The Hanukkah Magic of Nate Gadol

“The Hanukkah Magic of Nate Gadol is a beautiful story with breathtaking illustrations. A must read for all.” – Momma Braga

Synopsis

Nate Gadol is a great big spirit with eyes as shiny as golden coins and a smile that is lantern-bright. He can make anything last as long as it is needed, like a tiny bit of oil that must stretch for eight nights, a flower that needs to stay fresh to cheer up someone ailing, or a small lump of chocolate that grows to allow the Glasers to treat their children over the holiday and, during a harsh winter when medicine is needed more than sweets, spurs them to share what little they have with the O’Malleys.

In this charming holiday hybrid story, well-known children’s author and editor Artur A. Levine pairs with award-winning illustrator Kevin Hawkes to offer a mystical, magical take on the way Jewish families came to give and receive gifts over Hanukkah, just as their Christian neighbors do at Christmas, thanks to a loving spirit named Nate Gadol working behind the scenes – together with a certain jolly old soul.

#MelAndNikkiReview

The Hanukkah Magic of Nate Gadol is a beautiful children’s story about the magic of Hanukkah. We loved reading this tale which was full of kindness and magic. It touched upon the Jewish Holiday of Hanukkah which I was able to explain to my six-year old who enjoyed learning about the different religious holidays. So important to enrich our children with the knowledge of other holidays and cultures.

We also loved seeing Santa and Nate Gadol join together to help one another. The real magic of any holiday is the love, kindness and support we can give each other. That was our favorite!

Therefore, for this #MelAndNikkiReview we give it 8 candles out of 8! We love this story and the illustrations are breathtaking. The gold texture details on each page truly adds that magical touch. We recommend this story to all.

When We Stayed Home | Book Review

When We Stayed Home is a children’s story that encompasses all that the world has been going through this pandemic. It provides a platform and a positive environment for children to speak about their feelings.” – Momma Braga

Synopsis

When Covid-19 traveled the globe, we were prompted to stay home, wash our hands frequently, socially distance and wear masks to remain safe and help the helpers. For children who don’t yet grasp the concept of time and haven’t weathered enough life to understand the art of endurance, it’s been a particularly complicated and sometimes trying time. When We Stayed Home looks at one young boy’s pandemic journey and through colorful illustrations and heartfelt prose we see how he has used his trusty imagination and childlike creativity to navigate the trials of staying home day after day, becoming a super-helper in the process while missing family, friends, school and the “normal” life he once knew.

From decorating adorable toilet paper-shaped sugar cookies, building forts, painting and doing puzzles to frequent screen dates and dance parties with family and friends, young children will relate to his joys and sadnesses and how they too found connection and even serene moments of happiness while isolating. The book will comfort, entertain, and stir conversation about feelings and experiences the youngest stay-at-homers have experienced during these improbable times. Written by Tara Fass, LMFT and Judith A. Proffer, the book was inspired by Proffer’s five year-old nephew, who continued to find big moments of mirth in home, nature, adventures and activities while at times tearfully longing for the virus to go far, far away. Licensed Family and Marriage Therapist Fass has worked with families during the pandemic to navigate its bumpy road with tools, optimism and hope.

Along with the family dog as his trusty sidekick, When We Stayed Home’s super-helper builds virus-free forts, decorates silly toilet paper-shaped cookies, enjoys screen visits and dance parties with family and friends, and relies on his resourceful creativity and imagination to weather the virus storm.

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give it 5 stars out of 5. A real story that allows children to express their feelings and to know that they have not been alone. A sensitive topic for many as these times have not been easy for many families but this story brings out the positive and allows families to talk about it in a healthy way.

The impact of Covid and quarantine on families and children today is something we’ll be discussing for decades to come, attempting to make sense of it all.  It’s essential to talk about the ‘tough stuff,’ about real feelings. If we’re having awkward conversations, chances are we’re acting out less that which is not understood.  By not shutting down what feels unspeakable we get out of our own way sooner and are the better for it.”

