Review: Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends

Posted on September 1, 2020 in 2020 Fall Gift Guide

I love that Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends, is the second book in this series.  We did a review on the first book, Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home, as well.  Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends, is a dear book.  I read it to my little one, and he loved it.  Also, my daughter is a teacher, so this will be added to her room’s library.  She’s about to start the new year, in a few short weeks, and this will be a delight to the little ones, I’m sure.

Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends is written by Susan Marie, the owner of Miss Olive.  You really should get this book, and read it, I have a new perspective towards all furever friends now.

Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends continues the story of a little Italian Greyhound with three legs who is adopted by a loving family in the award-winning first book in the series, Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home. In Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends, Miss Olive learns that it’s her birthday and that her parents have planned a special celebration which will include treats, presents and friends. Her party is nearly ruined when she runs into a couple of grouchy dogs at the park who proceed to bully the poor pup. She realizes that true friends will stick by her and won’t join in with taunts from bullies.

Miss Olive Finds Here Furever Friends is the second book, in the trilogy.  I can’t wait for the final book to be released.  I’m so excited.  You can learn more about Miss Olive, and Susan, by going to The Doggy Diva.  You will love this site, and find out how Miss Olive is doing.

Do your children know how awesome they are?  Mine know, because we reinforce it.  My 8 year old is truly a gift from God, as I lost 2 babies in 2005.  So, he is our miracle, our Awesome child.

Follow along, in this amazing book, with Grace and Zeal, who at first believe everything is good, then find out everything is awesome, through the inventor.  It truly is a fascinating book, and every child, who believes in God, should read it.  Our God is the most Awesome God.

It is a fun story of adventure, teamwork, and perseverance that begins to lay a foundation for aerodynamics in an adorable picture book format.

I Don’t Like To Eat Ants is a Great Book

Posted on October 22, 2019 in 2019 Fall Gift Guide

My 22 year old, daughter, read I Don’t Like To Eat Ants to her class just the other day.  The second graders loved it.  They had a discussion about the book, and really enjoyed hearing Sarah read it.  With just 29 pages, the lesson was a great one.  She said the kids were still talking about it today.

My 8 year old, son, loved the book too.  He has read it 3 times, over the last few weeks.  He says he can’t get enough of the Anteaters.  “Too cute!” he says.

“I don’t like to eat ants,” said Anteater One. “They don’t taste very good, and they tickle my tongue…”

Anteater One is one adventurous eater. He’ll try anything – a grilled cheese sandwich, a nice salad, or a chocolate cake – but he’s eaten his last ant. Anteater Two only wants ants to eat. Anteater Three has the perfect solution: a reservation at his world-famous Peanut Butter & Jelly Deli, where the anteaters can discuss the very important question of what to eat for lunch. Sabine Mielke’s beautiful, stylized illustrations accompany JTK Belle’s rhyming, laugh-out-loud text, in this charming, relatable, story with a timeless message about the importance of trying new things.
I Don’t Like To Eat Ants recommended age group is 2-6, but don’t tell my kids that.  They loved it!  If I can get them to read, that’s a bonus, and I Don’t Like To Eat Ants has made them enjoy reading.

Posted on September 11, 2019 in 2019 Fall Gift Guide

Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home is a true story, and a great book.  We enjoyed reading it together, my son, age 8, and I.  My daughter, age 22, then took it to school, for her class to read.  The class just loved the book. ” Miss Olive is so special,” one child exclaimed to my daughter.  And, she said, “Yes, Miss Olive is special!”

Miss Olive was a rescue pup, that Susan Marie took in.  Miss Olive is a great dog, and host of The Doggy Diva Show.  She’s also the author of “Diva Delights”, and “Miss Olive’s Favorite Things”.

Miss Olive is a tiny, rescued Italian Greyhound who was adopted from the Italian Greyhound Rescue Gulf Coast into her loving “forever” home in 2015.

Miss Olive Finds Her “forever” Home is the first book in the heartwarming and inspirational seris “The Doggy Diva Diaries”.  When we first meet Miss Olive, she is a sad and lonely little pup hoping to find a loving family and her “forever” home.  Wit the help of her magical fairy dog-mother “Sophia the Doggy Diva,” Miss Olive learns a valuable life lesson.  It doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside.  It’s the kindness and love you have on the inside that counts.  Your dreams really can come true!

Book Tour: Pirates Don’t Go To Kindergarten! By Lisa Robinson

Posted on August 7, 2019 in 2019 Book Tours

Pirates Don’t Go To Kindergarten! is a supreme book.  If you have a child who is afraid to go to the next level in school, this book is for you.  See Emma was in Preschool, and was afraid to move up to Kindergarten, but her Preschool teacher reassured her, and she went ahead.  It’s a fantastic book to read to your little ones, especially right before school starts.

My little one is going to 3rd grade, but we read this together, and he loved it.  My daughter is going into her last year of college, to be a teacher, and she can’t wait to add it to her books, for when she starts teaching.  She said, Pirates Don’t Go To Kindergarten! is a special book that I think the kids I get will love”.  I think she’s right.

Jacob is afraid of moving up, every year, because there’s change.  This book has helped him see that change can be good.  And, I really enjoyed reading it, with Jacob.

Pirates Don’t Go To Kindergarten! is very inexpensive, at only $6.99, and is a great asset for the new school year.  You will love it, and so will your little ones.

I can’t wait for Sarah to have her own classroom, and be able to read this book to her students.  It took the fear out of Jacob, for starting 3rd grade.  This really is a miracle worker.

There’s A Monkey In My Backpack!

Posted on July 18, 2019 in 2019 Summer Gift Guide

My 22 year old, daughter, who is a student, becoming a teacher, just finished reading There’s A Monkey In My Backpack! by Don M. Winn, and loved it.  She says she can’t wait to implement it, in the classroom, this Spring.  She’ll be student teaching her final semester, and she says it’ll be good for the kids she is teaching.

I love the book, and read it to my son, who is going into the Third Grade, just like in the book.  He really enjoyed reading it, as well.

I really can’t wait for Sarah to take it into the classroom, so the kids can hear this amazing story.  See, Anna has a friend, that’s a Monkey; or does she?  You will have to read the book to find out, I don’t want to give too much away.  It’s a very interesting story, and I understood it, as well as my kids did.  I get it, and I remember school, and having the same issues as Anna.

Anna has a problem! There’s a monkey who goes everywhere with her–even to school! He never leaves Anna alone. He makes so much trouble for her that she wonders if she will ever finish the third grade, but she learns that her monkey can give her some surprising help if she lets it.

Spiky has it right!

Posted on June 28, 2019 in 2019 Book Tours

I love the story, “Spiky“.  It’s so true, in today’s world.  Some people can be so ugly, on the inside, but you can turn beautiful.  My daughter, age 22, can’t wait to take Spiky to work, to read to the kids that she teaches.  She is studying to become a teacher, and in her last year of college, she is already teaching.  She loves this story, almost as much as I do.  Anyone can change, and this book is a perfect example.  It’s great to teach your child that ugly souls can become beautiful ones.  I used to have an ugly soul, but now my soul has turned beautiful, in my opinion.

Ilaria Guarducci  is a magnificent writer, who got this book, “Spiky”, 100% on track for today’s world.  I really love the story line, and you will have a chance to win this book, coming up.  But, you can also purchase it, at the link above or below, if you want to make sure to get a copy.  She has written 7 children’s books, and I hope to be able to purchase each and every one, for my daughter’s classroom.  That would be a great addition.
