#atozchallenge R is for Ronel, Rainbow Colors, Rook, Room 42

#AtoZChallenge 2021 April Blogging from A to Z Challenge letter R

An alphabet of J's favorite blogs

R is for
I love THIS blog because:
  • Ronel is a great blogger! I adore her to bits.
  • Ronel has great book reviews. 
  • Check out the A to Z posts! So much knowledge. 🧚‍♂️🧚‍♀️ Faerie folk are so very well researched.
  • I've read and reviewed three great books from  Ronel Janse van Vuuren  (plus some anthologies she's been in)      

#atozchallenge Usborne books for Children

“Rainbow Colors” is from Usborne’s ‘Hello, Baby!’ series. It is a cloth book with colorful characters, but what makes this book unique is the rattle/teether handle! This book is great for on-the-go with baby and for increasing their vocabulary at a young age!

  1. I have CD's book and really need to read it soon.

    1. There was about an hour that this post was live with the letter "T" books instead of the "R" ones. I don't know how I did it. But I caught and fixed it. I'm guessing you use a subscription service that didn't pick-up the change.

      So, if anyone wonders about the CDGallantKing book, it'll be up on t day.
      And Alex, if you see that same list in two days and think you've gone mad... you have. 😉😆

  2. I have been to that blog. I love books for the youngest ones! It's never too early, never, to start reading to children. If I may include any being of myth or fairy tale, then I pick Goblin Market, by Cristina Rossetti. A poem, but a story. Some editions have incredible illustrations.

  3. "There's still time‼️Usborne is offering FREE SHIPPING through tonight at 11:59 PM CT (please note central time!) on all qualifying orders over $75.00*."

    Saw that on Mowers Facebook.

  4. I've been enjoying Ronel's A-Z posts this year! :-)

  5. I have been to Ronel's blog every day during this A to Z challenge. Lots of interesting mythology facts and trivia there.

  6. I've found that the more I enjoy a book, the easier it is to write the review. You've written a very thorough book review at Operation Awesome and obviously enjoyed reading the book.

  7. Aw, thanks for the shout-out, J :-)

  8. Thank you for being my R in my personal scavenger hunt. Since I didn't make it in the month of April, I'm using it as my road trip game - you know, like sitting in the car and trying to find every state's license plate?
