As an added bonus, 100% of the proceeds from each sale will be donated to the family of Alyssa Mowery. Last October, Alyssa was struck by a car while crossing the street with her friend Mia Decker (deceased) and sister Rain (minor injuries). Although Alyssa has awakened from her coma and said her first word since the accident, she has a long way to go.
With your contribution and support, you can make a difference in this young girl's life.(synopsis from Amazon)
When I received Scott Gordon's email asking me to review his children's book, My Little Pet Dragon, my first thought was no. This isn't a genre I typically review. However, when I heard Alyssa's story and the wonderful generosity of this author, I couldn't help but spread the word. The book is delightful and all proceeds go to helping Alyssa and her family.
My Little Pet Dragon is a cute, funny, picture eBook that is sure to delight your little ones. Told from the child's POV, it tells the story of the pet dragon they received last Christmas. The child tells you all the stuff the dragon likes to do and each page shows colorful pictures of the dragon performing these various tasks. There is a silly twist at the end when the child receives this years Christmas present and it is sure to make your child giggle. The images are beautiful, the story whimsical and silly. The story is simple enough, that after a few reads, your child should be able to tell you the story. My children are in college, but as toddlers they would have loved this book.
My Little Pet Dragon is currently available only on Kindle. I reviewed this on my PC, and the images were crisp and clear. If you do not own a kindle, you can download the kindle app to your phone, personal computer, tablet and iPod. Treat your little one's to a fantastic picture book and help out a good cause. This eBook is scheduled to publish at B&N for the nook and a paperback version is in the works through Creative Space publishing. I will post an update as they become available.
Any blogger who would like to re-post my review to help out a good cause, please feel free to do so. To learn more about Alyssa and her story, see the links listed below.
Scott Gordon is also a fantasy writer so be sure and check out his website for his adult titles. The next children's book by Gordon is entitled:
I gave this delightful book 5 coffee cups out of 5 (or should that be milk?)
Update: My Little Pet Dragon is now available in Spanish. My Crazy Pet Frog has been published and 100% of the proceeds to all three books go toward helping Alyssa.
