Beyond the great forest and towering Dragon Mountain lies Fairyland, a land of elves and trolls, dragons and giants, magicians and fairies. And in one corner, Fairyland East, lives Knight Kyle.

Luckily, Kyle has the help of his friends, including Lady Constance (who is as brave as a dragon), Dragobert (who really is a dragon), Elf Aurin (whose harp playing, unfortunately, puts Kyle to sleep), and Prince Nepomuk (who protects his friends and his wardrobe at all times).
Almost every day they find themselves in a new amazing adventure…

Completely Clementine – Grades 1-3 – $1.99 0 comments

Summer is coming, and Clementine is not ready. She is not ready to start speaking to her father again, because she’s still mad at him for eating meat. Instead, she has to express her sadness by giving him drawings of animals she knows would not want to be somebody’s dinner. T
Then there is the new baby on the way. Clementine’s mom sure doesn’t seem ready. She’s suddenly crazy about cleaning (Dad says she is nesting), but she doesn’t even have a name picked out yet. Clementine just hopes the baby won’t be a dud.
What Clementine really isn’t ready for is saying good-bye to her third grade teacher. She knows Mr. D’Matz is going to tell her all kinds of things that aren’t true. Everything else may be changing around her, but that doesn’t mean that Clementine has. But which is worse, saying good-bye, or not saying good-bye?

Book Report: Holly’s Heart, Volume 1 – Five Novellas by Beverly Lewis 0 comments

Five stories about Holly and the trials of being a teenager: Best Friend, Worst Enemy; Secret Summer Dreams; Sealed With a Kiss; The Trouble With Weddings; and California Crazy. The storylines are for the young teen audience yet older teens would also enjoy this book. All five novellas are in one e-book file for $9.99.

Her mom calls her Holly Heart because she was born on Valentine’s Day. Her younger sister, Carrie, is her shadow and her best friend, Andie, is the exact opposite of Holly but yet they share the deepest of secrets. All the facets of a teenage world, including boys, first crushes, dads and step-dads, clothes, phones, jealousy are intertwined through the stories. When I read the stories I enjoyed the plot but also the way the author used everyday speech and happenings to bring the characters to life.

Even though I’m a middle-aged woman, I enjoyed the stories as they took me back to those days when I was a care-free teenager and how small things could become large crises. This would make great summer reading for any teen.

Book Report: Princess Posey and the First Grade Parade 0 comments

Princess Posey and the First Grade Parade is an adorable look at little Posey’s woes and worries the summer before beginning the new-independence of first grade. Little Posey was a very believable and likable character, and the reading of this book was pretty timely for us, as Zack too, is finishing up Kindergarten and looking forward to beginning first grade in the fall.
*
I feel I must qualify just a bit, however, our perspective is a bit skewed on things pertaining to school, as we homeschool. So Zack will not have to face the anxiety of being left to walk down scary hallways by himself, or meeting new teachers, etc. (We both found ourselves being grateful that we don’t have to deal with these things as Posey did in the story!)
*
Although it is a “girl” book, we still very much enjoyed the story. That being said… Zack’s favorite part was when a couple of the neighborhood boys were teasing Posey about the “monster” and snakes that reside in the first-grade hall. Typical boy! 😉
*
Posey is a cute and spunky little girl who worries about the new changes that first grade can bring; yet she overcomes them beautifully while keeping in perfect character.
*
The best part of all, in our opinion, was after the story itself was completed. Then you get the chance to “interact” with Posey herself in a series of thought-provoking, but fun discussion questions. This book is definitely recommended for kiddos beginning that strange and scary time of changes that a new grade and a new class can bring.
*
Today Princess Posey and the First Grade Parade is selling for $4.99.

Book Report: The Unfinished Gift – Christmastime in 1943 0 comments

Traditionally, the Christmas holiday is a time of family and togetherness. Tragically, Christmas can also be a time of uncertainty and anxiety.
*
Dan Walsh’s novel, The Unfinished Gift, is the story of Patrick, a seven-year-old boy whose mother has died in an automobile accident while his father is serving in the Army Air Corps in England during World War II. Christmas is just a few days away when the social worker is forced to leave Patrick with his only relative in Philadelphia – his estranged grandfather.
*
While Patrick is a mature little boy with insecurities and fears of his own, his grandfather is a cantankerous, bitter old man who doesn’t want his grandson reminding him of his failures as a father to his only son, Patrick’s father Shawn.
*
God, working through a neighbor, a box of belongings, an unlikely hero during a snowstorm, and an unfinished gift, draws the grandfather out of his self-imposed prison of despair.
*
Mr. Walsh’s writing style is engaging; the story moves along at a good pace. He reminds us of the social issues in 1940s America; the cruelties of war; and that little boys can have a very strong faith in God. This book is available to download on your Kindle for only $4.69. You may also need a box of tissues.
