I read a review where the reviewer complained about all the horse talk. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but there was still a ton. I've never been into horses which I think is because as a teenager I rode a horse once without a saddle. He tried to buck me off, and when he finally stopped, I tried to get off, however, his giant shlonge came out so I had to do a kind of slide/hop back so I wouldn't accidentally touch it with my foot. It's just like a dog (well a lot bigger), it's all wet. Yuck! So, not a big fan. I think they're pretty from afar.
Not enough Heris. I don't know if the author was trying to rope in younger readers but I didn't enjoy it as much as the other books in the series. I'm still going to work my way through, but I'm hoping the future books are more about Heris (or Cecilia as long as there's not too much horse talk).
I adore Pete the Cat! Whether he is rocking in his school shoes, magic sunglasses, or his groovy buttons, all kids love Pete. This particular book would be great for sequencing, number recognition, or color recognition. I've had the pleasure of watching a class play bingo while listening to the audiobook. It was a fun activity that had them on the edge of their seats!
"The Day the Crayons Came Home, the sequel to Daywalt's best seller, "The Day the Crayons Quit, is quite possibly funnier than the first. This time the crayons are writing Duncan on postcards, from various places he has left and forgotten about them, letting him know they are very upset! The humor in this book is so fun to read and makes it easy to get into character. Again, the illustrations are colorful, funny, and some realistic. The children can relate to these illustrations because they are drawn on a young artist's level. Even some of the silly names of crayons are included in the story. This story could be used as an introduction to writing letters and how to address the person they are writing to. I would keep on the shelf for a fun read also!

"Colors of Christmas" Two Contemporary Stories Celebrate The Hope of Christmas By Olivia Newport
Two Contemporary Stories Celebrate The Hope of Christmas:
Christmas in Gold
What a story that had me in tears...What will happen when a older woman [Astrid] falls and breaks her ankle. Then her family wants to put her in an assistant living facility. Wow, what a family! You will just have to pick this one up to see how it will all come out as she meets a Physical Therapist named Carly.
Then next we have....
Christmas in Blue
This was such a wonderful contemporary heartwarming story of 'love, loss and the beauty of family and friends.' What will happen as a mysterious stranger [Gabe] appears in town to help Angela. How will this take a turn and instead of dread there will be 'joy and tenderness in Angela's heart' for this holiday.
Both of these stories are well written and will contain a message that is only for the reader to receive. I found these stories tender, so endearing and hopefully one hearts will be lifted for this Christmas holiday season from the read. I was left to be reminded to be 'thankful and never take anything for granted.'
Thank you to NetGalley and Barbour Publishing, Inc. for a review copy in exchange for my honest review.
Elder Races #3.5 Thea Harrison Paranormal Romance - Novella Teddy Harrison LLC July 11th 2017 eBook 80 Bought
This title was previously published and is being rereleased by the author. It has not been revised.
Meeting your soulmate? Great. Preventing your possible murder? Even better.
Alice Clark, a Wyr and schoolteacher, has had two friends murdered in as many days, and she’s just stumbled upon the body of a third. She arrives at the scene only minutes before Gideon Riehl, a detective in the Wyr Division of Violent Crime—and, as Alice inconveniently recognizes at first sight, her mate.
But the intense connection Riehl and Alice feel is further complicated when the murders are linked to a serial killer who last struck seven years ago, killing seven people in seven days. They have just one night before the killer strikes again.
And every sign points to Alice as the next victim.
True Colors is #3.5 in the Elder Races series.
I’ve previously read True Colors when it first came out on 2011. It has been republished with a new cover, but the content is still the same.
I really like the Elder Races series and anything that is published I devour with great relish.
Ms. Harrsion has created a fun and unique world. With a verity of supernaturals. This novel is short, to the point, and gives you just a taste of what she has created. Their’s danger, romance, and passion. Both characters are likable. It’s an insta-love romance. They both know they are mates and so they hit it off right away. The murder mystery was nice, but wrapped up rather fast and without a big explosion.
I enjoyed this novel, but I wish their was more.
Rated: 3 Stars
