Review! Dom’s Thanksgiving Catch by Saeeda Ruffin-Daniels

21 Nov

domscatchDom’s Thanksgiving Catch

Written by Saeeda Ruffin-Daniels

Illustrated by Malena Bonilla

26 pages – ages 7+

Published by MISA Publishing on October 8, 2015

Synopsis- When Dom is at school, and his teacher starts asking about what they’re having for Thanksgiving, he gets embarrassed when he blurts out “Fish”. Dom’s father lost his job, so they can’t get a turkey or any other “normal” holiday food. To cover for his “blunder” Dom accidentally invites his teacher over for Thanksgiving dinner, and anyone in his class that wants to come. Now, Dom has a problem on his hands. His family usually doesn’t have enough to feed the three of them. What about their guests?

What I Thought- This was a sweet book. I liked that it deals with real problems that can occur to anybody, such as job loss, embarrassment, homelessness, etc. Dom is a nice kid, and you understand his problems. I found it cool that the fish multiplied, and am assuming it is referencing the Bible story of the fish multiplying but it doesn’t out right say it. It gives a nice message that anyone of any faith can relate to.  The illustrations are nice, and they show a diverse cast of characters. The book is not a picture book but an illustrated short story. I also like the message of service to others and helping in any way you can. I enjoyed this book – it’s a short story about serving others and having faith that all will work out.

I give this book five out of five bookworms!fivebooks

Perfect Picture Book Friday! Ninja Baby by David Zeltser

20 Nov

Susanna Leonard Hill has a feature on her blog called Perfect Picture Book Friday. It is a list of “perfect” picture books recommended by all sorts of people. I chose this book because I liked this different type of jealousy over a new sibling story.

ninjaNinja Baby
Written by David Zeltser
Illustrated by Diane Goode

32 pages – ages 3+
Published by Chronicle Books on November 3, 2015

Theme/Topic- New Sibling/Jealousy

Genre- Fiction

Opening and Synopsis- Opening: “When Nina was born, the doctor gently thumped her bottom to make sure she was breathing.

Nina karate chopped her right back.

Synopsis: From Goodreads- From the day she was born, Nina was a ninja baby. She obliterated her applesauce. She concealed herself at bath time. And she was training herself in advanced infiltration (of movie night). Nina wants to do everything by herself, until the day her parents bring home a Kung Fu Master (a baby brother). Now with a sibling, Nina will face the one thing she cannot do alone: be part of a family. With verve and humor, David Zeltser and Diane Goode tell the story of an unusually gifted child, and the family that is more than a match for her.

What I Thought- This was a fun book. I really liked how it applied the ninja (and Kung-Fu) activities to real life. Mr. Zeltser has created a great story, and the illustrations are awesome for it! They have little details that make it pretty cool. I really like the feeling of the story and I like how Nina reacts to her new Kung Fu Master baby brother. LOVED the ending of the book. It made me smile, and I like that it leaves the ending open. I can see this book giving a kid who is getting an older sibling a great feeling about the possibilities that he or she can do with their new sibling. Plus the book is just a super fun read. Any kid would like it (and their parents too)! Apparently this is Zeltser’s first picture book. I’d love to see more from him.

Activities and Resources-

Get your ninjas some training by creating your own ninja training studio! There are plenty of ninja themed games and craft activities you can do – HERE is a list of come suggestions.

Try out some martial arts with your kids! I love training in the martial arts and have been since I was 5, but you are never too young (or old) to start. Go to a trial class at a local studio, or if you are a teacher, you can invite an instructor into class to give a demonstration! 

Check out the book’s trailer below.

November UBFP Column – Chelsea Clinton Appears at Children’s Book World

3 Nov

I write for the UBFP Newspaper!I wanted to share the article I wrote for the Upper Bucks Free Press (the newspaper I write for) for the November 2015 issue! The street and online version were just published. To see the online version of the newspaper, click HERE or you can read the whole story below (with some added pictures ;) )!

Hope you enjoy the article!

Chelsea Clinton Appears at Children’s Book World

By Erik Weibel

I was excited to attend a book signing by former fist daughter, Chelsea Clinton. Ms. Clinton recently wrote a children’s book titled “It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired, & Get Going!” (Philomel Books, September 15, 2015) The book is a well-written guide on many of the issues facing our world today as well as providing motivation to get kids to do something about it.


