FULL-COLOR PICTUREBOOK, 8.5" X 11" (JUST $15.95!)
KAGM talk show host Diane Anderson gives it both thumbs up:
"This is a wonderful book!"
Denver professional storyteller Ellen Arbough thrills:
"This is a great story for children who need a boost to their self-esteem. And it appeals
to all who love animals. It teaches a valuable lesson without being preachy."
And grandmothers love it too, like Peggy P. of Albuquerque:
"Morgan, our 6-year-old just LOVED the book! She said it was a great story.
And she's a real book lover!"
David Steinberg of The Albuquerque Journal gushed:
"It's cute! Clever! Colorful! 'Goat' keeps boredom at bay!"
"Alexandra Artigas' illustrations are bright and bold."
"The story...will play well with parents who might use a few antidotes
for their children's summer lament of 'I'm bored.'"
Rick DeReyes, KOB-TV Personality, praised Rebecca for its
"Creative storytelling by a master storyteller! Kids will relate to this story of animals
and a state fair. It's a wonderful read for kids!"
Inez Elementary School 1st Grade Teacher Kathy Harvey enthused:
"I enjoyed the way the author used words. The language was fabulous, especially the way he described the animals. He used a lot of good sentences kids could relate to, with strong verbs that made the story come to life. It wasn't boring language. My favorite part was all the stuff about the animals.I also thought it was nice to have a story from New Mexico. You don't always see that in print.""My sister really enjoyed the implied morals in the story. And a friend's daughter really liked the book. She loved learning about all the animals!"
A fabulous picture book (for ages up to 8+) sure to warm your heart, with an ending that might very well bring a tear to your eye. (A great mother/daughter book, too!)
Rebecca begins her day bored and lacking confidence in herself, only to learn surprising lessons at an unexpected place (a state fair) -- about positive thinking, about how fun and rewarding it is to help others in need (even if those "others" are animals in distress), and about the fact that kids can make a difference...kids do count!
On a day that Rebecca felt was a zero...she turned it around by becoming a hero!
A great book for kids who are prone to getting bored, or who have a poor self-image. It also teaches children about strange and wondrous animals of which they are probably unaware...and to love and respect animals.
