A New Review of Make Believe is Fun: Bedtime Stories for Children!

It always warms my heart to see a review up on Amazon of one of my books. This one just popped up for Make Believe is Fun: Bedtime Stories for Children. Thank you, ‘Mystery Fran,’ for this lovely review. I am grateful that you enjoyed my book and that you will share it with your grandchildren.

Mystery “Fran”

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Stories to Share with Children! Reviewed in the United States on February 4, 2023

“Make Believe Is Fun” is a collection of short bedtime stories for children that are a cross between folk tales and fables. The stories’ main characters, all animals, get into various situations which get resolved through the magic of make believe. I love that there are timely themes woven into each story, such as kindness, friendship, bravery, and love – perfect for the author ‘s targeted audience, children ages 5 – 8. Also great for initiating discussions with them about these themes. I know my granddaughters will love the animals and the colorful illustrations!


This is book 2 of the Bedtime Stories for Children Series. There are six tales with an illustration for each. Children will read about two squirrels, a turkey, a frog, a tree, a leopard and mouse, and a cat. These animal tales will delight children and become their favorite bedtime stories.

Each story carries life lessons that will help children understand about the importance of friendship, helping others in need, family, and it’s okay to be different.

If your children haven’t read either book in this series, check them out today. These books would make perfect Valentine’s Day gifts for your little ones! Watch them smile and giggle at the stories and want to read them or have them read by you every day and night.


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.
