Wisdom Tales: Book Review

I received these two great books to read and review from Wisdom Tales Press, a company dedicated to providing great books full of moral lessons for children and adult alike.   They have a great selection of award winning books  from great authors and artists for children and teens.  They have so many books that I would love to read with my children  during the school break this year. I brought this book during our three days trip to California last month so the kids will have something to read during our long flights.  
The first book that I would like to discuss is the "Never Say a Mean Word Again" which is very important for children to learn at a very young age.   This book teaches children how to deal with kids who say mean things to you.  Normally, when someone  say mean thing to you, you tend to retaliate by   doing the same but in this book, the boy  handled it so well by  setting a good example to the boy who said mean things to him.  My daughter love this book and it gave her a lesson to be more understanding  to her brother even at times when he annoys her  so much.  
"Never Say A Mean Word Again" is a  A Tale from Medieval Spain by Jacqueline Jules and illustrated by Durga Yael Bernhard.  It is a  charming story of conflict resolution between two boys, one Jewish and one Muslim, that was inspired by the real-life actions of the Jewish poet Samuel Ha-Nagid. With today’s bullying problem, this is a wonderful story for all children today.

You can watch the  video below for it's short introduction.


The second book is the  Horse Raid: The Making of a Warrior by Paul Goble. This was riginally published under the name Lone Bull’s horse raid in 1973 (the year I was born, wow!)  I have always  fascinated with the Native American history so this one  answers to a lot of questions a I have in mind prior to reading the book.  This book is an advanced copy but this will be released this month so you can grab a copy when it is available in the bookstore or online already.
In this book I learned that during  the tribes of the American plains in the Buffalo Days of the pre-reservation life, horse raiding was a chance for men to show their courage and bravery in battle. This depicts the bravery of a young warrior who wanted to prove his worth by joining the warriors on a raid against the Crow.  This book really entertained my thoughts during our flight to California.  It made the time fly by so fast.
If you are looking for  great books to buy for your children, I highly recommend  Wisdom Tale Press.  They  have a great selection of  books that  your kids can learn lessons to.  You can check them out by visiting their website or by following them via Pinterest and  Facebook.  Thank you so much Wisdom Tales Press for these  books!

Space Hero Towel from Kidorable

My son was very excited when I showed him this Space Hero Towel that Kidorable have sent me for review.  Public swimming pools  officially opened here in the  area during Memorial Day so he was very excited to use it.  Unfortunately, I did not go when they went for a swim at the pool so I was not able to  take pictures of him using the towel.  Anyway, I took some photos when  it first arrived and  he modeled it for me.
Our son love anything with machine in it so having the space theme on a towel is a big plus for him.  This towel comes in two sizes, small and medium.  The absorbent, soft cotton towels makes lounging by the pool and beach, or drying off after a bath, extra fun. I would definitely bring this on our Maryland trip next month as we are going to Ocean City for our daughter's birthday.
You can buy this towel for $40 at the website or via amazon with a free shipping when your order reaches up to a hundred dollars.  I love Kidorable products as they are high quality made.  What separates their products to other products  in the store is the craftsmanship and customization.  The designs are just an absolute winner  in the kids' eyes.  MY kids love their products as well!
If you are looking for a  unique design for your children, nephews, nieces, grand kids, or friend's children, Kidorable has so many things that you ill absolutely love.  Thank you so much once again Kidorable for this wonderful opportunity of working with you!
