eBook review: “The Crab Who Wanted to Be a Dolphin” by Valerie Harmon

valerie harmon

Crab is always cranky, lonely and sad. She believes that she is unhappy because she is not a dolphin. When she decides to become one, she starts asking around: what exactly does one need to do around here to become a dolphin? 

The little Crab does not realize that dolphins are born and not made. 

Nevertheless, Crab starts working towards fulfilling her dream. Dolphin, her new friend, gives her some tips and sends her on a couple of missions that could help her achieve her goal. 

Along this self-discovery trip, Crab learns about Gratitude and about the good things that are present in her crabby little life and finally understands that to be happy, the change needs to happen on the inside and not in the world surrounding us.

Valerie’s book is illustrated by Carol Stevens, and both the prose and the illustrations are very professional. 

This book is recommended for children ages 4-8 who need to learn the basics of positive thinking and also that the most important changes must happen within us if we wish to live happily ever after.

eBook review: “Grandad’s Missing Teeth” By Gemma Wood

Gemma Wood

 

This book by Gemma Wood narrates one of the adventures of Dexter, an Old English sheepdog who seems to have a lot of issues passing gases, and his best friend, Rufus, a little Jack Russell dog.

Grandpa has lost his false teeth and Rufus is decided to find them. Enlisting the help of big, and sometimes stinky, Dexter, he embarks on a one day quest.

Along their journey, Dexter and Rufus find rabbits, squirrels, pigs, frogs and some other wild animals. Some of the animals behave very friendly while others are very mean to them.

Dexter, the main character in the book, manages to get out of some really tight situations and makes some new friends. He also learns and teaches us a very valuable lesson about judging people before really getting to know them.

I would say that this book is for children who are 6 years old or older, since the story is a little bit long, and without pictures.

This is an enjoyable book for children who like pets and imagine them in adventures with a happy ending.

If only grandad knew all the places his teeth have been…

You can buy the book on Amazon here.
