Review of the book

A Lesson Learned, June 17, 2013

This review is from: Life's Lessons with the Silly Animals out on the Ranch: What Is Wrong with Bob the Rooster? (Paperback)

What Is Wrong with Bob the Rooster is the first book in a series for young children by Cindy Crawford Garrett. The series, Life's Lessons with the Silly Animals out on the Ranch, has positive social themes. The focus in this story is following the rules and what can happen when we do not do so. It highlights a positive team approach, with the animals using their skills to help Bob the Rooster out of a difficult situation. The illustrations are cleverly done in crayon, which is appealing to young children. It is a good read-to-me book or for the beginning reader. This book is a good story, with delightful characters that kids, parents, and teachers will enjoy.

Mini Interview:

Why did you write this book? 
This was my first book, In hopes to reinforce a lesson of consequences for actions therefore if you go somewhere or do something you are told not to there might be problems. 

Anything in particular you'd like to share about this book or it's creation? 
This was an actual event when I noticed our rooster had string wrapped around his legs although my husband actually cut the strings off. 

What can we expect to see from you in the future?
 I have two other books out as of to date. I am working on two more now, one is actually the values of work in our country which involve around our animals conversation. Another about a nightmare which was actually a dream. I have lots more stories which there are a lot of lessons to teach and to install in our children. These books I have written and am writing are simple and to the point which I believe are easy for children to understand.
