Why Does That Star Follow Me? by Wayne Harris-Wyrick

Follow along with this rhyming story about stars. Whether in the car or in a house and whether playing or resting, the child in this story sees a star that seems to follow him everywhere. Even the dog sees it… unless it’s foggy.

Why Does That Star Follow Me? by Wayne Harris-Wyrick is an adorable rhyming story full of wonder and discovery. The colorful illustrations by Andrea Gray make it cheery as the two characters go along their journey. After the fun is over, the reader is treated to all types of helpful information about stars: what they are, why they shine, and how far away they are. Readers even learn how stars follow you.

Why Does That Star Follow Me? is entertainment and education bundled into one cute package. I look forward to reading more from Harris-Wyrick.

How to Defeat the Icky, Filthy, Creepy, Slimy Corona Monster by Robert F. DeFinis, Ed.D. is a timely rhyming story to help you encourage good and healthy habits in your children so they can return to the life they knew before the coronavirus.

Right now, things seem so uncertain for parents. Just imagine how kids are feeling.

Readers are encouraged to be vigilant so the future can be better.

How to Defeat the Icky, Filthy, Creepy, Slimy Corona Monster is such a fun book, your children will forget they are learning something. This book can help assure your children it will be okay and address some of their fears. I like that the author reminds readers to remember those first responders who made our lives better and that it encourages children to look to the future where playing outside and hugging is no longer a scary thing.

Book Review: Purr-Fectly Home by Kimberly Palmucci


Author Kimberly Palmucci is back with the next book in her shelter animals series,ย Purr-fectly Home. Teaming up again with artist Brandi McCann, this book is about Lucky and Princess. Lucky had found his new home, and he enjoyed every room and scratching post in the place. But, that basement was too scary for him. One day, he notices a new scent in the house. Come to find out, Princess has moved in. She had struggled to find her forever home. Together, they overcome their fears and form a close bond.

If you enjoyed the first two books in the series, you’re going to love this one. Purr-fectly Home is such a sweet story, and it is inspired by real life animals, which makes it even more meaningful. The pairing of Palmucci and McCann is sheer perfection. McCann’s illustrations capture every adorable moment. Her colorful illustrations will capture the eyes of all readers. Though a total stand alone story, readers will love to follow these shelter animals along from book to book.

Any pet lover will want to read Purr-fectly Home. It is also a wonderful way to help kids celebrate differences and learn how to thrive in new situations. I’m eager to see what Palmucci has planned for the future.

Purr-fectly Wise by Kimberly Palmucci

In this touching second book of Kimberly Palmucci’s series featuring shelter animals, readers learn the story of Wise Cat, who they met in Purr-fectly Lucky.

Purr-fectly Wiseย goes back to the time when Wise Kitten was adopted by a man who found him on the street. They spent many happy years together, until Wise Man could no longer care for him. Wise Kitten, having matured into Wise Cat, is brought to the shelter. He helps his furry friends there, but there is more in store for Wise Cat.

Turning again to real-life inspiration, Palmucci uses the story of two energetic puppies who grew into wise senior pets under her watchful eye, into a sweet rhyming story of a senior cat whose future still holds so much. Readers who enjoyed Wise Cat in Purr-fectly Lucky will be happy to learn more about him, but even if you don’t read the first book, Purr-fectly Wiseย will capture the hearts of everyone.

Artist Brandi McCann is back to provide the illustrations for the second book in this series. Her cheery sun with its smiling face, the sweet snuggles between Wise Man and Wise Kitten, and the cute beard and eyeglasses on Wise Cat’s face are just some of my favorite parts of this artwork. Author and illustrator work well together to bring these stories to life. I hope they will continue.

There is so much to love in Purr-fectly Wise. It will have a special place on the bookshelf and be an often requested read.
