Though I found the poetry forced. It would read aloud well as the rhythm stayed true, it was more the word order that bothered me.
When I read children's stories I imagine reading them to my four kids... when they were kids. Back then we had goats and chickens, ducks, a dog and a cat. Thank goodness we had a barn! A discussion would have followed the read. We would have talked about how nice it was for the lady to take in her cold, wet friends. How we should always try to be kind to others, golden rule recited. How our animals give us so much including food, love and laughs.
There were pages that might work better in paper form, such as the picture of the friends with the lady in the bed were cut in half. I have no idea how that could be fixed for Kindle or epub.
Thank you for sharing this sweet book with me. I would give this four stars. I thinks it is fantastic for a first!

It must have been in one of my weak moments. The picture of the cute little bunnies and a freebie Kindle book. Who couldn't resist? I grabbed it then sit it aside for another time. And found it again when inbetween fictional stories.
I had hoped there would be lots of pictures of rabbits in this ebook. I love rabbits but there isn't room in our small apartment for another pet. But at least I could look at the pictures. Nope. The only picture is on the cover.
This didn't spoil it for me, though. This little book is chocked full of information about finding, care and feeding of rabbits, even a bit on breeding these little sweeties. I was quite amazed at how much there was to learn, beyond what I already knew from the rabbits we had when my adult children were small.
This would be a great book for those thinking of buying bunnies for loved ones for Easter. One needs to know what they are getting into, and there are too many rabbits that end up at the animal shelters shortly after the holidays. For those who are thinking about it seriously, try the shelter after reading the book. Have the home bunny-ready with kitty litter set up. They make great indoor pets. Also, know the breeds so that you get just what you are looking for in a pet.(less)

I picked this up for free for my Kindle. I had a few moments between shiny things and decided to read it. There isn't much of a story but the illustrations were sweet. I, especially, liked the smiling turtle baby coming out of its shell. Not very scientifically correct, but would do well as a bedtime read. (less)

I wish there was so much more! Thank you, Ms. Donna Morang for letting us ride along with you on your ESL adventures! I had such a marvelous time that I am going to look into this. I am 62 and not getting any younger, but this sounds like such fun that I need to find a way to do it. I highly recommend this book to everyone! What a cool lady!(less)

It is written hinting toward the old English language similar to Lord of the Rings or Shakespeare. And that language quirk is the very thing that lessened the rating for me.
The world that Sandy Hunter built was so interesting. Since I write about sentient planets it was fun to read about sentient forests. And the characters were wonderful. The main character is a strong fem who wishes for a fair and equal life for all. She refuses to be the lady fair and seeks to create a fund for womyn who wish to be independent. Imagine Tolkien creating such a character!
The book begins with the main character flying and as she grows in character she learns to use this ability she can save others. I must admit that it was in the flying that won me over.
I look forward to the sequel.
Oh, and I wish to thank BookRooster dot com for recommending this complimentary Kindle title for review.(less)

According to how you are counting this was the third (including the prequel) or the second in the series. The main character is a strong Oklahoma school teacher turned Goddess Incarnate. Shannon is a likable person in a mirror image of the previous GI Rhiannon. Except Rhiannon chose the dark side and ended up in Oklahoma while Shannon ended up in Partholon. Oops, but that changes somewhat in this book.
I don't want to give anything more away. Get ready to laugh or cry and possibly puke uncontrollably. The book holds you captive until you are gently set free.
I have ordered the next in the series, Divine by Blood. Can't wait to start reading it.
Let this be a lesson to those who find libraries to be places that steal away the profits. I accidentally checked out number five in this series. I couldn't follow it though I could tell I would love the book had I known more about the characters and the world. So I went online and have been buying and reading, in order these marvelous Kindle books. Though they are not lending enabled (a pity for those in this horrid economy that may not be able to afford them) they are at least text-to-speech enabled. That means when my eyes were tired I could still follow the story. Thank you!
P. C. Cast writes in a way that makes you feel you are a part of the story and her humor is always evident. She writes like she could be your best fem friend. Kudos for a job well done!(less)
