Review: Truthy Ruthy's Christmas Surprise


LadyD Books: Truthy Ruthy Christmas Surprise

 From the Author:


“The idea of making an interactive children’s book for ages 4-8 with three different endings will help children to learn that there’s always more than one solution to any of life’s little dilemmas. As an international expert in creative thinking, I’ve always emphasized to parents that giving children the freedom to choose, and find their own solutions, is a great gift that will make a huge difference in their lives.” Sari Barel.

 

The Friday 56 


"Where is Ruthy? said her Mom.
"Maybe she has fallen asleep?
Suddenly there was a knock, knock, knock at the door.
"Who could that be?" said the family.
Surprise!

 My Review


This is an appealing book about finding solutions and allowing children the freedom of choice. Truthy Ruthy doesn't have any money because she's only 5. She wants to surprise her family with Christmas gifts. Experiencing a series of 3 dreams and left with a surprise box from Santa, children will learn to be creative, like making their own jewelry. Perhaps taking the initiative to discover a different approach in being creative, or experiencing a narrow perspective of being very disappointed. The 3 separate stories are the same but focus on a birthday surprise. Overall, there are many simple illustrations for the young people to see and interaction for older children. Many lessons to be learned.
4/5 stars.


December morning overlooking a small eastern mountain range in SoCal. Looks like a winter storm is leaving and heading for Arizona. It has been sheer delight in receiving some rainfall.

The Friday 56 


"Garlic is one of my favorite herbs because it adds a unique, distinctive zip to any dish. Just think of what pesto would be without garlic. Bland, and boring."
I really like this book so far and I'm looking forward to posting my review.

Skywatch Friday 

LadyD Books: November Sunrise

It sure pays off to wake up early and see a majestic sunrise. It's raining today and oh, how we welcome the much needed water for SoCal. This particular photo was taken while observing a glorious early November sun rising over the eastern mountains. I was thinking of all the garlic I use when I prepare meals for my family. After reading the above snippet, I thought why not... a zippy garlic sky!

Enjoy the weekend!

Friday #56 (56%reader)

"Here, Archisha let me read this part to you. You won't believe it!"

My Review


The story begins with a camper, while located upstream he soon forgets and leaves a book behind. The black bear twins named Archisha and Minninnewah start to read it and learn all about bears. The book is overflowing with some new and great information regarding:

American Black Bear
Asiatic Black Bear
Sloth Bear
Spectacled Bear
Brown Bear
Grizzly Bear
Kodiak Bear
Giant Panda
Sun bear
Polar Bear

For instance, did you know that Polar Bears swim 100 miles without tiring? Children between the ages of 5-8 will learn that a daddy bear is a Boar and mommy bear is a Sow. The author shares that almost all bears look alike. One important fact to glean from the book is that bears see and hear as well as humans but they have a special organ that is in the roof of their mouth so they can smell food from several miles away. The adventure of learning all about bears is fun and educational for young people and adults, too.

5/5 stars. Recommend to friends for home and school library.

Morning Fog

Low fog with morning sunrise

 Earl morning fog looks like a particular setting where one might see a bear, if up in the mountains and perhaps along a nearby stream with wilderness trees. Photo taken in SoCal facing the east.
