A Flashlight Press Review, Three Children’s Books

First, let me say…I love what I do! Besides selling Avon, spending time in my makeup room, AKA “makeup studio,” and filming beauty videos; I love waking up every morning to see if I have any new review opportunities for my grandparent blog. <3 I am loving life! I also do beauty reviews.

Let’s get to this review for some charming children’s books! ~~~ It’s always a pleasure working with Allison Rosenblum ~ Editorial Assistant of Flashlight Press. www.flashlightpress.com

HOW I MET MY MONSTER

Written By: Amanda Noll and Illustrated By: Howard McWilliam

This delightful book is big, bold, and beautifully illustrated by Howard McWilliam.
The actual size of the book is a generous 10 1/2 By 10 1/2. The graphical title (on the book) is of raised lettering and, is characterized as vivid, colorful, and lifelike. <3

It all started when Ethan peeped under his bed for a toy truck, only to discover a note reading…”Monsters! Meet Here For Final Test!”

Well, Ethan is thinking his folks are attempting to fool him into remaining under the spreads, then he spied five enormous eyes gazing back at him from under his bed.

As it turned out, that monster meeting was a competition to find out which little, quirky beast could be Ethan’s favorite.

As each little monster performs for this little boy’s attention, Ethan is found somewhat amused with just a touch of horrified; as he is not really all that frightened. <3

With its proportion of snickers and shudders, this silly, spooky prequel to the honor winning I Need My Monster and Hey, That’s MY Monster! will keep little ones engaged.

ARE YOU MY MONSTER?

Written By: Amanda Noll and Illustrated By: Howard McWilliam

At first, I certainly thought that “How I Met My Monster” was my favorite. However, after reading through “Are You My Monster?” I found it to be just as entertaining and colorful. The art is phenomenal! Howard McWilliam did an excellent job with making these adorable little creatures come to life. <3

This book is spot on for babies and very young children. It is very well built and put together, just as a board book should be.

These little monster friends are quite comical, and they also, have their own quirky personalities. Charming storyline as Ethan eagerly studies to find the exact match to his stuffed, fury friend. This little boy needs some shut eye. Ethan simply can’t fall asleep without finding his true monster. Truly a light-hearted, delightful book that any young child would love!

I LOVE MY DRAGON

Written By: Jodi Moore and Illustrated By: Howard McWilliam

This book is adorable and perfect for babies and toddlers. It was inspired by The Exclusive “When a Dragon Moves In.” “I Love My Dragon” is another beautiful and brilliant board book. I LOVE the colors of the pages and the characters! Excellent presentation and a lovable, feel-good story just right for tucking those angel babies in for the night.

*Yawn….Night, Night!! <3 <3

Dick Punnett’s Talk-Along Book Series – Cherished By Children and Grandchildren

Teaching and entertaining children and grandchildren has continually been considered one of my preferred topics to write. Today I wanted to share with you some charming books that are sure to both educate and delight the youth of preschool to 7 years of age.

I’ll be honest; I was (briefly) confused when I found out that the books I wanted to discuss here were titled “The Talk-Along Book Series.” However, after receiving them and reading the full book, Name Lizzy’s Colors I completely understood. 😉

This book is so beautifully illustrated by Tom Dunnington, with brightly colored pages that ANY child, or grandchild would sure to be thoroughly entertained with every turning page. Also, Name Lizzy’s Colors was cleverly written and mastered with teaching in mind. Author Dick Punnett, has a special gift that encourages participation with three little dots that lead to rhyming answers on the next page; thus, came the name, “The Talk-Along Series.” Quite proficient with keeping little ones (drawn in) and enthused with the story.

<3

The Talk-Along Book Series was originally published (in hard cover) in 1982 and consisted of five books; including the one mentioned above about a lizard misplaced to her environment and open to risk. The young children reading are asked to participate and supply a rhyming word to help keep Lizzy safe. Beautiful tale! <3

Dick has also written two other series of books which include, The Double Rhyme Book Series, and The Keepsake Coloring Story Books. However, The Talk-Along Series was the first reciprocal books recommended to schools. They were also best sellers due to the fact they were so academic with teaching things like vocabulary development, counting, adding, and colors, etc.

Dick Punnett's clever creativity and focus with this particular series was to make learning incredibly fun.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

These adorable books are loved by Moms, Grandmothers, and teachers just as much as they are cherished by the kids. They make excellent gifts and are reasonably priced!

Directly From The Book… So Cute!!!! <3

I want you to know before we start,
Our story has a speaking part.
When you see the dots…
Try guessing the word.
That is the time for YOU to be heard.

I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to write about such an impressive collection of books. Those are books that I’m quite certain will charm the socks off my two grandchildren for sure! Excited to offer the books to them. <3 <3

What truly impressed me was how the author himself, fully illustrated The Keepsake Coloring Book Series with his own drawings of pen and ink. Those paperbacks are particularly expressive and personally made for children as (just as the name says) keepsakes.

Dick Punnett was well known in the schools and gaining popularity now with the general public from all 15 books that he’s authored. Coming from upstate New York, he completed his studies at the Art Center School and Chouinard Art Institute and flourished into a writer/cartoonist for a Hollywood Animation Studio. It just goes to show that any books authored by him are sure to be favored by the kiddos. Dick resides in Ormond Beach, Florida.
