Watchful Wednesdays – A Review of Tadeo Turtle by Lorilyn Roberts

Tadeo Turtle - Written and Illustrated by Janis Cox

Tadeo Turtle – Written and Illustrated by Janis Cox

Lorilyn’s Review:

The endearing image of Tadeo and his problem will make this a favorite story for young and old alike—a story with which we can all identify.

Tadeo Turtle is a one-of-a-kind children’s book with a wonderful message—God has made you perfectly just the way you are. In addition to being entertaining and imparting a strong spiritual message, the illustrations will capture the heart and mind of a young child.

What is Taste and See? And Free?

Taste and See - volume 2

Taste and See and Free is an opportunity to get a free book of Christian authors’ books that you can decide whether you want to purchase them.

Just as we used to do in a bookstore – glance through the books and see if we want to buy them – this is your online chance to look through books before you buy.

Late last year I joined a group called John 3:16 Network, run by Lorilyn Roberts. On Twitter the hashtag is #john316books.

At the end of the year I was privileged to enter Tadeo Turtle, my children’s book for ages 2-7, into the second volume of Taste and See – a compilation of over 30 authors and their books. You get to have a taste and see of the book before you buy it.

There are links to each of the author’s books in the Taste and See volume.

You can download the book for free here:

Click here to download in .pdf format

Click here to download in Kindle format

Click here to download in Nook format

Please enjoy this wonderful look at Christian authors and their books.

Watchful Wednesdays – Book Launch Tour – Lorilyn Roberts

by Lorilyn Roberts author of The Donkey and the King.

SmallTheDonkeyandtheKing_LorilynRoberts

A donkey longs for an easier life with no heavy burdens and no one to tell him what to do. He runs away and becomes lost, but “good” finds him in the most unlikely of places.

Travel to the Bible lands and meet Baruch, a stubborn donkey, and other lovable animals:  Lowly, the pig; Much-Afraid, a small, lame dog; Worldly Crow, who isn’t as bright as he thinks he is; and a sheep, Little, sent on a special mission by the King. The ending of the story will delight young readers as they discover “good” exists in the world if they look and listen for it.

When I was young, I hated doing chores. I suppose I was this donkey, rebellious and self-determined, but desperate for a friend—the one friend who would never leave me (or you).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here is a short excerpt from The Donkey and the King. This is the second stop on the tour. I hope you will visit all the blogs and participate in the John 3:16 Marketing Network Book Launch and win the grand prize. See details below.

Worldly Crow squawked, “You’re making a big mistake. I know because I’ve been around. You’re headed for trouble.”

Much Afraid, a brown and white crippled dog, followed close behind.
“Please don’t go,” she cried.

*~*~*~*~*

On every page is the hidden word “good.” Can you find it in the drawings above? If not, you can look below and see where the word is hidden.

The unique quality about Kindle-enhanced books is that the drawings and font size can be enlarged for young readers. And for parents who can’t find the word, a QR code (a free AP is available for smart phones) and link is provided to facilitate the search. Some pages are more challenging than others (for older readers).

If you enjoyed looking for the mouse in “Goodnight Moon” when you were young, your child will delight in looking for “good” in “The Donkey and the King.” The moral:  There is good in the world if you look and listen for the King’s voice.

Tadeo Turtle - Written and Illustrated by Janis Cox

Tadeo Turtle – Written and Illustrated by Janis Cox

Tadeo, pronounced TAHD-ay-OH, comes from the name Thaddeus, which means “heart” or “praise.”

Tadeo befriends an energetic squirrel and longs to be able to run and climb like his friend.

In a dream, Tadeo loses his shell and enjoys his new freedom–until a large hungry cat appears and mistakes Tadeo for a rat. Will Tadeo escape unharmed? When Tadeo awakes from his dream, his response proves he is aptly named.

Tadeo Turtle won the Best Children’s Book for 2013 by The Word Awards in Canada.
