Saturday Morning for Kids: Little People, Big Dreams, 5 Mini-Reviews

The exceptional Little People, BIG DREAMS series prides itself on providing child-friendly biographies of renowned public figures and celebrities. All of these books share the childhoods of the person being highlighted, as well as the dreams they has as children. An interesting thing about this series is that they are all illustrated by different illustrators, yet they all have the same quirky feel with emotions showing in the faces. I really enjoy this series and love sharing them with my grandson. He enjoys learning about the different people, especially if he can identify with them in some way. This series is one that I recommend to parents, teachers, schools and public libraries. They are excellent to use as a starting point to teach about biographies, as well as to instill an interest in learning about famous people who were once children, just like them. Each of these books was provided to me by the publisher upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.

National Poetry Month – Songs of Heartstrings by Miriam Hurdle #BookReview @mhurdle112

I took several weeks to enjoy this book of poems. I enjoyed them and wanted time to ponder them, not rush through them. Miriam Hurdle is a blogger I follow who shares wonderful photographs, poetry and snapshots into her life among other things. I enjoy her blog and wanted to read her book. I was not disappointed.
