The Monster on Top of The Bed Family of Books - Review

I received complimentary downloads.

The  $2.99 Kindle version of The Monster on Top of the Bed is  because so many parents can easily afford to take advantage of this edition, and because it's filled with interesting features like the ability for a child to double-click on the words and see the words pop-up in a large format, which makes it fun to use and easy to read, even on a small device like a smartphone. 

But this is NOT just one book.  The Monster on Top of the Bed is just part of a family of books and audio books and activity guides that work together to create a fantastic experience for children.  What makes this experience so valuable is that the child actually gets to create their own story to banish their fears, and that they also get to spend hours coloring, learning to count, understanding phonics, etc.

Synopsis of The Monster on Top of the Bed
Once upon a time there was a little girl named Suzy, who used to jump up and down on her bed having just a great time. This scared a young critter named Karrit who lived under Suzy’s bed. But, Karrit heard Suzy do all sorts of nice things for people, and he wanted her to be his friend. Still, Suzy ate strange things like cakes made out of pans (pancakes) and the toes of toemays (tomatoes) and—he couldn’t believe it—he heard her talk about eating something truly horrendous.
One day Karrit heard Suzy tell her mother that she was lonely and needed a friend. Because of that Karrit decided to visit Suzy, and Suzy got to meet him. At first Suzy was scared of Karrit. After all, he had red, scaly legs, and a blue nose, but he seemed a little scared too. Suzy treated Karrit the way that she would want to be treated if she had gone to his house.

As they grew to know each other, Suzy found out that Karrit didn’t understand some English words. Suzy figured out what was confusing Karrit, and she was sorry to have scared him. She showed him a hotdog (she didn’t eat dogs that were hot) a tomato (she didn’t eat the toes of matoes) and a carrot (she definitely didn’t eat Karrits).
Suzy made Karrit feel that she liked him, and that she wanted him to be happy. Because of that, the two of them played. They kept getting to know each other better until one day they both realized that they didn’t have to be afraid of each other, and that it was a mistake for each of them to think the other was a
“monster.” Suzy and Karrit became best friends, and neither was afraid of monsters again.

Cassandra's Review- A cute and easy to read e-book that the kids enjoyed.

Children's Music CD "Sing the Bible" with Slugs & Bugs Review

 "Sing the Bible" by Slugs & Bugs. Sing The Bible is the fourth installment in the popular Slugs & Bugs CD series for families. Written by acclaimed singer/songwriter Randall Goodgame and produced by Ben Shive (Brandon Heath, Jeremy Camp) Sing The Bible is the first Slugs & Bugs release featuring exclusively word-for-word Scripture songs.

The collection of songs is overflowing with rich and varied collaborations. On highlights “Freedom” and "Trust in The Lord" (Galatians 5:1, Proverbs 3:5-6), Goodgame is joined by The African Children’s Choir.  “Alien” (Deuteronomy 14:21), features hilarious spoken dialogue from Sally Lloyd-Jones, best-selling author of The Jesus Storybook Bible, and on “For Us” (1 John 3:16), Goodgame shares lead vocals with his daughter, Livi. “The New Testament Song,” includes a memorable harmonica performance by harmonica legend Buddy Green, and "Deuteronomy 6:5" includes the surprising vocal contributions of Count Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Wolfman... and some singing bumblebees.

With infectious world beat and bluegrass influences, Sing The Bible raises the bar for children's music with such top Nashville musicians as Ron Block (Alison Krauss & Union Station), Stuart Duncan, (Dolly Parton, YoYo Ma), Dan Needham (Chris Tomlin, Michael McDonald), Jeff Taylor (Elvis Costello, Paul Simon) and others.

“These songs were written to help families learn scripture together,” Goodgame says. “My grand hope is that these Slugs & Bugs songs will help fasten God's word to the heart of all who listen. The musicians on Sing the Bible are some of the worlds best, but they did a masterful job of keeping the focus first and foremost on lifting up Scripture."

A singer and sought-after songwriter, Goodgame has penned selections for Caedmon’s Call, VeggieTales, Jason Gray and Ginny Owens, among others. Along with award-winning singer/songwriter Andrew Peterson, Goodgame created Slugs & Bugs & Lullabies in 2007 to an overwhelming response from parents. Goodgame, who now helms the series, has released A Slugs & Bugs Christmas (2010) and 2011’s Slugs & Bugs Under Where?, as well as a Slugs & Bugs Vacation Bible School curriculum. His popular Slugs & Bugs LIVE concert for families tours in and out of the country all year long.

Cassandra's Review-  This CD is great for families who have a super strong religious faith.   Now as a children's sing along, I would not want my kids to sing some of the lyrics and even though they come from the Bible, there is not always the most pleasant things in it.  If you love your God and want to praise him with your children, this would be a great gift.

Life AD 2: MIA by Michelle E Reed Tour and Giveaway

Title: Life AD 2: M.I.A.: Missing in Atman
Publication date: December 16, 2014
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.
Author: Michelle E. Reed

Dez is finally hitting her afterlife stride. She hasn’t missed a meeting or session in forty-two days, and she’s put the adventures and danger of her first days at Atman behind her. Life after death is becoming tolerable, yet nothing is quite what she’d hoped. Confusion over her feelings for Charlie, residual resentment over losing Hannah, and a continuous stream of unwanted assignments leave Dez restless and argumentative.

In a missed encounter with Crosby, her prying gaze lands upon a single entry in the datebook on his unoccupied desk. These few, hastily scribbled words reveal an enormous secret he’s keeping from her. Possessed by a painful sense of betrayal, she once again sneaks off to Atman City, determined to find answers to an unresolved piece of her life.

It begins as all their adventures do, but as light falls into darkness, a stop in an unfamiliar neighborhood sets forth a chaotic series of events. Dez will have to fight for her very existence, and will face painful, irreparable loss in an afterlife teeming with demons wielding ancient powers.

In M.I.A.: Missing in Atman, the second book in the Atman City series, Michelle E. Reed continues the story of Dez Donnelly, pushing her to her limits and surprising readers at every twist and turn of the vast world that is Atman.

Death was only the beginning.
