I-tell-my-own-story-bookI Tell My Own Story is colorful, fun and imaginative and I highly recommend it. Instead of telling a story, the author invites children to use their imagination and answer questions about each illustration.

If I still had little ones, I would have this in my stack of fun things to do on a rainy day, along with playdough, puzzles and games. Kids will absolutely love the illustrations and they’ll gain confidence by being put in charge of the story. My guess is, they will want to tell it over and over and you will have a blast listening to the adventures they dream up.

I have to give this little book a great big two thumbs up!! (Posted on Amazon.)

The House That Wanted a Family, by Susan Spence Daniel, is a very quiet and sweet book for children. The story, told from the perspective of an empty, lonely house teaches a bit of perseverance and patience while demonstrating the one ingredient that truly makes any house a home: family.

When I read this book, the first thing that came to mind was a coffee break. I know that makes no sense, but the story itself is peaceful. The illustrations are colorful and interesting, yet soft.  Children experience stress and anxiety, and like anyone else, sometimes they just need a break. Get your child and curl up with this story and it will feel like a nice, quiet coffee break.  

Art for children that inspires peace and tranquility while promoting the importance of family…I think it deserves at least four stars and a place on every child’s book shelf.