In The Half Room Book Review

In The Half Room gives us a full beautiful story in halves. A great children’s story that opens up conversations on perspectives. Truly delightful.” – Momma Braga

Synopsis

The half room is full of half things. A half chair, a half cat, even half shoes – all just as nice as whole things. When half a knock comes on half a door, who in the world could it be?

With inventive flair, Caldecott Honoree Carson Ellis explores halves and wholes in an ingenious and thought-provoking picture book. Ink and gouache illustrations featuring wry detail and velvety textures conjure a dreamlike mood while leaving space for imagining. A celebration of the surreal and the serendipitous and the beauty of the two together, this brilliant picture book will have readers seeing halves with whole new eyes.

#MelAndNikkiReview

In The Half Room truly brought out the whole in halves. 😉 It was an intriguing story to read and got us talking about how we see things in our world. Two halves make a whole and that can be applied with relationships. This is why sometimes we say, “This is my better half.”

It was such a delightful read and the best part of this book for us was having Nikki read it to us on her own. It makes reading time that more fun for me and watching how proud she was to read it. Of course the concept of a half cat had her giggling especially when the other half started to interact with the other half. You will need to read the story to find out what we mean. 😉

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give this book 10 stars out of 5! An intriguing and delightful story that will have you opening the conversations on perceptions and how sometimes you need to look at things half full.

“This book was fun to read and I really liked the cat part. Two halves do make a whole and it can always be found.” – Nikki, Age 6

Jessica Love returns with a joyful story of friendship and individuality in this radiant follow-up to Julián Is A Mermaid.

#MelAndNikkiReview

Julián at the Wedding is a beautiful children’s story that embraces uniqueness, friendship and love. We truly enjoyed reading this book and Nikki loved how kind Julián is with his new friend Marisol. We also enjoyed the joy everyone was having in celebrating love at a wedding.

We got a sneak peek at the author’s interview on her book and we loved her answer of what she hopes the reader gets out of her book.

“It’s also a story about making a friend by sharing a feeling of complicité, about connecting in a moment of vulnerability. It is a story about the power of dress-up, and it’s a celebration of nature, love, and of course, dancing. I suppose my hope for the book is a simple one: that it will make people happy.” – Jessica Love

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give it 5 stars out of 5! If you would like to purchase this book, click here.

The Boy and the Gorilla

The Boy and the Gorilla is a beautiful children’s story that will tug at your heart strings. A story that gently depicts  the tender relationship between a young boy mourning his mother as he finds a path to healing. Articulated with words and illustrations perfectly. A powerful story in the talk of loss.” – Momma Braga

Synopsis

On the day of his mother’s funeral, a young boy conjures the very visitor he needs to see: a gorilla. Wise and gentle, the gorilla stays on to answer the heart-heavy questions the boy hesitates to ask his father: Where did his mother go? Will she come back home? Will we all die? Yet with the gorilla’s friendship, the boy slowly begins to discover moments of comfort in tending flowers, playing catch, and climbing trees. Most of all, the gorilla knows that it helps to simply talk about the loss – especially with those who share your grief and who may feel alone, too.

#MelAndNikkiReview

The Boy and the Gorilla truly tugged at my heart strings as I read the story to my daughter. It opened up more dialogues in the conversation of loss. We loved the questions the little boy asked as they are very common questions that children do ask. But sometimes as adults we may not know how to answer them as they can be tough ones for us. However, the Gorilla answers them beautifully and so simple.

In this story, the Gorilla helps this young boy find the path to healing through their shared grief and bond. This path leads the young boy to talk to his father where they both can bond and heal together. Just absolutely perfect! The author and illustrator did a superb job in articulating with words and illustrations on the toughest topic; loss.

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give this book 10+++ hearts out of 5! Loss has always been a hard topic for many and one that is comforting to see in children’s literature. I truly believe this story is one that will help children better understand and will start the toughest dialogue that we as parents may be uncomfortable with. Nikki truly enjoyed this story and the answers comforted her. We have had a loss in our lives this year and we used this book to help her better understand. It did just that and Nikki knows that those special people who are no longer with us, are always in our hearts.

