Booklover105 Stars Out Of 5Great memories with my kidsNovember 9, 2015Booklover10Quality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was looking forward to reading this book to my children. We have been studying Africa in school and I knew this book would be a great one to add to our reading list. Needless to say, this book has been stolen off my shelf countless times by my son who has decided that he wants to read it again by himself. That says a lot if a 7-year-old has fallen in love with this! I'm always looking for a book to grab his attention, and this book had it all... full of adventure and a great book for the imagination. I even found myself going back into a childhood imagination as I was reading this story.
Mu was a little difficult to hear about for my kids as he is orphaned. My children felt so bad for him and it led to them asking a lot of questions. The book lender itself to deeper questions with the imagination anyway. There was a lot of thoughts about choices and the need to be watchful because it's so easy to follow others into a path that isn't good.
Another attractive thing about this book is it has pictures! This is another plus for a mother who is reading to her children. And since the story is set in Africa, what child doesn't like to see pictures or hear stories of African animals?!
I love how this book was write by J. A. Myhre to her four children as a special story to give to them for Christmas. How beautiful a gift that is to your children. With Christmas coming and so many parents looking for books to read for the 24 days of Christmas book list, this should be added. It'll take longer than a day to read it with your kids probably, but the conversation and the trip you all will take in your imaginations together will be some wonderful memories.
I received this book free from Litfuse Publicity Group and New Growth Press in exchange for my honest review of this book.
MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5God's GuidanceOctober 28, 2015MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The author states that she wrote this wonderful story for her four children as a Christmas gift, and what a wonderful gift this was. Written from her heart and savored over the Christmas week.
Written so children can understand and enjoy with the talking creatures, they are drawn into this of Good vs. Evil, and how easy and innocently one can be drawn to the evil side.
The chameleon is such a wonderful creature, and who wouldnt want to have one of their own? Tita as he is called by Mu, our little mistreated orphaned boy, who sure could use this fellow in his young life, and loved how he found him on the poinsettia plant
Since loosing his parents he has been living as a slave for his Uncles family, he finds Tita, and is offered a wonderful quest. Things are not always as they appear and things and perceptions changed in the blink of an eye. There is the vicious dog that ends up saving Mus life, and in the end he ends up saving his soul.
Once you start this story your children are not going to want you to stop, and your not going to want to either.
I received this book through Litfust Publicity Books Tours and was not required to give a positive review.
debsMaineAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Chameleon, a Boy and a Quest ~ J.A. MyhreOctober 24, 2015debsMaineAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a book written for children in the ages 7 to 15 years, but also very good for anyone over 15. This is one of those stories that leaves you to use your imagination and choose your own thoughts of what the significant of the story is. The book is about MU and his friend, a chameleon, that he meets one day while going on his daily chore of fetching water for his family. That is the moment that their adventure takes them on a quest that will capture your heart.
I would recommend this book to those that want to have an adventure by using your imagination. This will include finding in your heart what the true meaning and life lesson, that the friendship conveys for life. I really found this as a different type of story and keeps you reading because you want to know what is going to happen. This would be a good read for a pre-teen bible group because it creates a lot of questions about what the meaning is in the story. Each person will have a different outlook and meaning to what the author is trying to tell you. It is a very short and quick read that you may finish in one afternoon.
