Operation Christmas Spirit by Vicki Watson

A rascally pony, two run-down carts, and a pile of moldy harness seemed like a strange start to a journey full of ups and downs that led Rosie to the most meaningful Christmas of her life. But looking back, she knew it all began that fall day at the livestock auction.

When Billy King asks questions about the biblical Christmas story, his curiosity inspires Rosie and the other children to dive into Scripture for the answers. Together they come up with a secret plan for a unique Christmas celebration–Operation Christmas Spirit.

Operation Christmas Spirit is the eighth book in the Sonrise Stable series, heartwarming stories of an extended homeschooling family as they live, learn, and love together. Mixing adventure, life lessons, and realistic horse stories, the series is a must for readers who enjoy family values, Christian faith, and, of course, horses!

Squirrel Superhighway by Anna C. Morrison

squirrel-superhighway Vocabulary building has never been so adorable and fun! Squirrel Superhighway by Anna C. Morrison is a wonderful new addition to her other titles for pre-readers and early readers. Repetitive words and repeated sounds are blended together in this charming story about Duke, a dog who wishes to be a squirrel. As Duke watches the squirrel superhighway working above him, he wonders how he can best help the squirrels gather their nuts.

In addition to a wonderful story, the beautiful artwork by Vanda Lavar will keep readers eagerly turning the pages to see what antics these animals are up to next. I loved the sweet ending and the closing illustration.

Morrison has certainly found her niche. I look forward to reading more of her work.

Candy and the Cankersaur by Jason Sandberg

CandyandtheCankersaur

A fun, zany adventure with several learning lessons along the way is what readers will find with Candy and the Cankersaur by Jason Sandberg.

Candy is a wealthy girl who has a father that showers her with gifts instead of spending time with her. She has a next door neighbor named Chucky who every time she gets a new gift, he gets a bigger and better version of what she has. But when Candy’s father buys her a Cankersaur, Chucky can’t seem to one up her. Instead, he decides to get even a different way with some interesting results.

I must start off by saying the humor in this story is great and the intention behind delivering a story with wonderful lessons is admirable. The artwork is superb and matches well with the zaniness of the story. The challenges with this story are related to craft.

The author seems to have bitten off a bit more than he can chew by delivering too many lessons at once: parents needing to spend quality time with their children, understanding why children sometimes mistreat each other, and how working together gets the job done. The story also occasionally drifts away from Candy’s point of view to give the reader a chance to get to know the father’s and Chucky’s internal thoughts. This isn’t something you would typically see in a children’s picture book. The lessons are also delivered in a fashion where they are told to the reader by the narrator more than delivered through the actions of the characters. These are all issues, however, that working with an experienced editor will fix.

In the end, I see a bright future for Sandberg in children’s book publishing. His artwork is amazing and his story ideas compelling. This book has also received numerous 4- and 5-star reviews, so it’s worth checking out this book and more of his work.

Mokey’s New Friends by Connie Arnold

mokey

Who says friends have to be alike? When Mokey skips out an open door at the zoo, he wanders off to find some friends to play with. He doesn’t discover any monkeys, but he does find some new friends who are just as fun to play with, no matter how different they are.

Mokey’s New Friends by Connie Arnold is a wonderful story that celebrates diversity. Though sometimes we are drawn to people who are similar to us, we also find friendship with those who have different likes and abilities than we do. With this charming book, Arnold encourages kids to accept the differences and enjoy the time spent with friends.

Artist Marina Movshina lends her impressive talents to beautifully illustrate this story. From the minute the reader meets Mokey, they will be captivated by the pictures Movshina has painted to bring this story to life.

Kids will enjoy this delightful story over and over again.
