toads on toast
 this is a great book for children because the reader is on the edge of there seat and it has a nice twist at the end because every one is safe and it has a recipe at the end for the reader and his /her family. I really enjoyed this book and I think a child would too. the fox changes because he doesn't eat toads any more.   gabriella
What`s up bear
What`s up bear is a wonderful rhyming children`s book.I think a small child would enjoy this book, because it is easy to read. The illustrations are nice,colourful and bright.I think that the illustrations do tell the story without having to read the text.I love this book and all the beautiful colours. Victoria

Hello from the HCS campus!

We have been discussing the Chocolate Lily books since Spring Break and will be adding our thoughts to this site very soon!  It is interesting how some of the books elicit instant attraction or distinct dislike right from first sight.  Our first challenge has been to be inquisitive and open-minded enough to go past the appearance and take into account the story, feel, depth and conclusion of each book.  It has been worth the effort.  I look forward to reading everyone's reviews!
