I was first introduced to theMy Talking Pet App some years back by my wonderful friendDeb McEwan author and dog lover. It was so much fun to see her beloved rescue dog Sandy telling us all about the new book she features in ‘The Island Dog Squad’ it was a barrel of laughs. I simply had to download the app for my phone.
Now Miss Ruby Heart uses the app to tell us all about her mini book reviews and her friends have joined in to share a few jokes and funnies. We hope you enjoy them.
If you have any jokes drop them below in the comments, and we will see if one of Ruby’s talking animal friends can read it out for you. Don’t forget the pages are aimed at children and younger readers, or those simply young at heart. Clean jokes only please.
How to write children’s books? To write, edit and publish a children’s book you must choose an age range for your idea, create popular story characters and then illustrate your book. Children’s books can be self published or you can submit them to traditional kid’s book publishers.
Ten Little Dogs is a beautifully illustrated count-down book featuring ten utterly gorgeous puppies. We see them at play, enjoying a meal, and having a snooze. They are adventurous and inquisitive, mischievous and full of boundless energy. There are all sorts of breeds and Sam and I had lots of fun choosing our favourite pups.
As the book counts down from ten to one, it introduces the concept of one less. The clever use of rhyme and page turn will help children guess then learn which number comes next. Each page has a spot the difference element too as you look to see which dog is missing.
The book is lots of fun because of the puppies’ playful antics. We frequently see them getting into trouble: they are chased by bees, drenched by a hose and one even gets stuck between two trees.
I just discovered this wonderful Kickstarter Campaign for ‘Milk and Cookies’ by Emma Rosen a sweet picture book that explains breastfeeding in an accessible way for small children. What a unique idea.This beautiful book informs while leaving space for families to have their own conversations. It’s not just for families who are already comfortable talking about breastfeeding, it’s for any little one with questions.
