The Wondrous Tree  (A Christmas Story for Kids)
The Wondrous Tree (A Christmas Story for Kids)
Price: £0.77

5.0 out of 5 stars Merry, Merry Oak Tree, 20 Dec 2014
Have you ever been lonely or wondered if anyone would be your good friend? Most of us feel like that at times, and this is normal, but it does feel so good to know you are loved and needed.

An oak tree lived by itself away from other trees or other things. The tree was very lonely, and was uncertain what was its purpose. Most oak trees have leaves and grow acorns, which drop to the ground, and often become other oak trees. But this oak tree was young and nothing happened. Bees came to stay for awhile, but then left. A bird came and had little birds, but they all flew away. One day a lot of wood appeared, and building started. A house was built and a family came to stay in the winter. On the porch was a tree that was filled with lights and ornaments, but this tree was not real, it was fake. The oak tree became a little dispirited, until something wonderful happened. When you read this book you will discover the adventures of the oak tree.

The author, Gramps Doodlebug, has written a lovely story about a tree looking for friends. The illustrations are bright and vibrant, and they depict the adventures of the oak tree. Parents/teachers will enjoy reading this story to their children. It has a wonderful lesson to be learned. The children will have questions about oak trees and acorns, and when do oak trees grow acorns, anyway? One of my favorite books for children is one that educate children and keep their minds turning with questions. A fun and lovely book for all. Note: a complimentary copy of this book was provided for use and review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect For My Hair, 19 Dec 2014
A modified bob cut is perfect for me, but it does require some upkeep. I prefer my hair to have a lot if body. I have fine hair, it used to be very thick, but know it has thin bed a bit, but it still looks full with a great cut. I have the perfect stylist who spends a great deal of time with each cut, and this particular situ,e fits me well.

In order to provide the fullness I like, I use rollers. Hot rollers at times, but my hair usually loses the fullness after half a day. I have found that self grip rollers are perfect. This kit requires no pins or clips. There are 31 rollers in a zip pack. The large pink rollers create looser fuller curls, so I use those on the top 1/3 of my hair. The green and yellow rollers provide more bounce. I use them on the second 1/3 of my hair, and then use the yellow rollers on the bottom row. There are more than enough curlers in this kit. I wash my hair, blow it fairly dry and then put in the rollers. I apply a little spritz for body and in thirty minutes, I have full body in my hair. This lasts all day. And I am extremely pleased with these rollers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Family Game, 17 Dec 2014
This review is from: Munchkin Deluxe Card Game (Toy)
My grandson, 9, received this game as a present last year, and we all had so much fun playing the game, that my 11 year ok'd granddaughter wanted the game. We are a family who enjoys playing games and board games. We started playing when my children were young. I used to play Monopoly and Parcheesi when I was young, and we would play for hours. Every time we get together, we like to play board games, and this has become a family favorite.

This game is fairly simple to learn, and there are not too many pieces. There are cards, pawns, player cards, game board, rules, and die. There is a game board to keep cards in place, and colored pawns that move on the game board as you level up. A card goes with each pawn, to make it easy to remember who is what color. Munchkin is a card game about dungeon adventure. This is a fun, family game, and I would not put an upper age level on it. I played the game with an eighty year old.

5.0 out of 5 stars That's What Friends Are For, 17 Dec 2014
Have you ever lost something that was special to you, your special blanket or pillow? When you lose it, it is very difficult to remain happy.

Brian the Bunny had a wonderful life, everything he loved was within sight. His cozy house, his warm bed, his fluffy white pillow, his carrot toothpaste and he loved carrot cake. One warm, sunny day, Brian the Bunny was fluffing his pillow and put it on the window, suddenly a breeze came by and moved the pillow to the grass. Along came bird, who thought what a beautiful pillow, I can use this, and off she went. When Brian looked up, he'd realized his pillow was missing, and when you read this book, you will discover what Brian Bunny did next.

The author, Nadav Sham, has written a delightful book about friends. He likes to write books that educate children, and give them something to think about. This book is written in rhyme, one of the best ways to write a children's book. The illustrations are bright and colorful,depicting Brian Bunny and all of his friends. You get to meet all of The friends, and this first book turns into a series, featuring all of the friends. Parents/ teachers will enjoy reading this book to their children. The children may have discussions about friends and what a joy they are. That's what friends are for. A complimentary copy of this book was provided for use and review.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Time Was Had By All, 16 Dec 2014
Has someone ever forgotten your birthday or have you ever wondered what to do for someone else's birthday party? If so or if not, this will be a fun book for you to read.

It was Rhino's birthday, and he was looking for someone to remember his day. But no one was coming by with good wishes. In fact all of his friends, the lion, the ant, the snake were all wondering what to do for Rhino to celebrate, and what to give him for a present. They all had ideas but nothing to seemed to work until Larry the Lion came up with some good ideas. When you read this book, you will discover the adventures of Rhino and his friends.

