Bunster Review

Bunster, an Easter Story is a sweet children’s board book written and illustrated by Christine Hwang Panzer about a bunny and his duckling buddies during Easter season, emphasizing the importance of friendship.

The narrative is ideal for young children because it is neither too long nor too short, and it will hold their attention. In addition, the illustrations are sweet and appealing, showing off this first-time author’s fondness for rabbits.

I feel the plot development is more about friendship than Easter. However, I enjoyed this because our family doesn’t put a lot of importance on Easter egg hunts, so it was a perfect fit for us.

The book is well-made and can easily endure the tiny one’s “grabby” fingers. No torn pages!! The colors are relaxing and mellow, and the drawings are sweet and whimsical.

For toddlers, the vocabulary may be too advanced. Nonetheless, it can serve as an introduction to more challenging words for them, as well as a fun way for older children to appreciate the story, too.

The story uses a cursive typeface, which may be difficult for new and young readers to understand. It mixes in with the book’s beauty, but it could be a big drawback.

The book is marketed to 0–3-year-olds, and they will be delighted and amused by the tale and illustrations. Bunster, An Easter Story would make a great present for the smaller children in your life.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from iRead Book Tours. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

Friday Flashback: I Don’t Want to Eat Bugs (Lisbon’s Misadventures Book 1) by Rachel Branton (Author), Tim Petersen (Illustrator)

I Don’t Want to Eat Bugs is a cute book about a little girl, named Lisbon, who is so hungry she doesn’t want to wait for dinner.

Lisbon goes on a fun adventure looking for food when she encounters several animals that offer to share their yummy food, except yuck, it is not yummy! The animals offer a wide variety of different foods they like, from bugs to dog food, but, of course, Lisbon isn’t interested!

The story is an effective way for children to learn about animals’ food and an appreciation for their own food. The illustrations are bright and colorful, and they are creative enough to capture a child’s imagination. The characters are charming and fit the story perfectly, too. I love her little stuffed frog!

One very subtle lesson is the importance of sharing, even if it is bugs!!

I Don’t Want to Eat Bugs is a great book to read to young children who are not yet able to read and also for those who have learned or are learning to read.

This entertaining book is currently free on Amazon. (Not an affiliate.) As always, be sure to check the price before purchasing, in case there are changes in pricing.

Publisher’s Summary

Bugs are for the birds!

Lisbon is hungry and it’s hard to wait for dinner. When her animal friends try to help her find something tasty to eat, the real the problems begin! Join Lisbon on her funny misadventures.

Each beautiful illustration is designed to inspire the imaginations of children. An activity page at the end of the book allows for more fun as they search for special
items in the illustrations.

This version of I Don’t Want to Eat Bugs has been designed specifically for eBook with a fixed layout and larger text for easy reading. While this is a great read-aloud book for parents, teachers, and other adults to share with children, we have chosen fonts that are similar to the way children form letters for easy recognition as they begin to read on their own. The print book is also available in 8.5” x 11” format.

Author’s Note:

I Don’t Want to Eat Bugs was written for my daughter, who was two when I wrote this story and didn’t like salad, but now she’s four and a half and loves it—if I give her plenty of salad dressing! (But don’t worry—this isn’t a book about eating salad.) Of course birds, cats, and dogs have a very different idea of what’s good to eat, but through this fun adventure, Lisbon learns there is also food meant just for her—and it’s good, especially compared with all the offerings from her animal friends.

My daughter and I privately call this book the “Ice Cream Story” (she LOVES ice cream so there had to be ice cream involved), and now whenever something funny happens, she says, “We should write a new ice cream story about that.”

And we have! I Don’t Want to Eat Bugs is the first book in a series called Lisbon’s Misadventures. Book 2, I Don’t Want to Have Hot Toes, is now available!

Recommended ages: 2-7.

Friday Flashback: Bedtime, Little Bear by John Lancer

This adorable book is currently free on Amazon!

Publisher’s Summary

Little Bear doesn’t want to go to bed. He wants to keep playing. When Mother Bear and the forest animals call to him, he pretends he can’t hear. But the sun is sinking and soon it will be dark. Will Little Bear find his way home before nighttime comes? Find out in this magical, moonlit, bedtime story.

Bedtime, Little Bear is an endearing story about loveable Little Bear, who, like all children, does not want to go to bed!

Little Bear is having so much fun playing!  Several times he thinks he hears his mother calling him. But he convinces himself that he doesn’t really hear her, even though his little friends tell him they also heard her.

The story’s pictures of Little Bear and all the woodland creatures, plus the changing of time from twilight and dusk to nightfall, are charming, delightful and enchanting. I so enjoyed the fanciful, creative and whimsical illustrations; they make you want to join Little Bear in his playtime, and then give him a huge goodnight hug, too!

Bedtime, Little Bear perhaps could have been better if Little Bear received some type of consequence for his misbehavior. However, I feel it might detract from the story. There is no age recommendation that I could find, but I am guessing it is perfect for the 1 to 5 age frames. At this age, children are more involved in the story’s plot than concerned with the lack of discipline. Some precocious children may question why nothing happened; in which case, this story turns into a good learning experience.

