"Grayson the Bully frog with Ted and Raymond"

"Grayson the Bully Frog with Ted and Raymond" is a great book describing #bullying and how it feels for a young child. It is simply put and easy for young #children understand. It also shows that not only the person bullying #hurts, but also the people who let it happen. The story is written with frogs as the characters to #lessen the chance that a child can relate too closely. This was a wonderful fay to portray this delicate and important #social issue to young children. It could also be a fabulous way to start a conversation on the subject.

"African Safari with Ted and Raymond"

"African Safari with Ted and Raymond" is a well-illustrated #children's book. There are several great pictures to accompany the #adventures of #Ted and #Raymond on their #African #safari. I especially liked the #illustrations of the #wild #animals in the latter part of the book. I also liked the information provided about these animals in their natural habitat.

I think Author Rhonda Patton has provided a great #educational opportunity for children to learn about #airplane rides and animal life. This is sure to broaden the horizons of the younger #reading audience and enhance their reading pleasure.

"Dylan & the Croak Orleans Gang"

"Not long ago, I was reading a piece about Kristin Davis, an actress from the show Sex and the City who mentioned the books she reads to her children. One of the books I was not familiar with. In an amazon search, I found many books by this author, Rhonda Patton. The title #Dylan and the #Croak #Orleans #Gang caught my attention right away. I grew up in #Louisiana and made many trips to #New #Orleans. To my pleasant surprise, this book is about a road trip to Croak Orleans. #Cajun books for kids are not easy to find, and I quickly downloaded for my four-year old niece. This book is as beautifully written as it is illustrated. The characters are animals that are common to the Louisiana area. The #colors used throughout will be very familiar to anyone native to this state. The story line is about a band that slowly comes together as a result of the other animals Dylan the #frog meets on his trip. One of my favorite parts is all of the animals being frightened when an #alligator wants to befriend them, but they are quickly swayed by his #musical abilities and invite him into the #band. I do not usually carry on like this about #books, but it has been a long time since I came across a childrens book this original, enriching, and fun. I will be 'one clicking' more from this author!" -- Amazon Review

"Simpson, the slimy snake, slithers sideways"

Simpson the Slimy Snake Slithers Sideways by Rhonda Patton and Chester McDaniel is a cute book with rhymes about real and #imaginary #animals doing different things, including #eating, #riding on a #van and #drinking #tea. It's a very good way to help young children's learn the alphabet and the sounds of each letter. Rhonda goes from #A-#Z with the animals and she includes from #3-#6 words beginning with the same #letter for each #animal. The images are very cute, colorful and almost look 3-D.

Raymond bites down on his food and experiences sharp pain so he makes an appointment with the dentist. He is #afraid to go to the #dentist and telephones his best friend Ted who volunteers to drive him. Ted #encourages him by relating his own #experience with the dentist. Patton carefully delineates the steps of a #dental #visit. After the #cavity is filled, Raymond tells Ted that it wasn't so bad and that his #fears were unfounded. From now on he will take steps to take better care of his teeth. Patton explains to children why they need not fear a visit to the dentist. She also clearly demonstrates how valuable a good #friendship can be when friends share and support each other in times of need. This book can be used as an introduction to the #dentist or a read aloud about how friends should treat each other.
