Never After – Where Real Life and Fairytales Collide #BookReview #MiddleGrades #Audiobook @MacmillanAudio @MelissadelaCruz

The Chronicles of Never After

I just read and listened to the first two books in the Chronicles of Never After series and enjoyed them. They are geared to middle grades, but can be read by anyone who enjoys a reimagined fairytale, but the plots and language are simpler than others I have read. I was a huge fan of the television series, Once Upon a Time and thought this series had some similarities, especially finding out the stories were not always true, or there was more to them than what was in the book. Scroll down to check out my reviews.

Saturday Evening For Kids: Where Snow Angels Go #BookReview #Audiobook

Where Snow Angels Go is such a beautiful book. I originally listened to the audiobook, but wanted to see the illustrations. I couldn’t find a copy at my library, but went out to youtube. There were a few videos of people reading the book as well as a clip of Maggie O’Farrell reading a few pages. I was able to see the illustrations and they are absolutely gorgeous. I will be purchasing a copy of this one for my grandchildren.

Three MG/YA Books: Enola Holmes and the Black Barouche, Emily Windsnap and the Tides of Time & The Very, Very Far North #BookReview

These three books are all geared to different ages. Enola Holmes is one for MG readers into YA, the Emily Windsnap series is great for MG readers and The Very, Very Far North is a good read aloud for older primary students, but if read independently, it would work for middle grade children. At one time, I received all of these books from the publisher. The rating and opinions shared are my own.

Saturday Morning For Kids: Non-Fiction Picture Books #BookReview #PictureBooks

This meme was started by Rae Longest at Powerful Women Readers. As I am a grandmother, who loves to read to her grandchildren, a mother who loved to read to and with her children, and a retired teacher librarian, this meme really attracted me.

This week, I am highlighting four nonfiction picture books, two from the Profession Series for children and two from the Little People, Big Dreams series. Both series are geared to primary students and they are well done. I recommend both of these series to parents, teachers, schools and public libraries. Each of these books was provided to me by the publisher upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.

My youngest grandson comes over and spends one day a week with grandma. We play, laugh and of course read and look at books. Here are a few that I read to him over the last few weeks.

Saturday Evening For Kids: Picture Books to read with and to your young ones #BookReviews

So I put this post together yesterday, but just realized that I didn’t publish it. Whoops.

Over the last month or so, I have read many, many, many books with my grandchildren. This group are ones that I read with my grandson (8 years old) and occasionally his sister (5 years old). I have included their thoughts, comments and reactions when they fit. All of these books were provided by the publisher at one time. All ratings and opinions shared are our own.
