Paddletail the Beaver and His Neighbors
Paddletail the Beaver & His Neighbors: Old Homestead Tales Volume 3 - Neil Wayne Northey

Paddletail the Beaver and His Neighbors is the third of four volumes of Neil Wayne Northey’s Old Homestead series.  Like the first two volumes this is a quick and pleasant children’s book that follows the lives of numerous animals inhabit the area around the Wildwood Pond in the Black Forest though the titular Paddletails.  Although the third book in the series, it doesn’t have to be read in order while still providing enjoyment to young children either reading on their own or being read to by their parents.

The Mallards and Their Neighbors (Old Homestead #2)
The Mallards and Their Neighbors - Neil Wayne Northey

The Mallards and Their Neighbors is the second of four volumes of Neil Wayne Northey’s Old Homestead series.  Like the first volume, this is a quick and pleasant children’s book that follows the lives of numerous animals that inhabit the area around the Duck Pond though the titular Mallards with brief appearances by Mr. Bluebird.  Although this is the second book of the series, it can be read before the first volume and still provide enjoyment to young children either reading on their own or being read to by their parents.

The Bluebirds and Their Neighbors (Old Homestead #1)
The Bluebirds and Their Neighbors - Neil Wayne Northey

The Bluebirds and Their Neighbors is the first of four volumes of Neil Wayne Northey’s Old Homestead series.  A quick and pleasant children’s book that follows the lives of numerous animals, but mostly the titular Bluebird family, around the Old Homestead that will provide enjoyment to young children either reading on their own or being read to by their parents.  From the outset this book makes it clear that is coming from a Christian perspective and uses that to make comparisons for the traits animals show to that of humans in their sinful nature.  However given that this book was first published in 1930, it should not be surprising and should not deter some from reading this.

The Berenstain Bears' New Neighbors
The Berenstain Bears' New Neighbors - 'Stan Berenstain', 'Jan Berenstain'

The Berenstain Bears' New Neighbors, written by  By Stan Berenstain and Jan Berenstain, is about a family who is learning to accept their new neighbors even though they look completely different from what they are used to. I can use this story in my classroom to teach about acceptance, and being kind to others even though they may look different. I can read this book on during the first week of school and allow all of the students to have a Meet and Greet with each other.

Fight
Forget You, Ethan - Whitney G.

Rachel has hated her neighbor since she was a young girl.  He was always everywhere she looked.  He was always someone to hate.  He was always her strongest friend and confidante.  She hated it.

 

Ethan had hated Rachel since he was small.  Why would seeing her after several years change how he feels?  Maybe he felt this way for a while.  Maybe they are more than enemies.  Maybe it is time to find out.

 

This story was a bit of a surprise.  I thought the characters and their banter was great.  I was not a big fan of the back and forth.  For those wondering what that meant, I mean I dislike it when there are flashbacks in a book.  I find it disruptive.  This was a bit hard to follow, but the ending is more than worth the wait.  I give this a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
