Jordan & Justine’s Weekend Adventures® for Wildlife Alliance brings children right into the center of animal life at a wildlife conservation center. Jordan and Justine use their magical powers to explore the world of dolphins, to find out how laws can protect wildlife, and to learn what it means to be a mammal. Perfect for children ages 7 to 9. By Tanille Edwards and Latoya Edwards

2016 is the year to take a stand for Wildlife!

There are animals that need our help. Author, Tanille Edwards and publishing company, Fire Flies Entertainment have partnered with the national organization Wildlife Alliance to share 50% of the proceeds from each Wildlife book from the Jordan & Justine’s Weekend Adventures series sold to the organization.

In Jordan & Justine’s Weekend Adventures for Wildlife Alliance, Jordan, Justine, Ling and Raj go to the wildlife conservation center. There they learn about wildlife, how to protect animals, and why it’s important to have centers like this. In part two, they learn more about marine biology and animals living in the water.

The texts are a little on the long side for really young kids, but when a parent reads it to them, they should be fine. The illustrations are very cute, and have a distinct style that I thought worked well. The book is also very informative – and not just for kids. I learned a thing or two too hwile reading it. Jordan and Justine are two likeable characters, kids, and I’m sure kids will easily relate to them.

Mini-Reviews: Oscar and the Amazing Gravity Repellent, The Accident Season, Mother of Demons

minireview

Time for some mini-reviews! What are mini-reviews, you ask? As the title suggests, these are short reviews, consisting of one paragraph tops, about a book. It’s a way to catch up on the books I’ve read a while ago, but never got around to reviewing.

Oscar and the Amazing Gravity Repellent

Tite: Oscar and the Amazing Gravity Repellent

Author: Tina L. Peterson

Genre: Middle Grade, Science-Fiction

Rating: 4 stars

Purchase: Amazon

Oscar Schmidt is a klutz and gravity is his nemesis – it pulls him down, trips him up, and helps the neighborhood bullies make his life all-around awful. But when Oscar finds an abandoned train caboose one day after school, everything changes. Inside, he discovers a magical potion: Dr. Oopsie’s Amazing Gravity Repellent. Along with his best friend, Asha, Oscar learns what happens when he defies the laws of nature. But when the caboose comes under attack from a group of bullies, Oscar’s reaction puts his worst enemy in serious danger. Oscar must face the consequences of his actions, figure out right from wrong, and learn how to stand up for himself. A heartwarming mix of sweet humor and whimsical fantasy, young readers will immediately fall in love with Oscar’s tale and easily relate to the real-life issues at the story’s core.

For ages 8-10.

*A heartwarming mix of whimsical fantasy and real-life issues*Deals with bullying in a thoughtful and realistic way*Fun and sweet humor that young readers will love

Review: I’m a klutz, so I could easily relate to Oscar Schmidt – he’s a klutz too. He’s also being bullied, but that changes when he finds an abandoned train caboose one day after school. Filled with whimsical, fun elements, humor, and adventure, this is a great read for middle graders (and the occasional adult, haha).

The Accident Season

Title: The Accident Season

Author:Moira Fowley-Doyle

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal

Rating: 4,5 stars

Purchase: Amazon

It’s the accident season, the same time every year. Bones break, skin tears, bruises bloom.

The accident season has been part of seventeen-year-old Cara’s life for as long as she can remember. Towards the end of October, foreshadowed by the deaths of many relatives before them, Cara’s family becomes inexplicably accident-prone. They banish knives to locked drawers, cover sharp table edges with padding, switch off electrical items – but injuries follow wherever they go, and the accident season becomes an ever-growing obsession and fear.

But why are they so cursed? And how can they break free?

Review: I loved, loved, LOVED this book. Lyrical, haunting prose, amazing characters that all seem to hide something, a sizzling romance, and a creepy, foreboding sense. It had all the elements I love about YA paranormal wrapped into one book.

Mother of Demons

Title: Mother of Demons

Author: Maynard Sims

Genre: Horror

Rating: 3,5 stars

Purchase: Amazon

The hunt is on! Alice Logan has gone missing, and Harry Bailey and Department 18 have been called to help find her. The main suspect is Anton Markos, a satanic cult leader who has a predilection for young women like Alice. Members of Markos’s cult start turning up dead—shredded by what seems to be a wild animal. Is there a madman within the cult? Or is it something far more horrible?Can Department 18 discover the impossible truth and end the spree of murder, insanity and carnage? Or will they become the prey?
Review: The story was all right, and had a few unexpected twists, but the final confrontation ended too easily. The characters were all right, but some were hard to connect to, or grasp why they did certain things. Top-notch writing, though, and definitely an entertaining book.

Book Review: Mimi’s Adventures in Baking Gingerbread Men

Embark on a baking adventure with Mimi where she will measure, mix, and bake her way to the perfect batch of gingerbread men. If Mimi can do it, so can you!
Mimi’s Adventures in Baking Gingerbread Men is the third book in the Mimi’s Adventures in Baking series.

