New Review of Children’s Book – Make Believe (Bedtime Stories for Children)!

I am always thrilled to receive a review for one of my books. Here is a new one for Make Believe (Bedtime Stories for Children). Thank you, Theodocia McLean!

5 Stars: Unique Bedtime Fantasy Stories For Age 5-8!
This unique, educational short story collection brings wonderful fantasy to children ages 5-8. Each story has a colorful character, brightly illustrated on the stories title page. Children will learn a valuable life lesson with each story. As the child reads or hears the stories, their imagination will come to life; with a blue alien named, Bluripizig; a green dragon named, Russell; a little fairy in a pink dress; a brown bear named, Shular; Marco, the boy who couldn’t swim; and of course, an adorable white skunk with a story you will not want to miss.
Award winning author, Janice Spina, writes make-believe stories that children can relate to about animals and other creatures. She hopes adults will enjoy reading these bedtime stories to the children in their lives. Janice has written 19 children’s books. She has multiple series, for ages 10+. Her Mariah series along with a couple stand-alone books, are for ages 18+. Her ‘Gateskin Chronicles’ series for age 15+ has just arrived.
Janice Spina is a retired administrative secretary from a public school system in Massachusetts. I highly recommend her books. Her books should be placed in school and community libraries. As adults it is our job to make it possible for all children to read books and encourage reading time. Janice Spina’s books make great year-round gifts for children of all ages.

This is a short story collection for children ages 5-8. They are perfect for bedtime or any time. They can be read by early readers or by a parent/guardian. They will provide a fun reading time for both the reader and the listener.

There are six stories with a colorful illustration of the characters of each story – one about an alien, a dragon, a fairy, a bear, a bear and a boy and a skunk. Each story will have life lessons for children to learn.

I hope to write more short stories for children in the near future. Grab your copy today and get your children reading this summer and all year through.

Please consider giving books to all the children on your list for all occasions. There is nothing better than to see a child’s eyes light up when you give him/her a book – even more so when you read the book to them. You are giving them so much more than you could ever imagine, e.g., you spark their imagination, heighten their creativity, lift their spirits, increase their vocabulary, open up a whole new world to them, enhance their health and welbeing and encourage them to love reading. The gift of a book is worth more than gold to our children, grandchildren. Keep reading and gifting books to children. Let’s bring up a generation of readers and thinkers. Thank you for your support!

Thank you for stopping by to read this post. Feel free to come back again soon for more posts about books, reviews, author interviews, fish, birds, flowers or whatever pops into my already overcrowded head. Thank you for your kind support of my books and for any reviews you may post wherever you purchased my books.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
