Saturday Morning For Kids #BookReviews

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. If you love children’s books, or have a favourite from your childhood, join us in introducing them to a new generation of readers.

This week I am reviewing a few books that I read to one or all of my grandchildren over the last few weeks. I have added their comments or reactions where possible. All of these books were provided through Netgalley upon request. The ratings and opinions shared are our own.

These all have to do with creativity, accepting your gifts, family and love. I enjoyed them all and for the most part so did they. Scroll down to see reviews and reactions from the kids.

Children’s Non-Fiction #BookReviews, Little People, Big Dreams series

Today I am sharing three books from the Little People, Big Dreams series. I love this series and recommend as often as I can. I can’t praise this series enough. If you have the opportunity, check out these books, or better yet, check out the series and recommend it to your local library or school library or buy them for the children in your life. I read these three books with my seven year old grandson. He enjoyed them and kept asking if these were stories or real people. He was quite impressed with what they had done. He was upset when we read about Malala being shot, but after some discussion, we were able to move on. He was also very interested in the actual photos at the back of the books, but didn’t really care about the timeline, he is only seven. I received these books from the publisher upon request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.
