Fly, Fly Again ~ STEAM Learning Book Tour ~ January 10, 2020

Posted on January 10, 2020 in 2020 Book Tours 2020 Valentine's Day Gift Guide kids Reviews

I really enjoyed reading Fly, Fly Again with my son, yesterday.  They have a STEAM class, at school, so this was perfect for us to read.  He’s 8, so he would read a page, then I would read a page.  It’s such a cute book, about trying again.  Jenny really dreams of flying, and she meets others along her journey, that help her out.

Fly, Fly Again is clever little story, perfect for children of all ages.  The Daughter, and Mom, duo, wrote this book together.   Fly, Fly Again introduces young readers to the concepts of flight – lift, gravity, thrust, and drag, along with pitch, roll, and yaw.  Jenny and Jude accompanied by their pets, Kitty and Hawk, work together to build a flying machine. It is a fun story of adventure, teamwork, and perseverance that begins to lay a foundation for aerodynamics in an adorable picture book format.

Duck and Hippo Give Thanks Book Tour Stop

Posted on November 21, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Duck and Hippo Give Thanks is a great book, and my 7 year old loves it.  With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought this would be the perfect book for bedtime, last night.  Jacob listened to the tale, and really got it.  I was so excited when he started asking me questions, about what I had just read.  Jonathan London is an excellent writer, and he got this book perfectly right!

Duck and Hippo Give Thanks has a lot of illustrations by Andrew Joyner, and they are so colorful, and made Jacob really look twice, we discussed the pictures, as well.  He really enjoyed the book, and asked if we could read it again tonight.  I told him, “Of course, but this time you will read it to Mommy”, and he agreed.  I’m trying to help him read, so what better way, than to have him read this wonderful book to me?  I can’t wait, to be honest!

Duck and Hippo are thankful for good friends!

It’s the day before Thanksgiving, and Hippo has his heart set on having a good old-fashioned feast with Duck and their friends. Together, Duck and Hippo go shopping for food and invite Turtle, Elephant, and Pig to share the special day with them. Then they get everything ready. But while Hippo goes to bed dreaming of his good old-fashioned Thanksgiving, Duck is busy making her own plans. There’s going to be a BIG surprise—one that will remind Hippo of all he has to be thankful for. Join Duck and Hippo for a memorable celebration!
