Buckle up for more adventure and mystery as Adam and Justin Sinclair along with Kim and James, search for the third Stone of Power in an ancient city hidden in the depths of the Mexican jungle.
The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper is steeped in the mythology and legends of the ancient Aztec and Maya. James and his young adventurers embark on their latest journey, which quickly goes haywire when their small plane crashes. Rescued by an uncontacted tribe, the teens must carry on without James, who was injured in the crash. Led by Tukum, future leader of the tribe, they search the dense and dangerous jungle in search of the lost city, with Dr. Khalid hot on their trail.
If you like adventure, mystery, and a fast-paced story that holds your attention from first page to last, you will want to grab a copy of The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper by Fiona Ingram. In the third installment of The Chronicles of the Stone, the teens continue to meet danger head on, using their skills to search for the next Stone of Power and hopefully outwit the evil Dr. Khalid. After James is hurt, the teens must trust the uncontacted tribe to help them in their quest, so the reader is treated to new characters that play vital roles in the story.
This series just keeps getting better. Though I highly recommend starting from the beginning, this is a stand alone novel. Pick up this one or start with Book 1 and see how exciting reading can be!
In this charming story, Little Possum likes to sneak up and eat things, but Little Sweetpea isn’t about to become his next snack, so she shows him another treat. Little Possum and Little Sweetpea by Halle J. Ladd is so cute. Neither of the two friends really understands how the other lives, but that doesn’t stop Little Sweetpea from helping out so Little Possum can find something good to eat.
The hand-drawn artwork is a special and unique part of this story. It can be the simplest things that have the most meaning. The only distraction from a great tale was the lack of editing. Run on sentences and missing punctuation pulled me away from Little Possum and Little Sweetpea’s story. I still enjoyed it and found it an adorable story of friendship.
If you and your little ones enjoy reading friendship stories, check out Little Possum and Little Sweetpea.

I received a digital copy of this book from the author. This review contains my honest opinions, which I have not been compensated for in any way.
Halle J Ladd has had experience as a teacher in mainstream schools and special needs. She specialised in a school library for some time and engaged children of all ages and abilities in these roles. She has a Master’s of Teaching and a Bachelor of Arts (Sociology) and loves to see the enjoyment of books through young eyes.
The Thankful Unicorn: Dream by Hayley Rose is an adorable coloring book/gratitude journal for young people. Illustrated by Lynx Studios, this colorful, sparkly cover opens to a black and white interior featuring daily pages to be filled in focusing on what the writer is thankful for, their dreams and goals, what they love about themselves, and their daily affirmations. Inspiring quotes are found at the bottom of those pages. Each opposite page has a stunning drawing waiting to be colored.
Part of Rose’s Thankful series, this book inspires creativity and positive thinking. This is the second journal of this nature that I have reviewed. Already a fan of Rose’s books, I’m thrilled to see how she continues to engage young readers in such a meaningful and fun way.
