I will be featuring a different book in each of these posts until I have featured all 31 of my books. In this post the spotlight is on Broose the Moose on the Loose. Broose was published in March of 2015.
Broose was dedicated to the Moose Hill School in Londonderry, NH. I picked up my grandson from this school one day and noticed the glassed in shelves with all the moose paraphernalia. My grandson said I should write a book about a moose and put it on the shelf. That is what I did. Once the book was completed I brought along a box of books for the kids there and the principal placed my book on the shelves along with the other books and items. Broose was quite happy to be there and so was I to see him there!
If you are ever at the Moose Hill School in Londonderry, New Hampshire don’t forget to stop and look at the shelf with all the moose paraphernalia and find Broose the Moose on the Loose looking quite happy with himself.
Broose is a sad moose who has no friends until he meets a young boy. Read what happens when Broose meets a boy who has the same name as he.
If you and your children haven’t met Broose now is the time to pick up a copy and bring him home for your children to enjoy. Broose would be a happy moose. Your children will learn the following important life lessons.
Broose the Moose on the Loose – Broose teaches children to be kind and accepting of others who are different than you are.
I feel pure joy writing for children and hope with God’s help and blessing to continue to write many more fun adventures for children to read and enjoy. I do enjoy writing for MG/PT/YA and 18+ too!
Here are some reviews on Amazon:
Mrs.D.5.0 out of 5 stars A Message of Acceptance and Friendship Reviewed in the United States on January 22, 2018Another wonderful book by the talented team of Janice and John Spina. The lesson of kindness and understanding is one that children must learn at a very early age. It is easy to be judgmental and mean, but children must first understand what compassion and kindness means.
A vicious bear clawed Broose the Moose at a very early age, leaving him with a scar on his face. Even though Broose looked threatening because of his scar, it did not stop the other moose from teasing him.
The sad loner wanders alone through the forests until he meets a similar loner, a boy with a limp leg. Nobody wants to play with the boy, and he spends his time away from the other children. The two become friends, very different by nature but so similar in their situations.
The author and illustrator have created a sweet, simple tale, easy to understand for a young child. The rhyme style was a bonus, and the illustrations enhanced the story. The message of acceptance and friendship is highlighted clearly: accept people for what they are. I love this story because it will bring a very needed discussion to homes, schools, and reading clubs. Children will remember the valuable lesson this book conveys. I applaud the gifted team of Janice and John Spina for another great teaching story!
eanie Humphrys-Dunne5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful story with an important message to share Reviewed in the United States on March 12, 2015Broose 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.

Allen Smith5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect For Young Children With A Great MessageReviewed in the United States on January 16, 2017What a great little book for young children with a super message that conveys very positive thoughts. Children learn about friendship in this cute little book and how we can relate to each others differences and hardships in life. The color illustrations are wonderful and they show a lot of action. Broose the Moose and Bruce become the best of friends for life after meeting when they are younger. Don’t we all wish we had many friends like that? This book made me smile and I know it will bring joy to the hearts of many young readers!
MBKs5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner by Team SpinaReviewed in the United States on March 12, 2015A 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”.+
