{Review & Giveaway} Little Five Star Children's Book - US




"Little Five Star is a division of Five Star Publications, publishing books exclusively for children.
Our mission is to help authors create books that will help children understand the implications of their life choices and help them become more tolerant and accepting of the differences in people."



I received "Rattlesnake Rules" by Conrad J. Storad for review, many thanks to Five Star Publications! Chayden is a book worm and was extremely excited to receive a book in the mail! We have had the book for a little over 3 weeks now and its impossible to take it out of his hands. To summarize "Rattlesnake Rules" by Conrad J. Storad, its basically a book aimed at children in learning about Rules. Yes, even Rattlesnakes have rules kids! You have them, everybody has rules. In addition to learning about rules, children (& myself!) get to learn tid bits of rattlesnakes. For example, why they flick their tongue, what they eat, why they rattle their tails, etc, all in children's point of view.
Chayden loves the artistic work in the book as well as I. His favorite page is this one;



And to add to the crazy photography -



Nah. But on a serious note, At the end of this book, there is a curriculum page as well as pages about facts vs. myths, learning new words, etc etc ...

Other books that are of interest to us were;

"Cheery" by Dr. Elizabeth W. Davidson. A story about why some frogs, like Cheery, and other amphibians are dramatically declining in numbers around the world and may become extinct unless something is done to save them.

"The Student From Zombie Island" by Michael J. Moorehead. A story about rumors.

+ more! I love the concept of all these amazing books by Little Five Star. If YOU have a tendency to read as well, you can check out Five Star Publications and look around! There are non-fiction, fiction, cookbooks, educational, mystery, etc ...
