About This Series
“Free e-book of the week” combines two of my favorite things – Books and Free 😉 This is my way of nudging the hibernating (ahem! to be honest, almost on the verge of a coma) bookworm in me (and hopefully in many other parents out there like me) out of slumber and back into the reading habit. Through this series, I hope to introduce good e-books and authors to FertileBrains Readers and in the process re-ignite my and others love for books. I will be talking mostly about children’s books and parenting books in this series but may digress from time to time to include any other interesting reads I may encounter on the way.
I Love To Keep My Room Clean
Last week, I talked about two books for Mother’s Day: one for the children to understand and appreciate a mother’s love “Who Took My Banana?” by Author Sally Huss and one for the grown-ups “Well-Crafted Mom” by Author Kathleen Ann Harper. This week, I am reviewing a quite useful children’s Kindle ebook called “I Love To Keep My Room Clean” by Author Shelley Admont.
For the uninitiated, Kindle e-books are not just for reading them through your Kindle reader. You can read them even if you do not own a kindle. Any phone, tablet or PC can be used for reading these e-books by installing the corresponding app for free on your respective devices. Please refer to this link for more information and download options.
About The Book
Mommy Bunny leaves her three little bunnies including Jimmy with Daddy Bunny one lazy Saturday morning to visit Granny Bunny. The children promise to be responsible and grown-up and to keep their room clean when Mommy Bunny returns in the evening. But then fun takes over and being expert mess-makers that they are, the little bunnies end up creating “the mother of all messes”. What happens next? Do they succeed in cleaning their room up before mommy comes back? Read on to find out.
- First things first, the reason I downloaded and read this book to Sonny was of course, because he is “messy-messerson” when it comes to keeping his room clean and tidy. So I automatically gravitated to the title of the book. And I am glad I did as it is a really good book to teach children the value of containing the mess in their rooms.
- The illustrations are beautiful and detailed just like the author’s other books and the children are quite fascinated by the little bunnies and their activities, especially Jimmy’s.
- Although the book says it is a beginning reader, I disagree. This is a good book to be read to the little children under 6 by their parents but I don’t think they can read it by themselves yet as the sentences are long and they may need help reading some of the words.
- I absolutely love how the bunnies make up the boring task of cleaning up their room fun by inventing cleaning games. There are quite a few practical solutions presented in the book for us to try out with our children and help them contain the mess.
- Another good thing about the author’s books is that they are available in multiple languages.
- All in all, a good book to add to your little children’s library for bedtime or afternoon quiet time reading.
