One of the recent reviews for FDR.

May 30, 2020 K.r. Morrison rated it Five Stars

Another great tale! As always, Ms. Mojica has combined the abilities of young people and adults alike into her stories. Not everyone can weave a historical tale into something that all ages can enjoy.

She had me at the first picture of the interior of Hyde Park. What’s not to love about sweeping staircases?

She gives a short history on Roosevelt’s life, along with his accomplishments and the contributions he made for the betterment of society, followed by a short tour of the house Roosevelt lovingly called home.

I strongly believe that her series is the number-one choice for those looking to instill the love of history into their children

A recent review for the book

tpolen 5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful!  Reviewed in the United States on September 23, 2020

This is my first time ‘meeting’ Amanda and while there are several books in the series, I chose this one because I traveled to Calgary earlier this year and visited some of the places mentioned in the description.

What a delightful story! Amanda is excited to spend time with her friend, Leah, and show her around during her holiday with Amanda’s family. I really enjoyed ‘re-visiting’ some of these places with them, while also learning new facts. Being a dinosaur nerd (I love that great aunt Mary is a paleontologist), I wish we’d been able to visit the Royal Tyrrell Museum and see the World’s Biggest Dinosaur – maybe on our next visit.

Amanda is intelligent, feisty, and adventure-loving, and her inquisitive nature soon draws the girls into a mystery which results in some perilous situations. They run into some pretty unsavory characters while trying to learn more about the markings on the stone.

The author does a wonderful job of blending educational facts with a mystery and adventure that will thrill young (and older!) readers. These are quick reads I’d highly recommend, and I look forward to traveling with Amanda to more destinations.

The final author with a review is Patricia Furstenberg for The Cheetah and the Dog

About the book

Here is a cheerful picture book with sweet rhymes that celebrates diversity and promotes friendship, sure to resonate with families – particularly non-traditional ones and with the fans of Michael Jackson’s “Black or White”.

When a cheetah cub and a puppy dog bump into each other while chasing the same prey, it is only natural for them to play together until sundown; and the next day; and the following one.

The two animals care for each other so much that they even rescue their respective packs, thus becoming an African tale.

Inspired by the true story of Kasi, the orphaned male cheetah, and Mtani, the female Labrador, which struck a remarkable friendship and remained life-long friends, “The Cheetah and the Dog” is a glorious celebration of curiosity, respect for life, and unconventional wisdom, a heart-warming, fun read that belongs on any family’s bedtime shelf.

One of the recent reviews for the book

I bought “The Cheetah and the Dog” for my granddaughter’s birthday. She loves books, and I knew the subject of a dog and cheetah, and the colorful pictures would appeal to her. I read it after it arrived and loved the flow of the rhyming words. A sweet tale that’s based on a real dog’s relationship with a cheetah with a lesson in friendship, no matter what your differences are. Then, after the story, there are facts and photos of cheetahs, which is a wonderful bonus. I can’t wait to share it with my four-year-old grandchild. I’ll be buying more of Ms. Furstenberg’s children’s books as gifts.

About the book

Follow along with cousins, Abby and Holly, as they learn about some changes in history from their ghost friend, Felicity, who lived back in 1818. These changes came about when the girls traveled back to the past to their Victorian when it was once a boarding house.

While they were in the past they met a young woman, Annabelle Bradley, who was a talented artist. The cousins became friends with Annabelle in the short time they knew her. They also became involved in her life through her letters and diaries that they found in their home in the future.

The girls are distraught over how Annabelle died and want to go back and somehow change history to prevent her murder. In order to do this, they must enlist the help of their friends, Davey’s and Derek’s, great aunt, Gigi, who is a benevolent witch.

Apr 02, 2020 Gina R Mitchell rated it Five Stars

This lovely tale is perfect for reading to children. However, as a grannie, I enjoyed it immensely. There are lessons to be subtly taught through the words of this story.

The fun and interesting cheetah facts at end taught me several things I did not know. Very well done by the author.

The illustrations are vibrant and add a great deal to the book. I would not hesitate to recommend this story to parents, teachers, libraries, or anyone who enjoys a simple, well-written book.

LAJ 5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for little ones with an important message  Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 July 2020

What a lovely book for little ones. A catchy refrain for them to say together and gorgeous illustrations. This makes an important point about littering and the importance of using reusable containers and minimising single-use plastic, but in a jolly and fun way.

The final author today with a recent review is Paul Noel for Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow.

Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow by [Paul Noël, Alice Wright]

About the book

Bea Bee is the most resourceful, hardest working and happiest bee living in a hive located in a beautiful meadow. One day she notices a new sign on the gate and goes back to the hive to get wise old bee to come to the gate with her and read the notice as she doesn’t understand all the words. The news is bad; the sign is for a planning application to build houses all over the meadow. Wise Old Bee suggests that only if a rare or endangered species is found in the meadow is there a chance that the meadow can be saved. Bea suggests a wild idea on how to save the meadow from this happening. If they don’t then they are going to have to move the hive.

Her plan is fairly simple. There are some red flowers down near the stream that produce some fairly sticky pollen on them and she thinks that if she disguises herself as a red bee people will believe that there is a new species of bee. At least it will give the bees time to find out if there is a rare or endangered species in the meadow. Time to tell the Queen about the problem and also a possible solution. Bea tries out the deception on two young people camping in the meadow and they take several photographs that they load onto social media. Bea has started a series of events that she is unaware of.

Two teams are set up, some normal bees to keep a lookout on when visitors are coming and a “red” team to sow the story and keep each other from being caught. Will Bea and her friends from the meadow find a way to save it? This is a story that is meant to be read by a parent to a younger child or with a younger child and to be read by children themselves as they get older. Suitable for 7 to 11 years of age. This ebook version is associated with the normal sized paperback and is no different to the ebook associated with the large format and colouring book version of the story.

A Shep 5.0 out of 5 stars Bee inspired story  Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 August 2018

I have read the story and enjoyed it. I thought the general plot was good for a children’s book and loved the way Bea thought of using the red pollen as a disguise and how the bees insects and animals came together to thwart the developers and their destruction crew. It made me smile imagining it all.

I liked the conclusion but maybe I shouldn’t say too much about that in case I spoil it for other readers.

I thought the story was just the right length to hold a child’s attention and will enjoy telling it to my granddaughter.

The illustrations are well done and like the fact they are also at the back of the book for children to colour in.
