A Boy Called Duct Tape

Christopher Cloud

Price: FREE

I received this review copy and was intrigued by the title, A Boy Called Duct Tape. Too poor to have new sneakers, Pablo keeps his together with duct tape. We soon learn that his riches are his moral values.
This is a great read for kids age 8 to 14. Full of mystery and adventure, it also covers a few of life’s lessons that we should all know.
There are elements of Mark Twain’s Tom Sawyer and John Steinbeck’s The Pearl, but with a twist.
I highly recommend this book.


Pablo Perez is a 12-year-old kid without much going for him. His classmates have dubbed him “Duct Tape” because his tattered discount-store sneakers are held together with…you guessed it, duct tape. He can’t escape the bullying.
Pablo’s luck changes after he finds a $20 gold coin while swimming with his sister in a river near their home. Pablo later buys a $1 treasure map at the county fair. The map shows the route to the “lost treasure” of the notorious outlaw Jesse James. Pablo can’t help but wonder: Is there a link between the map and the gold coin?
He is determined to find out, and he, his 9-year-old sister, Pia, and 13-year-old cousin, Kiki, hire an ill-mannered cave guide and begin a treacherous underground adventure in search of treasure. Their treasure hunt is made more perilous because they are being followed by the evil Blood brothers, who want the treasure for themselves. The Blood brothers will stop at nothing to claim the treasure as their own.

Bedtime story -The Bear Who Could Fly (Kitchi The Bear’ Series)

Rose McKey

Price: FREE

An original story with pictures that make this a truly lovely book. I believe this is the first in a series. I look forward to reading the others. My son says I must get them all, and of course he wants his own Kindle device now too!


“The Bear Who Could Fly” is a special tale about a bear cub, Kitchi, who is told that he might not wake up if he goes into hibernation for weeks. Nukpana, the evil weasel, also tells Kitchi that he will miss out on so much fun during the winter. But bears must hibernate! Kitchi meets the great elk, Tyee, who tells him that if he does fall asleep he will have a special dream about flying, and once he wakes up from this dream he will be braver than even the strongest animals in the forest.

Through having the dream, Kitchi ultimately faces his fear and afterwards faces Nukpana, telling him to leave the young ones in the forest alone and never tell horrid stories again.

The book has been written for children aged 4 to 8 years. Filled with dream-inspiring illustrations, children will easily relate to the characters. The purpose of the story is to help children to learn that sleep time is for dreaming, and that their dreams can make them stronger. But, of course, in order to dream they must first fall asleep without worrying what they will miss out on. The ‘flying’ dream should excite any child, and the story will therefore spur them to close their eyes at bedtime and get ready to soar.

Codley and the Big Storm – Together We Can! (An Inspiring Sea Adventure for Young Children)

Lisl Fair

Price: FREE

If you have ever tried to hold the interest of twin toddlers you will know what I am talking about during this review. What I love about this book and this series, is that the colorful pictures are so vibrant and so identifiable to a young child, that it can capture their attention and not let go. This is one of the few books that my twin toddlers will actually sit through and not lose interest after one minute. I love how inspiring these stories are and that Codley and his pal are always there to lend a hand (er…tentacle…er…fin) to one another in a time of need. I think these books help promote early friend-making to young children and even my older kids seem to like them a lot. I recommend these books. This book was fun to read and I loved watching the kid’s reactions when on every page they uncovered a new sea animal and got excited. Great book.

Stranger Danger

Patricia Stirnkorb

Price: FREE

This books (with accompnying CD) is clean and clear cut. It warns children of what could happen and how to always stay safe by “not going” with strangers or people other than your mom and dad. The music leaves a bit to be desired, but the kids (4 and 6) seemed to enjoy it. A good beginning book about strangers. We also own the Barenstien Bear’s Strangers book, and the page with the mean looking strangers always frightened my kids. They also associated dangerous people with looking mean wich is NOT the case in real life. This Stranger Danger books makes a point to make the strangers look normal. Good place to start young kids.


The Reluctantly written, but absolutely necessary book for today’s boys and girls. This book helps parents talk about a tough subject! How to respond to strangers, and those who aren’t really strangers! Written in a rhyming verse, it hits home with preschoolers and elementary school age children. A must read for every home with children!

The Complete Fairy Tales and Stories [168 Tales in the chronological order of publication]

Hans Christian Andersen

Price: 99 cents

I have been happily surprised while reading these tales. I enjoy reading the ones I can link to with the modern, re-done version such as The Little Mermaid, The Emperors New Clothes, etc. The length of these tales is really good as you can do a little quick reading and complete a story so you don’t lose the thread track. Perfect for reading while waiting at an appointment. These are definitely adult versions as the language would be difficult for kids to follow and there are no pictures. As an avid reader I am currently reading the classics and this one just caught my eye while shopping. Glad I stopped to take a deeper look as I was happily surprised.


This book contains the complete Andersen’s fairy tales and stories in the chronological order of their original publication.

Hans Christian Andersen was a Danish author and poet. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales, a literary genre he so mastered that he himself has become as mythical as the tales he wrote. Andersen’s popularity is not limited to children; his stories—called eventyrs, or “fantastic tales”—express themes that transcend age and nationality.

During his lifetime he was acclaimed for having delighted children worldwide and was feted by royalty. Andersen’s fairy tales, which have been translated into more than 125 languages, have become culturally embedded in the West’s collective consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well. They have inspired motion pictures, plays, ballets, and animated films.
