What a delightful and fun story you will find in Sloth the Lazy Dragon by Regan W.H. Macaulay.
Sloth had become out of shape and lazy as he guarded the pile of treasure. When one brave Dwarf named Radish decides to help him change his habits, Sloth is finally able to take flight.
Macaulay has crafted a story that encourages healthy habits without preaching. Young readers will enjoy reading how Radish helps Sloth work hard, eat right, and set goals for himself. As progress is slowly made, Sloth feels better and is so overjoyed with what he can do he rewards Radish in a special way.
Accompanying the story is artwork from talented Canadian artist Alex Zgud. This versatile artist has brought Sloth, Radish, and their world to life with stunning details that fit perfectly into the story.
Sloth the Lazy Dragon might just make it easier for you and your children to have the discussion of creating healthy habits. Kids who enjoy fables and fairy tales or stories of mythical creatures will get a kick out of this one.
I look forward to more of Macaulay’s work.

In Camelot, King Arthur’s dog encounters a world of danger and magic…
Follow Cavall as he embarks on a quest that will put the unbreakable bond between a dog and his person to the ultimate test.
When Cavall and his older brother, Glessic, leave the comfort of their simple barn to join the lavish court of Camelot, Cavall wants nothing more than to prove he’s a good dog to the great knights and dogs of the castle—especially to King Arthur.
But Gless says only the best dogs are worthy of greatness, and Cavall has never been as strong, brave, or fast as his brother.
Meanwhile, malevolent forces lurk in Camelot, and Cavall must figure out how to protect his person. To make matters worse, Arthur’s mysterious nightmares are threatening to shake his grip on reality and undermine his authority as king.
To fight back against the dangers of the dream world, Cavall will need help from some loyal hounds and the enchanting, sometimes frightening creatures who call themselves the fay.
In this captivating debut from Audrey Mackaman, Cavall will have to prove not only that he can be a good dog for his person, but that he is capable of a greatness all his own.

It is so rough to be a technology dummy. 🙂 Here’s my review of this sweet book:
The Flower Fairy stumbles upon a queen who is sad because an evil ogre has taken her castle and she has nowhere to live.
What could be more perfect than combining fairies and superheroes? The Flower Fairy Superhero by Noam and Bryan Atinsky is a delightful and charming story that has been enhanced with audio so you and your child–and eventually your child alone–can read along. It’s just the right length to keep youngsters engaged. The artwork by Francisco X. Mora is lovely and perfect for such an adorable story.
The story behind the story–which you can find here–is very moving. It is nice to see the author donating part of the proceeds to the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
A superb story of kindness and friendship, The Flower Fairy Superhero will delight your child so much it will be read again and again.
