5 W's Review

The 5 W's mini reviews. Are short and quick reviews. This does not mean that the books were taken lightly or that the were not as good as any other book. This is just a way for me to get through all the books I have read and a way for me to keep track of the books.

Meet Einstein; Mariela Kleiner

Snowball's Antarctic Adventure; Tim Ostermeyer

In Search of the Light; Leonard Jacobson


Meet Einstein is a science book for preschoolers. Einstein helps to introduce your kids to the concepts of light and gravity. Meet Einstein helps them make connections in everything they see and do, and teaches them that science is all around them.

Meet Einstein Review

Who: What better role model than Einstein. Who wouldn't want their child to grow up to be a scientist or at least think like one.

What: The point is to get children thinking! 

Where: Everywhere! Science can be found in and around everything.

When: I would read this during the day so you can explore what science has to offer with my son. It's a lot of fun and great benefits.

Why: What a creative way to get children thinking and doing. Meet Einstein meets all of my requirements in a children's book. Right down to the nifty and well illustrated pictures. Educational, playful, and with a tiny pinch of wacky.

How: Mariela Kleiner's Site

Snowball see's nothing but Emperor Penguins, He steps out of his box to tour Antarctica to see other wildlife and scenics

Snowball's Antarctic Adventures Review

Who: Snowball has some sight seeing and learning adventures. Oh boy, what a cute story. The pictures are amazing!

What: You can expect the most amazing photography along with some interesting facts about penguins. The only thing is the typo I noticed.

Where: Antarctic of course!

When: This is a great read, I would read this anytime of the day. I can see any age of kids could enjoy this.

Why: Snowball's adventures of learning are not just learning experiences, it's also so much fun. 

How: Tim Ostermeyer's Site


Come on a journey of discovery with Ned the Horse, Peter Rabbit, Bert the brave little Bumblebee and Molly Mouse as they set off in search of the light.

Guided by the wind, our reluctant heroes pass through the forest of fear, eventually finding their way to a land where nothing seems right. Following instructions given to them by several wise characters they meet along the way, they discover a path which leads them straight to the source of the light. When they find what they are searching for, they are so amazed that they laugh and dance with joy and delight.

In Search of the Light Review

Who: Ned the horse was brave and led the fearsome four on their journey to find light.

What: They found so much more then life, they found beauty within along with life's decisions.

Where: This took place in a forest along with a land were things are not what they seem, you should look look into yourself to find the light.

When: This is very colorful and relaxing, even if there is a witch. I'd recommend this for a bedtime read.

Why: The story is a wonderful tale, with AMAZING illustrations. I still can't get over them. BEAUTIFUL
