Sea of Trees: Kids Book Review


Title: Sea of Trees
ISBN: 9781533034106
 Author: Wolfie Smoke
Price: $6.95 Paperback
112 pages | Grades: 4-6
Genre: Children’s Literature
Available: Barnes & Noble | Amazon

Nat and Aric have despised each other ever since they crossed paths. But now they find themselves hopelessly lost in the middle of the woods, farther from home then either of them want to be. They'll have to put aside their differences, or at least not strangle each other, and make it out of the woods together. Or else, they'll drown in the sea of trees.

THOUGHTS

‘Sea of Trees’ is a novel written by Wolfie Smoke. It is a charming little story with plenty of adventure and danger, which help keep it entertaining and suspenseful. This book is about two boys who are kidnapped by an evil group of men who want to sell them and their friends to be slaves across the ocean. The two boys manage to escape, but now must work together to find a way to save their friends while lost in a forest. I feel that it is important to point out that though the story-line may seem a bit dark, it is written in a very child-friendly way.

This story also has a few good morals for children to learn. The two main characters, Nat and Aric, hate each other before the events of the book. This can teach kids that although you may not be friends with someone, it doesn't mean that they are truly bad. It can also teach kids about making the best out of bad situation, like the boys do during their adventures in the book. Over all, I think this is a good book that is filled with adventure. Perfect for the little bookworm, or bookworms, of your family.

Celebrate National Tequila Day With A Nuni Tortilla Toaster!

Get ready to celebrate!  National Tequila Day is coming up on July 24th. Stock up on a fun variety of Blanco, Reposado and Añejo tequilas and bust out your favorite taco hack and impress everyone with your Nuni Tortilla Toaster!  Not that we need an excuse to eat tacos, but this might be the best reason of all.  You couldn’t possibly celebrate National Tequila Day without tacos and you cannot make tacos without the Nuni. Once you experience warming 6 tacos at once to absolute perfection, you will forget how you actually heated tortillas the old-fashioned way.  Seriously, one at a time in a pan is so passé! 


Thanks to Nuni, the perfectly warmed tortilla is just 60 seconds away AND you can warm 6 at once for the whole crew!!  This is a no-brainer!!  With the popularity in tortillas vs. bread and the corn tortilla revolution with the gluten free diets, this appliance is now a must-have for all kitchen counters!

Try your hand at sweet potato tacos or spizy chorizo tacos with corn and poblanos….whatever your taste buds desire, the Nuni Tortilla Toaster will be your taco hero!
  • 6-Slot Capacity: Place 1 to 6 of your favorite corn, flour or even wheat tortillas into the unit. Choose warming setting.
  • Lift Handle To Start: Automatic shut-off deactivates the unit after each toasting cycle. 
  • Rotate To Release: Once the toasting cycle is complete simply rotate the tortillas from the unit. 

Time to get creative with Taco Tuesday.  Put away the pan and plug in Nuni to turn everyday into Taco Tuesday.

Benji and the Giant Kite: Children's Book Review / Giveaway (CLOSED)


Title: Benji and the Giant Kite
ISBN: 978-1605374031
 Author: Alan C. Fox
Illustrator: Eefje Kuijl
Price: $17.95 Hardcover
32 pages | Age: 4-6 years | Grades: Pre-school - 1
Genre: Children’s Literature
Available: Barnes & Noble | Amazon


Benji adores kites. All kinds of kites – big or small, plain or fancy, square or diamond- shaped. He loves flying them at the beach, watching them float high in the sky. One day Benji sees a giant orange kite at the toy store. He wants it more than anything else – ever. But his mom explains that he’ll need to earn the money to buy the kite. So Benji buckles down and weeds the garden for the next two weeks – the vegetables in the morning and the flowers in the afternoon. It seems like he’ll never be done.



Finally the special day arrives, and Benji’s mom hands him the giant orange kite of his dreams. At the beach, Benji lets his kite soar higher and higher with every gust of wind. He watches it rise above the people, the hotdog stand, and even the houses beyond. Soon the kite becomes a distant speck in the sky. Benji is thrilled. But when it’s time to pull the kite down and head back home, Benji can’t bear to do it. He wants to set the kite free to fulfill its destiny among the clouds. Benji lets the twine go and the kite disappears into the sunset sky. The kite may still be up there yet.
