Book Review for Children – Sabine Goldman

Finding Faith book

If you are looking for a book for children ages 8-12, I have the perfect book for you. Recently I read an endearing and sweet story, Sam and the Pixie, by Sabine Goldman. This story is imaginative and captivating for young children who love make-believe. Sabine combines fantasy with some life lessons. She skillfully steers the young reader through relationships and how to treat one another. She also lets the reader know that it is okay to be different.  A worthwhile read!  Check it out on Amazon or

Work on my book is moving more quickly now. I still have some minor editing to do then onto copyrighting. The name of my first novel is, Mariah, a murder mystery that will leave you guessing until the end. You will feel the terror and fear of the characters as they try to solve the mystery and capture the killer.

Two children’s books I have completed with illustrations just need a publisher. They are Louey, the Lazy Elephant, and Ricky, the Rambunctious Raccoon. They are cute and engaging stories for ages 3-8 that will keep your children engaged and interested in the exploits of these animals. I hope to have both of these books published within a couple of months.

Keep a lookout for these books and check my website for their availability at

Remember, reading gives you wings to fly. Open a book and let your imagination soar.
