Wonderful 5-Star Reviews of Broose the Moose on the Loose!


I am excited to post three wonderful reviews of my newest children’s book, Broose the Moose on the Loose! Thank you, dear readers and friends, Deanie Humphys-Dunne, Gisela H. Sedlmayer and Sarah Mazor, for reviewing Broose!  He  is now one very happy moose! Your support and friendship mean the world to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic tale of a Moose. March 10, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase

Clawed by a bear just after birth, Broose the Moose had a nasty scare on his right cheek. He looked tough because of that scar, but other Moose made fun of him. So he was mostly alone and wandered through the woods. But his mother told him to stay away from the humans.

He wandered around until he saw a boy limping along but happy hopping around. Broose watches him and mimicked him by hopping around as well.

The boy stopped what he was doing, hearing Broose hopping along. Then he greeted him and told him that his name was Bruce and that no one wanted to play with him because of his lame leg. Surprised, Broose the Moose told him his name. They both had the same name, but different writing. They found each other and played around until Broose had to go home.

Janice Spina, the author of that fantastic story, wrote at the end. I quote it here, because that it’s all about. Acceptance, friendship.

“It doesn’t matter who or what you are, we all have feelings and we should be kind and always keep other’s feelings in mind”.

Great Story with moral lessons, Great drawings as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful story with an important message to share March 12, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
Broose the Moose was lonely. He had no friends. The other moose laughed at him because Broose was hurt by a bear. Now he had a big scar. One day Broose the Moose was walking in the woods when he noticed a little blond boy, playing with a toy. There was something different about the boy. One of his legs wasn’t very strong. Broose became friends with the little boy. Then he had something special to smile about. Broose found out he had something else in common with the little blond boy who limped. The illustrations are cute and colorful. The message of acceptance and friendship is most important. Children, parents, grandparents and teachers will value this story and enjoy it. I highly recommend this wonderful story by award-winning author, Janice Spina.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner by Team Spina March 12, 2015
A lonely moose whose name was Broose
Was sad and knew no joy
Until one day, a lucky day
He bumped into a boy
What to know what happened then? Read the book!””The fabulous children’s books author Janice Spina and husband, the incredibly talented illustrator John Spina, once again, bring to life a wonderful animal character, a friendless young moose who is shunned by other moose because of his facial disfigurement. The Spinas entertain young readers as they convey important life lessons about friendship and kindness.

Highly and warmly recommended.
Be sure to check out Team Spina’s other children books: “Jerry the Crabby Crayfish”, “Jesse the Precocious Polar Bear”, “Lamby the Lonely Lamb”, and “Louey the Lazy Elephant”+

It is wonderful receiving such lovely reviews of one of my books. It makes me feel fulfilled and happy doing what I love to do – write. I hope children everywhere will enjoy reading Broose the Moose on the Loose. He is waiting for you to take him home.

More books coming later this year. I have a middle-grade series I am writing now and two more children’s stories – one about a cat and the other about a monkey. My husband, John, will be very busy over the next several months. Two more novels are in editing form but they will come much later in the year or in 2016.

Keep a lookout for them on http://www.jemsbooks.com.

Remember:  Reading Gives You Wings to Fly!

Thought for the Day:   Reading every day to  your children will make them want to continue to read more on their own and will help them to do better in school. It is also a special time for parents and children to have that quality time together.

Blessings to all!
