Ten Sheep to Sleep by Nidhi Kamra and Eugene Ruble (Illustrator)

Lucy’s Review

A creative bed time story for young children. I enjoyed the way the sheep came alive in the child’s mind and how she solved the problem of counting too many sheep. The book is wonderfully illustrated with fantastic details on every page and will entertain children and adults alike (thinking about what they count to get to sleep) It will also help children with learning to count in a fun manner.

Dreams Can Come True by Daniel Britton

Review

I read this short fairy tale to my 7 year old and he absolutely loved it. The book is superbly written and shows just how dreams can come true with the right advice, hard work and a bit of luck. The theme of entrepreneurship is evident throughout and Tom (the main character) is a fantastic role model for children not to give up and chase their dreams. The illustrations are excellent and support the story throughout. Recommended.