The author, Leela Hope, had written a lovely book in rhyme, which is my favorite kind of book. Parents/teachers will enjoy reading this book to the heir children,and the children will have discussions about birthday parties and what are good presents, and how to have fun. The illustrations are bright and vibrant and depict the celebration of Rhino's birthday. A good time was had by all. Note: a complimentary copy if this book was provided for use and review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow, 14 Dec 2014
Do you ever put things off so you can do it another time? Many people do this, and it is OK once in awhile, but if you continue to put things off, you may run into problems.

Amanda is a nice little girl. She lives with her family, her mom and dad, her sister and her brother. She was an energetic little girl until one day, she started putting things off. Her brother asked her to read him a book about pirates, but she said later. Her sister asked her to help make a birthday card for their father, but Amanda said she would do it tomorrow. She even told her mother she would help her later. One night she had a dream, and when you read this book you will understand the adventures of Amanda .

The author, Shelley Admont, has written a delightful story. She likes to write stories for children that are fun and interesting, and include lessons learned. The illustrations in this book are vibrant and colorful, depicting Amanda's adventures. Parents/teachers will enjoy reading this book to their children. The children will recognize their own times when they put something off until later. They can talk about this with other children or their parents. Lessons learned are a wonderful method to educate children. Note: a complimentary copy was provided for use and review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Set Of Pens, 14 Dec 2014
My granddaughter is very creative, and she loves to use her artistic bent. She has almost every type of pen and pencil, but she did not have these washable glitter pens. This his an excellent buy.

The colors are all very well done. The glitter really is in 3D, it sir this jumps off the paper. My granddaughter loves this set. She has not had any of the problems of the pens plugging, and she is joe using it as she decorates clothing designs. Glitter is the 'in' thing now, and you can find glitter everywhere. This is a fun set of pens, and is used daily.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Loved Addition, 14 Dec 2014
This review is from: Gund Grumpy Cat (Toy)
My granddaughter collects stuffies, and she requested this Grumpy Cat Stuffed Toy. Unless you have been living in a cave, you have seen Grumpy Cat on a myriad of cards, cartoons, coffee cups, and he appears on Facebook, daily, where he gas 5 million fans. Just look at his eyes and his grumpy mouth, don't you feel like that at times?

Grumpy Cat is 9" height x 6" length x 6" width, he is a soft, cuddly cat, and with that race a cat to love. Gund has a superb reputation, and it lives up to it with this Grumpy Cat. However, the more you look at Grumpy Cat, the less grumpy you feel. This cat will be a well lved addition to my granddaughter's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Different, 13 Dec 2014
Some people don't look like we do, some may be very short, or too thin or too fat or too tall. What do you do when you see someone who looks different than you do?

The friends in the forest, Brian the bunny, Donna the duck, Ted the tortoise, Betty the bird, and Sarah the sheep were all in a good mood. Today was a free day, and they could all play games and eat a picnic. They got to their game field, and set everything up to play football. They started their game, when all of a sudden, they saw someone very unusual coming down the hill. Gail the giraffe, had come to play. She has a very long neck and very long legs. She also has brown spots all over her body. The friends all looked at her, and thought to themselves how strange she looked. She might be faster than they were,she could see further, so when Gail asked if she could play, they ignored her. This hurt Gail's feelings and after trying a couple of times to play, she went off and cried. When you read this book, you will see what happens and what the friends did.

The author, Nadav Sham, was a tall young boy, and was often excluded from playing with friends because he was different. He wanted to share his experiences with children, so he wrote this story. Parents/teachers will enjoy reading this book to their children. The children will be able to discuss how they act when other children try to join their games. A good lesson learned. The author has written this book in rhyme. Rhyme is the best kind of book for children, it is the most fun to hear those rhyming words. The illustrations are bright and colorful, and they depict the adventures of the friends. Lessons learned is one of the best kind of books for children. A complimentary copy was provided for use and review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ketchup With Grown Up Taste, 12 Dec 2014
This is ketchup with a grown up taste. Made from fresh tomatoes and select spices that the makers at Stonewall say are a secret recipe. This ketchup tastes so good, on a burger fresh from the grill, there is nothing better, or dunking French fries in this ketchup brings these foods to a higher level.

Yes, this ketchup is more expensive than the every day kind we usually use,but once you have tried this ketchup, it is very difficult to go back to the other. Your children may not notice the difference, but an adult certainly will. There is something about the fresh taste, that makes the other ketchups filled with chemicals, so over that.

This ketchup makes a delightful Christmas present or stocking stuffer. What a wonderful surprise to find this in your stocking on Christmas morning. My relatives are going to be very happy.
