The Arrival
The Arrival

Review: Beautiful illustrations! The actually quality of the book is very nice as well. However, the pictures create a way out there description of immigration. I get the gist of the story, but for the most part it was hard to follow and I lost interest. My children had no interest in it at all. Read more

They All Saw a Cat
They All Saw a Cat

Review: Love the cat seen from multiple perspectives... The illustrations are big and colorful, and my two month old loves the bright pictures and lyrical and repetitive way the words sound. As he gets older, I know he'll appreciate the book in a different way, learning about mentalizing and perspective taking, which is the beauty of this book. I loved it so much, I bought a copy for my niece for Christmas. Read more

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Review: This story is not long (it's literally just the song), but it's really fun. Our kids love when we sing this story to them, and they even like to turn the pages and sing it to themselves sometimes. The illustrations are so well done, too. I definitely recommend it. Read more

Forever Young
Forever Young

Review: Love the book, but not happy with the service.
The professional, paper book cover was delivered wrinkled and torn.
I needed for a gift, so I emailed right away, but received no response.
The system that is supposed to handle problems, definitely needs to be updated and be made more "people who have given you years of service" user friendly. This one should have definitely been replaced, especially since it was given in memory of a great, "guitar-playing virtuoso, who went to heaven far ... Read more

5-Minute Princess Stories (5-Minute Stories)
5-Minute Princess Stories (5-Minute Stories)

Review: The title is misleading. The stories, if read aloud, feel like an eternity...my just turned three year old gets bored of them after 5 minutes, and we are not through with the story. Also, the pictures on the cover don't match up with the pictures in the story so that's frustrating when your child wants you to read "that one," referring to a picture. Read more

Only One You
Only One You

Review: The illustrations are cute, but this book bores my 2 year old daughter. The 'wisdom' is not very inspiring, a bit canned, and the storyline of a young fish named Adri seems disconnected from the bulk of the message. Anytime I offer to read this to my daughter she's not interested. Read more

What Should Danny Do?
What Should Danny Do?

Review: Kids have LOVED this book in play therapy sessions!! They’ve enjoyed the different endings. Even if they know the best answer, they’ve had fun experimenting with what happens when they choose not to do the right thing. Great bibliotherapy!! Read more

Dear Girl,
Dear Girl,

Review: I really like this story. I'm a follower of Jesus and I didn't find anything objectionable in it. It teaches girls that they are unique and to be thankful for the different qualities they have been given-like freckles etc- that makes them them. I talks about emotions too. I really like where it says something like if something doesn't seem right to just say NO. You can look on YouTube and find where people have taped themselves reading the book. I did that before purchasing for a neighbor girl. Read more

Oh, Baby, the Places You'll Go!
Oh, Baby, the Places You'll Go!

Review: The book came very quickly and was as stated. While it was short, it was just the right length for a parent to read aloud. The rhythm of the phrasing was 'catchy', and incorporated many of the other stories by this author. I recommend it as a little gift for a pregnant Mom. Read more

The Thief Lord
The Thief Lord

Review: I was quite hesitant when I picked up this book from the library. But, it was highly recommended. So, I thought why not... However, once I have started reading it, I was immersed in the story. The book is about the adventures of Prosper and Bo, who ran away from their dreadful aunt to Venice. Once in Venice, they bumped into Scipio, the Thief Lord, a kid himself with a mysterious identity. Scipio brought Prosper and Bo to his gang and gave them a "home". As Scipio took on a "big" job, his myster... Read more
