REVIEW by LAWonder10:
This account of Joseph Smith's First Vision is portrayed in a unique manner. Written as a graphic magazine form, the illustrations have simple captions signifying key people and key events. The illustrations of the tale builds until the main events are in full-page splendor.
Although written in a style elementary age youth will enjoy and find easy to read, it can be equally entertaining to older youth and adults. Thee illustrations are bright and colorful.
The Book begins with an introduction and a Forward, then ends with an illustrated explanation, plus, Lucy Mach Smith's near death experience.
My only negative thoughts are: The beginning following the introduction was briefly confusing. I soon realized it wasn't the beginning of the story, yet. I felt it needed to begin more precisely. I felt the rest was done very well.
I offer a Four and a Half Stars rating.
This book was gifted me with no suggestion of a posuitive review. This is my honest review

ScheDADule (Best Dad & Daughter Week): Gift for Dad from Daughter. Poetry Kindle Edition by Alex May (Author), Nina Gvozdeva (Illustrator)
REVIEW by LAWonder10:
This is a comical story of a mother leaving her daughter in the care of the Dad for a week. What first sounded like a boring day, soon became rollicking fun!
In this book of the antics of a father babysitting, "holds true" for many. Hopefully, the "more refined" fathers won't feel offended.
It is usually true, however, that mothers and fathers have very different concepts of "childcare".
There were a few phrases which felt incomplete, but most of the rhyming tale was done very well.
The illustrations by Nina Gvozdeva, were equally comical, colorful, and well-done.
I offer a Four Stars rating.
*This book was gifted me with no pressure for a positive review.
