Snow Comes In The Night | The Snowbear by Sean Taylor


Title: The Snowbear
By: Sean Taylor
Genre: Picture Book
Pages: 32
Release Date: October 3rd, 2017
Publisher: words & pictures

Summary from Goodreads: Snow comes in the night, and Iggy and Martina make a snowbear. But then a sledge ridge takes them deep into the woods. How will they get back home again? 

The Snowbear is a spellbinding story about the magic of snow and the power of a child's imagination. With a simple text and beautiful illustrations, it will be read again and again. Themes of friendship,
loyalty, and bravery make it a great choice for story time, as a bedtime read or on car trips. Children will love the crisp, wintry setting brought to life by Claire Alexander’s art.


Review: Since I have a four year old, I love to pick up a picture book every once and a while to review. Usually, my son and I will sit down and read the book together, this way I can get a true review on how kids will love it as well as how much moms love it, and we all know that if mom doesn't like it, she won't read it again.

My son seemed to listen to the story ok, but he didn't ask me to read it again like he usually does with books he is interested in. 

My take on the story was kind of lackluster. I thought the pictures were great and the concept was awesome, but the way the story was written didn't really vibe with me. I think I'm going to have to give this book a solid three stars. 


Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
