Book Review: Santa's Countdown to Christmas, 24 Days of Stories by Kim Thompson, Illustrated by Elodie Duhameau

Santa's Countdown to Christmas by Kim Thompson, Illustrated by Elodie Duhameau was published on October 2, 2017 and is a book format of an advent calendar.  Told from the perspective of Santa Claus, the storyline chronicles what Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, the elves, and the reindeer do in preparation of Christmas on each day of December leading up to Christmas Day. I'd like to thank NetGalley and Crackboom! Books for giving me a copy of Santa's Countdown to Christmas in exchange for my honest review.  I was thrilled to be approved to read this book because I love Christmas and am a kid at heart. This picture book was well written and engaging.  The illustrations were phenomenal as well.  I even enjoyed reading it as an adult.  I wish I had kids of my own so I could buy it for them, but I guess I'll have to settle for buying it for family members and friends who have kids that believe in Santa Claus.  I'd recommend this book for babies through eight years old.  Reading

Book Review: I Don't Want To Move by Carolyn Watkins

Book Review I Don't Want To Move by Carolyn Watkins

I Don't Want To Move by Carolyn Watkins is a children's picture book about the pitfalls of moving, going to a new school, and making new friends.  It's a great book for children between the ages of three and six.

First and foremost, I'd like to thank NetGalley and BooksGoSocial for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of I Don't Want To Move by Carolyn Watkins.  I loved the cover art of this picture book and was excited to be approved to read and review this book in exchange for my honest review.

Although this book does a fairly good job at explaining the moving process on a child friendly level, I felt like it made it seem a little too easy.  I also found some of the transitions to be a bit choppy.

All in all, I think this is a great book for parents to buy for their young children when they are going to move.  It opens the door for the parents to have a dialogue with their children about moving and what to expect.  I gave I Don't Want To Move by Carolyn Watkins four out of five stars.
