4.0 out of 5 stars Good and quick Read, October 23, 2012

the book 12 Precious Anecdotes From Life by Payal Roy is a book of short stories that are connected by the characters within it. though this book is not dramatic or flashy it is a wonderful read. Each story is a look at a moment in time and is written so that not only do the characters learn something about them self and life but you as the reader looking in also get to come away with a lesson or two. i have to say also this was one of those books that for me was what i consider to be a quick read under two hours from start to finish.Over all a good book and worth a little of your time to go read and enjoy. Two thumbs up for this one.

I found this short book to be a delight. It was interesting to see how the characters interrelated to one another and the truths behind the stories can not be denied.

The truths should be kept in the forefront of all our minds and live in our hearts.

Dear friends and book lovers,

Today I will post a review for the children’s book Thomas and the Lily Pond by  popular children’s author Jane Whiteoak.

Thomas_bk

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!

A warm welcome to all visitors stopping by my blog. I am an author and a poet and have been writing and publishing books in not so common genres. Why? Coz, I see loads of YA, Fantasy and Paranormal series of books in the bookshelves of several online stores everyday and it seems as if they would nearly overflow off the shelf.

That’s why I chose to write in not so common genres– as merely selling the books has never been my agenda. I always looked out for topics that would create an underlying message within my stories, and let us rethink and revalue moments, facts and situations that would be precious to us always. Hence I present you with my latest collection of 12 short stories titled 12 Precious Anecdotes from Life. Download it for FREE today and over this weekend of Aug 24, Aug 25 and Aug 26.
