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: On Air with Zoe Washington (Zoe Washington, #2) by Janae Marks

book review on air with zoe washington janae marks

On Air With Zoe Washington (Zoe Washington, #2) by Janae Marks opens with Zoe Washington going to work with her birth father, who has recently been released from jail for a crime he was wrongfully convicted of committing.  As they have lunch together, Zoe finds out her father has a dream of opening up his own restaurant and hiring exonerees.  When she starts researching how to open a restaurant, Zoe realizes it is much more difficult than she thought it would be and takes to the airwaves by creating a podcast.

I'd like to thank NetGalley for the Advanced Reader's Edition, or Advanced Reader's Copy (ARC), of On Air With Zoe Washington (Zoe Washington, #2).  I was thrilled to be chosen to read this book in exchange for my honest review.  The expected publication date of this book is February 14, 2023.  When I asked to review this book and was waiting on approval, I didn't realize that it was the second book in a series.  It can definitely be read as a stand alone book, but I personally would recommend reading the books in order as it will help the reader understand the background of the characters.  

I am glad to see that there are more books representing people of color as it's important for everyone to be represented.  Another thing I'm glad to see is that it talks about people who were incarcerated that were innocent and the important work of the Innocence Project.  Additionally, I was pleased that On Air With Zoe Washington deals with a family dynamic that is more prominent in today's society where a child is raised by a biological parent and a step parent.

Is there anything negative I can say about this book?  Nope!  It's a fantastic book.  I thoroughly enjoyed On Air With Zoe Washington (Zoe Washington, #2) by Janae Marks and give it five out of five stars.