The event took place at Children’s Book World, in Haverford PA. When asked about a having a figure like Ms. Clinton at the book store, owner Heather Hebert said that an event like this brings the store onto people’s radars. Hebert is appreciative of publishers like Penguin Books (publisher of Clinton’s new book) for continuing to send amazing authors to Children’s Book World. Since some people were coming just because Ms. Clinton was there, Hebert hoped that once in the doors of this gem of a bookstore, the people will become regular patrons. Hebert said, it is “exciting to get people from new places.”


There definitely were a lot of people at the event! By the time it started, the line to get into the store was down the block and around the corner. The estimated attendance was between 450-500 people. As I waited my turn in line, I got a chance to ask a few people how they came to hear about the event. Some were store patrons that received notification from the store’s email list. Heather Bickley, and her children Lily and Noah, were new to the store, and had heard about the event via social media. Some in line were already familiar with Ms. Clinton’s book, liked the message and wanted to show support for it. One woman said that her children were always interested in charity works, and another said that he liked the overall message and ideas in the book. IMG_1162Piper Martz had heard about the event from her political science teacher via email, and had told her friend Anne Clare. They admitted that they were skipping class, but thought that meeting Chelsea Clinton made up for it. Piper pointed out that the “academic value of meeting Chelsea Clinton is incomparable to studying in school”, (I feel I should point out that, if their teachers read this article, they were working on their studies while waiting in line).



Ms. Clinton draws on her experiences as first daughter in the book. As first daughter, she was in a position to see the world in a way not many have the opportunity to and it shaped the story for the book. The book is about inspiring children by teaching them with an overview of the world’s challenges, like poverty, poaching, homelessness, and environmental issues. She gives examples of what other kids were doing to help combat some of these problems. When I got my chance to meet Ms. Clinton, she agreed to talk with me a little about the book. I ask her about the enormity of the problems outlined in the book and said that, as just one kid, it all seemed way too big to even start to do anything. Ms. Clinton told me to “look at big problems as lots of little problems” and work on the little ones. As I was talking to her, she told me about the story of a boy named Alex, who wanted to tackle the problem of homelessness and poverty. Instead of starting with the almost impossible task of completely stopping these problems, he chose to work on one part of it. Alex realized he always had extra pieces in his LEGO sets after he was done building them. He thought of the kids who don’t have any LEGOs at all because of their life situation. He took action and started collecting LEGO sets for these kids. Alex ended up donating thousands of LEGO sets to kids who couldn’t afford them. Clinton says this is just one example of how kids can make a difference.


At the end of each chapter, Ms. Clinton has a page of suggestions that you can do to help with whatever the chapter’s topic is. The suggestions are simple things that you can do to slowly change your life to take action help others. I really liked the entire layout of the book, and recommend it to any kid interested in making the world a better place. The message in the book and the theme at the book signing is something kids can all get behind, “We all can do something” Ms. Clinton said.

Review! Welcome to Mars by Buzz Aldrin

27 Oct

marsWelcome to Mars: Making a Home on the Red Planet

Written by Buzz Aldrin with Marianne J. Dyson

90 pages – ages 8+

Published by National Geographic Children’s Books on September 1st, 2015

Synopsis- Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live on Mars? If you have, you probably dismissed it as impossible. How would you like to hear that it may be possible to live on Mars? Within a few years, it may very well be imaginable to be setting up a colony on Mars. It is something that must be thought of, and will be a necessity for our survival as a species.

What I Thought- When I think of Mars habitation, I normally end up thinking of space-age technology bordering on Sci-Fi. When I read this book, I realized that the technology is closer than you might think. Much like the advanced technology that Jules Verne predicted and wrote about in the 1800s that is reality today, Buzz Aldrin bring future possibilities to us in this book. Aldrin theorizes about the time it will take for us to get to Mars and start a permanent colony. The text also tell the reader a lot about the red planet. In an easy to understand way, Mr. Aldrin helps explain how we would get to Mars, and tells us about Mars now, and what we would do while colonizing. Reading the book was very thought-provoking – it’s an interesting thought, moving to Mars. There are fun activities for kids reading the book to help teach them about the relationship between Earth and Mars such as Earth’s rotation vs. Mars’. There are cool illustrations, plus pictures of the planned living quarters on Mars. I think that this would be a fun class topic/project. You can discuss it with your students and even have them do activities about Mars exploration. Maybe I’ll do a school project on Mars-living!

