Free children’s e-books 2 and 3 Nov 2019

Des square cover final

This is my final weekend of ‘giveaway’ books. My children’s books are free today and tomorrow. Even if you’re in the middle of reading another book with your child you can download these and save them for later.

Desdemona the dragon without any friends is a charming children’s picture book to read to a younger child. Desdemona is looking for friendship and she learns that friends don’t have to look like you.

My other children’s books are chapter books. Each chapter can be read as an individual story and they make up a longer story. These are ideal for children to read themselves or to share with their favourite adult.

The Green Book is the story of Alana, who discovers a magic book. Alana has many adventures with her friends and the magic book. She learns ways to solve problems whilst having loads of fun.

Tiny Tyrannosaurus tells about Isaac’s life with a magical tiny tyrannosaurus. They have many adventures and learn about staying safe and not being greedy, among other things.

Pablo the storytelling bear is my latest children’s book and tells the stories of two polar bears. One is in captivity, but has some magical adventures and the other is free and struggles to survive. This is certainly an opportunity to help children learn about our fragile Earth and how animals can become extinct, but it is a fun book to read.

Remember all my books are free on on Amazon’s kindle unlimited all the time.

Pablo wins a Readers’ Choice Award from Connections eMagazine

The Connections eMagazine runs an annual Readers’ Choice Award and Pablo the Storytelling Bear was nominated for the Children’s Chapter Book category. Imagine how thrilled I was when it won joint third place in its category. It was awarded a bronze Readers’ Choice Award, which is now on its new cover.

The story of Pablo the Storytelling Bear is a mixture of magic and real life for polar bears, who are struggling for survival in some parts of the world. Pablo is a magical bear, aided by Gertrude Hermione Humbug. He tells Bill about how polar bears survive in the wild and what happens if they live in a zoo. Of course the magic element allows some fun to be incorporated in the stories.

You can read this story for free on kindle unlimited and it’s only £1.99 for the ebook and £5.00 from Amazon here.

If you enjoy reading, take a look at the other winners in the Connections eMagazine, (link above). I shall certainly be reading some of the winners’ books. The current edition also has some 100 words flash fiction, which are fun. Why not have a go and write a hundred word story, yourself?

Book Review: Yoga Fox by Sylva Fae

This is a beautifully illustrated book about a fox, known as Scaredy Fox, who wants a new name. He sees a group in the park doing yoga and decides to try it. For all of the yoga moves he makes up new names and tells them to his animal friends. Will his friends be impressed and rename him? What is lovely about this book is that children can try out the yoga moves. I would recommend this book for younger readers. I’m sure they’d love it.

This book is available from Amazon in paperback for £5. or on Amazon’s Kindle for £1.99 here
