Thurston T. Turtle and the Legend of the Lemonade Review and Giveaway

Last year I was so excited to introduce you to a great children’s author named Micki Bare and was honored to review her first book, Thurston T. Turtle Moves to Hubbleville which happens to be all about a TURTLE!!  Micki brought Thurston to life and showed us a special world of animal characters with the most cleaver names. 

Well here we are again, Micki is on a publishing roll (how amazing  for her!!) and has yet a second children’s book all about Thurston T. Turtle. 
  I am happy to introduce all of my readers to book number 2...


Once again I feel like Micki really wrote a great book for all ages, especially us Turtle lovers.  This book is a little longer than the first book so it took us a couple of sessions to read it to Jude.  Jude really enjoyed the illustrations and pointing out the animals.  He is probably a little young for this book but I know that in a couple of years it will fit his personality.
I believe this book would be perfect for a 6-8 year old boy or girl.  This book is great for bedtime reading together or even great for the children to read on their own.  Easy to read and great story that will really attract the kiddos! 

I really enjoyed this second story about Thurston – this time we were brought into a little mystery about butter cookies and lemonade!  While Mr. Turtle's second grade class uncovers other similarities, it is the discovery of old letters, help from the scattered Mr. Possum and a visit to an old family friend that converge to reveal the legend of the lemonade. And the butter cookies, too, of course!  All of our old friends are back to share the mystery of the cookies and lemonade.  So fun!  

If you would like to own your own copy of “Thurston T Turtle And  The Legend Of The Lemonade” you can purchase it from Amazon for $12.95.  To learn more about this and other books by Micki Bare stop by her blog at Navigating Hectivity and her website at Inspired Scribe or follow her on Facebook and Twitter.

Micki has graciously offered TWO of my lovely readers a chance to meet up with Thurston yet again!!  Thank you Micki!