Recap of #StarWarsReads Day – Star Wars Epic Yarns by Jack & Holman Wang

14 Oct

Before I get to today’s post, I get to announce that LAUREN has won the Diva and Flea Prize pack generously donated by Disney Publishing! Congratulations! I will be emailing you to get the address you will like your prize sent to. If you missed my review of this great book by Mo Willems and illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi – click HERE to check it out.

DivaFriendshipPrizeNOW ON TO TODAY’S POST!


On Saturday, October 10th, there was a convergence of the force in Bloomsburg Pennsylvania. This epic event was centered at the Columbia County Traveling Library’s home base. The reason: Star Wars Reads Day!

swr5You may recognize the Sith Apprentice to the left of Lord Vader. ;) Besides being a HUGE bibliophile, I am also a HUGE Star Wars fan so this event is something I look forward to each year. I am a member of the Galactic Academy, the junior Star Wars costuming club for fans (you have to be 18 to join the 501st Legion – the world-wide Star Wars costuming club).

The library asked me to do story time at Star Wars Reads Day this year. I was very excited about it. I chose to read the Epic Yarn books by Jack and Holman Wang.

swd2swd3Things went pretty well, but the Jawa kept stealing my light saber and was plotting to nab Boba Fett’s blaster. I think she was selling them on the galactic black market. The Imperial Guard kept startling the head librarian but at least he kept the Jawa in line. Here is a secret – the Jawa is my little sister Josie.  She is a member of the Galactic Academy too. ;)


Besides story time, the library had crafts, a trivia game, cookies (the dark side always loves cookies) and BOOKS!

A great time was had by all!


To learn more about Star Wars Reads Day, visit the official Facebook page HERE.

To learn more about the Columbia County Traveling Library, visit their page HERE.

Now more about these awesome Epic Yarn books!

When I saw these books, I was amazed. They are board books with only one word per page (meant for the youngest of readers – but WOW – one word per page and the photo illustrations tell the entire Star Wars story in 24 pages per book. What is even more amazing is that the photo illustrations are of felt figures staged on mini movie sets, all created by twin brothers Jack and Holman Wang.

epicyarnTo learn more about the process of creating these figures and the sets  that go along with  them, Chronicle Books has a very interesting blog post about it, click HERE to go THERE! The three books tell the tale of the original trilogy.

epicyarns2Star Wars Epic Yarns Series
24 pages (each book) – ages PreK+
Published by Chronicle Books on April 14, 2015

Publisher’s Summary – Share your love of Star Wars with your baby! In twelve needle-felted scenes and twelve child-friendly words, rediscover the iconic moments you know and love. Simple words, sturdy pages, and an epic story make these books the perfect vehicle for early learning at lightspeed. Jedi apprentices and little princesses alike will delight in this (heart)felt retelling of the Star Wars trilogy made just for them!

What I thought – This was an amazing book series – I never knew one word could tell so much! When I read them to the group of kids at Star Wars Reads Day, we had a discussion about each page and what is happening in the photo illustration. It was a lot of fun. Probably my favorite scene is where it shows Vader leaning over the bridge-thing in Cloud City, and the one word is “Father”, because it summed up one of the biggest plot twists in movie history (I may be a bit biased) with just one word. The felt figures are extremely detailed, and make it seem like you are watching clips from the movie. Mr. & Mr. Wang have created a boardbook masterpiece! It belongs in the home of any parent or child who loves Star Wars.

I give this series five out of five bookworms!fivebooks


The Story of #DivaandFlea – Review, Giveaway, Mo Willems and Tony DiTerlizzi!

7 Oct

I am very excited to tell you about this book! In case you are wondering about the title to this post, I am not giving away Mo Willems and Tony DiTerlizzi BUT I am giving away a cool prize pack to celebrate this collaboration of these two titans of children’s literature (read to the bottom to see how to win a prize pack provided by Disney Publishing)!

