Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White #ChildrensFiction #AudioBookReview

Author: E.B. White

Released October 2019

Category: Children’s Fiction, Audiobook, Book Review

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Some Pig. Humble. Radiant. These are the words in Charlotte’s Web, high up in Zuckerman’s barn. Charlotte’s spiderweb tells of her feelings for a little pig named Wilbur, who simply wants a friend. They also express the love of a girl named Fern, who saved Wilbur’s life when he was born the runt of his litter.

I couldn’t resist indulging in some nostalgia when I saw Charlotte’s Web on Audible, especially with such a great cast which includes Meryl Streep, January LaVoy, Kirby Heyborne and MacLeod Andrews.

Jimmy the House Spider by Raymond T Davies #BookReview for #RBRT #Children’s #Fiction

Author: Raymond T Davies

Category: Children’s Fiction, Book Review

Published: June 2017 by Austin Macauley Publishers Ltd

‘I have spent a good deal of time teaching my children and grandchildren to respect the other creatures we share our world with. Many children and even many grown-ups, suffer from arachnophobia with unfortunate results for themselves and the spiders; particularly those who inhabit our homes. My hope is this house spider adventure will dispel some of those fears and influence children and their parents to look kindly on these useful and harmless little creatures and indeed, all life forms which make up our world. They all have their part to play in ensuring our unique planet and the life it supports, will continue.’

I read Jimmy the House Spider with my five year old grandson, or more accurately he read it to me. There’s quite a lot more to read in this book as opposed to the reading books he brings home from school, but we read it in three short sessions. There are several words that I thought were quite advanced for the target age group, such as instinctively and laboriously, so help was needed with some pronunciations and explanations of the meaning, which isn’t a bad thing. That aside, he was very pleased with himself when he’d finished the book and wanted to take it into school. The teacher read it to the class and I’m told most of the children were entertained by it.

Guest Post by author A.H. Richardson #Children’s #fiction @BookPubServices #MondayBlogs

I’m very pleased to welcome to A.H. Richardson, author of Jorie and the Magic Stones, to the blog today.

Over to you, Angela.

A question that is frequently asked when someone has read ‘Jorie and the Magic Stones’ is — “Where do your ideas come from?” I loved writing this story, and it I can truthfully trace it back to my childhood. 

I will try to keep this narrative short, but I want to tell my readers, that an idea (arguably the strongest force in the world) can stay with one for many, many years.

As a child of seven, I was rather headstrong and wildly imaginative, and considered a bit of a ‘handful!’  At the foot of my grandfather’s large garden, there ran a swift running little canal, at the side of which was tied a little canoe, which I found irresistible.  I had been told, that under no circumstances was I to take this boat out ‘on my own’ or there would be stiff penalties.  My grandmother was something of a martinet, and it was a good idea to be obedient, when she issued a decree.
