I Broke My Trunk! (An Elephant and Piggie Book)



My Review

Gerald, the gray elephant with glasses, shares with Piggie how his trunk broke because she really wants to know. So she listens attentively and with expectation to Gerald's crazy story. It's a delightful conversation between these two characters that will hold young people's attention.The scenarios that follow next leave the reader laughing aloud and adults will enjoy, too. The illustrations are simple in style and adorable. I especially like the one of Gerald lifting Hippo on his trunk. Soon Rhino shows up and yes, you guessed it. Plus, add Rhino's sister, along with her piano. Piggie impatiently asks, "How did you break your trunk?!" You've just got to get this funny book and read the conclusion. My 6 year old grandson loves this one. I do, too!

5/5 stars. Recommend to friends.

I thought this particular sunrise went well with the Elephant & Piggie Book. I know, I can't find those images either in this picture but at least the pastel orange matches the top band of the book! How is it where you are? Photo for Skywatch Friday

Review: The Berenstain Bears and the Biggest Brag


LadyD Books Review: The Berenstain Bears and the Biggest Brag


Book Description

 

A new addition to the bestselling Berenstain Bears' Living Lights series that teaches simple Christian truths to children.

In this newest Berenstain Bears Living Lights book, The Berenstain Bears and the Biggest Brag, Grizzly Gramps teaches Brother and Sister a valuable lesson about bragging and boasting. When he happens to overhear the cubs bickering about who can spot the most unusual cloud formations, Gramps puts a stop to the argument. He reminds them that being proud of a special talent from God is one thing, but bragging about a talent is foolish.

My Review


What a sweet book and woven throughout the story is a valuable lesson for character building. It's an easy read for older children and young ones listen attentively while engaging with the cute illustrations, pointing to all the clouds. Bragging is never a good idea for anyone to do but two over achiever cubs find themselves in this situation. The brother and sister compete with one another rigorously by topping their stories. Finally, the cubs get locked into a debate over cloud formations. Things do get resolved and there's a great family discussion guide in the back of the book. Bottom line, feel good about the all the good you are doing but don't brag about it. Let someone else say really great things about you! I especially like the conflicts and resolving them with Grandpa bear's wisdom. A delightful, well-thought-out book and a blessing for young families and grandparents to help young children feel good about the talents God has given them without boasting.

5/5 stars. Recommend for home and church library.

I received a free copy of the book from BookLookBloggers.

My Review

My 6 year old grandson easily read through this delightful book with a huge smile on his face. He really enjoyed reading about the main character, Balu and his very interesting relationship with a friend, World. The simple yet colorful illustrations capture your attention and pinpoint exactly Balu's  attitude and approach with World. It's a cute story for the young child and adults, too. What a refreshing perspective in weaving the story line of co-existence and arriving at a healthy, peaceful resolution of understanding in getting along on this wonderful planet.

5/5 stars. Highly recommend to friends.
