Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
Like most little girls who get books read to them when they are growing up, I like to read.
Seriously, I still like when my mommy or daddy (he gets all excited and makes funny noises) read to me.
We go to the library and borrow to the limit. In this way, daddy says we don’t have to give yet more money to Apple or Google … just to read.
Of course, we come upon some really good books sometimes. Some not so good ones, too.
I thought to tell my dear readers which ones I like and which ones I don’t.
And I am interested in your opinions, too.
And any good books you discover. Please share.
Goldilocks and Just One Bear is one even my daddy liked. Maybe more than me.
At the end, daddy paused, and ahemmed and scratched his head and chuckled and smiled and then said, “That reminds me … ”
And he began to tell me some more stories about Goldilocks and the bears.
Daddy says when a book gets your creative juices (they are related to apple and orange juice) going … it’s a good book.
And Goldilocks and Just One Bear is one of those kinds of books.
It is written by somebody named Wonky. How cool is that! Her real name is Leigh Hodgkinson.
Buy it. Borrow it. But get your hands on it and read it. It’s fun.