Cindi’s Chocolate Valentine by Beverley Reichman and Illustrator, Janine Rhodes on Tour with iRead Book Tours

Book Details:

Book Title:  Cindi’s Chocolate Valentine by Beverley Reichman
Category: Children’s Fiction (Ages 3-7),  36 pages
Genre: Children’s Book
Publisher:  Book Baby 
Release date:  January, 2022
Tour dates: February 1 to February 14, 2022
Content Rating:  Rated G. Suitable for everyone

 
Book Description:

​Cindi isn’t sure about this holiday called Valentine’s Day, but after her people pair dress her up like a flamingo and take her for a walk in front of her friends, and her handsome new neighbor dog, Chip, she doesn’t like it at all! She and her BFF, Pitty Pat, have been watching Chip ever since he moved next door. She wants to meet him, but not like this! Have you ever changed your mind about something? In this outrageously funny story, meet some of Cindi’s fur-friends and find out if she changes her mind about Valentine’s Day.

Cindi’s Chocolate Valentine is an especially SPECIAL book because it features 17 pets that were chosen as winners in the Cindi Features a New Friend contest last summer.  As you can imagine, their ‘people families’ are beyond excited about their pets being part of the story.  They had over 750 pets, including dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, hedgehogs, and even a chicken, goat, donkey and monkey enter the contest!

Cindi’s Chocolate Valentine was a hit with my almost 2-year-old granddaughter and me. She was particularly taken with it because she had been learning about Valentine’s Day and ” helping” decorate the house.

The story centers around Cindi, a dog, and her friend Pitty Pat, a cat. They are quite outraged when they are dressed up for Valentine’s Day, especially since they might run into Chip, Cindi’s new neighbor. Oh, the embarrassment!

Beverley Reichman did an excellent job of mixing a variety of animals into the story. The part I really appreciated was the illustrator’s depiction of the different dogs. Dogs of all kinds, shapes and sizes were there, including those in doggie wheelchairs and one with two distinctly different colored eyes. What a lovely method to illustrate and introduce physical differences and impairments to children.

Cindi’s Chocolate Valentine is a pleasant, sweet story with appealing, innovative pictures that will be pleasing to both children and adults.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

About Book

The enraged elephant is charging at you! Quick! To stop the elephant, use the remote control.

This interactive book will let your child develop a keen interest in reading. If you’re looking for a good bedtime story, a story to keep them entertained on the road, or simply an opportunity to bond with your child, look no further than this book.

Elephants are among the most intelligent animals on the planet. This one, on the other hand, is angry. Unlike the rest of its kind, this elephant will go to any length to be left alone. Join the adventure to figure out why the elephant is upset and how to calm it down. But it won’t be easy! Our elephant is not easily satisfied. ‘Make a Wish for an Elephant’ is a book about listening, suitable for children aged 3 to 7. The more we listen to one another, the more we will understand one another. Every parent and child must read Make a Wish for an Elephant’

Here’s what you’ll find in this book:

  • Fascinating and flat-out fun interactive pages that your kids are guaranteed to enjoy

Apple Sophia Lim’s book Make a Wish for an Elephant explores the sequence of events that can happen when you don’t get exactly what you wish for. You can ask for an elephant to play with, expecting a friendly one, but instead get an angry, charging elephant!

The storyline is interactive, with cute little recommendations for children to follow, while also teaching kids how to listen to others. Furthermore, the children’s imagination is triggered, which fosters their ingenuity, inquisitiveness, and activity.

Make a Wish for an Elephant is a treat to read for adults and children alike. Moch. Fajar Shobaru’s illustrations are charmingly attractive and beautiful. The elephant appears to be benign and adorable, but watch out: he has a temper! With their vivid hues, the appealing images are attention-grabbing and striking, and will enchant young children.

The book is the third in the Make a Wish for a series, which is aimed at children aged three to seven years old. However, I feel that younger little ones would appreciate it as well. It is also possible to read the tale as a standalone.

I received an advance review copy for free from BookSirens, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

The Three Little Monsters and the Cranky King: A Story About Friendship, Kindness and Accepting Differences for Kids 4-8 by Teydon Rae.

Help children to discover the importance of being kind, accepting others and making new friends!

The Three Little Monsters

Kitty Counts Her Blessings by Kat E. Erikson and Illustrated by Roksolana Panchyshyn

About the Book

“ONE blessing, TWO, THREE blessings, FOUR—Let me keep counting and go seek some more!”

Children are experts at finding delight everywhere they look, even when life gets a little dark. Kitty Counts Her Blessings celebrates that gift—and shares a lesson in counting besides.

As the story begins, Kitty has no trouble counting her blessings, from the sun on her nose to the zing of the bees. But when rain threatens to spoil her fun, finding blessings isn’t so easy. Then she remembers learning hide-and-seek, and suddenly joys are around every corner—and before long, so is her boy, ready to play and count along with her.

