This is a fantastic little book, targeted at pre-school aged children, that I was sent in hard copy, in exchange for my honest review.
It has amazing textural pictures with lots of detail I found, exactly the type of book I used to read to my grade 1-2 students in art class when demonstrating a certain textural element I wanted them to try and reproduce in a picture of their choosing. I especially love how they illustrated the wet water droplets on the Momma Turtle.
This story shows a little bit about the reproduction cycle of turtles from swimming to a beach, laying eggs burying them, and then hatching 8 weeks later. It also shows what can happen if a baby turtle gets spun around, away from the sea.
Here is a quick video I made, let me know what your thoughts are about this book from the beginning few pages (and the new style of video review I’m trying!)
– and I REALLY need to review a tripod or something for iPhones for better camera steadiness I think!!!!

I was approved to review the following promotions…. but was never sent them for various reasons – so I cannot tell you about them other than that they exist. . .
Clicking the photo will take you to their Amazon listing if you are interested in them.
I received the Audible version of this story free of charge in exchange for an honest opinion. I was ALSO given permission to give this away to one of my followers!!!
Information at the bottom of my blog post on how to enter!
Rashidi is the village medicine man, and is hunting for the oracle. It has been generations since the last one has been seen, but the villagers are desperate. They are deep into the rainy season, but have not yet seen any rain. After nights of searching they finally find, and capture the strange creature with scales like a dragon is said to have the power of prophecy and to make strong and wise any who would eat it.
This is what the FIRST page says: Jacob is six and loves to cook. He loves being in the kitchen and using the pots, skillets and utensils. Jacob loves the aroma of fresh ingredients, spices and something good baking in the oven. But most of all, he loves spending time with his Mom.
Except for being six years of age, this sounds EXACTLY like my son! Just from this page, I am in LOVE with this book. This could totally have been written about us. Even the son having blond hair, and mom having reddish brown could totally be us in 5 years (does anyone see the resemblance? I do have blue eyes.. but other than that?)
This was an AWESOME book showing tolerance towards others. It doesn’t matter if they are huge or thin, look different, many people can be a potential friend if you only give them a chance. Apparently some of my followers located in Canada were not able to download this free yesterday because of living in Canada, which makes me so very sad.
I have plans to blog to you all about Good Friends tomorrow… so just checked that the US link I had was correct on amazon for this and saw that it is currently $0! That’s right… it’s FREE. I am SURE that there was a charge before, so you need to get this now, while you still can without cost.
I will post my review tomorrow, but was worried if I waited to share this, it might be too late. I honestly can’t remember if this is always free or not.
