Today I have two new books from Carole P. Roman to review. First. One to Ten: Squirrel’s Bad Day. In a forest, Squirrel drops his acorns in the river and he is very sad. Rabbit teaches him how to deal with the problem. He tells Squirrel to rate the problem from one to ten. One being no so bad and ten being the absolute worst. Other forest animals give examples how they turned their different situations where it seems to be the wort and then they figured out how to turn it around. For example, when a game of baseball was interrupted by rain (a 10) turns in to a game of jumping in the puddles (a 1). I enjoyed this book as a story to help children deal with difficult situation and draw positives from it.
Second, If You were me and lived in…Israel is a journey through the beautiful country in the Middle East. The readers learn a brief history of the country as well as the modern day food, culture and life in Israel. Common celebrations such as Purim, the celebration in remembrance of Queen Esther. Is discussed as well as the unique reading form in Israel. They read from right to left as opposed to the rest of the world who reads left to right. This book is another great addition to an outstanding series.
I highly recommend One to Ten: Squirrel’s Bad Day and If You were me and lived in…Israel for any family and school libraries. They are highly educational, fun and enjoyable!
Both titles are available
in paperback and on the Kindle
