Sophie's Animal Parade

Book Review: Sophie’s Animal Parade

I mentioned before that my kiddos have been addicted to the iPads, and we’ve only been 2 weeks into summer. To get them off the electronics and back into a form of reality, I’ve insisted every other day that the kids pick up a book. For my princess, who just started reading through the school year, she’ chose Sophie’s Animal Parade today, a cute book about an adorable little girl – Sophie who is lonely and creates her own playmates.

Sophie's Animal Parade

We’ve already had a few days this summer where the kids, only being awake for an hour or two, start complaining that they are bored. I love the fact that in Sophie’s Animal Parade, Sophie creates her own form of reality by drawing her own playmates.

Since we love to read, it’s always fun to check out new books, especially when you get a chance to work with directly the authors or illustrators, so when I was put in touch with Israel Sanchez, I was delighted to receive a copy of the book he illustrated: “The Dinosaur Tooth Fairy”.

Book Review: Luca Lashes, An iPad App and Interactive Story

My kids are highly addicted to the iPad.  Heck, I am too.  I really enjoy my social addiction, while the kids, handsome boy in particular is addicted to any racing game he can get his hands on.  However I do make them use these gadgets for learning as well.  We all really enjoy reading stories together as a family, and love finding new stories, especially interactive ones to download.

I was recently contacted about a book review on Luca Lashes, an interactive book series that is based on a boy with magic eyelashes that give him special brave powers.


We had the opportunity to download two of the books.  The first, “Luca Lashes and his Trip To The Nursing Home”.
