The Fart fairy
This book was written by Bobbie Hinman. It is about a fairy that farts. I find this book interesting because it discusses fairies of all shapes and sizes. The part that I disliked was I didnt see the moral of the story. I give it 4 stars. - Olivia Lauren
The Fart Fairy is a beautifully illustrated book filled with diversity of its characters, human, animal, and fairy alike. It is a book for people with a special sense of humor, hearing, and smell! It also does a great job with rhyme. I absolutely loved everything about it. It was a pleasure to read. It was funny looking at the characters. At the end is a song to the tune of Pop goes the weasel. I give it 5 stars. - Dr John, author and psychologist.
Popcorn behind the bush is written by Grace LaJoy Henderson. The book is about Gracie looking for a gift from her grandma. I liked this book because it is realistic and fun. It is from the genre called realistic fiction or mystery. The part I disliked was there could be more to the story. I recommend it to younger children.-- Olivia Lauren, age 10
Popcorn behind the bush by Dr. Grace LaJoy Henderson, is a short story about a little, African American girl named Gracie. Gracie lives with her mom, dad, and little brother and lives in a beautiful. She has a great relationship with her grandma who lives on her own. Her grandma sent her a gift through the mail. The postal worker delivers it and leaves a note on the door. The point of the story is for Gracie to decipher the note. At the end of the book, the author provides reading comprehension questions (What do you think?), About the Book (The Gracie series) and an about the author section. It is a sweet book for beginner readers. I give it 5 stars.- Dr. John, author, publisher, social psychologist and mom of two daughters (10 and 16 years old)
Hello readers!!!! Welcome to LSP Blogs. My name is Olivia Lauren. I am a child author and publisher. My mom, sister, and I created Lauren Simone Publishing House to provide a place for talented youth to share their stories and their art. Today I am interviewing my friend and fellow mini-author, Imani Ariana Grant.
Olivia: Hello Imani. Please tell us a bit about yourself.
Imani: I am a nine-year-old girl who loves to dance, sing, do art, play the violin, and play with my friends. I also love fairy tales, myths, and animation. So far, I love to write! I also love my new book!
Olivia: What inspired you to write a book?
Imani: My baby brother inspired me to begin to write and still does! One day, I was sitting on my porch and I saw my brother watching a show about planets. And that is who inspires me and why.
As you know here at Lauren Simone Pubs, we blog about children's books written by talented youth or indie authors. Today, one of our very own advisory board members published her first book. We wanted to share the good news with you. I purchased a copy on Amazon. Here is my review below and a little bit about the author.
Faith Clarke in her book, Parenting like a ninja: An Autism mom’s guide to professional productivity, uses a fun, casual, and conversational tone to help the reader learn methods to see clearly and strategize ways to live in harmony while parenting a child with autism. While she understands not every child diagnosed with autism is the same, she argues that the principles for living a harmonious, productive, and fully integrated life apply. She is authentic and relatable in sharing her personal experiences with her son. In addition, she gives the reader time to digest the content and reflect on their own experiences as a mom of a child diagnosed with autism in each chapter (a section called Your Turn). Although this book was written specifically for moms of children with autism, I believe this book could be and should be read by all working mothers. If you have ever completed undergrad, pursued graduate school, and aimed towards a successful career, and something life altering changes those plans such as the birth of a special needs child, having to care for a sick or elderly parent, a spouse’s loss of income, or whatever the challenge you may be facing, this book puts life into perspective. The good news is you can still achieve professional goals with these strategies she puts in place and achieve work-life balance. Success is continually redefined as our mindsets are changed and our vision becomes clearer. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. – Dr. Melissa-Sue John, author, social psychologist, and professor.
Melissa: Hello Elijah and Sabrina. I would like to introduce you to the Lauren Simone Publishing House readers. Please tell us a bit about yourself.
Elijah: Hi! I am 4 years old and I love dinosaurs. I love going on adventures using my imagination. Sometimes my sister Madison is with me on my adventures.
Melissa: Where were you born? Where have you lived? And where do you call home?
Elijah: I was born in Florida, lived in Al Ain, UAE, and Abu Dhabi, UAE. Homestead, Florida is my home.
Melissa: What or who inspired you to start writing?
Elijah: Mom and Dad read stories every night. One night mom told me to create my story and from there I just started to create more and more stories.
Melissa: When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Elijah: When my mom showed me the first sample of what my book would look like. I got excited and told all my friends at school.
Melissa: How much of yourself, your personality or your experiences, is in your books?
Elijah: All, we didn’t change much. The illustrator drew our pictures from real pictures my mom took of me in action.
Melissa to Elijah’s mom: Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with bad or good ones?
Sabrina: We have read all the reviews so far. It is very exciting to read how people feel towards our book. The positive reviews gives me the strength to continue to document Elijah and Madison as they go off on their adventures. I have yet to read a negative review and I hope we do not receive one.
Melissa: I am so glad to hear that! Please tell us about your current release.
Elijah: It’s about my favorite animal, I have a collection of dinosaurs that I enjoy playing with. Rex and I tend to go on adventures even though he is invisible.
