About the Author:

Review:

I rarely review books by self-published authors, but when I saw the covers for these books, I made an exception. These are board books that have a particularly sunny and cheery point of view. Each of these three books takes a subject and then spends time exploring many facets of it. Blanket will surprise readers with a touch of humor and then ends with bedtime. Pets talks about a wide variety of pets and ends with an emphasis on connection and love. Yard, which is my favorite of the three, explores what children will find in their own yard as well as some of the wonder of wider nature. The illustrations of the books are done in a flat, friendly style where everyone is happy. Filled with bright colors and done very simply, the illustrations are just right for the toddler or infant. The books are written in rhyming pairs that work well, making reading aloud easy. A particularly successful series of self-published board books, these books speak to the quality of some of the self-published work on the market. They have a nice blend of modern illustration and timeless subjects. Appropriate for ages 1-3. --Tasha Saecker - Waking Brain Cells blog

This is a fun, fun book. I love the bright colors, and the simplistic drawings are perfect for young eyes. The text helps create the action rather than the image. Don't be surprised if your toddler wants to race outside after reading this book! These are books kids will want to "read" by themselves and they are perfectly sized for their hands. Educational Themes: There are lots of ways to use this book. Start "doing" some of the things the kids do (like digging in the mud), and use the imagery for teaching vocabulary, from colors to objects (squirrels), and also early counting (how many butterflies do we see?). --The Reading Tub Family Bookshelf

Hutton s charming little board book, the newest in a series, encourages young children to explore the pleasures of real books with real pages. On his website, Cincinnati Children s Hospital pediatrician Hutton, backed by multiple studies and research, talks about the importance of real books and nonelectronic play in the development of very young brains. Children are not small adults. Their brains are different. Their bodies are different. Their spirit is different. Their needs are different, he says. Hutton would like to see all children stay screen-free until 3, and he recommends judicious use of electronics thereafter. He may have crafted his children s board-book series with that science- and research-fueled viewpoint in mind, but don t expect a heavy-handed approach. His new entry in the endearing series is illustrated with joyful color and adorable renderings of a snug, childcentric world. Its celebratory simplicity conveys Hutton s books are wonderful message with a feather-light touch. Each page features clear and brief text made interesting with color changes and small variations in style. ( Adventure books: pirate ship! Zooming cars! / Lullabies yawning moon, twinkling stars. ) One page is even a find all the books game. In Kang s peaceful illustrations, children cozy up with a dad for read-aloud time and go to sleep with a mom s bedtime story. They read under a tree, on the floor, on a picnic blanket and on a bench with a squeaky mouse. They learn that books can be about anything dreams can plot. If that means [h]appy hippos driving trucks okay, why not? Gentle, joyful encouragement for young readers and pre-readers to discover the rewards of a good book. --Kirkus Reviews
