"It's Elijah's big day! Today he turns four years old, and his mom, dad, and sister, Madison, have a special party planned for him. The house has been beautifully decorated for the big day, and many of his friends are there to celebrate with him including his best friend, Rex. Rex is his imaginary dinosaur friend, and Elijah knows that Rex will give him the best gift ever. What will it be? What will Elijah and his friends do on his special day? Join Elijah for his birthday surprise!
Elijah's Birthday Surprise is part of the Madison and Elijah children's book series. The story is packed full of educational resources and activities for young minds. The Bishops did a great job of using child-appropriate language and illustrations that beautifully depict the story. Elijah's Birthday Surprise is full of imagination and fun, and I especially loved the educational review questions at the end of the book. The story also comes equipped with detailed craft projects for students to complete.
The About the Author page mentions that one of the children was diagnosed with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and the vivid colors of the illustrations were very eye-catching and constantly moving to keep children's attention. I connected with this because I work with children with ADHD and a book like this would be a great learning tool to help keep their attention during learning. Elijah's Birthday Suprise is a great children's educational resource to use for youngsters."

I wish I had this story while teaching first and second grade. The information is easy to understand, and the illustrations are eye-catching. The bold font makes the words jump off the page, and the brightly colored vocabulary words match the words in the diagrams, making it easy for the reader to learn new words and make connections. Imani did a great job explaining the life cycle of a plant. Additionally, she encourages her readers to do a hands-on experiment with planting a seed and recording the data. Hands-on projects are a brilliant way to introduce young children to the scientific method. Imani knows how to reach her audience and keep them engaged. Her readers will love seeing Imani take a selfie with a plant. The Golden Life of Sally Sunflower will inspire children to learn more about plants and explore becoming scientists.
This children’s book hits “home” My children are grown now and are educators. I know they would’ve loved this book because of the fun facts and seeing families that resemble them and their friends. Even as adults we enjoyed reading it and I’m looking forward to more adventures of Malachi and Karelle.
Love the color and fit.
It was nice to shop with various options on diversity. My children love their book about promises. We will continue shopping for more books!
The messaging and graphics in this book are very well done! Highly recommend!
Fantastic books, illustrations are great, messaging is great. So happy you all are doing this work!
I have to speak about this book ASAP because @laurensimonepubs (Instagram) was so kind to send me a copy to review. In short, I was and am still in awe at every detail and illustration. This book has a wealth of knowledge. This book exemplifies what the adage means, “Big things come in small packages.” If you want a quick and easy way to share with your kiddo what different cultures wear, why and how, you absolutely need this book. There is no book like it! Even as an adult it was a good refresher for multi-cultural traditional and non-traditional clothing. I even learned new information as well. I implore you to get this book ASAP and share it with your class, your kiddos in your family, everyone. 5 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you again @laurensimonepubs for sending me this. I am incredibly grateful and have already been bragging about how truly amazing, educational, and artistic this book is. I plan to tell everyone I know about it. #LaurenSimonePublishing #ThingsWeWear #MustReadASAP #ChildrensNonFiction #BookReview #FiveStarBook #Multicultural #Diversity #ThankYou Everyone please follow @laurensimonepubs and check out the books they have and all about them on their website!

This book is so fun! Beautiful illustrations and musical story.
I like the varied range of occupations presented in the book. 4 Stars
As a Mom I love how thorough these books are about different ways to communicate, occupations, types of clothes and travel. Our favorite book was the one about types of travels. The occupations book is a little long for bedtime but a great resource and we’re reading a few pages each night. My 3 year old loves listening to these and looking at the illustrations. I love The diversity of the images.
I love this book! When I purchased it, I intended to read it to my lovely kids in the classroom. Obviously, I have to rethink this. So, Olivia Lauren's Occupations A to Z: A Guide to Jobs and Careers Book will be read and discussed via Google Meet in my Google classroom on Monday. I will try to share a snippet with you!
