Review for Let’s Have an Exciting Day at the Fairgrounds


4.0 out of 5 starsA cute book with a timely messageOctober 8, 2019Format: Kindle EditionVerified PurchaseI think, “Let’s Have an Exciting day at the Fairgrounds” is a cute book with colorful illustrations. It’s about a little boy named Jonas and his pony, Peter, who decide to take a trip to the fairgrounds. Some of their experiences are fun, but they encounter children who bully them. Jonas tries to please everyone after he and Peter are teased. But eventually, he finds another way to think about their experiences. It’s a good story, but I thought some of the vocabulary is too advanced for very young children.review by children’s author, Deanie Humphrys-Dunnecopyright 2019: Deanie Humphrys-D...

The Grumpy Owl review


5.0 out of 5 starsA cute story with a helpful messageNovember 6, 2019Format: PaperbackThe Grumpy Owl is a cute story about an owl who wakes up in a bad mood. He notices that other animals don’t say the things he expects. For example, the little turtle says “Woof” when he’s chatting with a bear. I think small children would enjoy this story and learn to accept people the way they are, even if they’re different than you might think. I recommend this story.Review by children’s author, Deanie Humphrys-Dunne copyright: 2019; Deanie Humphrys-DunneThe post The Grumpy Owl review appeared first on deaniehumphrysdunne.wordpress.com.Original link

Review for Shog’s Best Friends


An adorable, funny, book with a great message!September 8, 2019Format: Kindle EditionVerified PurchaseI loved “Shog’s Best Friends: Shog, Lilly, Frog and Piggie” It was great fun to read and the verses were adorable and funny. Shog was a stubborn dog who had a sign on his door saying only dogs were welcome. Pigs were to “pink and too fat”. He wouldn’t consider being friends with a cat and frogs would not be acceptable because, after all, they were green! Shog felt terribly lonely without any friends and he did what he could to keep them away. But something happened that changed everything, including Shog’s attitude. I highly recommend this book.Review by children’s author, Deanie Humphrys-Du...

Review for Arial the Chef

Another wonderful book by Mary NhinSeptember 18, 2019I really enjoyed Arial the Chef for many reasons. The illustrations are big, bright and engaging.
