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: 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.
