Here’s what reviewers have to say!

“This delightful book is geared for kids ages 3-8. Amber, my daughter who is 9, said it would be good for younger kids even though she found it a little boring. The book itself is a sweet story, but it felt disjointed at times. It touches on some good lessons, like forgiveness, true friendship and the importance of home. Little ones will love the bright, colorful pictures, too.”

–Carol’s Notebook (read the full review here)

“This is a sweet story that teaches several valuable lessons. It’s full of fun sound effects: drizzle, drop, snap, crackle, and burr… And the brightly-colored illustrations are endearing. Who doesn’t love stuffed animals and cupcakes? I would love to see the movie! Of course, empathetic Esmé loved the sad/happy/emotion-evoking factors of the story.”

–Mozi Esme (see full review by clicking here)

“Drizzle, drizzle, drizzle, drop, drop and drop – reading CHARLIE AND MAMA KYNA to your children will be as much fun for you as it will be for them listening to it. The adorable stuffed animals in this book learn a lesson about forgiveness, true friendship and the importance of a home sweet home. The perfect bedtime story.”
Hamburg, Germany

“…laudable messages of friendship, love and fortitude…” “…vivid, evocative word choice…”
— Kirkus Discoveries March 2009

“Charlie And Mama Kyna is charming and colorful entertainment, as well as a welcome and highly recommended addition to family, school, and community library picture book collections.”
—Midwest Book Review

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
