Book Review: Witch Upon A Star (Witch Way Librarian Mysteries, #4) by Angela M. Sanders

Witch Upon A Star (Witch Way Librarian Mysteries, #4) by Angela M. Sanders was published May 23, 2023 by Kensington Books.  Josie is excited to have her sister Jean come visit her in Wilfred, Oregon.  However, Josie isn't quite as happy for the reason . . . Jean is attending a workshop to become a certified life coach.  When two people associated with the workshop are found murdered, and Jean is threatened, Josie sticks her nose into the investigation. A big thank you goes out to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Witch Upon A Star (Witch Way Librarian Mysteries, #4) by Angela M. Sanders.  I was happy to be approved to receive this book for free in exchange for my honest review.  After reading this book, I'm now a fan of the author and can't wait to read the first three books in the series or for the next installment to come out. I was pleasantly surprised that the story was so well written and engaging.  At times, it played like a movie

Book Review: Don't Be A Bully, Little Tiger by Carol Roth

book review don't be a bully little tiger carol roth

Don't Be A Bully, Little Tiger by Carol Roth is a children's picture book published by NorthSouth Books due out on June 27, 2023.  Little Tiger is about to start his first day of school, but he doesn't know how to behave.  He's quite the bully . . . if there is something he wants, he just takes it.  When his teacher gently advises him to be kinder, he realizes he'll make more friends.

I'd like to thank both NetGalley and NorthSouth Books for approving my request to read this book.  It seemed like it would be a great way for little ones to learn about sharing and being nice to one another, and I wasn't disappointed.

The illustrations of this children's book were done exceptionally well, and if I were a child, I would have absolutely loved the pictures.  The author did a phenomenal job of teaching the importance of sharing and being nice to your classmates.  It gives parents and teachers the perfect way to open a dialogue with three, four, and even five year old children about the topics of sharing and bullying in an age appropriate way.  

My only complaint, and it's not really a complaint, is that it the teacher only said one thing to Little Tiger.  I feel like this particular scene could have been a tad bit longer and even better with a bit more explanation.

If I were a preschool or kindergarten teacher, this is a book that would definitely be read to students.  Four out of five stars is what I give Don't Be A Bully, Little Tiger by Carol Roth.
