Review: Dream Big
Dream Big - Kat Kronenberg Dream Big - Kat Kronenberg
So we received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.
 
So when I saw this book I thought okay this maybe something A would like. It has animals, a catchy title, looks like bright colors she would love to read this. For us it was okay, there are no words and for me I am not big on that type of format. I like a story with words to be told, as I am not very good at telling a story. Normally I would give a book like that a solid two but A liked looking at the pictures and telling me what the animals were doing so I gave it a three. What I gathered from the pictures and the title is to dream big and never give up. Keep trying for your dreams they will come true.

What Do You Do with an Idea? - Kobi Yamada

What do you do with an idea? That is a really good question. One day you might have an idea that you don't really know what to do with or where it came from. The best thing to do with it is to not give up on it. When you feed your idea it becomes bigger and bigger until it is a part of everything. This is something wonderful to teach in any grade level. Students could even think back on times that they had a big idea, but was too afraid to embrace it. Or maybe they need to come up with their own idea. This book teaches the importance of not giving up on a dream and to always keep fighting for it.

Dream Big, Little Pig! - Kristi Yamaguchi,Tim Bowers

This was an adorable book about a girl pig who is determined to find something to excel at.

As the book continues you will see her do all kinds of things, from dancing to modelling, but sadly well her dreams get shattered left and right and I just felt so sorry for our little MC. Everyone was cheering for her (well, her family was), and I thought she deserved to find her place, to find something she could be famous and awesome at.

When we get to the last part, with the rink, I knew immediately that this was it. This was going to be the thing for our little pig. And no, that is not a spoiler, if you look at the cover you will see the same thing. :D

I just loved Poppy and how determined she was, how she just kept trying, never giving up, never stopping to find something. She will show people that she can do something. Even if it meant falling down, even if it meant rejections. This girl got the power. I just love a strong character who doesn't give up even when life is being harsh.

The ending was brilliant, and I am glad it was added, it really added something to the story, and showed that even though Poppy found something, she will continue finding other things as well.

The art was really cute, and it fits the story perfectly. I love how Poppy is drawn.

All in all, this is one book I would recommend to people.

Construction Beauty Queen - Sara Daniel 3.5 stars - nice story - sweet characters - easy read

This book is really sweet and really easy to read. The story is nice - it's set at a nice pace, and overall it was really nice. I didn't particularly connect with the characters, but I still enjoyed the book. There isn't a lot of action/drama or twists in the book, but it moves along nicely and I still had to know what happened to the characters. Anyone could read this book and not be offended - in my opinion. There are not really adult moments - however - it is classified as an adult book due to a few situations that arise between Matt & Veronica.
Veronica - was an ok lead female. She wasn't whiny or anything like that but she got on my nerves a little because she is inside her head so much... she never did anything that she thought - never said it either - which just bugged the hell out of me...
Matt - was ok as well. He was a lot like Veronica in the fact that he seemed to always be in his own head... I loved his story with his family and his niece.
Neither character wanted to take a chance on the other... that drove me bonkers!

Aside from that aspect, I enjoyed this book. Like I said above - it is a nice story with nice characters. The pace was good - I was never questioning what was going on. I did really like how everything in the story revolved around the two main characters but still included the entire town, Jenny, and Veronica's previous contacts. I would have like to see more of what happened after the Grand Opening - like maybe an Epilogue or something.
But, I did really think this book was well done.
