Little Moments of Love (Book Review)

Leave a comment Standard

A wonderful collection of comics by the darling Catana Chetwynd, showcasing the quirky side of love. Whether you fully relate, or are still waiting on that special someone to enter your life, giggles can be let loose throughout this collection.

I first read Chetwynd’s comics on social media sites like Instagram about a year ago, so when I saw she was getting published, I just had to check it out. I got this as an ARC through Netgalley.com and the publication date is June 19, 2018.

I feel like this would be great to flip through with a significant other, snuggled up on the couch. Or, it can be read alone. Even if you don’t relate to everything, it’s still a fun and silly book and a great way to pass time.

4/5 Stars

Comics for a Strange World (Book Review)

Leave a comment Standard

This is a collection of comics about a strange world, not unlike our own. Despite the ghosts, talking animals, and “the general absence of any coherent laws of nature,” the stories are ones we can relate to and understand, after all, that is the original goal.

I finished this collection of comics in a single sitting but one can really stop and come back at any point. The book is divided into five sections: The Human Experience, Social Creatures, Changes, A Strange World, and Thoughts on Things. Some comics hit close to home and really made me think, while others just left me giggling. Reza Farazmand’s hyper self-aware sense of humor is an acquired taste, but one I quite enjoy.

I read this as an ARC through NetGalley.com. The expected release date is October 24, 2017. Comics for a Strange World can be preordered here:

 

Fowl Language: The Struggle is Real (Book Review)

Leave a comment Standard

I’ve seen these comics around Instagram for quite a while now. They’ve helped me chuckle through dull days, so when I saw the full book was a Netgalley ARC, I just had to read it.

I flew through this in a single day and I really enjoyed the comics. Brian Gordon uses his own experiences as a father in writing these adorable comics. His children are played by the adorable pink and yellow ducklings.

This series is great for both parents and the everyday adult. I really enjoyed reading it. It’s cute, it’s funny, and it’s a breeze to get through.

The expected publications date is October 10th, 2017. Pre-orders are available on Amazon:

A touching story about a young girl and the fun she has with her grandmother. This is a great book for reading with your little ones, especially before bedtime.

 

This is a fun short story about a boy and his grandfather baking together. It’s perfect for reading as a teacher with a young class, or as a parent (or grandparent) reading to their child.

From the brilliant mind of Irene Smalls and Cathy Ann Johnson, comes this wonderful reading pair that you can enjoy with your favorite little ones.

I read these two stories through Netgalley.com in exchange for honest reviews.

Ira Crumb Makes a Pretty Good Friend (Book Review)

Leave a comment Standard

Ira Crumb is new in town and that means he needs some new friends, but when his plans for showing what a great friend he’d make fail, he starts to feel like he’ll be all alone. That is, until he meets Malcolm, someone who knows exactly where Ira’s coming from.

This is the perfect book to read with your little ones, whether they’re just starting school for the first time, or they’ve experienced a big change. As a preschool teacher, I think this is a great “first week of school” kind of story.
