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.

Book Review: Avocado Magic by Taltal Levi

book review avocado magic taltal levi

Avocado Magic by Taltal Levi is a children's book about a young girl named Ellie celebrating her birthday under the family avocado tree and how unhappy she is that she hasn't grown any.  Ellie's father teaches her about how she is like an avocado pit and how slowly it seems to grow but how patience is a virtue.

A big thank you goes out to NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Avocado Magic by Taltal Levi. I'm always looking for great children's books to recommend to friends and family with little ones, so I was excited to read this book and will definitely be recommending it.

I love that Avocado Magic by Taltal Levi helps kids understand that all things come in time with a little patience. Another thing that I liked about the story is it shows a family that has its own traditions like having birthdays under their avocado tree . . . a tradition that is shown to continue when the child starts their own family.

Five out of five stars is what I gave Avocado Magic by Taltal Levi. Even though I am an adult, I enjoyed this picture book, and I know I would have absolutely loved it as a little kid. This is a definite read for kids between the ages of three and five.