This cheerful, rhyming book invites children and the grownups who love them to seek the blessings in their own world.

How many blessings can your little one count today?

Kitty begins her day by waking up and going about her daily routine. She decides to count her blessings today, while she ponders how many blessings she will receive. As the day progresses, Kitty is alternatively excited and dismayed by events as circumstances foil some of her plans.

Kitty Counts Her Blesses by Kat E. Erikson fittingly shows how certain things that seem one way may actually be another as Kitty learns to count her blessings. The story has valuable lessons for children, particularly those who view everything in either black or white. In addition, while Kitty is counting her blessings, children will learn how to count.

The sweet illustrations by Roksolana Panchyshyn will thrill young children. The kitten is loveable and cute. Kitty’s owner is nice, engaging and appealing, and the other animals in the story are charming.

Kitty Counts Her Blessings is aimed at children ages three to seven, but I believe it will also appeal to children of a younger age as well.

I received an advance review copy of Kitty Counts Her Blessings for free from BookSirens, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

***** 2021 Family Choice Award Winner *****

Book Description:

During the day, the Miller family’s Christmas tree stands tall in their living room, sparkling with lights and ornaments. Little does the family know that their Christmas tree is anything but ordinary. Each evening, the magic of Christmas brings their tree to life—much to the delight of Hannah and William Miller. Follow along as Hannah and William experience the magic of Christmas in a whole new way.

This was a delightful Christmas tale. It reminded me of one of our daughters when she was younger. Her dolls and stuffed animals, she believed, came to life at night! This story, as well as the creativity it would have inspired in her, would have been ideal for her.

The Living Christmas Tree, by Kristin Sponaugle, introduces us to Hannah and William, siblings who are eagerly awaiting Christmas. One night, Hannah discovers that the decorations come to life after everyone has gone to bed. Unable to keep the secret, she shares it with her brother, and the two of them have such merriment and entertainment night after night during the Christmas season.

Agus Prajogo’s illustrations are vibrant and colorful, with a hint of whimsy and fantasy that is sure to enchant young children.

The book is recommended and appropriate for ages 3 to 7, and it is an excellent story for beginning readers.

Popper is a little woodpecker who realizes that he has outgrown his family home, as his bed is now too small for him. He sets out on a mission to find a new home with the help of his buddies.

IL Ritchie’s Popper Finds a New Home is a delightful story about a young woodpecker. The book is charming, and children will enjoy the subject. My not quite two-year-old granddaughter adored it and asked questions about the numerous home prospects Popper visited. All of Popper’s friends’ proposals delighted her as well. She enthused over the affable Filbert’s suggestion.

I enjoyed how each of Popper’s friends offered to assist him by describing where woodpeckers don’t live and encouraging him to look elsewhere. I also admired Popper’s parents’ support and approval for him in his quest.

Older children will enjoy the story as well and will take away many positive messages about growing up, friendships and perseverance, along with the concept of diverse kinds of homes.

The graphics are so clever, cute and delightful. Yulia Pots, the illustrator, created quirky, inventive illustrations throughout the book. The pictures of birds, animals and insects are slightly exaggerated, giving them an appealing quality that children will enjoy.

The narrative is aimed at children aged 3 to 7. It will, however, pique the curiosity of both younger and older children. The text is easy to read and occupies the entire page, which will stimulate the interest of beginning and more advanced readers. At the same time, the illustrations will enchant and amuse fledgling and non-readers alike.

Thank you to iRead Book Tours. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

LULU the Tiger & The Missing Shoes: A Children’s Book about Friendship, Sharing and Social Skills (LULU’s Adventures) by Ann Lee, Illustrated by Budi Hebat

About the Book

The shoes of her friends continue to disappear. Who could have taken them, and for what reason? Help LULU & friends solve the mystery!

Lulu the Tiger wants to go for a walk. 

But oh no, her shoes are suddenly gone. 

Where could they be? 

Perhaps Hal Hippo has seen them? 

Or maybe Gregory Giraffe and Eddy Elephant know where they are?

All of the friends’ shoes are missing!

Will they find the culprit behind the missing shoes?

The shoes of Lulu the Tiger are missing. No way! When she goes to her friends’ houses to see if she left them there, she realizes that their shoes have also vanished! Whatever happened to everyone’s shoes?

The story, LULU the Tiger and the Missing Shoes, written by Ann Lee and illustrated by Budi Hebat, is an engaging story. Lulu and her friends embark on a quest to find out what happened to their shoes, using rhyme and music. The story’s rhythm, combined with the catchy song lyrics, is appealing, and it engages young children. The inventive story of animals losing their shoes and then discovering where they found them is amusing.

The richly detailed and inventive pictures aptly illustrate the animals, their footwear and their journey to discover them. Children will be delighted by the illustrations as they read the book.

Lulu and her friends have a great time while learning a lot of valuable life lessons. Children learn to share, cherish friendship, and forgive as a result of the lessons they learn.

Lulu the Tiger stories are fast becoming my granddaughter’s most requested stories.
