Review: Yummy Stories: six stories to stimulate your mind and appetite by Lil L. Alexander

Title: Yummy Stories
Author: Lil L. Alexander
Pages: 52
Published: Dec. 9, 2014 
Genre: Children
Review: Paperback provided by author 

Yummy Stories is a Mom’s Choice Awards® Gold Recipient and Beverly Hills Book Awards Winner.
This book has truly gone too far. First, it inspires kids to read it aloud. Then, it makes them laugh and sing, and to top it all, it whets their appetite for veggies. How about that! And even though it encourages healthy eating habits, this yummy book is not "preachy" but fun.

Six fascinating fairy tales with vibrant illustrations are set to take children to a magical world, with unforgettable characters. Talking vegetables, a hungry dinosaur, fairies, giants and a cabbage-loving emperor are ready to delight early readers with their adventures in the wild. Each story includes rhymes, entertaining sounds and concludes with a short poem. One of these stories is also interactive: children can choose the proper ending.

The book contains a coloring page and a tricksy game where readers have to discover characters hidden in other stories, as well as cleverly disguised vegetables. The artwork is exciting and unique, featuring mushroom houses, clouds made of cauliflower, broccoli forests or asparagus fences. All of these elements are masterfully mixed since the writer is also a teacher, a food artist, an organic gardener, and a parent.

This rich and fulfilling collection of stories encourages healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime. And you know what the best part is? It's fun, and children adore it. Try it and see for yourself!

Book Tour and Review: Nalah Goes To Mad Mouse City by Anne Sawyer-Aitch

Title: Nalah Goes to Mad Mouse City
Author: Anne Sawyer-Aitch
Publisher: Magic Lantern Press
Pages: 44
Genre: Children’s Picture Book
Format: Paperback
The adventures of Nalah continue! One day Nalah finds herself bored and lonesome because all of her imaginary friends have gone away on vacation. But wait – not all. Mad Tooth, the little mouse who lives in her sock drawer, is still busy munching away on her knee-highs. When she finds out why Nalah is sad, she offers to take her down through the sock drawer into a mouse metropolis. The result is a tale of wild dancing, cousins and mice, taffy and a sock monster.

“Gorgeously illustrated with a process I've only seen before in Anne Sawyer-Aitch's 1st book, Nalah and the Pink Tiger. My 4-year-old particularly enjoyed the x-ray view of the stilting guard of Mad Mouse City, and was inspired to make several of her own versions of the illustration. Another fun story with a relatable young girl as protagonist and vivid fantastic characters she encounters.” – E. Bestrom, Good Reads reader
