Goodreads Review

Harry Saves The Ocean: Teaching children about sea pollution and recycling. (Harry The Happy Mouse Book 5)Harry Saves The Ocean: Teaching children about sea pollution and recycling. by N.G. K.

My rating 4 paws plus

Another A~MAZ~ING bright colourful rhyming read for children, featuring our favourite character Harry the Happy Mouse. We absolutely love this book series. However, this book is truly special bringing to light the problem of plastics in our oceans and along the coastlines. The opening lines simply entice you in as if swept along on a gentle sea breeze.

On the crest of a wave and the wisp of the wind,
Harry the Happy Mouse was packing his things.

The illustrations by Janelle Dimmett are as bright and beautiful as ever. Children of all ages are going to love this wonderful educational read.

Very Highly Recommended.

Children’s Book ‘This is a Dog’

#ChildrensBook for #DogLovers check it out 🙂

Red Reading Hub - Jillrbennett's Reviews of Children's Books

This is a Dog
Ross Collins
Nosy Crow

There’s no getting away from it, Ross Collins’ intended My First Animal Book’ has been infiltrated, indeed taken over, by a mischievous canine that has no intention of doing anything but ensuring he’s the only animal that matters herein. He’s even had the audacity to substitute his name for Ross’s on the title page.

Make no bones about it, his actions are anything but well received by the other animals – note their expressions. And having annoyed the monkey, astonished the rabbit and alarmed the squirrel, he’s somehow managed to get his paws on a black crayon to edit (actually mess around with) the text.

Children will absolutely love what he does beside the giraffe and giggle at his attempts at emulating a pachyderm in front of the elephant.

He almost gets his cum uppance with bear but then comes gorilla where…

Young Ebenezer – Confronts the School Bully

First of all Happy Weekend Book Lovers, sorry we have not been around for a while would you believe we are actually writing. It’s true, I kid you not. So during #CampNaNoWriMo we worked on our poetry book Butterflies & Blue Skies ~ Poetry & Prose 2′ but we got off course and picked up on our #Selkie Folklore story.

Today however, we went off on a completely different tangent, but it was very productive. We actually completed the second book in the Young Ebenezer series. This time Young Ebenezer gets to go ‘Trick or Treating’ for the very first time. Sadly Jacob Marley the school bully is out stealing all the candy from the other boys and girls.

With the help of Grandfather Time and Miss Ruby Heart (me of course) we hope to get Jacob to change his ways.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutley LOVE this little book series based on true events.

Once again a bright and very beautiful children’s picture book. The stunning illustrations by Rebecca Sharp really bring the story to life. A book to share with the whole family. This is Book 2 so I would highly recommend getting Book 1 ‘A Home for Emy’ to read first.

A Home For Emy by Chris Turnbull

Both very Highly recommended
