Cookie Busters! - M.F. Smith

ChiChi invites her friends over for dinner but had no time to make dessert. Teddy Bear wants dessert. Bunny does too. They see the cookie jar on a high shelf across the kitchen. Teddy devises a plan and they're off on their cookie hunt. Will they suceed?


This is adorable. It's more for early readers as there are more words and few pictures but your older toddlers might sit for it. It is exciting as the stuffed animals come up with and execute Teddy's plan to get the cookies. He also has learned by watching Mum how to get the cookies. This is a fun read with more story than most children's books.

Shoemaker Martin - Leo Tolstoy,Bernadette Watts,Brigitte Hanhart

Martin is a shoemaker who likes to read the Bible after his work is done. One night after putting his Bible away and going to bed, he hears a voice but sees no one. The next day he helps Stefan the street cleaner, a young woman and her baby, and a boy accused of stealing. That night as he reads his Bible, he hears the voice again. Who is it? What did Martin do that made the voice and himself happy?


I liked this story. It is based on the Bible story of Matthew 25:35-46, which are my most favorite verses. Martin is kind to those in need. He helps them in small ways but to the Lord they are big. The story takes place in winter but can be read any time. It is a beautiful story with beautiful illustrations. This is a keeper.

12 Days of Christmas: A Counting Christmas Book for Kids - Rachael Poole

A counting book for toddlers using the carol, The 12 Days of Christmas.  As you read the book with your child, the child can count along with the verses of the carol.  The illustrations are bright and colorful.  Each page corresponds to a verse with each animal or person doing something different and wearing different outfits.  This is a cute book for your toddler and a good way toa remember the song for you.

JOSEPH, RULER OF EGYPT by Nancy Radke and Alison Miller
Joseph, Ruler of Egypt (Show & Tell Bible series) - Alison Miller,Nancy Radke,Randy Radke

This is the story of Joseph and his brothers. Joseph can interpret dreams. When he interprets dreams about his family, his brothers hate him. They hate him more because he is their father's favorite. When Joseph comes to bring them food, they plot to kill him but decide to sell him to merchants who are traveling past them. Joseph ends up in Egypt, a servant to Potipher. He gets thrown into jail where he interprets dreams for the other prisoners. His ability is brought to the attention of Pharoah who has him removed from jail to interpret his dreams. He becomes a ruler of Egypt.


This is one of my favorite Bible stories but so much was missing from this version. Though it is for children, they can understand the whole story and too much was missing in this book that it felt like I was walking into the middle of the story. I felt that I was missing the story. It also ended abruptly so I got no closure of when Joseph's brothers come to Egypt to buy food during the famine. Children may need a little explanation, but they know when things are left out. I'd like to see the author rewrite this book and put the whole story of Joseph and his coat and his brothers. The illustrations are beautiful, and they deserve the full story also.

THE TAMBOURINE QUEEN by Debra Bradley and Barbara Shagrin
The Tambourine Queen - Deborah Bradley,Barbara Shagrin,I. Cenizal

Grace ignores a new girl at school. That night her parents tell her they are moving. She becomes the new girl at school. Grace sees a tambourine on the shelf at school going to grab it the same time a boy grabs it. The teacher intervenes but Grace says she wants to do something quiet. The next day she and the boy share the tambourine and become friends.


I enjoyed this book. It shows how one day Grace ignores someone, not meaning to be mean, but because she was interested in the tambourine and didn't want to share. Grace understood only after becoming the new girl how the other girl felt. She learned how to make new friends and how sharing helps with that.

I liked the rhyming of the story. It was fun. The illustrations were good. This is good for early readers as well as toddlers.
