Cleo Can Tie A Bow by Sybrina Durant

Cleo loves bows and recalls how a story about a rabbit and a fox taught her how to tie them.

Cleo Can Tie A Bow is an enchanting story that will delight young readers while teaching them a new skill. The neat thing about this book is that it is a story within a story. The book opens by introducing readers to Cleo, a girl who loves bows. Then Cleo remembers the story of how a helpful fox once help a long-eared rabbit keep her ears from dragging on the ground.

This story is illustrated in beautiful fashion by Pumundi Gardiyawasam. The pink flowers on the cover, the green in Cleo’s eyes, the variety of colorful butterflies, and the sad, droopy-eared rabbit’s face all were special bits of artwork that brought this story to life for me.

Learning a new skill has never been such sweet fun!

Little Possum and Little Sweetpea by Halle J. Ladd (Review & Giveaway)

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.

New Releases in Children’s Books

Based on a viral video comes the story of one boy’s positive energy and how a sunny outlook can turn everything around.

It’s a new day and Ayaan has woken up on the wrong side of the bed, where nothing feels quite right. What if he doesn’t know the answer at school? What if he messes up? But as he sets out that morning, all it takes is a few reminders from his mom and some friends in the neighborhood to remind him that a new day is a good day because…
HE IS SMART,
HE IS BLESSED,
AND HE CAN DO ANYTHING!

Meet Henley, an all-around good kid, who hates to read. When he’s supposed to be reading, he would rather do anything else. But one day, he gets the scariest homework assignment in the world: find your favorite book to share with the class tomorrow.

What’s a kid to do? How can Henley find a story that speaks to everything inside of him?

Malcolm Mitchell, bestselling author of The Magician’s Hat, pulls from his own literary triumph to deliver another hilarous and empowering picture book for readers of all abilities. Through his advocacy and his books, Malcolm imparts the important message that every story has the potential to become a favorite.

Little Mole’s Christmas Gift by Glenys Nellist

A sweet story from beginning to end is what you’ll find in Little Mole’s Christmas Gift by Glenys Nellist.

Little Mole is thrilled when he finds the perfect mushroom for Mama’s Christmas gift. As he is dragging it home, he comes upon some woodland friends in need, and proves kindness is one of the best gifts of the season.

This is one of those Christmas stories you and the kids will never tire of reading. A little one so excited about giving his mother the best gift he can find, suddenly has to make decisions about how he can best help his friends.

Sally Garland’s artwork on Little Mole’s Christmas Gift is adorable and so realistic you can almost feel the wind blowing the snow around. These two women collaborate so well together. I can’t wait for more Little Mole stories.

A charming story of the season awaits you and your little ones. Highly recommended.

Publisher Going out of Business – Limited Stock Available!!!

Guardian Angel Publishing will be closing its doors and I am so sad. They took a chance on an unknown author like me and published three of my four books.

Until I figure out what to do, the only way to purchase these is through the stock I have on hand. I don’t have many books left, but one is a Christmas book, one a Thanksgiving book, and the other one tackles the topic of bullying from a Christian perspective.

In the hills outside Bethlehem, Obed guards his first flock of sheep. When the angels appear to tell of the Savior’s birth, he is hesitant to follow the others to see the new King. When Obed returns to his sheep, he realizes it is a night of miracles.

Ten-year-old Macy is waiting for her grandparents to arrive on Thanksgiving. When the front door swings open, Grandma and Grandpa are covered with hugs and kisses. Crash! Everyone rushes in to find the dog gnawing a meaty turkey leg. Can Macy’s quick thinking save dinner?

Amos is targeted by the town bully because he is so small. When word reaches Amos of his friend David’s battle with Goliath, he thinks back to what David told him about putting his faith in God’s protection. Perhaps the same God can help Amos face his bully, too.
