Welcome to The Kid’s Korner!

I have a couple of fun children’s books to share today. It’s funny that both of these are Christmas books and the wacky weather here is in the 80s!


Jolly Jingrel Christmas

Monsters A To Z #12

by Sara Dean and  A.J. Cosmo



My Review

Such a cute story. Jolly the Jingrel tries really hard to get presents for his family, but every time he spots something good, his sibling grabs it first. By Christmas Eve, he’s still not found anything for his mother and all he has left is a silver crayon.

I am the youngest of six kids and know just how Jolly feels. Sibling rivalry is tough. LOL Wait until you see what Jolly does with that silver crayon. It’s precious.

I love Christmas and read holiday books year round. You and your little ones will be cheering Jolly on and smiling at all of the fun illustrations.

Jolly the Jingrel wants to find the best Christmas present for his mom. However, after collecting from the humans, Jolly’s siblings take all of the good stuff for themselves and Jolly is left with nothing but an old silver crayon. Will Jolly find the perfect gift for his mom? Or maybe, just maybe, will he learn what the holiday is really all about?

The 12th book in the ‘Monsters A to Z’ series shows that sometimes the best gifts are the simplest ones of all.

10 full-color illustrations, 2K words, reading level 3.2



A Bear Of A Christmas

 by A.J. Cosmos



My Review

Bo-Bo the bear cub asks his mother why Santa doesn’t visit bears at Christmas. His mom tells him a tale about a little boy and a very disobedient bear. Now Bo-Bo wants to tell Santa that one bad apple shouldn’t ruin Christmas for all of them.

I liked how momma bear guided Bo-Bo when he decided to do something about Santa. Changing the things you can is a big part of life.

There’s lots of bright, fun illustrations throughout and a life lesson cleverly told. A good one to read with your little ones or for them to read to you.

Warning: You might have to rush out and buy a stuffed Teddy Bear as soon as your youngsters finish this book.

Why doesn’t Santa visit bears? Bo-Bo the cub wanted to know, so he asked Mamma and boy, does she have a story to tell.

2k words, 12 illustrations, full color, perfect for emergent readers.
