An early review for the book

Michele Rolfe5.0 out of 5 stars Dealing with a Bully  Reviewed in the United States on December 8, 2020

Delfina is a small, quiet Dragon who shows the rest of the Dragons how to deal with a Bully nicely. She flies up to Drago, the BUlly Dragon, with Drystan. They hope to get Drago to stop bullying everyone. What Delfina does is very nice & she & the other Dragons make a new friend!

I really like Delfina’s Purple & Pink scales! I also Love how Janice teaches children how to deal with a bully in a peaceful way.

Now time for some reviews.

The first review today is for Myrtle the Purple Turtle which is the first in this delightful series written by Cynthia Reyes and Lauren Reyes-Grange with illustrations by Jo Robinson

About the book

Myrtle is a lovely Turtle. Not an ordinary Turtle. She is Purple and different from other turtles. After being bullied by another turtle, Myrtle tries to become someone else. In the end, Myrtle and her friends help children learn to not be afraid of being different. Myrtle the Purple Turtle is a thoroughly engaging story that stresses the importance of self-acceptance and friendship.

One of the recent reviews for the book

D. W. Peach 5.0 out of 5 stars Vibrant illustrations and a sweet story for your preschooler. Reviewed in the United States on December 8, 2020

Murtle is a unique turtle – she’s purple. And when another turtle points out to her that she’s different, she does everything she can to change her color to green – all to no avail. Then, with the help of her friends, she learns that turtles comes in a lot of different colors, and that being purple is wonderful. The story’s message of self-acceptance and diversity is perfect for young children. and the vivid illustrations are a delight. I recommend this sweet book to preschoolers and their parents.

A recent review for the book

Robbie Cheadle 5.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully illustrated book  Reviewed in the United States on November 30, 2020

This is another cute and beautifully illustrated children’s book by author and poet, Frank Prem. The book is about a collection of fluffy bears who live in a local bakery and who all contribute to the running of the bakery and the entertainment of the customers.

I read the ebook and each page has a beautiful colour photograph of one or more of the bears, with a little poem that complements the antics or actions of the bears in the picture. There is a bear baking scones and a bear who is chilling as well as bears who are boating and bears who are watching.

A young child could not read this book on his/her own, but would require parental guidance as some of the language is a little complex. I prefer books for children that expand children’s vocabulary and understanding and the reader of this book could have a lot of fun explaining sounds and teaching language concepts to a child.
