THE SOAP BOX DERBY by V. Moua
Children's Book: The Soap Box Derby [Bed... Children's Book: The Soap Box Derby [Bedtime Stories for Kids] - V Moua

Sammy is riding his bike when a soap box derby car speeds by him causing him problems. He decides he must build a soap box derby car to beat the one that almost ran him over. And so he does.

 

I love Sammy. Once again he asks us for help. He does forget a few things for his car but remembers them when he runs into trouble.

 

I look forward to reading Sammy. He makes my day.

CASSIE'S MARVELOUS MUSIC LESSONS by Sheri Poe-Pape
Cassie's Marvelous Music Lessons - Sheri... Cassie's Marvelous Music Lessons - Sheri Poe-Pape

Cassie's new owner, Mrs. Applebaum, is a music teacher. Cassie wants to teach her students also, but she gets told to go to her bed. Cassie finally has enough of her bed so she shows Mrs. Applebaum she knows music. Mrs. Applebaum gets an idea and makes a surprise for Cassie. What is the surprise? Will Cassie be allowed to teach the children?

 

I enjoyed this story. Cassie has definite ideas about how she can contribute to the lessons, but will Mrs. Applebaum let her? I liked how Mrs. Applebaum brought Cassie into the lessons. It was a perfect solution. I appreciated how Cassie wanted to be involved with the students as well as their acceptance to her.

 

I look forward to reading more of Cassie.

COOKIE BUSTERS! by M F Smith
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 by Leo Tolstoy
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.
