Welcome to The Kid’s Korner!

I have a couple of fun children’s books to share today. I love unicorns and couldn’t resist the lovely cover for The Unicorn That Had No Horn. And I’m always ready to dive back into A. J. Cosmos Monsters A To Z Series. Dax’s River has a cute little monster.


The Little Unicorn That Had No Horn

Written by James McDonald



My Review

This story is so cute. I love unicorns and each page has beautiful, enchanting illustrations of the little unicorn and it’s mother. I loved it and even read it twice.

It’s a charming story about a little unicorn that’s impatient to grow up and get it’s horn. The mother urges her young one to cherish each day and not be in such a hurry.

An adorable, magical picture book to share with your little ones.

 5 Stars



“I promise that you’ll grow up, so treasure each and every day. Never wish one second of your precious time away.”

An impatient little unicorn can’t wait to grow up and get its horn, but wise Mother Unicorn lovingly guides her little one to appreciate time and not wish it away.

This is a heart-warming story of a mother’s love and guidance in helping her child see beyond the uncertainties of childhood and cherish each and every moment.



Dax’s River D Is For Dock Diver

Written by Scott Hillegass and A.J. Cosmos



My Review

Another sweet story from the Monsters A To Z series.

Dax is a river monster who comes across Lily, a drowning little girl. Against his  parents warnings to avoid humans, he dives in and rescues her. They become unlikely friends and soon it’s Lily’s turn to rescue Dax.

My favorite part of the story is when Dax tries to hide in the river. All you can see is his big round eyes. So cute.

A delightful story for early readers with some cute illustrations and lessons in friendship and knowing when to stand up for yourself.

  4 Stars



A little girl nearly drowns in the river but is rescued by a strange monster. Fearful of humans, the monster soon learns that a good friend can be a lifesaver.

The 12th book in the Monsters A to Z series tells a story of friendship in unexpected places, conquering your fears, and standing up for yourself. This short read is easy to understand for most second graders and a great story to discuss friendship with your child.

1,800 words, 7 gorgeous full-color illustrations, comparable with all Kindle models.
