D.L. Finn5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great combination book to give as a present!  Reviewed in the United States on November 30, 2020

I love seeing Ms. Cheadle’s cooking creations on social media. They are always fun and creative. When it was time to buy my granddaughters a gift, I knew a book about fairies and cooking would be the perfect fit for my four- and five-year-old grandkids. Before wrapping the book up, I read it. I was charmed with the story, loved the recipes, and impressed mother and son wrote it. I look forward to reading this with my youngest grandchildren and then picking a recipe to make together. This is a great combination book to give as a present!

The final author today is Elizabeth Jade with a recent review for Akea – The Power of Destiny (Book 1 in the Akea Series)

About the book

Akea is born into a family of sled dogs and a life that follows a predictable path, but from the day she first sees the lone wolf, Kazakh, Akea knows her future lies beyond the safety of her home. Kazakh is well aware of Akea’s destiny and the pack laws he will break to help her reach it. Regardless of the challenges ahead, he must make sure this young husky will be ready, even if it means his life.

This husky, wolf story is a new addition to the great animal fiction tradition of Jack London and Erin Hunter, where the story is told through the eyes of the animals. It is a captivating coming of age story which also teaches children about friendship, overcoming obstacles, and most importantly, that there is nothing wrong in being different; In fact, differences can be a force for good. Akea – The Power of Destiny is the first in a series of chapter books for seven to eleven year-olds.

One of the recent reviews for the book

When ‘Akea’ made its way through my letterbox this morning, I told myself I’d make a start on reading the first couple of chapters whilst I did a bit of exercise. An hour later, I was still on the exercise bike as I read the final page.

Akea’s a beautiful story about a husky that discovers she’s descended, partly, from wolves. She works to find her place in the wolf pack, balancing her wild instincts with the domestic husky and sled dog life she was born into. She bridges both worlds, eventually discovering acceptance in both.

This is a short novel. The ten chapters kept me occupied for about an hour, and I really enjoyed the experience. The length of the story meant that it was ideal to read in just one sitting, which is great as the compelling story kept me wanting to keep reading. Meanwhile, this novel is short enough that my young daughter can enjoy it without feeling too daunted. She’ll likely read it in smaller sittings, a chapter or two at a time.

This is a beautifully written novel that really captures the atmosphere of the forest, of sled dog life and of a young husky that wants to find where she belongs.

A recent review for And So, Ahmed Hears

Katy Williamson 5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful, emotional story  Reviewed in the United States on August 19, 2020

Ahmed is a very quiet child who is prone to accidents. After an incident with a swing, his mother takes him to get his ears checked and discovers that he can’t hear. With the help of a new hearing aid, however, Ahmed’s world becomes brighter.

This is a beautiful, emotional story that can open kids’ eyes to the struggles of hearing impaired children, and hearing impaired children might see themselves in little Ahmed. Beautiful watercolor illustrations and gentle rhyme scheme carry the story along gracefully, and can help keep children engaged. And So, Ahmed Hears is a wonderful, hopeful story with a very real topic that both kids and parents alike will enjoy.

The final book today with a recent review is A Beechworth Bakery Bears (The Beechworth Bakery Bears 1) by Frank Prem

About the stories

The Beechworth Bakery Bears are having lots of fun.

They are rowing in regattas and taking tea in the pie warmer.

They are riding on bobsleds and slurping coffee.

They are keeping watch over the bakery and making sure that everyone has cake to eat.

They are waiting, and hoping, that someone might take them home, where perhaps scones will be made!

They are ready to tell you all their stories . . .

A recent review for the book

Aug 19, 2020 Christine Goodnough rated it Five Stars

This is a delightful and easy way to step back into childhood, when teddy bears could talk and move about. These bears are supposed to sit on shelves at the Beachworth Bakery and coffee shop, politely waiting for someone to come along and adopt them. But they go exploring and having fun, as revealed in Frank’s clever rhymes.

I’d like to read this e-book to my grandchildren soon, and hope it will be coming out in a paperback before long. The photos are excellent and it would be fun to sit down and go through the book with young children and grandchildren.
