    What a sweet story about a woman that loved animals so much she was willing to give up her restaurant to keep the cats around Now you do have to set aside reality and common sense as an adult, but children will love this book especially if they are animal lovers The story tells of how one woman put the needs of the cats she adored ahead of her restaurant when push came to shove I think it also might teach them some character skills.The graphics depict the story well, are very colorful and will h [...]

    I do not remember the last time I read a picture book, but it was so nice to read one again Mama Graciela s Secret is a really sweet book about a sweet abuelita that does what she loves and protects what she loves.Even though the story is less than 25 pages long I actually gasped when the someone threatened to take Mama Graciela s cats Even though it is a children s book with very little prose Calvani was able to get me invested in Mama Graciela s story At the end I felt proud of her decision at [...]

    I was given a copy of this book to be honestly reviewed The pictures in this book were really bright and colorful, keeping my two year old s attention nicely She LOVED the cats The story was sweet and made me a bit hungry haha Some of the words were a little advanced, and I m not sure young children are going to understand about the health inspector, but those could all be opportunities to learn and discuss things Older children will probably have no trouble with it at all.Cute story Bob and the [...]

    I have always maintained that I look for two elements in a children s book One, how well the book endears itself to the little readers, and two, the message that it puts across.It is indeed interesting when the two blend together nearer to the climax of the book And admittedly, children s books have the most heart warming of them This book faired well on both the aspects It follows the story of a restaurant owner who has to choose between her livelihood and her love for pets The great part of th [...]
