Our Review: “Butterfly Girls” written by Beryl Reichenberg is a lovely story about two girls and a butterfly that teaches a little bit about Monarch butterflies while doing it in a make believe way. The book contains a mixture of photographs and illustrations beautifully done. For a few of the larger words that might be hard to understand, the back of the book had a glossary. The story was well-written and imaginative. It kept the reader listening and one can only imagine what this author's other books look like.
Our Review: Sandra Bennet's humorous tale, "Gingerbread Aliens," follows three brothers and the trouble they cause, which gets quite out of hand. A simple day of baking turns into a blown out of proportion extravaganza that will get the reader so involved in what is happening at the moment that it will leave the reader wondering what will happen next. My daughter thought the gingerbread aliens looked cute and funny and while the illustrations were not in color, they were well-drawn. I found it interesting that some of the words were done with a different font to emphasize words in the book. All in all, it was an enjoyable book to read. Sandra has told me that it is a book for early readers and reluctant readers who are in between stages from colored picture books to larger chapter book without any illustrations. I think this is a good idea! Just a note, this e-book isn't available in Canada.
Our Review: Ray Turner's "In the Land of Rhyme" is a delight to read. The rhymes were well-written and easy to read. They easily rolled off the tongue, making it fun and the story within was entertaining. The illustrations were well-drawn and enjoyable to view. A book that will have readers reading it again and again. My husband who is not much for poetry enjoyed listening to this as well. I would recommend this book for any shelf!
Our Review: “The Homework Goblin,” written by Ashley Howland is about a boy, his homework and the Homework Goblin that is a well-written story that leaves the reader in suspense as they continue to read, wondering what might happen next. The story keeps the reader interested at all times and is easy for children to read. The story was very creative and my daughter and I did not see the ending coming. The story had action in it, causing the reader to become more involved as they wonder what happens next. The story was very creative and my daughter and I look forward to reading some of Ashley Howland's other books.