 Mimi’s Adventures in Baking Gingerbread Men is the third book in the Mimi’s Adventures in Baking series. I only read this one, but you don’t need to have read the previous books to fully understand the story. Since it’s snowing outside, Mimi and Danny go to Nonni’s house. Nonni wants to try baking gingerbread men, and enlists the help of the two kids. The best part is when they can decorate the gingerbread men. At the end of the book, the recipe is included.

I loved the illustrations. They’re simply adorable, and the pastel colors work great. I checked out the covers for the other books in the series too, and I love how consistent their look is. The writing was good too, and appropriate for kids. They’ll understand all the words when parents read it to them, and older ones can read it on their own.

A word of warning though: you might end up baking gingerbread men after reading this!

Author Bio

Chef Alyssa has been baking since she was a little girl in her grandmother’s kitchen. Since graduating from the Culinary Institute of America she has worked for famous chefs and elite companies such as the Ritz Carlton, Tom Colicchio, Norman Van Aken and Gray Kunz. She currently is the Executive Chef at Riverwalk Bar and Grill on the Historic nook of New York City, Roosevelt Island. She also has a boutique custom cake company called AllyCakesNYC where she creates cakes to appease the imagination. Through her journey of baking she developed Mimi, her very own miniature version of herself.

As a child she loved baking and everything that came with it. As an adult and food lover she realized there was something missing when she frequented bookstores. A interactive children’s cookbook. And we are not talking about a boring old cookbook for kids with lots and lots of recipes, and some pictures. Children these days have just as much interest in the kitchen as there parents do, but the ordinary cookbook is just not going to cut it. She created Mimi’s Adventures in Baking  to give children and adults a way to get into the kitchen and allow the child to become the chef and the adult the assistant. Each book has one recipe and an interactive storyline the child can read, and at the end go into the kitchen and do what Mimi did!  And for the “non-baking” parent, these elite pastry chef recipes are tested and ready for even the most inexperienced baker! Impress other moms with Mimi’s creations!

Mimi’s Adventures in Baking
will also teach children how to measure, mix and bake their way through the kitchen while also giving safety tips along the way. No more boring cookbooks! Now there is a fun, exciting and educational way to learn how to bake!

Author Bio

Tammy Cortez
Tammy Cortez is a Fremont, California native now living in Georgetown, Texas. She grew up living in suburbia but spent every weekend at their horse ranch 30 minutes away in the country. Tammy competed in team penning events, winning many of them, including 1st place in a larger event resulting in her first silver belt buckle, still one of her prized possessions.
She has been married for 25 years to a guy she met in the 7th grade and remained friends with through middle and high school. They have two daughters, 24 & 12.Tammy spent the first two years of her marriage as a Navy wife having lived at the well known and much loved NAS Miramar (now MCAS Miramar) and then NAS Lemore, both in California.
Outside of enjoying time with her family, Tammy loves repurposing old furniture and other fun finds as well as painting. Not painting on canvas, though she would love to give that a whirl, but home interior painting. “It’s the one thing everyone dreads, but I find almost therapeutic,” she says.
She found, or re-found, her passion for writing when she decided to write a story intended as a gift for her youngest daughter. After discussing it with a couple of friends that had written books, she was convinced she should publish it. “When I started writing I found something I realize now, I had lost. Back in high school I had an English teacher, I wish I could remember her name, but she had us do this great writing exercise. We would close our eyes and lay our heads down on our desks. She would then read a few sentences that were descriptive of a location and situation, and then ask us to raise our heads and write what we saw. We would go through this process a few times and the end result was a story. When many of my classmates had 2 – 3 pages I had 6+ pages. I could write and write and write. Then I stopped. I guess it was so non-traditional I just never even considered it as a career. I write very much in the same manner now. Very off the cuff.”
The move to Texas took Tammy away from her Business Analyst job in Information Technology at an energy laboratory in California. This move opened up a door that never would have been considered before. Tammy found Waldorf Publishing through a friend and is working on a series of children’s books as well as some middle grade books. She is now dedicated to writing when she isn’t volunteering at her daughter’s school or spending time with family and friends.

Age Group: Children

Rating: 4 stars

Purchase: Amazon

Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

Do you want to raise a child that is WISE?

As adults we are charged with protecting our most precious commodity… our children. The greatest protection we could offer them is to provide them with guidance on attaining wisdom. Within the pages of this book you will read the pearls of wisdom offered in God’s word. As well as learn tools that you and your child can apply to everyday life. May Pearls and Tools of Wisdom for Parents and Children be a blessing for you and your family as it provides guidance on the importance of listening, praying, learning, being positive, being good, working, and persevering.

In Pearls and Tools of Wisdom for Parents & Children, child psychologist Donna Gardner shows parents how to teach their children certain biblical values, accompanied by cute illustrations. For example, the first chapter focuses on listening, and it explains what the bible and God say about listening. Next, Dr. Donna gives a lesson about listening to the parents and then to the children. She also proposes an activity, has some advices specifically for girls and boys, and then includes a biblical verse about wisdom. The chapter ends with a page for notes that parents and kids can fill in.

The second chapter focuses on praying, and uses the same formula. The book goes on like that, providing wisdom and lessons for parents and kid while showcasing the lessons with cute illustrations using lots of colors.

It’s an interesting book, one that would be great for parents and kids to read together.
