Doctoroo & the Case of the Red-Hot Hawaiians: Book Review/Author Interview/ Giveaway

My Thoughts: Beautiful Illustrations that bring the characters to life with vibrant colors! It was fun flying to Hawaii with Doctoroo and trying to solve the mystery of the red-itching skin the pig dancers encounter. Was it something in the volcanos? Or perhaps poison ivy? You must hike and look at plants to find out. … Continue reading Doctoroo & the Case of the Red-Hot Hawaiians: Book Review/Author Interview/ Giveaway

The Elegant Emu: Book Review & Giveaway!

A humorous book that teaches table manners to children. My daughters enjoyed the story and the fun illustrations! It says for ages 3-11, but I had to define some of the vocabulary for my 6-year-old. It did lead to an interesting conversation about etiquette. It slowed the flow to pause and explain words, but it … Continue reading The Elegant Emu: Book Review & Giveaway!

Today the US remembers our fallen heroes. This, with the tragic shooting at the elementary school in Uvalde, Tx, still heavy on our country's hearts, I was tempted to discontinue my segment on Mental Health Awareness.

Sunny and the Cats: Book Review and Giveaway!

This is probably my favorite children's book I've read this year, and I think my six-year-old and two-year-old agree. A cat and dog story of how we can get along with others different from us, have fun, and help each other in time of need. It was cute to see the ruckus caused on both … Continue reading Sunny and the Cats: Book Review and Giveaway!

The Bones of Amoret: Audiobook Review + Giveaway

My thoughts: This is definitely a whodunit mystery, with the author displaying a great sense of humor. I got a copy of the audiobook from the author and iReadtours, but was not required to give a good review. The narrator did an outstanding job as the elderly Doctor Noah, who tells a reporter of the … Continue reading The Bones of Amoret: Audiobook Review + Giveaway
