"Awesome Kids Story!
This story is for young children of all ages. Its a wonderful story about living with siblings and the frustration's one can have when always living close to their brothers and sisters, and how to overcome those obstacles. Such a wonderful kid story all kids will love."
"A new way to teach your child "There's No Place Like Home"
"This is one of the most well-written and thought provoking stories I've ever read. It touches on a number of the themes we try and teach our children, such as compassion, patience, and family. She does it in a way that's both entertaining and creative, showing us an old story under a new author; "There's no place like home". I loved it and am now reading it to my beautiful two year old granddaughter, and bringing it with me to our annual trip to Maui. It's a very special story that has her transfixed, as she cheers Ethel on each time I read it to her. Buy the book. You will love it."
What a cute book!!!
This story is about the adventures of Ethel and her quest to find a new home not crowded by all her brothers and sisters.
I loved the story (as an adult) and message to the reader that sometimes when we think we want something...in reality...we are actually happy with what we have. The illustrations are adorable and my nephews are going to love the trouble Ethel gets into.
There's Fun and Truth in Here
This is a lovely story well told. Kids, animals, siblings, adventure, danger- all surrounded and absorbed by warm, gentle drawings that help carry Ethel along on her quest. As in all good children's books, there's fun and truth in here.
I loved it the minute I picked it up!
A very delightful and entertaining story! I found Ethel's adventures outside of her hamster tank very meaningful and touching. Learning a lesson about how important family truly is in a sweet and fun way. Beautiful illustrations that really brings Ethel's story to life. My grandchildren are grown but I am looking forward to being able to read this lovely, adorable story to my great-grandchildren some day.
Kids will learn from and love!
Perfect for kids, easy and enjoyable to read, not to mention beautiful illustrations. Great for teaching children sharing and getting along with siblings. A creative, fun, and original story that kids will learn from and love!
Love this Book!
I loved this book! I am a librarian at an elementary school and Ethel's NEW HOME teaches children about sharing and manners, but in a fun creative way. Kids love books about animals and the artwork really keeps their attention. It makes me want to go home and buy a hamster
Got to love this little Story book!
Got to love this little Story book! I liked it from beginning to end myself ..but I really bought for my Grandkids Tristan and Tiare. They love little soft furry Critters and everything about them. These Critters come with a Great story attached ! The story is nicely told ...not too long, not too short.I am really looking forward to reading it to and with my Grandchildren.The Kids can learn some about Family and Life through this book without getting too in depth. It is nicely done that way,so the kids can learn something in a fun interesting and exciting way.Ethels New Home is just the right book to have to read to your Children or Grandchildren or for them to read it to you or to themselves over and over again.It really was a fun read.
