Hi!! Even though I read this book weeks ago and now have it wrapped under the tree for my cousin's absolutely adorable little girl (recently turned 2) for whatever reason, I'm just now getting to reviewing it. ?? No idea why as it was such a cute book!
*About The Author*
Dr. MaryAnn Diorio was born with a pen in her hand. She has been writing since her teen years when a poem she penned, entitled “The Beauty of Stars,” won an award in a national poetry contest.
Dr. MaryAnn, as she is affectionately called, loves children, dogs, and chocolate. Writing is her passion, and writing fiction, in particular. Her stories deal with the deepest issues of the human heart. She writes in her home writing studio and has been seen writing at Starbuck’s, Panera’s, and in her local Barnes & Noble café. She never leaves town without her laptop, a notebook, and a pen.
MaryAnn resides in New Jersey with her husband Dom, a retired physician. They are blessed with two wonderful daughters, a fantastic son-in-law, and a precious little granddaughter who is the joy of their lives.
In her spare time, Dr. MaryAnn loves to read, to paint in oils, acrylics, pastels, pen & ink, and colored pencil. She also enjoys playing the piano and making up silly songs for her little granddaughter. She is also an avid treadmiller, aka one who walks on a treadmill for exercise.
*Why my rating is what it is*
My rating is five stars because even the verse taken a bit out of context can ultimately help their learning if explained by the reader. The book is engaging and is perfect for little kids. :)
*I received this book from MaryAnn Diorio and Bookfun.org in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts were my own and I was not compensated in any other way.
*Where to buy it*
Have a great week and enjoy any shopping you may do on Friday!!
