Welcome to The Kid’s Korner!

I mentioned I was going to be doing this some time ago. It’s almost the end of the month and I figured I better get to it.

I’m still working on my banner and should have it ready for the next post.

I have a couple of fun children’s books to share today. I really enjoyed them.

My Review

Rosalie and Friends is a story about celebrating your differences.

Rosie is a pink hippo. We all know hippos are grey. So does Rosie. Instead of burying her head in the sand, she let’s herself shine. She’s Positively Different.

With big, colorful illustrations and lots of uniquely different characters, Rosie shows her friends that being different isn’t a bad thing. It’s all in how you see yourself.

Sure to delight your children, it also encourages them to be themselves and boosts their self-confidence.

We could all learn from this.

I like when a book is fun and you don’t even notice that you’re learning. Very clever.

Rosalie and Truffle / Truffle and Rosalie

Written by Katja Reider

My Review

Rosalie and Truffle is a story of love.

Rosalie dreams of love. She thinks she’s found it, but her family and friends think she needs to look further.

Truffle and Rosalie is a story of luck.

Truffle dreams of luck. He thinks he’s found it, but his friends and family think he’s settling too easily.

Rosalie and Truffle find a way to meet in the middle.

This is a sweet story, or two, about love and luck, trusting yourself, and following your dreams.

It’s told in a clever way. First you read Rosalie’s story. Then you flip the book over and read Truffle’s.

Filled with fun and colorful illustrations and cute characters, it’s sure to make you and your children smile.

Synopsis

Rosalie is a pig, Truffle is a boar. Rosalie dreams of love, and Truffle of luck. One fateful day, they find each other under the blooming apple tree. This is a tale of love, shown from both sides. Rosalie’s story begins at the front of the book, Truffle’s at the back, and both versions meet in the middle.
