A MAGICAL TALE OF TRUE FRIENDSHIP

Can you imagine if there was no longer a Spring, Summer, or Autumn? And, there was only Winter? Well, winter is what the North Wind wants, and why he tries to come between two wonderful friends; the Moon and the Sun.

Children will love this delightful tale of friendship and magic by Oscar Malenar called The Sun and the Moon Friendship Tale.

In this wonderful story, the North Wind is unhappy. He does not like warm, sunny days, and green grass and trees. The North Wind longs for a cold, snowy winter that lasts forever. Therefore, he is determined to end the friendship between the Moon and the Sun that keeps the seasons of Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn in place. The North Wind has finally hatched a plan to get rid of the Sun!

Will the Moon and Sun fall victim to the North Wind’s plan? Or, is their friendship strong enough to save the day? If the Earth turns cold and stays covered in snow, all the Earth’s people, animals, and birds will suffer. Everyone will become sad and depressed.

But, there is hope. And, that hope lies in a special gift the Sun has given the Moon. Can the Moon come to understand how special that gift is before it is too late?

Read this beautiful story and learn how sometimes even the smallest and most ordinary of things can still be big enough to save the day!

This is a wonderful bedtime tale for children. A story of true friendship and magic with a beautiful ending. Highly recommended for parents with small children they love to read to.

Voices from the Second World War

Voices from the past for today’s children

Voices from the past … from World War III … telling tales for today’s children.

It looks like John Purvis over at John’s Notes came up with another little gem on his blog! I certainly would have enjoyed something like this when I was in school. I like the fact that this work of non-fiction shares stories from soldiers and civilians from both sides … Allies and Axis.

John gave it a 3.8 out of 5! I think this was mostly because, according to his review, some of the stories began to get repetitive toward the end. I bet a great many of the stories are very moving. The cover is vintage WWII recruitment poster-type artwork. I have a feeling I will be checking this book out … maybe on Audible.
