Wild Creatures In My Neighborhood and What if I Went to the Circus by: Cheryl Carpinello

About the Books:

Title: Grandma and Grandpa’s Tales Books 1 - 6

Author: Cheryl Carpinello
Publisher: Silver Quill Publishing
Genre: Children’s Picture Books (Ages 4 – 8)


Grandma and Grandpa’s Tales books 1-3 encourage early readers with fun stories
incorporating difference aspects of nature. Book 1, Wild Creatures In My
Neighborhood and What if I Went to the Circus, explores the wildlife around
neighborhoods and introduces decision-making. Book 2, Singers of Songs and The Not
Too Stubborn Humpback, explores a common, but not so common insect, and lets
readers see that being stubborn isn’t always good. Book 3, Vampires in the Backyard
and A Fish Tale, introduces readers to an extended metaphor and lets them decide if
the fish story is real.

I was able to review a pdf copy of Grandma's Tales Book 1: Wild Creatures in My Neighborhood and What if I Went to the Circus.  This book would be a very good read for early readers.  The story was fun and I was able to make connections with Wild Creatures in My Neighborhood as here just the other day we were driving past a golf course in town and there in the middle of the course stood three deer eating grass as if they belonged there.  I live in a fair size town 50,000 +.  We have a river that runs through our town and on the other side of the dyck where the golf course is the river.  Also I've woken on a summer night to skunk smell outside my bedroom window.  We have had raccoon in our yard as well.  My husband has also spotted an owl in the tree outside our house too.  The story What if I Went to the Circus is a cute tale on animals Jackson brought home from the circus, but in the end he decides that maybe his sister would be a better playmate choice.  Both these books were so adorable.  I can't wait to share them with my own Grandson soon.

About the Author      

Cheryl Carpinello taught high school English for 25 years. During that time, she worked with
numerous students who didn’t like to read for a variety of reasons. However, she discovered that
even the most reluctant readers became engaged in the classroom and in reading when she
introduced units on King Arthur and the works of ancient world writers. Upon retiring, she set
out to write fast-paced, action-filled stories in these setting to encourage young readers to read
more. Her success with readers aged 8-16 led her to reach out to the youngest of readers and
those readers just starting out. Revising stories she had written for her own children, she
created Grandma/Grandpa’s Tales for ages 4-7.  Her four grandchildren's conversations
created the stories in Book 3 of this series.
