A heartwarming story of a boy who over comes his fears by applying his efforts and following the path of Jesus. Ben has to prove to his family he is responsible enough to take on summer camp and look in the face of everything that scares him.  In the process he proves to be a hero with his handicapped friend Mary who has lost her service dog and also his new found homeless friend Jeremy.

This is a book that will hold the interest of children, but also the reader will be able to identify with Ben’s fears and sibling rivalry. Janet Ann Collins has written a story that teaches compassion, alerts a child to the hardships of others in life. 

The story awakens children to the troubles some people have in their lives, and shows them how God interacts through all of us in ways we never expect.

The characters Ben and Tom develop personal growth both in daily life and in spiritual being.  Great story and inspiring book for kids.   Lots of stars for this one.

Bedtime Kisses

A beautiful little interpretation of a child who savors the bed time ritual.   When waiting for Mommy, kisses are given to all who wait in the play area.  In the end furry friends and child are tucked in bed after learning to count to ten.

The adorable illustrations by Ginger Nielson pop from the page, are soft, bright, enticing and are sure to be a child pleaser.  Bedtime Kisses written by Karin Larson is a resource book for toddlers learning to count to ten and also for Young children beginning to read.

I think this would be a perfect end of the day story with a soft and soothing feel that helps a child experience the bedtime tuck-in with security and contentment. 

Loved this book for its overall pleasing feel and affect

Stars and treats for this one!

Maddi's Fridge

Sofi and Maddie are best friends.  They play every day together. The playground is their favorite place to climb, run, and have fun.  Maddi and Sofi are pretty much like most kids, except that Maddi has a problem that is all too familiar these days.  She is hungry.

The story depicts some childhood difficulties, children trying to help children, secrets that can’t be kept, siblings that care about each other, and friends that show their compassion with generosity.

Maddi’s Fridge is a wonderful book for Kids.  It teaches children to share, to be companionate, and to know that sometimes it’s not good to keep a secret.  While this delightful little book brings hunger awareness to children, its pages are also filled with fun.

The Author Lois Brandt, has shown children that they too can help those in need.  The illustrations by Vin Vogel are filled with whimsy that are certain to delight young readers.

The life lessons in this book will live on in a child’s mind. I give it five bags of goodies for great content.
