KID’S REVIEWS

By Lyda Whiting

 

I AM: WHY TWO LITTLE WORDS MEAN SO MUCH
Written by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer with Kristina Tracy, illustrated by Stacy Heller Budnick

We are one. “I am the voice that you hear when you are quiet and still. I am the little bird on your windowsill ...” We are together.

The renowned author offers children the gift of understanding that we are not separate from, but part of, God. Dr. Dyer now shares this most important concept from his book for adults, “Wishes Fulfilled,” with children.

Beautiful and colorful paintings fill the reader with delight as the gentle words flow over the pages. The writing is simple and lovely, and easy for a young reader to read on their own. You will want to share this gem together, often.

Highly recommended for ages 3 and up.

Published by Hay House Inc., this book is available at your local bookstore.


A BEE NAMED BEA AND OTHER POEMS
Written by Candace A. Dietz, illustrated by Virginia J. Rost

A bee named Bea just wants company, but everybody flees her. Until she meets another bee, and together they are happy as can be. William the vermilion chameleon can’t change colors -— until his friend shows him how to use colorful scarves to be any color he wants.

Children will have fun reading about charming, quirky animals like Bea. The characters deal with funny problems in a creative way, so each poem ends cheerfully. The lively poems are accompanied by whimsical watercolors that fill the pages with color.

This is a great book for reading aloud together, as well as for the beginning readers. The warm-hearted tone is just right for bedtime or any time together.

Recommended for ages 3 and up.

THE GIFT OF THE LADYBUG
Written by Carole M. Amber, illustrated by Evi Shelvia

Once there lived two horses who loved each other very much. They were very happy when they had a beautiful baby. They loved their boy Polkadot so much that they didn’t notice he was different from other baby horses. But the doctor told them their baby was not a horse at all — Polkadot was a ladybug. And ladybugs fly instead of gallop, eat bugs instead of hay, and live shorter lives than horses. The horses cried, but then they realized that their baby could never be a horse — he was a ladybug. So they celebrated Polkadot for who he was, and enjoyed the sweet time that he was with them.

This story of love and acceptance will help children and parents see their unique selves as magic just the way they are.

Recommended for ages 3 and up, and for parents everywhere.

TURTLES DON’T SURF
Written and illustrated by Jaimal Yogis

Kai the sea turtle wanted to surf. He couldn’t make it past the breakers, and the surfing dolphins laughed at him. His parents grounded him for trying. But Kai vowed to be the first surfing turtle. That night as

he slept, a dream octopus took him off through his window to a distant shore where turtles were surfing the waves. Once Kai saw them doing it, he tried again and he could do it too. He just needed to believe he could.

Then Kai noticed a dolphin trying to get past the breakers to surf. The other turtles were laughing at her and telling her “dolphins don’t surf.” Should Kai hang with his new friends, or help the dolphin?

This whimsical book has rhyming text, child-like illustrations, and a gentle message. Young readers will enjoy Kai’s adventures.

For ages 3 and up.
