The Color of Freedom

Michelle Isenhoff

Price: FREE

The pacing is excellent, and there is always another interesting turn. The historical backdrop fits in seamlessly, and it’s obvious that the author did a lot of research to make the book so accurate.

Abigail A. Boyd

***Note from Ashley: This is a Young Adult book, and like most books that we feature, this book has not been previewed. It looks like a good selection, but please perform due diligence before handing it over to your child.
Meadow MacKenna hates the British. Turned off her Irish farm and forced to book passage to America as an indentured servant, she understands the rebel desire to throw off the yoke of King George’s rule. But is freedom worth the cost? Is it even possible?

When her new master turns abusive, Meadow disguises herself as a boy and flees. But she cannot outrun the political conflict. She’s moved by the courage, pride and determination of the American patriots, but their Puritan roots run deep. Will liberty apply to Negroes, to Quakers, to Jews–to Irish Catholics like her? Or will majority rule serve the majority? Perhaps the colonists had simply invented a new kind of tyranny. She cannot commit to such a cause. Neither can she prevent the war from claiming the souls of her father and the man she loves.

THANK YOU, MEILING Family Love, Rules and Courtesy Children’s Picture Book

Linda Talley

Price: FREE

I recently read “Thank You Meiling” to my third grade class after reading Amy Tan’s, “Moon Lady”. The text was easy for them to understand. It blended a story about a duck who needed to learn how to share and information about the Chinese celebration of Moon Festival. It kept their interest and also informed without being just “factual”. I am going to purchase a few copies to present as gifts to our daughter’s teachers each year during autumn (Moon Festival time).

M. Robertazzi

Picture Book for reading with the younger child – ages 3-6

This version of THANK YOU, MEILING includes all the luminous illustrations just waiting to enchant children of any age, and especially the read-to set.

If the text-only version is better for your needs, then please click on THANK YOU, MEILING in the Text-Only Version for the serious young reader – ages 6-9.

Happy reading in either Version.

THANK YOU, MEILING will help promote courtesy in young readers’ daily lives as well as introduce them to Chinese culture.

COURTESY – THINKING OF OTHERS

Visit a Chinese village for lessons in common courtesy.

On the fifteenth day of the eighth lunar month, the Song household will celebrate the Chinese Moon Festival. In preparation for this event, the boy Song Hai sets off on a shopping expedition, accompanied by an ill-mannered duck named Meiling. So begins this story of far-away customs and everyday courtesy.

Song Hai and Meiling visit the bustling town market where eager shoppers buy paper lanterns, fat mooncakes, and baskets of melons, crab apples, grapes, and other fruits that are as round as the big harvest moon.

Meiling learns all about the coming Moon Festival as she follows Song Hai on his special errands. But more important, she learns a thing or two about common courtesy-waiting her turn, saying “please” and “thank you,” helping others, and sharing.

Author Linda Talley’s whimsical story is illustrated by award-winning artist Itoko Maeno whose vivid watercolors capture the sights of a small town in southeast China-the narrow residential lanes, the marketplace with its colorful stalls, and the tidy courtyard where Song Hai and his family celebrate the Moon Festival.

As the luminous full moon rises high into the sky on this special night, Meiling enjoys her own festival treat, but not before demonstrating that she has learned her lessons in courtesy. She has learned to “stop and think of others.”

A SURPRISE and added bonus is the “Enrichment Information” which includes lots of facts about The People’s Republic of China, Chinese Writing and Language, Chinese Names, as well as the Moon Festival, Phases of the Moon, Inhabitants of the Chinese Moon, and best of all, Mooncakes! This is fascinating detail that did not make it into the story itself, but is very rich in interesting description.

A second big plus is the “Letter to Parents and Educators” which includes many relevant questions and comments to facilitate conversation with young readers about the message of the story…the importance of courtesy to others.

So even though on the surface this is just an engaging story for children, it is also truly helpful in a real way.

MAKING THE CASE FOR CHARACTER EDUCATION

If you are tired of bullying, teasing, youth violence, gangs, vandalism, drug abuse, sexual misconduct…

If you are tired of the crisis with our older youth…

If you want to help make a difference one tiny step at a time…

Then this is the eBook for your children ages 3-9.

Read WITH your children and grandchildren, discuss the concept and message…

and know that you are part of the movement sweeping America to bring back our important values by restoring character education in our homes and schools.

I Love Baby Animals – Fun Children’s Picture Book with Amazing Photos of Baby Animals

David Chuka

Price: FREE

What do you call a book that teaches children of all ages the names of animals? I call that “What Do You Call A Baby Lion”.
This book is very well laid out. The photos are colorful an the book is easy to understand. For the young and the young at heart.
I highly recommend,a must buy for those with young children.

Richard Porter

Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers’ Favorite

“I Love Baby Animals (formerly titled ‘What Do You Call a Baby Lion?’)” by David Chuka is a children’s book which may be of more interest to the adult reading it, at least at first, than to the child to whom he is reading it. It starts with a young boy stating that his mom just had a new baby, so he wondered what different animals called their babies.

If your interest has been piqued, you should pick up a copy of this little book. The photography alone is worth the price, as it is of exceptional quality for a children’s book. The text is very minimal, with your child’s interest maintained by the pictures and the sometimes funny sounding baby names. This would be a good book in which you read all the baby names the first time through, then gradually drop out a few at a time and urge your child to recall the names. It could prove to be very educational, as well as helpful to develop a good memory in your child. The author did a very competent job of researching the information in this book, and it is sure to bring many hours of entertainment to both you and your child.

It has got my whole-hearted recommendation!

Diana M. Hockley
David Chuka has crafted an excellent educational tool for small children. I enjoyed the way he “cartooned” the question and then put an endearing picture of the baby on the next page. I especially loved the hedgehog.

Dr. Leland D. Benton
I am familiar with this author since I buy everything he publishes. He puts on good books and offers children some pretty nice entertainment coupled with education. This book is most definitely worth your time and investment.
