Wings and Feet touches the heart and soul with both children and adults enjoying author Reinicke's unique story of friendship, differences and discovering the bridge that unites them-the lesson: steadfast friends embracing individuality. I loved reading and rereading it with my grand-kids and the conversations it created.
I don't know if this will be true of everyone, but I burst into tears at the end of Lisa Reinicke's Wings and Feet. I'm not sure how a short children's book was able to bring me to tears so quickly, but it was definitely a cathartic experience. The circle of life was touched upon, and I'm a lover of all creatures great and small, so maybe that's why. There was something about this book that made me think of The Last Unicorn and of The Land Before Time, but I don't want to give everything away about it. You'll have to find out for yourself just how heartwarming it is. One of the best children's books I've ever read.
Lisa is a kid at heart. She's charming, witty, and knows how to communicate with children, the smaller the better! It was a great blessing to see her in action in six different Pre-K and kindergarten classrooms, and at our community Bedtime Reading program that evening.
Bart's Escape Out the Gate is delightful and has an excellent message for young readers, that of being responsible and fixing things which have been broken. The illustrations are vivid and lively and they make the characters and story come alive. Parents should read books like this to their children, and tutors and educators can use this story for read aloud sessions in classrooms because of its lovely message.
Lisa came to our MOPS group and spoke to the moms about the importance of reading to your children and it was so wonderful. She has such a sweet spirit and everyone enjoyed hearing about the books she has written. Thank you Lisa!!
Arnold The Cute Little Pig With Personality is adorable and children will love Arnold’s character even more when they get to know that it is based on the author’s cute little pet pig. The pictures also breathe life into the scenes and make them vivid to young readers. I like the manner in which the author weaves in the message of eating healthily and exercising through the story of Arnold.
Lisa was a pleasure to work with. Would definitely do it again if asked!
Lisa Reinicke has written a charming Christmas story in David’s Christmas Wish. Written in rhyming meter, the poem unfolds much like the much loved and very famous poem, “Twas the night before Christmas.” Not only does this delightful story capture the imaginative mind of a child, it also shows children how much parents love them and are willing to go to great lengths to grant their every wish. Complete with lovely illustrations by Scot McDonald, this story has the potential of being a popular Christmas treasure for children, young and old. For aren’t we all children at heart?
