Oliver and Jumpy Stories 34-36 by Werner Stejskal

     Once again we join Oliver the Cat and Jumpy the Kangaroo for their newest adventures. Each time these two get together, there is plenty of fun to follow.  Let's see what they are up to this time.
     Story 34 How I Found My Top Hat. This one takes us back to when Oliver was just a kitten. He spies a top hat in the window of a store and loves it immediately. Oliver knows he must work to get the money to buy it. There is a surprise for Oliver though.
     Story 35 Oliver In The Circus. Have you ever wanted to be part of the circus? Such fun it would be. Oliver is hired by the circus to do many jobs. He enjoys each of them because they keep him in the circus. Will he make it to the spotlight?
     Story 36 Ship Wreck. Oliver and Jumpy are on a ship when a terrible storm hits. They aren't sure what is happening until they are told Oliver must find a tiara. The tiara is for King Xylon's bride. I wonder if Oliver finds it.

     Such variety when it comes to children's stories are a huge plus! Parents get bored just as the children do, reading the same old thing. These stories take children all over. It allows them to experience different environments and jobs. The writing is amazing and the characters like old friends. Your child's imagination will definitely get a workout with these books. Perfect for bedtime or nap time.  I enjoy the way it teaches children a lesson. Please get these for your child's library. They will want you to read them again and again. 

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because children love them.

Oliver and Jumpy Stories 31-33 By Werner Stejskal

    Oliver and Jumpy  are best friends. They have some wonderful adventures together and we get to share it with them. In this book, story 31 is about a Crockery Party. Story 32 is about the Shark Frenzy and story 33 is about a Small World. Each adventure is full of fun . Let's see what happens.
     Story 31 the Crockery Party. This is  New Year's Day, but it's also the day the dishes come alive! They sing, play and make a fine dinner. Everyone looks forward to the day and a chance to have fun with their friends.  
    Story 32, the Shark Frenzy. Whales love to play. They love jumping out of the water and splashing each other. They enjoy chasing each other too. Unfortunately the sharks like to sneak up on you when the whales are out to play. Perhaps we can all play together?
    Story 33 the Small World.  Did you know there are tiny beautiful things in the grass? Oliver didn't know either until one day he shrinks down to the size of an ant. He finds the world, though small, is just as beautiful as ours is. 

     This series of bedtime or nap time stories are terrific.  The writing is extremely well done and the characters are so well defined your child will feel as if they've known them for years.  Each story is just long enough to lull your child to dreamland with their imaginations over flowing. I love that lessons are tied into the story. It gives your child a chance to learn without realizing it. All of the stories allow your child to join in the fun and keep the fun going with their own additions. As a parent you will enjoy how easy these stories are for bedtime. I suggest you add these to your child's library.

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because they are always such fun.

A day with Moo: a best friend book (The Adventures of Midge and Moo, #1) by Kerry McQuaide

     When Midge was two days old, she and Moo came home from the hospital together. Midge grew to love Moo and make him her best friend. They do every thing together. They even get into trouble sometimes. They love building things and then making them crash. It's fantastic to have someone to love you unconditionally.

     I can relate to these books because my fifteen year old daughter came home from the hospital with her bunny, Grace. Like Midge and Moo, they were never apart.  Midge and Moo are perfect books to start your child's library with. Each one contains a lesson and are perfect to jump start your child's love of books.

     I found no issues.
