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!
