn. The descriptions of the festival really create the atmosphere of the celebrations!
My children both enjoyed reading this book. They loved learning about a festival they didn’t know anything about. They both loved the illustrations, and wanted to absorb every inch of the page before I could move on!
Well this was just an absolutely wonderful book! We get introduced to Punk, an adorable English Bulldog. He tells us his story, which is filled with heartwarming moments, some sad spots, an adorable pup, and caring people!
Punk starts life with a family that loves and cares for him, but something changes, and he’s soon forgotten. He is not treated well or cared for, and is rescued by someone. We follow Punk’s story as he is taken in by someone who cares for mistreated animals. Punk learns to trust again and is able to heal while in the care of these wonderful people.
What a wonderful children’s story! My kids were completely invested in this as I read. They were shocked at some characters’ actions and impressed with others!
When a new family moves into a town that follows the same rigorous rules day after day, they shake things up in a way that will teach everyone a few lessons. When the family paints their white fence red, the whole town is in an uproar, but really why? This family doesn’t give up as they enjoy their colorful, red fence!
This is such an interesting, and new view of the birth of Jesus story! My kids and I absolutely loved it, and it’s going to be a part of our annual Christmas book traditions now!
Amal is the a camel without a big hump. All the camels talk and make fun because he won’t ever be able to go on the long trips that the camels go on. He doesn’t have a hump large enough to hold all the water they need! When Amal is called to duty to be part of a caravan with three men baring gifts for a new baby, he and the other camels learn a valuable lesson about how the camel body really works as well as how important a small camel can be!
I read this book with both kiddos and it was a HIT! The artwork brings these characters to life, and the story really draws the reader into the life and situation for these food friends. This seems like the kind of story that could turn into a series. There are a lot of very unique characters in this refrigerator, and we really enjoyed them all!
So, Bob the Banana, like all the other food in the refrigerator just wants to be eaten. That is their role in life. The Mayor supports every food by telling them they will be chosen before they go bad, but when Bob starts to turn brown, it doesn’t look good for him.
Kayla is such a special little girl. She is body-positive, friendly, family-centric, and all-around just lovely. In the third book in this series, Kayla considers how people view themselves. Their hair, skin, scars, and everything else. I love that she considers these things, but ultimately decides that those are the things that make us special.
Kayla has such a special message for young readers through this story, and I truly hope that it finds its way into every little reader’s hands. Reinforcing the importance of self-love is so important, and I’m so happy to see it written so strongly in this story. My daughter and I will be reading this again and again!
Kayla is at it again! In this book in the series, she becomes friends with a little boy that needs some support. I really love that this book features mental health, and shows what types of support we can offer people that need help.
Kayla is a great role model throughout this story, and I think that children everywhere can relate to her and her friend. They can also learn so much from them! My daughter enjoyed this book, and I think that children ages pre-school through middle elementary will enjoy this as well!
Kayla is such a wonderful little girl. She has a loving mother who supports her and helps her see how special she is. I love the focus on family in this book. We really see what a lovely relationship Kayla and her mother have!
This is a story that so many children will love. It’s easy to connect with Kayla and for children to see themselves in her story. There is a great message about finding out who you want to be and pursuing that, as well as a wonderful reminder to enjoy your time together as a family! The illustrations are quite lovely, and my daughter absolutely enjoyed them!
This book. I have nothing but love for this! What an absolutely fabulous way to help children with their feelings! The message is positive, encouraging, and understanding of children and their feelings! I love that it makes children feel like they are in a safe space to express and understand their emotions.
This was a wonderfully interactive story, which asks the children to participate in different ways. We have some seek and find activity, but also some really great actions for self-love. My daughter really enjoyed interacting with Piggie!
This is a cute book with Rambee Boo the dog as our main character. Rambee Boo and his family are heading out for a lake vacation. We get to see each day’s adventures and fun, but there’s always something that Rambee Boo keeps losing! Thankfully, it gets returned each day!
I think this was a really fun story about a loving, adventurous family pet and his special lovely toy. My daughter enjoyed the story and Rambee Boo himself! The illustrations are bright and perfectly match the story, providing great assistance for a young reader to visualize what is happening.
There are so many things that are new in a child’s life. I really enjoy finding books that help them experience these life changes. The Adventures of Molly & Ollie: Moving Day is the story of Molly and her move to a new home.
Molly is worried about moving. She doesn’t want everything to be different, and she is sad to leave her friends. When she gets to the new house, she meets Ollie, an owl that lives in her backyard. He helps her to see the things that are the same, like all of her stuffed animals and toys. He is a welcoming new friend for her, and he makes the move much easier!
Awesome Dog 5000 vs. The Kitty-Cat Cyber Squad is the third book in the Awesome Dog 5000 series. This is a really fun book for a middle-grade reader! It’s full of adventure and lots of situations that will make readers laugh!
This is a graphic novel, so it has a mixture of text and illustrations to help tell the story. The illustrations are great, and are, truly, a lot of fun!