DivaandFleaCoverThe Story of Diva and Flea
Written by Mo Willems
Illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi
80 pages – ages 6+
Published by Disney-Hyperion on October 13, 2015

About the Book: (from the publisher)

Diva, a small yet brave dog, and Flea, a curious streetwise cat, develop an unexpected friendship in this unforgettable tale of discovery.

For as long as she could remember, Diva lived at 11 avenue Le Play in Paris, France. For as long as he could remember, Flea also lived in Paris, France–but at no fixed address. When Flea flâneurs past Diva’s courtyard one day, their lives are forever changed. Together, Diva and Flea explore and share their very different worlds, as only true friends can do.

What I thought: This was an amazing book! I thought it was really cool how Mr. Willems partnered with Tony DiTerlizzi because he was searching for the perfect illustrations for his story. It is a great transition book for kids moving up from picture books or early readers. There is a nice contrast of words and pictures that make the 80 pages go by in a breeze. There is a lot of humor in the book, like Flea telling Diva to say “Meow”, and Flea’s pronunciation of words. I was also happy to see one Pigeon book reference, on a poster at the subway scene. That made me smile while I was reading it. I think that as a whole, Mr. Willems and Mr. DiTerlizzi make a fantastic team. I would be thrilled to see more of their collaborations! I really enjoyed reading this great story of friendship! I found it pretty neat that Diva and Flea are real animals in France.

I personally found the video very cool because it talks about how Mo Willems had a story but he couldn’t draw it correctly so he sought out an illustrator who could draw the story as he envisioned. As it turns out Mr. DiTerlizzi added much more to the story through his illustrations.

Perfect Picture Book Friday! Swan by Laurel Snyder

25 Sep

Susanna Leonard Hill has a feature on her blog called Perfect Picture Book Friday. It is a list of “perfect” picture books recommended by all sorts of people. I chose this book because it is a beautiful nonfiction story.

Swan_jkt_Bologna.inddSwan: The Life and Dance of Anna Pavlova
Written by Laurel Snyder
Illustrations by Julie Morstad
52 pages – ages 6+
Published by Chronicle Books on August 18, 2015

Theme/Topic- Perseverance / Kindness

Genre- Nonfiction

Opening and Synopsis- Opening: 

“The city is big.
Anna is small.
The snow is
and all around.”

Synopsis: From Goodreads; “One night, her [Anna’s] mother takes her to the ballet, and everything is changed. Anna finds a beauty inside herself that she cannot contain.

So begins the journey of a girl who will one day grow up to be the most famous prima ballerina of all time, inspiring legions of dancers after her: the brave, the generous, the transcendently gifted Anna Pavlova.

Why I liked this book- This is an amazing book! The illustrations are top-notch, and really bring you into the story. They are incredibly beautiful and awe-inspiring. The ratio of detail to blank-space is very compelling. The story line itself is a great blend of the biography of Anna Pavlova and emotion-tugging heart-strings. Ms. Snyder puts it in a marvelous free-verse poetry style, with repetition and a rhythmic feeling. This is an amazing book, and one I would definitely recommend to anyone! There is a great balance between learning, and a great story!

Activities and Resources- Learn more about Anna Pavlova HERE.

Review! Alistair Grim’s Odditorium by Gregory Funaro AND GIVEAWAY WINNER!!!

29 Jun

The winner of the Vanishing Island Giveaway is:



Congratulations! I will be emailing you to get your info to send you the book!

odditoriumAlistair Grim’s Odditorium
By Gregory Funaro
432 pages – ages 9+
Published by Disney-Hyperion on January 6, 2015

Synopsis- Grubb (spelled like the insect, but with an extra ‘B’, and no last name) is an orphan. He was taken in as a babe by the kindly but elderly Mrs. Smears. Sadly, Mrs. Smears dies when he was just six. Mr. Smears, angry and in grief, turns out to be a not-so-nice man. When Grubb runs away to get rid of bullies (and Mr. Smears), he accidentally hitches a ride with a mysterious “Mr. G”. It turns out that Alistair Grim (Mr. G) is a collector of magical items (he collects them in the Odditorium), and he needs help that Grubb can give. Grubb becomes Mr. G’s apprentice and soon finds himself in a life and death battle to keep the magic out of evil hands.

