Book Review: Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss

Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss opens with Caroline Kline couch surfing in New York City due to her no longer having a job and her fiance breaking up with her. The cherry on top is when Caroline finds out her father is not doing well and has to go home to New Jersey to help out. She finds one thing she didn't expect . . . true love. I received an Advanced Readers Copy of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline from NetGalley for free in exchange for my honest review.  The synopsis of this book was intriguing, and I absolutely love baseball, so I couldn't wait to dig in to this story. Unfortunately, the story started off a bit slow and continued to be slow at points throughout the book. The slowness of the plot made it difficult to stay interested in the characters and their fate.  At one point, I didn't really care if I finished the story or not.

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.
