Confuzzled Books

If you are wondering what kinds of books I review and events I host, this little section is the place to look. Books I love to read: Children's, Young Adult, Paranormal and Fantasy books. Books I like to read: General Fiction, Romances, Religious Fiction, Mysteries and Biographies. So those are the genres of books I will generally review. If you send me a book outside of those areas, I'll consider it, but it may not fit my tastes. Reviews will take about 2 months to post; I try to post them around the time the book is released. On giveaways: Sending me a signed book to give away on the site is a great way to get your book noticed. I do a "mystery book" giveaway about every 2 weeks, where I read the book and twitter about it without revealing its title, then reveal what I've been reading and give it away. The whole event takes a couple weeks, and I feature the giveaway book on my blog for most of that time.

Alphabet Kids - Yang's New Dance (Alphabet Kids)

Yang's New Dance (Alphabet Kids) - Patrice Samara, Jingyi Hong Showing the plus sides to diversity in heritage the alphabet kids are always learning something new at there school. Today they learn from Yang grandfather about Tai Chi.

The kids are a curious bunch and see Yang dancing his dance at recess. Instead of making fun of his different dance they want to know more of why it is so fun to Yang, instead of playing with them. Yang grandfather teaches the children some Tai Chi moves and tells them how it can make you happy and healthy practicing these moves. No one is excluded. Everyone can do they even their teacher.

The art is cleanly drawn and captures the characters uniqueness even with out the words. I loved Yang’s New Dance because it was different story then you would find in most picture books. I loved the pleasant feeling that the kids all liked each other and seem to accept there differences.
