Book title : THOMAS AND THE LILY POND

Author : Jane Whiteoak

Genre :  Children’s book – friendship, social skills and causes, growing up

Amazon Kindle Store : http://www.amazon.com/Thomas-Lily-Pond-ebook/dp/B008LG0T0G

My review : 5 out of 5 starsI recommend this Ebook for your kindle or reading on your IPad, tablets or other android devices

Review in detail : This is a children’s book with a delightful short story featuring a group of animals and birds as interesting and unique characters. This story can be read to your children or nephew/niece, grandchildren in the age group 4+ to 6 years. Children between 7 to 10 years old can read this wonderful story by themselves.

A group of animals and birds lived a harmonious and happy life in a forest with a lily pond. Each were assigned a specific duty to keep the forest safe, secure, filled with food and maintain the harmony. Each animal worked very well as a team member. There was Thomas – the friendly turtle, Rupert – the big white rabbit, Roman – the strong helpful raccoon, Sammy – the elderly red squirrel, Spike – the skunk who patrolled the forest at night, Binnie- the blue jay, Princeton – the protective porcupine, Corinna – the chickadee and Winston – the old wise owl.

Every animal respected and loved one another and gave space to grow and shared food with each other. One day a bull frog named Bruno arrived at the Lily pond amidst this peaceful group. Bruno was a cunning frog and he wanted to take the whole of Lily pond as his home where Thomas used to live. After his arrival, things changed in the forest, specially for Thomas.

To know what happened to the forest, I’d recommend you to read this wonderful story which has a touch of excitement, emotions and interesting adventures!

The story is simple, focusing concisely on each special trait of the animal character and gently directs the reader to the core issue at hand. It is easy to read to a child and focuses on the realistic aspects of bullying by a manipulative and cunning member in a group and how to thwart such bullying attempts at an early age. The story also shows the detrimental effects of surrendering to a bully and getting conned by his false compliments, thereby questioning and suspecting own friends at the word of a bully.

I think this sort of book is very much required in today’s diverse society, specially when cases of bullying are often heard of and witnessed in schools beginning from play school right up to the higher classes. From an early age, children ought to know who’s a bully and who’s not; and this book successfully and gently reveals this aspect to the children and how to confront and thwart bullying unitedly.

Therefore, this book encourages to learn team work, helping people in society, unity, compassion, forgiveness, love for your neighbor and other such aspects that keep the humanity alive in human beings.

I loved the story and I plan to read it to my niece as well! Author Jane Whiteoak should continue writing such meaningful stories and entertain both the parents and their children!

“As the name of the E-book suggests the poems/poetry has been very soulfully depicted in each of the poems written by Payal Roy. She has been extremely thoughtful and sincere in her application of vocabulary to express her creative thoughts. This is a wonderful rendition!
Looking forward to see many more of them(poems, prose) coming! ”

“Wonderfully written poems..Each poem has its own character…I just loved reading those beautifully expressed poetry.. It is a great piece of poetry !!
Looking forward to read more poems by Payal Roy….”
“In her piece titled “A Child in You,” she encourages the reader to quit being so bored/boring and to remember that you only live once and should enjoy every moment of it. The poem invites you to remember all of the simple joys of your childhood running on green lawns and seeing the magic in nature.
Many of the poems include elements of nature such as sky, grass, flowers, and trees and most of them talk about life being precious and to have hope and enjoy the beautiful world by appreciating it each and every day. Among the inspiring photos are images of the sunset over Lotus Temple in India, a beach in France, the countryside in Prague, a mountain in Spain, clouds in Poland and flowers in the Netherlands.
In “Light,” Roy contemplates light being a flicker of hope, a true spirit, a lack of ignorance, or a thirst for knowledge. In this collection of more than 40 poems, you’ll find pieces titled, “Reach Out,” “Colours,” “Saga of Life,” “A Never Ending Hope,” and “In a Nutshell” among many others.”

When I began writing Memoirs: The Soulful Recollection, I thought–lets write a non fiction prose of a memoir. However, being a poet at heart which I discovered way back during my childhood years, I was not at all surprised when my thoughts turned into a flow of words which composed a variety of poems in my wordpad.

To me, friendship, nature, travel to new lands , and spending some time in solitude are precious. I wrote such poems based on my real life experiences in friendship, and my continuous quest for self discovery. I feel blessed with all the bitter-sweet moments and memories my life has bestowed me, as they have helped me to open up and write that, which was in my heart for a long time.

I love to travel and admire nature in all her beauty and splendor , hence nature played a  very important role in inspiring me to write about her in my different poetic moods.

The poems are long and short, sometimes rhymed and unrhymed, but are lucid I believe, as I feel every person is a poet at heart ; and if he or she sets her heart to read or write a poem, it can be done. Poetry is beauty and an enigma in itself with its tender and ornamental touch which weaves words of the heart and the mind together to form a creative composition.

Poetry is my inspiration along with nature to look at life in its various shades – happy, sad, soulful, mournful, joyous and rebellious. Have a good read!

A little poetry that flows through my mind, I have conjured up in this post exclusively for you dear friend–

ENJOY LIFE

_____________

Seasons come, seasons go,

Time flies by, yet it holds,

Memories of love, memories of friends,

Cherished and cajoled,

In its spectral folds;

Time spent, never returns…

Bitter-sweet memories,

From this kaleidoscope we learn–

Life is a journey, with

Twists and turns,

With joy and sorrow,

Laughter and fun.

Life seems empty,

Without friends and love,

Life seems bleak,

Without the ones we love,

So, care and share

Your joy and tears,

With your friends and peers,

With no fear.

For, our life is short,

Yet it is so endless,

‘Coz even after we’re long gone,

Life will just..move on…

Thanks for stopping by this post 🙂

Metaphors of Life-an excerpt

Metaphors of life — this is a short excerpt from my latest contemporary poetry ebook, that has a collection of non fiction, inspirational poems and articles based on my life’s memoirs about friendship, travel, nature and making choices at every cross-road of life, which are inspiring me to unravel the ongoing quest about life.

I post this excerpt from my e-bookMemoirs: The Soulful Recollection , and your comments are highly welcome for this post .

LIFE, as we all know is a journey…a journey through crests and troughs of emotions, through small and large potholes of troubles, over suddenly created walls of obstacles, through jungles of competition, cutting through thorns, yet, heartily feeling the fragrance of the hard-earned victories; swimming in dark waters of sorrow, struggling to find an anchor…getting it unexpectedly, and swimming over to the much priced banks of joy…

Getting decorated with ornamental flowers of love, tasting the delicious manna of care and affection, in evergreen gardens of peace, wishing to remain in a utopian paradise of hope and faith for eternity…the goodwill of our deeds guiding us like the guardian angels, those fruits of knowledge looking so fresh in those enchanted trees of harmony which stand on strong roots of support on vulnerable grounds of desires and expectations…and stars of fortune shower colourful beads of memories which splash and twinkle on the ever winding roads to our destinies…

Whom we meet…whom we leave…who go away…who return again…who’re lost forever…and, who always remain in our hearts till the end of time.
