I was introduced to an author by the name of David Michael Slater. I had the opportunity to review a few of his childrens’ books. The titles I received include Missy Swiss, Comin’ Through, The Sharpest Tool, Flour Girl, Cheese Louise, and Jacques & Spock. His books are fun and teach valuable lessons! Plus, there are questions for more discussion at the back of the books.
Missy Swiss was a cute book! I think it’s a great book for Elementary aged kids, as it was a little long for the younger kids. In this book, Missy Swiss wants to the “Big Cheese” in the fridge, just like her hero, Cheese Louise. When the family goes on vacation, she takes the chance to show what she’s got! Problems arise when the plug gets pulled and everyone is in danger of spoiling! Will she learn the true meaning of a hero before it’s too late?
Comin’ Through was a great book! Jeremy is the new kid in school and wants to fit in. However, he becomes popular for the wrong reasons, trying to fit in with the cool kids at school. When he realizes that his actions has hurt somebody else, will he change? This is a great book about right and wrong and “comin’ through.”
The Sharpest Tool in the Shed was another cute book! Nick is the youngest tool in the shed and nobody listens to what he has to say and thinks he’s dull. However, when a fire erupts on the farm, only this brave little saw can help! Soon, he’ll be known as a hero and “Sharpest Tool in the Shed!”
Flour Girl was another book I received. It was a little complex for my little guys. However, if you have an Elementary aged child who has divorced parents that are getting remarried, this is a good book for them. In Flour Girl, Sophie and her dad have a great relationship and love to cook together. However, her dad announces he’ll be adding another ingredient to his family recipe. He’ll be marrying his friend Maggie and Sophie will be the flower girl, but all she hears is “flour girl.” Now, Flour Girl does everything she can to ruin the recipe!
Cheese Louise was another cute book, but again was geared more towards Elementary-aged kids. I loved the artwork in the pages! Cheese Louise is new in the refrigerator and is worried she’ll never be chosen, because who chooses a cheese full of holes? Disaster strikes and Cheese Louise has a chance to save Humphrey Yogurt before he goes bad. Read about how she proves to be a cheese worth wanting!
Jacques and Spock was another cute book! Jacques and Spock are sock brothers and have never been more than a foot apart before. This is until the day they were separated in a laundry accident! Spock was terrified, while Jacques was excited to be away from Spock for the first time. You’ll be laughing your socks off after you read what happens in this hilarious adventure of two mismatched socks.
