This is a cute little poem about a mother’s love for her child. It was cute to read, and would make a wonderful bedtime story. The illustrations are beautiful.
This is a cute story with cute illustrations. It tells what happens when a giraffe loses a baby tooth. Until I read this, I had no idea that giraffes lost baby teeth. I also had no idea that giraffes didn’t have a tooth fairy, or that they didn’t get money for losing their teeth. The gift that was left and who left the gift was a surprise to me!
This is a great story for a child who might be close to losing teeth. It would help alleviate the fear about the loss.
I loved the first 2 books in this series. Loved them!
This third book didn’t flow as smoothly as the first two. It was much darker and seemed to jump from point to point without much logic. If you weren’t familiar with the characters from the previous two books, you didn’t get much out of reading this book. The characters were well developed in the first two books, so it’s possible that the author didn’t bother to fully form them, assuming that the reader would know the characters from the previous two.
I thought the ending was great, and I will read the fourth one in the series, just because I need to know what happened. I was going to give it a lower rating, but the ending made me raise it a star. Most of the book was a 3 star book, though.
This was kind of a fun book. It was like the wild West on hippos.
I had a little trouble suspending belief on some of the things in the book, but the author was upfront about the unbelievability of the book.
It is definitely worth reading and I’d recommend it, for sure. I am looking forward to the other books in the series.
How do you do anything without magic? Petal has to find out in order to make Nettle happy.
The story is cute and the illustrations are great! It would make a great read-out-loud book while a child looks on at the pictures.
I loved this book! The series was recommended by a friend and I am so grateful.
This is the story of a young woman who is making her journey through a magical world, learning as she goes along.
There is a lot of adventure and mystery, so something is always happening.
It was a fun read and I can’t wait to get into the third in the series.
I loved this illustrated, abridged story of how Zora Neale Hurston became a writer. She loved telling and writing stories, and it showed in her writings.
I think that a child might not know who the author is, since a lot of her writing seems to be geared toward adults. Plus, she wrote quite a while ago. It is a story about reaching for your dreams, so a child might enjoy that part of it, though.
The illustrations were beautiful. I really enjoyed them, especially with the word bubbles emphasizing what had been written on the page.
Be Kind, Little Dragon!: A Book to Teach Children about Kindness, Empathy and Compassion. Picture Books for Children Ages 4-6. Manners Book, Self-Regulation Skills by Melissa Winn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Cute illustrations make this book even better! The story is about teaching your dragon to be polite, but I suppose it could be used on humans, too.
It would be a great bedtime story for children who aren’t always polite and thankful.
What a great book! As the author states in the notes at the end of the book, it’s a little dark for a children’s book, but it is so good, I don’t think anyone minds. The humor in it offsets the darkness.
My main complaint with the book is that the gingerbread man has such an important part in the story, but he never has a name. Even the golems have names, even though they are just the names of the colors on them. This little guy needs a name. Thankfully, though, he doesn’t get eaten by Bob, or anyone else for that matter.
What a creepy book! I wouldn’t exactly say it was horror, but it was certainly creepy.
I had trouble with some of the names, since they aren’t names we commonly hear. I figured out who was who though.
The book was worth reading, though. I don’t feel like I wasted time reading it.
