Lauren Simone Pubs had the honor of reviewing two books written by the talented Belinda Mays. Check out what Olivia and Dr. John had to say!
Seven Days with Daddy by Belinda N. Mays
This is a fun way to learn the days of the week and to count from 1 to 7. In the book, a little girl spends a week hanging out with just her dad, while her mom is away. Read to find out all the fun things daddy has planned to help his daughter deal with mom being away for so long. Olivia and I liked the book for its fun storytelling and bright beautiful illustrations. The book has captivating and colorful illustrations and is perfect for little brown skinned girls who love their daddies. Best of all, they include age diversity by showing not just young adults, but my including granny. We think it is important for children to have strong positive relationships with different generations. We recommend this book for 2 to 6 year olds.
My Amazing Dad by Belinda N. Mays
This book was hilarious!!! My daughter and I really enjoyed reading about the amazing dad. We were not a fan of the illustrations immediately. However, the story was so good that we overlooked them. In fact, because of the hilarious nature of the story, the illustrations actually worked out quite perfectly. We loved the ending. We recommend this book for 5- 9 year olds because of the metaphors and similes used.
