MY REVIEW

 

When one of the cubs asks, “Mom, why doesn’t Santa visit bears?”, this cute story unfolds as mama bear tells them why Santa doesn’t visit them on Christmas Eve, and Bo Bo’s solution to the problem puts a smile on my face, making me believe the saying, Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Donkey's Kite: A Horse Valley Adventure-Book 2 (Volume 2) - Liana-Melissa Allen,Liana-Melissa Allen

Check out this fun children’s book, Donkey Kite by Liana Melissa Allen.

I reviewed the first book in A Horse Valley Adventure, Three Little Horses and a Big Bully Donkey last Saturday.

MY ONE SENTENCE REVIEW

 

The Big Bully Donkey found out what it was like when the shoe is on the other foot, but sometimes ‘the hero’ will surprise you…and the message is…keep your mind open and it’s all about teamwork.

The three horses Jack, Max, Lax and their friend Donkey are back!

 

In Horse Valley it is a perfect day to go kite flying. Jack, Max, Lax, and Donkey decide to get creative by putting together their own homemade kites. However, Donkey’s kite doesn’t turn out very good. No matter how hard he tries to get it to fly, it just keeps tumbling to the ground.

 

How will poor Donkey get his kite to fly? Well, a friendly goose named Gusty is delighted to help him out.

 

In this Horse Valley Adventure, Donkey learns not to give up when all seems hopeless. They all learn a lesson about helping others and true friendship.

This adorable illustrated Three Little Pigs retelling had me smiling as the story plays out, with a few twists and turns created especially for the horses and beautiful pages that will unfold to the delights of any child.

GOODREADS BLURB(ALSO AVAILABLE IN SPANISH, “los tres caballitos y el burro bravo”). “The Three Little Horses and the Big Bully Donkey” is a tale (based on the “Three Little Pigs”), about three little horse brothers who suddenly lose their house that is destroyed by a fire. The young horses are totally alone and thrust into the reality of having to depend on themselves and each other against a bully donkey, who wanders the forest wrecking homes and bullying the other animals. This warm-hearted tale promotes strong values and has a fun premise. Written and humorously illustrated in vivid color throughout by Liana-Melissa Allen, the story is a proven winner for reading aloud to children.

The Illustrated Book of Sayings
The Illustrated Book of Sayings: Curious Expressions from Around the World - Ella Frances Sanders

The Illustrated Book of Sayings by Ella Frances Sanders is a collection of over 50 idioms from languages around the world. What I find most fascinating are the commonalities found. Translated literally, many of the expressions make no sense. However, almost all have counterparts in English and in other languages, illustrating the universality of emotions and thought. In other words, there is more that unites us than divides us. A wonderful book for adults and children.

So, so, so gorgeous
Are You an Echo?: The Lost Poetry of Misuzu Kaneko - Misuzu Kaneko,Toshikado Hajiri,Sally Ito,David Jacobson,Michiko Tsuboi,Setsuo Yazaki

Rating: 5* of five

 

Whenever a package arrives from Chin Music Press, I know that everything else has to go to the Later pile. As always, I was *so* richly rewarded when I opened these covers.

 

This gorgeous and extremely touching sampler of Kaneko Misuzu's poetry is perfectly illustrated. It is introduced by a brief recounting of Kaneko's unhappy life. While I would most definitely want my grandkids to read the poetry, I'd want to read Kaneko's story to them, and make sure I was fully present to gauge their need for explanation and/or comfort as the tale unfolds.

 

Even if you have no kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, or strange kids you can borrow, buy this beautiful object for your coffee table. You will be the coolest kid on the block.
