This is my first children's book review, and I felt that this was a good place to start. As anyone who knows me knows, I love having books in my house for both myself and my children. I personally struggled with reading as a young child but I always loved stories. Before I could read, I loved listening to my mother read all sorts of exciting stories to my brother, sister, and I. When I did learn how to read, the love of the written word never died.

One way that I love to receive books is through

Detailed review on Life as Freya

I don’t usually review Children’s Books and I’m most probably not the best judge of them since I don’t have children of my own. However, though it’s been years since I’ve been a child, children’s books still transport me to my childhood. It is from this forever child that the review comes. :)

The plot is a simple one about the bridge of friendship and yet it has a lot of depth and learnings to take away. There are multiple morals to the story but the message is put

For school age children friendships mean almost everything to them. Most children want to fit in and be accepted by the general crowd of peers. Yet sometimes, there is a child that is feared because he or she may be very different. The main character in this story Babbar is faced with the dilemma of being a lonely and an outrageously feared animal. Babbar must overcome his awful loneliness without causing the other animals to flee his presence. The author does a terrific job of helping his read

Friendship is something that is hard to explain to children. They innately know they want people to like them, but what is the benefit? This book shows how a friendship can change someone. The animals are traveling for the winter and begin to take a detour around the Tadoba Forest because of the terrible Babbar. Babbar is a tiger that is known for scaring everyone. Almost an entire flock of geese died because of him. They rest before continuing their journey around the forest and celebrated a ho ...more

The animals of the Tadoba forest are all afraid of Babbar, the tiger. He is very scary and is said to have killed a flock of geese with his roar alone. "He is the undisputed king of Tadoba. He can get anything he wants anytime he wants ... except for happiness." Then Babbar meets the comedic donkey Hasmukh, who is full of life but also scares easily. Will a friendship blossom between this unlikely pair?

The book begins with a handy list of the characters, including their pictures and names. What

The Magic of Friendship is just that, the authors share how having a friend can certainly bring joy and brightness to our life, thus changing us forever! Beautifully done illustrations allow the reader to easily envision the story while the words smoothly flow off the pages creating a visual feast that will certainly keep youngsters, and the not so young, mesmerised as the story unfolds! Babbar was a fierce tiger who has basically scared everyone away, but when a scared, but silly donkey brings

I thought this book was an exception story for children. My son loved the beautifully crafted artwork, and really enjoyed the tale.
What I liked most about this book, is in the fashion of old 80s cartoons, the story has a deep meaning to it which helps to instil morals and values, yet it does it in a completely non-preaching way, it is a beautiful story, with a beautiful moral within the pages.
You can bet that me and my son will be reading more works by the author.

The Magic of Friendship is the tale of a friendship born from two unlikely allies. This is a really cute book that teaches that things are not always what they seem. The book is well illustrated and one that kids can easily relate to. This book is appropriate all the way up to 3rd grade reading level. My first grader was able to read it easily! 4 fangs!