“When will I feel better? When you know she’s still with you.”

If you would like to purchase this heartfelt story, click here. The age recommendation is four to eight on this book.

Fauja Singh Keeps Going

Fauja Singh Keeps Going is based on a true story that will inspire all to keep going no matter the obstacles that may stand in your way.” – Momma Braga

Synopsis

Every step forward is a victory.

Fauja Singh was born determined. He was also born with legs that wouldn’t allow him to play cricket with his friends or carry him to school miles from his village in Punjab. But that didn’t stop him. Working on his family’s farm, Fauja grew stronger to meet his own full potential.

He never stopped striving. At the age of 81, after a lifetime of making his body, mind, and heart stronger, Fauja decided to run his first marathon. He went on to break records all around the world and became the first person over 100 to complete the grueling long-distance race.

With exuberant text by Simran Jeet Singh and exhilarating illustrations by Baljinder Kaur, the true story of Fauja Singh reminds us that both where we start and how we finish that make our journeys unforgettable.

#MelAndNikkiReview

Fauja Singh Keeps Going is a children’s story that will inspire everyone. Based on a true story, the author and illustrator articulates beautifully all of Fauja’s struggles and how he accomplished what many thought would be impossible. When you think he has accomplished it all, he takes it even one step further. When he was 100, he ran the Toronto Waterfront Marathon and was the oldest person in the world to run a marathon. What an amazing accomplishment and we love that this moment in history happened in our hometown! 🙂

We loved how he took any doubt or sadness in his life and turned it around to something positive. I think one of my favorite parts is when he would remember what his mom would tell him and that was the inspiration that he would use.

“You know yourself, Fauja, and you know what you’re capable of. Today is a chance to do your best.”

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give this book 10 stars out of 5! We love the positivity it brings to the Sikh community; the inspirational message about how determination and grit can help you overcome obstacles; and we love reading the story of Fauja. Make sure to check the back of the book where you get to learn more about Fauja and see all of his amazing records!

Fairy Science Solid, Liquid, Gassy

Fairy Science Solid, Liquid, Gassy is an absolute must read as it inspires the inner scientists within us all. For the world has always something new to discover.” – Momma Braga

Synopsis

Esther likes facts and evidence. But fairies use magic wands and mix magic potions. That can make the land of Pixieville a frustrating place for a budding scientist.

When an entire pond goes missing, the other fairies are convinced it disappeared by magic. But Esther’s sure that there’s a scientific explanation…one that doesn’t involve a thirsty ogre.

Fairy and science fans alike will love Esther’s spellbinding introduction to the water cycle!

#MelAndNikkiReview

Fairy Science Solid, Liquid, Gassy is the must read children’s book as it offers the triple threat: interesting storyline, amazing illustrations and a dash of humor. Those are my top three reasons to love a book. Fairy Science knocks all three out of this world!

We love how the story opens up the world of science to kids and we love how Esther asks important questions even though people don’t believe her. They are fairies after all who do love to dabble in magic. 😉 We also loved learning about the transformation of solid to liquid to gassy. Nikki loved giggling to Fig (Esther’s friend) who made the book truly funny for little ones with his funny sayings. “My favourite part is when he said I think mine peed. I laughed so much!” – Nikki, Age 6

We both agreed that our favourite part was the bonus included in the book which is a step by step experiment that you can try at home with your kids to show condensation. Nikki loved doing it and she has been conducting her own experiments since and it has been amazing to watch her love for science grow. Children’s books like these open the doors for little ones and it allows them to grow.

Therefore, it is no surprise that Fairy Science Solid, Liquid, Gassy got a glowing review with 10 stars out of 5! We recommend this book for your reading line-up and it is great for children who are between the ages of three and seven. What type of science experiments have you and your kids been up to lately? Let us know in the comment section below. 😉
