*I was sent a physical copy from the author in trade of an honest review* Thank you Kimberling for sending me copies of two of your brilliant books!
As some of you might know, I've recently been really interested by children's picture books so when I received an email about this book, I just couldn't resist it. Also, I knew I needed it because it was about a black Labrador and they're just soo cute, I can't resist them!
Anyway, I read this in a couple of minutes as it is a picture book, but I really enjoyed it. The illustrations were absolutely fabulous and really added to the story and I just couldn't stop staring at them!
There is also a few lines which rhyme, which I'm a huge fan of. The storyline was great and I know that if I was a little kid, this would definitely be one of my favourite books.
It's just a big bunch of fun and every aspect of it is brilliant! There is also one or two words in this book that should challenge the child's vocabulary and overall it's brilliantly written.
I would 100% recommend this to parents to get for their children. I think this would be a great book for the age of around 6 years old + but younger children could also get a lot out if this book due to the illustrations and/or if it was read to them.

This book was a surprise for me. I opened my package from Kimberling and went to pull out what was inside and felt two books. I pulled both out and saw the one I was expecting, Do Dogs Pray?, and then saw this one. I instantly squealed because it was another picture book! I just love them! Anyway, so thank you Kimberling for including this little surprise for me and I'm very grateful!
When I read what this book was about, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect, so I jumped into this one quite unsure. However, I was greatly surprised as it turned out to be great as well!
This book talked about a very important subject, the consequences of too much sun exposure and being unprotected from the sun. My first thought was that this surely is a hard subject to put in a children's book, but Kimberling made it seem so easy I was just sat there in awe.
This is a very important message, which Kimberling managed to put it in words that a child would understand, but still keeping the book scientific and educational. I was super surprised when it turned that I was also reading stiff that was completely new to me.
It was a very original book and I thought it was great that finally someone was writing about important subjects like these, but in books for children.
This book is definitely well thought out and the illustrations were again amazing! I really enjoyed this book as well and glad that I got the opportunity to read it, so thank you again Kimberling!
Overall, I would definitely recommend these two books to anyone with young children as they would be a lot of fun and Hey! Don't Forget The Sunscreen! is also educational and would be a great learning experience for young children.
