Book Cover

Stella Strawberry: The Fruit of Love by Yira Bernard Jones is the latest Christian story book which the kids and I have reviewed.  This kids story book talks about how Stella Strawberry learned about GOD’s unconditional love for her.

Throught the pages of the first book out of a series of nine books a child learns about the definition of love. There are different explainations of love coupled with short scripture passages on the book.

Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful and endures through all circumstances.

1 Corinthian13:7

This is explained to a child by stating ” His LOVE is unconditional an Oh, so very strong. He LOVES us no matter what we do,whether we are right or wrong.

The book ends with a child’s prayer to GOD to thank for his LOVE and asking for his guidance so that the child is able to show LOVE to others around him and cherish the LOVE that he receives.

My Thoughts


My kids and I absolutely loved reading the book. Infact they asked to re-read it a few times since we started reading the book. This book is an execellent read to teach about LOVE and unconditional LOVE from GOD.

[App Review] 3 Groovy Pigs HD

3 Groovy Pigs HD

3 Groovy Pigs HD is  an interactive  version of the traditional 3 little pigs story with a twist. In this story the 3 little pigs are talented musicians who can play their chosen musical instruments very well.  They play the piano, violin and drums and have their own Groovy band.

One day the 2nd and 3rd little pig decided that they should pursue their career as individual musicians and left the eldest pig and their home in the middle of the night. This started of their adventure and encounter with the Big Bad Wolf who eventually joined their band and became the fourth member of the group.

My thoughts

I like the wide range of activities which they had within the story. My kids enjoyed reading the story and trying out all the various applications. It was as app which they  could read/play several times without getting bored.  The only difficult that they had was  blowing on the mic to help the wolf blow the house down. They skipped that activity as they had problems locating the mic on the ipad.  It would be great if there was a short video or better explanation of how to do the “blowing” then just a one liner at the bottom of the screen.


You can purchase the app for $3.99 at the iTunes Store.
