Welcome friends! This is your kid zone for books, movies, music, and more! We happily will be offering review services, blog spots, author features, blog hops, and more as we build. We will also be publishing a magazine out every 6 months-beginning in June- featuring new authors, great reads, and reviews on Kids books, music, movies, and more!
We will be featuring Laurel's illustrator- Monettte Pangan. However, I find it important to note... ALL of Laurel's images were beautiful. Fox and Rabbit are distinct characters, and the new little fella has his own charms as well. Each flower, vegetable, line, and shade beautifully fits the tale. Monette is not only a talented author, she is a magically talented artist and illustrator!
We hope you all enjoyed the week learning about the incredibly talented author Laurel Heger!!!
Join us next week as we discuss Author Crystal Clifton!
A very weary and hungry fox happens upon a little rabbit
tending his vegetable garden. The kind little rabbit invites the hungry fox to
stay for supper, an invitation he eagerly accepts. All the while, Fox dreams of
having rabbit stew for his supper. As Fox helps prepare all the vegetables he
gathered, a scrumptious aroma fills the air!
Five Stars! 'A Refreshing and Lighthearted Read' - Readers'
Favorite by Michelle Robertson:
rabbit has prepared a garden watching it grow and prosper with yummy vegetables
and herbs. A hungry fox eyes the little rabbit tending to his garden, with only
one thing on his mind: Having Rabbit Stew for Dinner! Little does
the fox know that when he offers to help the rabbit carry in his harvest of vegetables
and herbs, that his dinner will be the complete opposite of the menu he
originally had in mind. The book offers fun and vibrant pictures to
enhance the imagination of its readers. I absolutely loved this
story. It was a refreshing and lighthearted read.
I think this book has a wonderful tale of friendship! Fox
is SO hungry and Rabbit looks SO tasty. Fox helps Rabbit garden and Rabbit is
kind to Fox. In the end Fox decides the vegetable stew is much better than
Rabbit stew! Cute illustrations and great story!
