Book Review: There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner

There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner is a children's book where kids look to make sure there are no dragons in the book.  The expected publication date is March 5, 2024.  I'd like to thank NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of this book. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in this picture book.  I didn't care for the story, and it's not something I would likely read to a child.  I also didn't like that the story actually did have dragons in it only because I feel like a child might be upset that they were mislead.  However, I'm not the target audience, so kids may love it. On a positive note, I did enjoy the colorful illustrations.  It definitely gives the reader a lot to look at.  Three out of five stars is what I gave There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner.

Book Review: Adam and His Tuba by Ziga X Gombac

Book Review Adam and His Tuba by Ziga X Gombac Picture Book Children's Book

Adam and His Tuba by Ziga X Gombac and illustrated by Maja Kastelic is a children's picture book that has been translated by Olivia Hellewell.  The expected publication date is February 28, 2023.  This picture book is about a boy named Adam who travels with his circus family, but he doesn't like performing like the rest of his family.

I'd like to thank NetGalley and NorthSouth Books for the Advanced Readers Copy of Adam and His Tuba by Ziga X Gombac.  The title of the book and the cover art caught my attention.  I thought this might be a super cute book, and I'm always looking for books that I might be able to gift to friends and family with young children, so I was delighted to be able read this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

Let me begin by saying that the illustrations in Adam and His Tuba are fantastic.  I found myself drawn to the pictures and just staring at them . . . they were that intriguing.  The storyline was just as fantastic.  I loved that the story lets kids know that it's okay to be different from the rest of their family.  Even though I'm an adult, it really spoke to me because I remember feeling different from my cousins when I was a kid.  The only negative I have about this book is that a couple of the transitions were a bit rough.

Four out of five stars is what I give Adam and His Tuba by Ziga X Gombac.  It would be a great addition to any children's library and is perfect for children aged three through six.