What I Thought- This was a really good book! Grubb is a great character! You really feel for him, and hope that his life turns out for the better. Alistair Grim is also a cool character. He seems like that interesting, distant uncle that everyone likes. The Odditorium is a fascinating building that I would love to check out. The Odditoria of the Odditorium is also awesome. If you don’t know what I mean, read the book! You’ll love it! I really like Mr. Funaro’s writing style. There is a ton of description, without it ever bogging the story down. It really made me feel like I was in London during the 1800’s. At 432 pages it is a story that a reader can really sink into and enjoy. The non-stop action will keep readers interested in the story and the characters keep you wanting to learn more.

I give this book 5 out of 5 bookworms!fivebooks

Review and Giveaway! The Princess and the Pony by Kate Beaton #PonyTime

25 Jun


Princess and the Pony FINAL TEXT.pdfThe Princess and the Pony

By Kate Beaton

40 pages – ages 4+

Will be published by Arthur A. Levine Books on June 30, 2015

Synopsis- From the Publisher: “Princess Pinecone knows exactly what she wants for her birthday this year. A BIG horse. A STRONG horse. A horse fit for a WARRIOR PRINCESS! But when the day arrives, she doesn’t quite get the horse of her dreams…


From the artist behind the comic phenomenon Hark! A Vagrant, The Princess and the Pony is a laugh-out-loud story of brave warriors, big surprises, and falling in love with one unforgettable little pony.

What I Thought- This was a cute picture book set in viking times. Princess Pinecone is a young princess whose parents don’t seem to understand that she’s a warrior princess. They give her cozy sweaters instead of armor and warrior stuff.


I like how this book is about being yourself, and not what society says you are. It also shows that you can make the best out of any situation… and it has farting ponies ha ha ha. The illustrations have just the right amount of detail and they add to the humor in the story. The story isn’t about girls not being able to be warriors – there are plenty pictures in the illustrations. It’s just that Princess Pinecone’s seems to have been labeled more princess than warrior. The twist in the story (at the battle scene) was unexpected, and made me laugh. The book reminds me of one of those fractured fairy tale cartoons. Overall very cute story with a nice message.

BLOG TOUR AND GIVEAWAY! Vanishing Island by Barry Wolverton

22 Jun

vanishing island preview tour banner updated

I am very excited to share this book with you. It is the beginning to a very promising series and even better – one of you will get to win a signed ARC of the book! Details of the giveaway are at the bottom of the post. :)


Vanishing Island
By Barry Wolverton
Book 1 of the Chronicles of the Black Tulip
352 pages – ages 8+
Will be published by Walden Pond Press on September 1, 2015


Publisher’s Summary- Does  the Vanishing Island really exist? And if so, what treasure—or terrible secret—was hidden by its disappearance?

It’s 1599, the Age of Discovery in Europe. But for Bren Owen, growing up in the small town of Map on the coast of Britannia has meant anything but adventure. Enticed by the tales sailors have brought through Map’s port, and inspired by the arcane maps his father creates as a cartographer for the cruel and charismatic map mogul named Rand McNally, Bren is convinced that fame and fortune await him elsewhere. That is, until his repeated attempts to run away land him a punishment worse than death—cleaning up the town vomitorium.

It is there that Bren meets a dying sailor, who gives him a strange gift that hides a hidden message. Cracking the code could lead Bren to a fabled lost treasure that could change his life forever, and that of his widowed father. But to get there he will have to tie his fate to a mysterious Dutch admiral obsessed with a Chinese legend about an island that long ago disappeared from any map.

Before long, Bren is in greater danger than he ever imagined, and will need the help of an unusual friend named Mouse to survive. Barry Wolverton’s thrilling adventure spans oceans and cultures, brings together the folklore of East and West, and proves that fortune is always a double-edged sword.

What I Thought- This was an amazing book! It had adventure, comedy, excitement, mystery – pretty much anything you could want in a book! Bren is a character you would like to meet in real life. He has dreams, and he’s clever in how he gets them achieved. Mouse is a cool character too. I really like how Mr. Wolverton doesn’t hide that sea isn’t always exciting – at times Bren is just sitting around at sea. There is death throughout the story, but it is not graphic/gory. There are some illustrations that will be put in the final version of the book, but not in the ARC that I read (they weren’t in yet), and they play a role in the story, so that was sad for me. Guess I’ll have to get the completed version! This is a solid start to a new series. :)
